Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Power shortages, industry deregulation and the implementation of a market mechanism stimulated growth in China's power sector over recent years. These deregulation measures, combined with increases in the number of thermal power generation plants, contributed to growth in revenue for the Thermal Power Generation industry. Over the past five years, industry revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 4.5%. In the past two years, hydroelectric power output increased strongly, which negatively affected thermal power generation, however. In 2015, revenue from the Thermal Power Generation industry in China was estimated at $233.3 billion, up 0.3% from 2014.

Thermal power generation accounted for about 75.4% of the country's total electricity generation in 2014, down from 83.2%.... purchase to read more
