The gas turbine market in Europe is expected to grow from US$ 5,011.4 million in 2018 to US$ 6,625.6 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2019 to 2027.
Gas turbines are included in the portfolio of distributer power technologies. The emergence of innovative aero-derivative gas turbines has increases the strength of distributed power systems. During natural disasters, gas turbines are used as a generate power to avoid blackouts and restore power. Moreover, the gas-powered mobile distributed power technologies can easily be connected to the existing natural gas pipelines to avoid the diesel supply issues during natural disasters. The gas turbines can be used in standalone applications and combined heat and power (CHP) applications that can offer high pressure and electricity to commercial and industrial facilities. In distributed power generation, these turbines produce greater quantities of power in a given space. Thus, an increase in the trend for distributed power generation is expected to bolster the demand for gas turbines in the near future.

In Europe, UK is the hardest-hit country by the COVID-19 outbreak, followed by Italy. It is expected to suffer an economic hit due to a lack of revenue from various industries. Other European Union member states have implemented drastic measures and travel restrictions, including partially closing their borders. This is anticipated to impact the gas turbine market growth in Europe.

The combined cycle segment led the gas turbine market, based on technology, in 2018. The combined cycle power system technology is a well-known and traditional choice for most of the large onshore power generation plants. A combined cycle power system consists of gas turbines, steam turbines, and waste heat recovery units for steam generators, and auxiliary equipment and condensers. The combined cycle technology mainly uses a gas turbine for driving an electrical generator and recovers the waste heat produced in the turbine exhaust in order to generate steam. Then this steam from the waste heat is made to run through a steam turbine for the purpose of providing additional electricity. Combined cycle technology is suitable for stable load applications, which ultimately drives the gas turbine market in European countries.
