General Electric has been much in the news in the past few years, as it seeks to bolster its sagging financial posture by spinning off many segments of its overall business. Earlier divestitures included NBC Universal, its appliance business, and much of GE Capital – the finance arm that devastated the company during the financial crisis. The company has held on to its aircraft leasing operation, GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), which buys a variety of aircraft from various manufacturers and then leases them to airlines. More recently, GE announced that it has completed substantially all of its $20 billion industrial asset sale plan. In February 2019, GE also announced the sale of its BioPharma business to Danaher Corporation for more than $21 billion. GE has further options to generate cash to help bring down leverage, including its remaining 50.4% interest in oilfield service provider, Baker Hughes. During 2018, GE also took the painful decision to reduce its quarterly dividend to just 1 cent per share allowing the company to retain about $4 billion of cash per year compared to the former payout level.

However, the company has wisely elected to retain its world Energy business in which it holds a dominant position in many segments. Illustrative of this is its present and projected position in the world Market for Gas and Steam-powered Electrical Generation Systems.

Commanding Market Position - Analysts at Forecast International, who track world turbine markets in intimate detail, project that over the period 2019 through 2033, in just its Gas and Steam-powered Electrical Generation business, GE Energy will command 46.4% of the world market or $72.7 Billion, while its subsidiary Baker Hughes in Italy, will add another 1.5 Billion. All told, GE's market share will total 47.3%, with a value in excess of $74 billion. This figure is based on the production value of the installed power systems alone, and does not include the revenues from maintenance and overhaul, spare parts, components, and other special contracting business. As shown, there are many small manufacturers, but GE's main competition will come from Siemens in Europe, with 20.8%, followed by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) in Japan, with 16.4%.

Long Term Trend - The growth outlook in this segment is an optimistic one. As demonstrated in the bar graph, the world Power Generation market is currently impacted by an excess of unsold inventory and is going through a short term dip, after which growing world demand for ever more electrical power will absorb this over-capacity and generate a solid growth pattern through 2033 and beyond.

World Distribution by End-User - The second pie graph provides an interesting illustration of the end-user distribution of these systems through 2028. It is noteworthy that while North America will comprise the largest market for the relatively near term, we expect the relative market share of Asia to grow much more rapidly over time, as China, India, and other rapidly developing countries create new demand for power.
