The Turboexpander Market size is projected to reach US$ 1,856.47 million by 2031 from US$ 1,158.69 million in 2023. The market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.1% in 2023–2031. The significantly growing demand for natural gas is likely to remain a key turboexpander market trend.

Turboexpander Market Analysis

A turboexpander primarily reduces the pressure of a gas stream by facilitating expansion. As an outcome, the enthalpy and temperature of the gas are decreased. This decline in temperature is accompanied by the condensation of substantial hydrocarbons into liquids. Turboexpanders help attain isentropic power as high as 90%, which results in much lower discharge temperatures. The high reliability of turboexpanders is attributed to their minimalistic construction and hermetically sealed design. Some plants have been operating with the same turboexpander for many decades, following a proper maintenance schedule. The main advantages of turboexpanders over regulators are that the former can moderate and reduce the gas pressure to a desired level, and electricity can be generated from the energy attained from a reduced gas pressure.

Turboexpander Market Overview

Turbine efficiency is one of the major parameters that determine the efficiency and competence of a turboexpander system. As a turboexpander consumes high power, a slight improvement in turbine effectiveness leads to a major improvement in system efficiency. The aerodynamic performance of turbomachines varies on the mean-line design methodology of the rotor and stator. The flexibility and competence of turboexpanders led to a diversity of configurations, which make them flexible in diverse applications. Increasing focus on turbans with high speed and precision is one of the major trends in the turboexpanders market.

Turboexpander Market Drivers and Opportunities

Easy Regulation, Low Maintenance Requirements, and High Efficiency to Favor Market

Turboexpanders are critical in applications such as industrial gas processing, power recovery, and power generation. They are commonly used in the natural gas industry for liquification and dewpoint management. They are also used in the petrochemical industry primarily for ethylene plant refrigeration and air separation. A sustained performance of this equipment is crucial for the profitability of a business. A turboexpander can aid in attaining the same pressure drop more effortlessly than a valve. Easy regulation and moderate maintenance requirements are a few of the major features of turboexpanders.

Nonetheless, turboexpanders need to be monitored frequently after commissioning and in the initial stage of installation. The design of turboexpanders may vary depending on the plant type. However, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have standardized a few of the common components, and some critical parts are exclusive to specific machines. Thus, low maintenance, convenient design, and high efficiency in applications are the major factors driving the turboexpanders market.

Development of Cryogenic Expanders– An Opportunity in Turboexpander Market

Cryogenic liquids are gases in the liquefied form at low-temperature conditions. Cryogenic turbines facilitate the expansion of liquefied gas to decrease pressure and convert hydraulic energy to electric energy to control the enthalpy of liquefied gas and aid energy recovery. The cryogenic expanders are being used in diverse application areas, including refineries, ethylene plants, air separation facilities, and gas processing plants. These expanders help in generating the coldest level of refrigeration and large quantities of liquid are condensed in the gas expansion process. Thus, advancements in cryogenic turbines are anticipated to provide growth opportunities in the turboexpanders market during the forecast period.
