Oil Price Collapse—Threat or Opportunity?

With the recent plunge in crude oil prices, it is a good time to think about the relationship between crude oil and the energy and environment markets. Many believe that the downward trend is temporary, with superficial impact on the markets. Although prices continue to plummet, industry challenges and operation cost still remain acute such as cost of power transmission and distribution. Other industry challenges include high non-revenue water with low electricity tariff for water utilities, lukewarm uptake of renewable energy, and random development of smart cities and green buildings. The study focuses on the above-mentioned developments as well as current and future trends of the Asia-Pacific energy and environment industries in 2015.

Key Findings

-The top trends of the energy and environment industry in Asia-Pacific (APAC) in 2015 are:
oOil Price in the New Normal Territory?
oLower liquefied natural gas (LNG) Prices Invigorate Gas to Power Market
oRenewable Energy (RE)—An Indirect Beneficiary of Oil Price Slump
oSolar Power to Remain Resilient
oAsset Replacement and Smart Distribution for Power Utilities
oElectricity Deregulation to Stimulate Energy Storage System (ESS)
oThe Race to Build Smart Cities Begins
oEnergy Efficiency Gains to Increase Traction
oWater Utilities Struggle to Keep Cost Low
oMembranes as Alternative Water Treatment Technology Create Waves
-In 2015, the global oil price recovery is expected to be slow, and the price is likely to go down before it picks up.
-Low oil prices will help governments in APAC to push for structural reforms to use gas as an energy source.
-Selected RE will witness unprecedented growth in 2015. Special attention should be given to wind energy and solar photovoltaics (PV).
-APAC will remain a strong market for solar, led by China and India.
-Transmission and distribution (T&D) investments in the APAC region are expected to grow at % in 2015. Immediate and potent opportunities in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will be in Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
-Incentives and government support will be required to sustain the ESS development.
-Energy efficiency will be the highlight in the buildings industry. Investments of up to $ billion can be expected annually until 2020 in the APAC smart city technologies market.
-The year 2015 will witness increased mergers and acquisitions (M&As) of integrated facilities management (IFM) and facilities management (FM) companies.
-Political will and partnership with private sector will be required to keep operations cost in water utilities low.
-New start-ups in membrane technologies and other water treatment technologies will drive the water industry in APAC.
