One trend in the market is automation of industries.

Automation of industries is gaining momentum as computers and machines are being adopted for effective and efficient control systems. To maintain optimum productivity, the cost of operations, quality of the product, and safety, industries are forced to adopt automation to maintain its competitiveness in the market.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is applicability in harsh environments. Thermoelectric generators are more suitable to harsh environmental conditions such as in offshore oil and gas pipelines and space probes where battery operated systems cannot withstand harsh conditions, resulting in a lesser lifespan of electric components.

However, energy harvesters like thermoelectric generators have the upper hand due to their small dimension, longer lifespan, and no system maintenance and replacement. These factors facilitate the easy and non-invasive application of TEGs.

About Thermoelectric Generator

A thermoelectric generator (TEG) is a device that is primarily used for energy generation. It can also be used as a heat pump.

As energy generators, TEGs convert waste heat into electricity. As heat pumps, they transfer heat to a device from one side to the other.

Therefore, TEGs are like heat engines but are compact in size, silent, and have no moving parts. TEGs have a longer operational life and have no maintenance requirements, which makes them a preferred choice for unmanned sites like offshore gas pipelines.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is low conversion efficiency. TEGs convert waste heat into electrical energy.

However, as per the University of the Pacific, TEGs have an efficiency of only 4%. Efficiency measurement holds a significant importance in the deployment of thermoelectric generators as well as for research in thermoelectric materials.

The efficiency calculation cannot be done directly as all the parameters of materials are temperature dependent. A TEG will operate efficiently only if the supply of electrical current to the device is equal to the electrical resistance of a device.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
