Generator Sets Market: Introduction

Generator sets are the combination of fuel-driven engine with an alternator to generate electricity. The generator sets usually driven by diesel, gasoline or natural gases. Generator sets generally used in places that do not have a power grid connection or for the emergency power-supply if the grid fails.

Generator sets also used for complex applications such as grid support, peak-lopping, and export of the electricity to the power grid. Marine ships also use the generator sets to provide secondary power for winches, lights, fans among others. In addition to that, generator sets are also used for the propulsion of the ships. The generator sets are selected based on the electrical load they are projected to supply.

Generator Sets Market: Dynamics

Generator sets market is extensively driven by the increasing need for the self-generating power to avoid the continuing power shortages. Insufficient power supply, unreliable grid infrastructure coupled with rising demand for the constant power is projected to drive the demand for generator sets over the forecast period.

In developing countries, governments are significantly investing in the development of infrastructure in the public sector such as hospitals, schools, etc. which is likely to drive the demand for the generator sets market. Increasing dependence on digitization along with the stable increase in the data centre is likely to positively influence demand for the generator sets in the upcoming year.

Many manufacturers are also offering dual-fuel generator sets, which can be operated on diesel, crude oil, and HFO gas, which will further boost the demand for generator sets.

The generator sets are being progressively installed in various businesses such as oil & gas, construction, mining among others, where electric grid access is limited. Increasing use of the generators sets for the emergency standby in the utility grids such as hospitals, waste water plants, etc. will further boost the demand for generator sets. The rising trend towards renting generator sets or on a contract basis is anticipated to restraint the generator sets market.
