The utilities industry consists of the electricity, gas and water markets. The electricity retailing market consists of the net consumption of electricity by end-users, segmented by industrial, transportation, commercial and public services, and residential consumption. The gas utilities market covers all natural gas consumption, net of distribution or transmission losses, by end-users in the following categories: industrial (including use as a feedstock and auto generation), commercial and public-sector organizations, residential consumers, electric power generation (including combined heat and power but excluding auto generation and heat plant), and other (including transport, agriculture, centralized heat plant, and other usage). The water utilities industry consists of all water that is collected, treated and distributed to agricultural, industrial, and residential end-users.
The French utilities industry is forecast to generate total revenues of $108.1bn in 2016, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -1% between 2012 and 2016.
The electricity segment is expected to be the industry's most lucrative in 2016, with total revenues of $61.9bn, equivalent to 57.3% of the industry's overall value.
This poor performance is due in part to sluggish economic growth and a drop in the value of wholesale power, which was passed on largely to consumers. In the future growth is expected to remain poor; however a more rapid return to strong economic performance could result in increased growth, if the French government decided to increase privatization by selling off some of its shares in EDF and Engie.
