The Global Generator Sales Market was valued at nearly US$ 19.15 Bn in 2018 and is projected to reach approximately US$ 29.9 Bn by the end of 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.79% in the forecast period.

Electricity has been an economic engine for the world for more than a century providing a reliable source of power. It plays a significant role in the economic prosperity of the world. The industrial revolution and globalization are only possible through the invention of electricity. However, several parts of the world still lack this amazing facility due to the unavailability of the grid. Thus, to come out of this tragic condition, generators are widely used to electrify homes, business, manufacturing units, and so on. Generators are the most versatile power generation equipment which is applied in various industries due to its flexibility and high efficiency.

It not only helps in rescuing power outage situation but also assist industries in avoiding heavy losses due to the power outage. Generators are mainly used to provide emergency power backup or to provide continuous power. In many industrial applications, generators have been deployed as an emergency power backup. But in some cases where grid infrastructure is not available or operation has to be carried out in secluded places, generators are the only option left.

The ongoing demand for oil and gas, growing mining industry, tremendous constructional development, massive investment in the pharmaceutical industry, and many other business units have added significant value in the growth of the global market. In the forecasting period, it has been observed that the growth of the generator is steady over the upcoming decade, but the global market will not see any tragic decline in the global generator sales market growth. Therefore, the global generators sales market is likely to see positive growth due to slow-moving grid infrastructure program, rising exploration and production of oil and gas, the enormous investment in mining and construction, etc. which will accelerate the global market growth.

Diesel Generators Account Lion’s Share in The Generator Market by Fuel Type

Electricity is an essential part of our daily life. Due to a lack of grid infrastructure and power requirement in remote locations, flexible power solution equipment is necessary to meet the power demand. Diesel generators are widely used in many areas where electrical power is unreliable or non-existent. Generators are used as a supplement to the main power supply, or as the main power supply as well as an emergency backup for hospitals, commercial building, manufacturing units and in several applications. One of the main reason for the high adoption of diesel generator in the global generator sales market is due to its high efficiency, low maintenance, higher life, and low cost of the fuel. They are highly versatile in operation and are able to withstand critical power requirement which made them the most suitable generator for a wide variety of applications.

A diesel generator is driven by a diesel engine which drives an alternator to produce electrical energy. They are classified according to cycle types such as two-stroke and four-stroke. However, the bulk of the IC engine uses a four-stroke cycle owing to its ability to achieve higher torque, excellent fuel efficiency, and higher durability. Thus, in many industrial applications and to meet instant demand of power, diesel generators are utilized. But in the recent period, pollution is at an alarming level and to mitigate this severe threat, the international fraternity has framed strict emission norms. Hence the manufacturers are looking at it prudently to meet the emission guidelines framed by the government and private institutions. Adding to this, a diesel generator is forecasted to dominate the generator market as gas generator lacks the infrastructural facility. Due to inadequate gas infrastructure in Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa where the major share of the generator sales market accounted attributing the possibilities for the growth of the diesel generator.

Increasing Investments Across Different Sectors is Projected to Fuel End User Generator Sales Growth

In terms of end-user, oil & gas industry followed by mining and construction is expected to dominate the global market in the world. The crude oil is the primary source of energy in most of the countries across the globe due to its feasibility in transportation & applications in a wide variety of sectors. Oil and gas companies are continuously striving to meet such a massive demand for hydrocarbon by exploring new reserves which are expected to increase the market. In many parts of the world, the grid infrastructure is not enough to provide access to electricity. As per the world bank, around 1.2 billion people across the world are out of bound to electricity. Thus in many cases, the government and local authority are adopting this gensets to provide electricity in remote locations. Also, the tremendous economic development in Asia Pacific has ironically increased the energy demand and rapid development in mining, infrastructure, pharmaceuticals, marine, etc. is excessively enhanced the consumption of generators in this sectors, augmenting the global generator sales market revenue.

Report Coverage

Electricity has been an integral part of our daily life, and one cannot imagine the world without it. Technological advancement and ongoing development have regularly increased the consumption of electricity. The modern world has been emerging in many fields such as information & communication technology, consumer electronics, manufacturing plants, and so on which require a sizeable amount of electricity for its operation. In most of the cases, it is quite challenging to achieve such a huge demand which creates a negative impact on daily life and business sector. Thus several companies and manufacturing plants own their separate power generation units, i.e. generator. Generator not only provides instantaneous power output but also keep power outage out of bound. Similarly, in numerous remote locations where grid infrastructure is inadequate and frequent power outage happens in that case generators are extensively used. The offshore and onshore drilling operations are mainly located in secluded areas where electric power is not available. However, it is necessary for oil companies to increase the exploration and production of hydrocarbon thus they extensively use generators for their operations. Generators are the only option available in isolated places where there is no accessibility of grid. In addition to this the mining industry which mainly depend on generators. The high power-consuming equipment and lack of grid infrastructure have intensively increased the demand for generators in mining. Therefore, it has to be noted that the global generators sales market has positive growth in the forthcoming years as there are many business sectors where generators are necessary.
