U.S. Generator Sales Market to Exhibit 5.7% CAGR from 2023 to 2030; Kohler-SDMO Expands Industrial Canopy Range with Anti-Corrosion M139 Generator Canopy

July 31, 2023 | Energy & Power

The U.S. generator sales market size was valued at USD 5.71 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 6.10 billion in 2023 to USD 8.96 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. Fortune Business Insights™ presents this information in its report titled “U.S. Generator Sales Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Power Rating (Below 75 kVA, 75-375 kVA, 375-750 kVA, Above 750 kVA), By Fuel Type (Diesel, Gas, Others), By Application (Continuous Load, Peak Load, Standby Load), By End-User (Mining, Oil & Gas, Construction, Residential, Marine, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals, Commercial, Telecom, Others) and Forecast, 2023 – 2030”.

The growing demand for generators, driven by increased utilization and technological advancements, is fueled by factors such as the push for sustainable development and the goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions. This has led to an increase in the adoption of hybrid and bi-fuel generators, creating significant opportunities in the market.
The power industry is experiencing an exponential increase in demand, leading to the construction of new power generation, transmission, and distribution stations. This growth is driven by the need to meet the rising power requirements of various sectors.

COVID-19 Pandemic Disrupted Generator Market, Impacted Imports and Operations

The global outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, had a profound negative impact on various industries, including generator sales. Disruptions in shipment channels have significantly hindered the import of generators to key countries such as the U.S., China, and India. These countries, renowned for their substantial manufacturing and deployment of diesel generators, experienced regional and national lockdowns, resulting in the suspension of industrial operations. Consequently, the import of generators to the U.S. has been severely affected, leading to repercussions across the entire market within the country.

Cummins Inc. Launched Centum Series Generators, Revolutionizing Power Solutions

Cummins Inc. unveiled the Centum Series generators, marking the introduction of a new generation of generator sets in July 2022. These generators are designed to meet the specific power needs of customers, featuring highly efficient engines that occupy a compact space. The Centum Series allows end-users to specify their desired power requirements, providing a high-density and high-performance power supply solution in a smaller footprint. This innovative product offering is expected to drive U.S. generator sales market growth.

Growing Demand for Electricity Drives Expansion in the Power Industry

The power industry is experiencing significant growth due to the rising demand for electricity and the construction of new power generation, transmission, and distribution facilities to meet these needs. Various sectors such as construction, manufacturing, mining, and commercial industries are increasing their investments to ensure an adequate power supply during peak hours. For example, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, there was a substantial increase in spending on public construction in March 2021, particularly in residential construction, while spending on other types of construction decreased significantly.

However, the U.S. generator sales market share for traditional generators may face challenges due to government targets and initiatives aimed at promoting the adoption of green energy technologies.
