ADVANCED INDUSTRY: Energy Management, CHP Drive Market Growth

Posted by Bob Keough on Jun 15, 2021 11:20:50 AM

This post is the seventh in a series of excerpts from the Advanced Energy Now 2021 Market Report, prepared for AEE by Guidehouse Insights.

Advanced Industry consists of two subsegments: Manufacturing Machinery and Process Equipment and Industrial Combined Heat and Power (CHP). Manufacturing Machinery and Process Equipment tracks sales of industrial energy management systems, which are software and services for energy management within an industrial facility or across an enterprise to meet efficiency, cost savings, and sustainability targets while maintaining optimal operation of production processes.

In the United States, Advanced Industry revenue grew 10% overall from 2019 to 2020, to $11.6 billion. Since 2011, U.S. Advanced Industry revenue has more than doubled, growing at a CAGR of 12%. U.S. Manufacturing Machinery and Process Equipment revenue increased 10%, to $7.0 billion, in 2020, based on sales of industrial energy management systems. CHP revenue increased by 9% year-over-year, to $4.6 billion, following 13% growth in 2019. Though smaller in the United States than Manufacturing Machinery and Process Equipment, Industrial CHP has grown faster over the 2011-2020 time period, at 18% CAGR versus 9% for Manufacturing Machinery and Process Equipment.

Fuel Production opener

This post is the fifth in a series of excerpts from the Advanced Energy Now 2021 Market Report, prepared for AEE by Guidehouse Insights.

Advanced Fuel Production took a bit hit in 2020. Global revenue fell to $184.3 billion, following its highest year on record in 2019 at $221.8 billion. The United States experienced an even steeper revenue decline, down 38%, to $33.6 billion. This drop was largely due to volatility in Ethanol and Butanol revenue, which fell sharply in the U.S. in 2020 (47%) following 101% growth in 2019. Hard hit by COVID-19, U.S. ethanol consumption fell from 15.8 billion gallons in 2019 to 13.7 billion gallons in 2020. The Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) for Global Advanced Fuel Production revenue over the 2011-2018 period was 6%, while in the United States CAGR was -3%.

ADVANCED ELECTRICITY GENERATION: Wind Powers 10% Revenue Growth in 2020

Posted by Bob Keough on May 24, 2021 4:00:00 PM

This post is the fourth in a series of excerpts from the Advanced Energy Now 2021 Market Report, prepared for AEE by Guidehouse Insights.

At $384.4 billion, Advanced Electricity Generation is the largest advanced energy segment globally and the second largest segment of the U.S. advanced energy market, at $39.8 billion. Global revenue fell 10% from 2018 to 2019 and stayed largely flat (down less than 1%) in 2020, but this weakness masks significant growth in solar in 2019 and wind in 2020. In the U.S., advanced generation revenue has grown in each of the past two years and was up 10% overall in 2020, with solar and wind both up in 2019 and wind growing dramatically last year.

Advanced Transportation AEN 2021

This post is the third in a series of excerpts from the Advanced Energy Now 2021 Market Report, prepared for AEE by Guidehouse Insights.

Advanced Transportation was the third largest advanced energy segment worldwide in 2020, with an estimated $318.9 billion in revenue, with 15% growth from 2019 to 2020, highest of all segments. Globally, Advanced Transportation revenue has grown at an 18% CAGR since 2011. Driving much of this growth is the recent boom in plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) sales. Global PEV revenue has grown at a staggering CAGR of 59% since 2011, reaching $120 billion in 2020. Outside of a year in 2018, PEV revenues have grown by at least 25% every year, with most years registering over 60% annual growth. Since 2011, U.S. Advanced Transportation revenue has grown at a compound annual rate of 17%. As with global markets, surging PEV sales have driven overall Advanced Transportation revenue upward, reaching nearly $37.7 billion in 2020.
