DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/bnrxt9/coal_fired_power) has announced the addition of the "Coal Fired Power Generation Market for Residential and Commercial Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends & Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
Coal fired power has been the most steady source of electricity for various industries such as refineries, textiles, steel, chemicals and others. These industries along with the IT sector and other commercial ventures have shown the greatest demand for power and are hence the largest market for coal fired power generation. At the same time, huge advances in urbanization and greater demand for power in day-to-day life have been driving the market for residential applications of coal fired power. Many residential areas have also turned towards solar power and hydro power for their energy needs and this has reduced their share in the coal fired power generation market over the past decade. As a result, commercial applications were the larger market and accounted for over 55% of the market in 2012.
Ready availability of raw material in Asia Pacific has enabled the region to become the foremost coal producer in the world. Countries such as China, Australia, India, Indonesia and others have become the largest producers of coal in the past few decades with large quantities of resources available in the vicinity. As a result, countries in Asia Pacific have come to depend on coal fired power for their energy needs. China leads the world in terms of installed capacities of coal fired power generation. Owing to these factors, Asia Pacific accounted for over 50% of the total installed capacities of coal fired power in the world. It is anticipated that Asia Pacific would also show the highest growth rate with large number of power stations under development and relatively higher dependence on coal for energy needs. North America was the other major market in terms of installed capacities followed by Europe while RoW has exhibited more dependence on renewable energy rather than on coal.
