Steam turbines, being mechanical equipment, undergo wear and tear over time due to their extreme conditions. The steam turbine MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) market plays a critical role in supporting the efficient and reliable operation of steam turbines used in power generation.

The global steam turbine MRO market is driven by efforts to reduce energy demand and supply gaps, as well as the development of thermal power projects. Governments and power plant operators worldwide are focused on optimizing energy resources and minimizing downtime.

The market growth of steam turbine MRO faces challenges due to stringent government regulations that aim to reduce reliance on traditional energy sources, such as coal-fired power generation, in favor of renewable alternatives. This shift poses a challenge for steam turbine MRO providers as power plants transition to renewable energy sources, impacting the demand for MRO services in the traditional thermal power sector.

The competitive cost of renewable technologies presents a hurdle for the steam turbine MRO market trends. The decline in costs of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, make them attractive alternatives to traditional thermal power generation. This cost competitiveness may reduce the investment in MRO services for steam turbines.

By service providers, the original equipment manufacturers segment has market share about three-fifths of the global market in 2022.

By fuel type, the coal segment is estimated to display the highest growth rate, in terms of revenue, registering a CAGR of 5.0% from 2023 to 2032.

By capacity, the 300 MW to 599 MW segment has half of the global steam turbine MRO market share in 2022.

On the basis of the end-use industry, the power generation segment is anticipated to exhibit the highest market share till 2032.
