How big is the coal-fired power generation market?

The global coal fired power generation market size reached 2,100 GW in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 2,501 GW by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.9% during 2023-2028.

What is the coal-fired power generation?

Coal-fired power generation refers to the process of producing electricity by burning coal in power plants. It relies on pulverized coal (PC) plants, fluidized bed combustion (FBC) plants, and integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plants, where coal is crushed into tiny particles, mixed with limestone or dolomite, and heated and combusted at a lower temperature. It can provide a steady and consistent electricity supply, making it suitable for baseload power generation. It helps to minimize the dependence on imported energy resources and provides a reliable source of energy by utilizing coal. Coal-fired power generation is predominantly used to provide electricity to the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
