Turned over: Demand for green turbines may be buoyed as firms invest in clean energy

The Engine and Turbine Manufacturing industry has endured a period of turbulent operating conditions in recent years. Despite efforts to decarbonise the global supply chain as downstream industrial firms attempt to align with emissions reduction targets, which has ultimately supported demand for energy-efficient turbines, import penetration has remained at unprecedented levels throughout the past five years and blighted industry growth. Meanwhile, tough trading conditions in global industrial markets have resulted in severe volatility in the industry's performance. Over the five-year period through 2019-20, industry revenue is forecast to decline at a compound annual rate of 0.9%.In 2019-20, revenue is expected to grow by 3.4% to reach just shy of £8 billion...read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The weak pound since the EU referendum supported demand for UK engines and growth
  • Despite the weak pound, import penetration is expected to have remained high over the period
  • The share of electricity generated from renewable sources is anticipated to continue to grow
  • Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

    The industry has endured turbulent operating conditions. Over the past decade, a global movement to decarbonise the supply chain has gained momentum, and a trend towards clean energy has benefited manufacturers of hydraulic and wind turbines and combined cycle gas turbines (CCGTs). Many downstream industrial firms have upgraded pre-existing capital with more energy-efficient equipment to regulate high energy costs and align with greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. However, buoyancy in alternative energy generation markets has been unable to stem volatility in the industry’s overall performance due to tough trading conditions in the global industrial sector, anomalistic trends in export markets and a slowdown in domestic capital investment since the EU referendum.
