India Power EPC Market Outlook 2031:
The India power EPC market size was valued at USD 13.30 Billion in 2022 and is likely to reach USD 83.84 Billion by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 22.7% during 2023–2031. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing industrial operations across various sectors, sustained economic growth and government initiatives such as “power for all”.
India power EPC market is on the verge of significant changes that has redefined the industry outlook. Power sector in India is one of the most diversified in the world, sources of power generation include conventional sources such as coal, natural gas, oil, lignite, nuclear power, and non-conventional sources such as solar, wind, and biomass.
In 2018, India ranked fourth in wind power and fifth in renewable power installed capacity. India made significant investments in clean energy which is estimated at USD 90 billion and is only country among the G20 nations that is on track to achieve the targets under the Paris Agreement.
India power EPC market has attracted significant foreign direct investments (FDI) in the past two decades which is anticipated to be more than USD 15 billion accounting for 3% of total FDI inflow. There is a considerable interest from government of India in the power sector which has led to more focused approach in promoting sustained industrial growth in the recent years.
Electricity production was estimated at 1,252.72 billion units (BU) in FY20c and total installed capacity of power stations in India was recorded at 380 GW as of January 2021.
According to Central Electricity Authority (CEA) the share of renewable energy generation would increase from 18% to 44% by 2029-30 and thermal is expected to see reduction from 78% to 52%. The government of India plans to establish renewable capacity if 500 GW by 2030 and has allocated USD 1.4 trillion under the National Infrastructure Pipeline for FY 2019-25. India’s power consumption showed a considerable increase to 50.15 billion units (BU) in the year 2020, direct result of growing economic activity.

India Power EPC Market Segment Insights
Thermal segment is projected to account for a major market share
Based on power generation, the India EPC power market is segmented into thermal, hydro, nuclear, solar, wind, and other renewables. The thermal segment is expected to account for a key share of the market during the forecast period. According to National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency India has a total thermal capacity of 234 Gigawatts (GW) as of April 2021, energy is generated from fossil fuels combustion, such as coal, natural gas, and oil.
53% of the thermal power is obtained from coal and the rest for other sources such as gas and oil. Sustained economic growth, rapid infrastructural advancements, and increasing government initiatives is expected to drive the segment growth in the coming years.
On the other hand, solar and wind segments is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the rapid wide-scale transmission towards clean energy in the recent years. India has set targets to increase solar energy which is estimated to contribute 114 GW and 67 GW for wind energy subsequently by 2022, the plans for establishing clean power grid infrastructure in the country is anticipated to spur the market expansion at a steady CAGR during the forecast period.
Power Transmission and Distribution (TD) is expected to grow at a robust rate
Power transmission and distribution is an essential part of EPC power sector and is as important as power generation. Power transmission and distribution segment of India EPC power market is expected to grow at a robust rate owing to the significant upgrades in TD network in the recent years. The rapid growth rate is attributed to governments initiatives such as “power for all”, where it has set targets to immensely improve the transmission and distribution network during the forecast period.
Need for electrification of more areas were realized for economic growth and with the changing scenario, the transmission sector started to move towards integrated system planning due to generation capabilities being unevenly distributed in different regions across the country.
Thermal Power Plants segment is anticipated to constitute for large market share
In terms of power plants, the India EPC power market is segregated into hydroelectric power plants, thermal power plants, and nuclear power plants. Thermal power plans segment is anticipated to constitute for large market share during the forecast period. More than 65% of electricity consumed in India are generated by thermal power plants.
