>750 kVA rating, in 2019, contributed to over 19% of the overall market share. Urgency to cater to COVID-19 patients across the globe is stimulating the need for continuous power backup in health centers. Moreover, rising costs of data center outages & downtimes have imparted a guiding force for the wide scale commercialization and product adoption.

Weather severity and unavailability of electricity in remote locations and off grid areas will lead to the deployment of 75-375 kVA commercial gensets. Ongoing R&D activities along with development pertaining to digitalization and monitoring control system will stimulate the commercial genset market value. Strengthening of consumer propensity and awareness toward reliable & affordable standby power solutions are largely instrumental for accelerating the commercial gensets deployment.

Longer life span and better performance when compared to available alternatives will drive the diesel commercial gensets market analysis

Diesel gensets, in 2019, accounted for over 60% of global market share. Government inclination towards adoption of cleaner fuel has led to the formulation of strict emission laws that may limit the commercial gensets installation. However, cost efficiency, increased life span, and reliable and flexible engine performance are some of the major features contributing towards the accelerating usage of these gensets.

Rising funding by international and local government toward the development of educational institutions and healthcare centers will propel the hybrid commercial genset market forecast. The Government of UK, in 2019, introduced a norm to reduce global emission by 45% by 2030 when compared to 2010 levels. Thus, implementation of strict norms along with rising emphasis on sustainability will drive the market scenario.

Frequent power interruption for confined livestock will drive the agriculture commercial gensets industry

Agriculture sector is anticipated to grow over 9% through 2026. The soaring power interruption is creating catastrophic situation for livestock in agricultural farms thereby, positively influencing the demand for off utility generators. Moreover, expansion of intensive high-volume confined production farms, most notably for poultry will drive the commercial gensets market demand in the forecast timeframe.

The world is currently facing health crisis and alarming increase of COVID-19 patients is resulting in surging demand for robust construction activities including the development of hospitals and healthcare establishments. These activities are driven by an elevation in construction spending thereby strengthening the commercial gensets market penetration.

Power utilities providing load shedding period due to accelerating electricity demand will fuel market share

Peak shaving application will grow as a result to increasing electricity usage following which the power utilities are striving to provide load shedding periods. These commercial gensets are deployed when there is a limitation on the amount of electric power that can be drawn from the grid. The units typically operate as the prime source of power for an extended time period. Growing acceptance towards work from home and development of data centers to supply continuous power will strengthen the commercial genset market statistics.

Standby commercial gensets accounted for over 50% of the global market share in 2019. Weather unpredictability leading to power cuts or outages coupled with rising consumer awareness regarding backup solutions will drive the commercial genset market growth. Moreover, presence of robust distribution channels and networks amplifying the ease of access to backup units will complement the product installation.
