Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -10.8% in 2020 as compared to 2019.
The remarkable development in the industrial sector worldwide has led to the growth of energy requirements for long hours and remote locations. Revolution in various fields, such as oil & gas, mining, automobile, pharmaceutical, telecommunication, and manufacturing, has led to rapid industrialization and urbanization, making the stationary and portable generator industry crucial for development.
Blockades in Industry Operations Have Harmed Stationary Generator Market Growth amid COVID-19
The global health crisis caused by the sudden spread of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic had a damaging impact on the stationary generator industry. Industries suffered significant losses in operational time due to the imposition of strict rules, such as nationwide lockdowns, to limit the spread of the COVID-19. Accordingly, the outbreak of the virus has altered the demand for stationary generator. As the market is majorly dependent on industries, the biggest downfall faced by the global industrial landscape in a long time has also impacted the investment in the market.
The stoppage of all industries significantly affected the demand for their constant power supply, leading to a crash in the market. According to a report by United Nations Conference on Trade & Development, the pandemic is responsible for the death of over 1 million people and the contraction of the global economy by over 4.3%.
Exponential Infrastructure Development to Provide Stimulus to Stationary Genset Market
In road, rail, and airport infrastructure, tremendous investments by emerging and developed countries are set to boost the demand for stationary generator sets. According to India Brand Equity Foundation, in 2021, India constructed over 13,298 km of highway. This portrayed a whopping 17% growth rate from 2016 to 2021. Moreover, growing trade among countries allows investors to invest in expanding the business, which is likely to increase its demand from the construction sector. Consequently, the exponential construction activities for building commercial spaces will likely bode well for the market. According to an article published in October 2021 by Financial Express, mall developers are anticipated to develop over 4.5 million square feet of mall space in India. Furthermore, massive population growth and growth in urbanization are augmenting the development of the market.
Rising Exploration Activities to Meet Growing Demand for Fossil Fuels is a Vital Trend
Conventional fuel is vital in varied industry verticals such as transportation, manufacturing, chemicals, power generation, and others. In addition to population growth, sizeable growth in industries is set to offer lucrative market opportunities. Further, colossal mining activities worldwide to meet the growing requisition for minerals and metals required in pharmaceuticals, automotive, space and aviation, chemicals, and others are projected to leverage the demand for stationary generators. In July 2021, it was reported that India planned on investing around USD 2-3 billion in Russian offshore upstream assets. In 2020, Russia announced plans to enhance its offshore oil and gas exploration and production in the Arctic Circle.
Inadequate Power Infrastructure Set to Boost Stationary Genset Market
Electricity is an integral part of daily life; however, millions of people worldwide live in the dark due to inadequate grid infrastructure. Consistent population growth and expansion of urban areas are straining the available grid infrastructure. In 2022, Ghana Grid Company Limited announced its aim to acquire over USD 1 billion investments for the upgradation of grid infrastructure in the country. The current infrastructure is obsolete and is a major cause of power outages. Subsequently, stationary gensets are increasingly used to access an uninterrupted power supply and avoid frequent power outages. Following this trend, the stationary genset market is expected to see progressive growth in the forthcoming years.
Inflation of Electricity Demand to Bolster Stationary Genset Market Growth
Due to technological advancements, the global economy has been witnessing sizeable growth in the last couple of decades. Innovative technologies are providing ample opportunities in different industry verticals. Revolutionary technologies such as the internet and information & communication technology have rejuvenated business models worldwide. Hence, the rising exchange of consumer goods and businesses has led to significant growth in infrastructure, transportation, commercial, and industrial sectors. These factors are increasing the electricity demand. The inadequate and unreliable electricity supply from power grids in many parts of the world will generate demand for stationary generator for reliable power supply. According to a 2022 article published by International Energy Agency, the electricity demand surged globally in 2021. However, a supply-demand gap for electricity led to greater reliance on external solutions such as stationary gensets.
Growing Investment in Utility Sector and Rising Adoption of Clean Energy Technology to Restrain Stationary Genset Market
Increasing investments in the utility sector to provide reliable and uninterrupted power supply is anticipated to impede the market size. International and local governments are working to enhance the grid infrastructure and satisfy the growing electricity demand. In January 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy announced the launch of the ‘Building a Better Grid’ initiative to enhance and modernize the grid infrastructure in the country. Moreover, growing concerns over rising greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) provide impetus to renewable energy technology. This factor will limit the market scope for the expansion of stationary gensets.
