The Russia gas generator market size was USD 126.20 million in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with gas generators witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, this market will exhibit a huge decline of 10.86% in 2020. The market is expected to grow from USD 136.22 million in 2021 to USD 196.09 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.3% in the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Generators are mainly used as backup power generators in several major sectors. Generators mostly run on natural gas, propane, or diesel generator. Gas generators provide a cleaner and eco-friendly option for consumers. In Russia, these are gaining more traction than other types as they are playing an important role in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Furthermore, the increasing acceptance of these generators from numerous major end-users for uninterrupted power supply is contributing immensely to the growth of the market.

Disruptions in Supply Chains amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Impact New Projects

The global health emergency created by the  COVID-19 pandemic has put a halt on manufacturing and trade operations across industries and geographies. Several countries across the globe have witnessed abrupt spikes in the number of affected people. Russia's economy is largely dependent on oil and natural gas exports. In 2020, Russian oil production declined for the first time since 2008, following a global deal to cut output and sluggish demand caused by the coronavirus. Recently, Gazprom, the Russian state-owned gas giant, admitted an almost 10% drop in its total gas production in 2020 because of the Covid-19 economic impact.

Moreover, the Russia gas generator market growth has been intermediately affected by the outcome of this global outbreak. These generators are broadly integrated across various sectors to provide extra power to lessen the chances of outages and maintain operations, reducing downtime. The difficulty in the initiation of new end-user projects due to the unavailability of necessary capital in heavy-duty operations, such as exploration and production of hydrocarbons, mining of new assets, construction activities, setup of new commercial infrastructures, among many others also provide negative influence on the Russia gas generator market.

Growing Adoption of Renewable Energy to Boost the Demand for Backup Power Facilities

Russia, a part of emerging economies, is one of the leading countries in electricity production and consumption in the world. But, more than half of electric power in the country is produced by thermal power plants. For the last few years, renewable energy has been gaining momentum in the Russian power generation mix.

The Russian government adopted the renewable energy-supporting mechanism in 2013, which targets the installation of 5.5 GW of wind, solar, and small hydropower plants by the year 2024. Under existing plans and policies, renewables would reach nearly 5% of the total final energy consumption by 2030. However,  solar energy can be produced only during the daytime, while wind energy can be produced only when the wind is blowing with a certain force. Therefore, backup power sources are needed for these resources. Thus, the growing adoption of renewable energy in Russia is expected to provide new opportunities to the gas generator market in the near future.


Rising Incidents of Power Outages to Fuel Market Growth

Russian electrification rate has improved over the last decade. However, power outage incidences have also increased. A power outage generally occurs due to transmission line failure and faults in the power generation station or substation equipment, among others. In the past, there have been instances of major blackouts which have left millions of people without any power. For example, in June 2018, Crimea was stunned by a massive power outage. Russia's emergency management service informed TASS that the accident at the Taman substation in the Krasnodar Territory is the primary reason for the power outage.

Such power outages reduce industrial output and also cause discomfort and loss of productivity in residential, commercial, governmental, and other facilities. These generators supply power to such facilities during power outages. Thus, the rising number of power outage instances is expected to fuel the market growth.

Growing Demand for Gas Generators from End-use Industries to Drive the Market

A gas generator has a broad application reach, which includes numerous major end-use industries. The uninterrupted power supply has high importance in industries such as mining, oil & gas, and manufacturing. In Russia, the mining industry is growing at a significant pace owing to the abundance of mineral resources. Presently, most of the gold mines in Russia are located in remote locations. For example, the Kupol gold mine is an underground mine situated in the Chukotka region of Far East Russia. In such areas, a generator is the only option for continuous power supply. Thus, the demand for these generators is continuously increasing from the mining sector.

Russia is one of the major oil & gas producers in Europe. Russia’s currency is mainly dependent on oil & gas exports. Despite the decrease in crude oil prices, there has been a rise in the demand for oil and gas around the world. This will increase the need for oil and gas production and exploration activities, in turn boosting the demand for generators from the oil and gas industry. Hence, the growing demand for these generators from end-use industries will drive the growth of the market.


Prevalence of Rental Market for Portable Generators to Hinder Market Growth

In Russia, portable generators are more often rented than bought owing to their advantages. Their lightweight and small size allow them to be handled and transported easily. Moreover, portable generators also require low amounts of fuel. In Russia, various sectors, such as event management and construction, are likely to opt for rental generators, as they need portability and easy handling of equipment. Also, for short periods, renting a generator is a more pocket-friendly option than buying the equipment. Hence, the prevalent practice of renting generators is a key factor that hinders the sale of such generators in Russia.
