The rise of renewable energy continues

The rise of renewable energy continues
With prices for both solar and wind continuing to decline, renewable investment keeps booming at the expense of traditional power generation. Lower project costs and continued regulatory support for renewable energy in key markets will see global renewable power investment reach $243.1bn in 2017, with solar photovoltaic (PV) the fastest growing segment, followed by wind power – by 2020 non-hydro renewables will account for 65% of global power investment.

Solar PV is fastest growing renewable energy segment

Solar PV is fastest growing renewable energy segment
There are many driving market opportunities in the power industry including increased decentralisation, the need to decarbonise electricity generation, and digitisation to boost operational efficiency. Continued regulatory support for renewable energy in key markets will see global power investment reach $443.5bn in 2017. Solar photovoltaic (PV) will be the fastest growing segment, followed by wind power, accounting for 37.5% and 21% of global investment, respectively, by 2020.

Rising solar power generation will aid MLPE market growth

Rising solar power generation will aid MLPE market growth
The module-level power electronics industry is witnessing an intense growth phase. Demand is driven by increasing solar photovoltaic (PV) installations across the globe and modernisation of grid infrastructure capable of accommodating Module-Level Power Electronics (MLPE) technology within the system. Manoj Shankar, Energy and Environment Research Analyst, said: “With movement towards renewable power and distributed power sources, the MLPE market is expected to sustain further significant growth in all regions of the globe.

Solar PV arrives as a mainstream technology

Solar PV arrives as a mainstream technology
Solar power is finally maturing as a key energy source on the global stage. In addition to green targets, energy independence and distributed energy, a crucial market accelerator has been the defining of the structure of Feed-in Tariff (FiT) for solar PV-generated power. Along with regulatory dynamics and incentives, this has lowered the Levelised Cost Of Electricity (LCOE) of solar power.

Longer turbine blades bode well for composite materials manufacturers

Escalating energy demand and improving wind turbine technologies are fuelling the wind energy market and encouraging wind turbine installations. In turn, this is boosting the consumption of high-performance and lightweight blade materials, such as fibre, resins and core foam materials that can be used to increase blade length while keeping blade weight low.

'Connected life market' to value $700bn by 2020

We are living a connected life in a connected world. Our smartphone is our gateway to the world and very soon we will be able to connect our glasses, watch, thermostat, lights, door locks and car. The connected life market has been valued by Frost & Sullivan at over $700bn by 2020, but are companies prepared to drive and manage this change to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving world in which we live?

The growth of industrial waste heat recovery

There are three common industrial waste heat management options: recycling within the same heating system; recovery of the waste heat to be used in other systems within the same plant; and converting the waste heat to power. 'Innovations in Industrial Waste Heat Management', an analysis from Frost & Sullivan, reveals that of the three processes, converting waste heat to power will be the most preferred option in the future.

Consistent Innovation Secures Future of Global Medical Battery Market, Finds Frost & Sullivan

The global medical batteries market is expected to experience sustained growth owing to technological advancements and booming regional demand. Strong potential offered by emerging economies, especially in the Asia-Pacific, will offset the sluggish growth rates in mature markets such as North America and Europe. Market growth will be bolstered by the increasing acceptance of wireless medical devices and continuing innovation, especially in high energy density batteries for wearable medical devices.

European renewable energy consumption drives bearings demand

Frost and Sullivan have today released a new report, European Bearings Market, which finds that the market earned revenues of more than $12.32 billion in 2012 and estimates this to reach $13.64 billion in 2017. The research covers ball bearings as well as tapered, needle, cylindrical and spherical roller bearings.

Renewable Energy Policies To Negatively Impact Solar And Wind Frequency Inverters Market In Europe

Policy changes in the renewable energy sector and the ongoing debt crisis are set to have a profound impact on the market for frequency inverters in the solar and wind energy industries across Europe. While the reduction in subsidies is expected to dampen the European market in the near future, low maintenance costs and the promise of high returns on investment will buoy frequency inverter market revenues during this turbulent phase. Unlike Europe, the market is expected to see strong growth in other regions such as Asia and North America.

Energy Efficiency to Emerge as Key Purchase Criterion for Pumps in the Oil and Gas Industry, Says Frost & Sullivan

The oil and gas industry in Europe has been through economic vagaries in the last 10 years with financing difficulties and low oil prices resulting in several projects being either postponed or abandoned altogether. This, in turn, has affected the uptake of pumps by the industry. Nevertheless, demand for pumps is set to grow steadily as projects gradually start being revived.
