Research and Markets: South Korea Power Sector Updated 2012 Version


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "South Korea Power Sector" report to their offering.

The South Korean power sector benefits from a solid economy of the country as well as a stable regulatory framework. However, instability in the region with its neighbor North Korea has proved to be a threat in the past for the country.

The power sector in South Korea does not account for a majority of the share of the Asia Pacific regional power generation and is expected to account for a bit less than six percent of the total Asia Pacific regional power generation by 2015.

Oil, followed by coal, is the dominant fuel in the country and oil accounts of over 40 percent of the primary energy demand in 2010. Coal accounted for 31 percent, followed by nuclear energy and natural gas.

With a considerable market size and established competitive landscape, the South Korean power sector is expected to have a moderate growth in the coming years.
