Power Rental Market to Register 7.9% CAGR till 2028; Growing Intensity of Mining Operations in Emerging Economies to Boost the Market

June 14, 2021 | Energy & Power

The global power rental market size is projected to reach USD 16.70 billion by 2028 owing to the increasing adoption of gas generators worldwide, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Power Rental Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Power Rating (Below 75 kVA, 75-375 kVA, 375-750 kVA and Above 750 kVA), By Fuel Type (Diesel, Gas, and Others), By Application (Continuous Load, Standby Load, and Peak Load), By End-user (Mining, Construction, Utility, Events, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, and Others) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028”. According to the report, the estimated value of the global market was USD 8.85 billion in 2020 and the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2021 to 2028.

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has impeded the power rental market growth as the unprecedented downturn in the global economy has stymied industrial operations and businesses. With the imposition of strict lockdowns, social distancing measures, and travel bans to contain the coronavirus, the demand for power has tanked globally. As a result, this market’s growth dipped by -12.9% in 2020 and it reached a value of USD 9.78 billion in 2021.

Heightening Power Consumption Worldwide to Stoke Market Growth

Growing populations and speedy economic development, particularly in Asia and Africa, are the two main factors underpinning the soaring demand for power and electricity worldwide. According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), between 2018 and 2050, total world energy consumption will grow by 50%, led by non-OECD (the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries. Furthermore, the International Energy Agency (IEA) revealed that gross electricity generation globally was 3.9% higher in 2018 than in 2017. Power rental solutions will play an instrumental role in meeting the surging demand for electricity worldwide as power on hire is a much cheaper and efficient alternative to purchasing power equipment. Furthermore, as the world gets increasingly digitized, the demand for power and energy will spiral at an even more accelerated pace over the next decade, creating a widespread need for robust standby power solutions.

Diversification of Operations across Geographies to Feed Key Players’ Competitive Fervor
