Diesel Gensets Market Size

Diesel Gensets Market was valued at USD 33.4 billion in 2023 and is projected to expand at more than 7.4% CAGR from 2024 to 2032. Rapid digitalization across several industries will foster the industry growth.

Rising income and urbanization have boosted the demand for commercial and residential buildings, propelling the global construction sector. However, insufficient power supply has led to the widespread deployment of diesel gensets systems as a backup or primary source of power. Moreover, massive government-supported plans across different economies for the development of smart cities and infrastructural upgrade is set to boost the market revenue during the forecast period. For instance, the Indian government established Smart City Mission in 2015 with the goal of constructing 100 Smart Cities by the end of 2023.

High initial and maintenance costs may hinder industry expansion

Diesel gensets are one of the most popular backup power systems implemented globally although DG sets have significant running costs, as well as complex and expensive maintenance. Since diesel is an imported fuel that is vulnerable to fluctuating fuel prices in numerous nations, industry progression is impeded by the volatility in its costs. To get around this limitation, manufacturers are creating more fuel-efficient and reasonably priced diesel gensets that can perform better while using less fuel.

Diesel Gensets Market Analysis

Diesel generator market from the ≤ 50 kVA power rating segment is predicted to observe nearly 7% growth rate through 2032. The ongoing work-from-home trend has stimulated the demand for economical, small, and uninterrupted power supply options, resulting in the growing adoption of lower-capacity diesel gensets for residential uses. According to the 2021 American Community Survey 1-year estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans primarily working from home quadrupled between 2019 and 2021, from 5.7% (approximately 9 million) to 17.9% (27.6 million).

Diesel gensets market value from the peak shaving application segment is slated to surpass USD 11 billion by 2032. The growing inclination of organizations towards energy-saving strategies to lower costs by reducing energy usage is anticipated to increase the adoption of diesel gensets for peak shaving applications. Furthermore, several consulting organizations are providing strategic support and plans for convenient employment of peak shaving methods, which is speculated to impel segment growth.

Residential segment held around 25% of the revenue share in 2022. The business landscape is expected to benefit from the widespread installation of diesel gensets at household units to supply emergency power during blackouts. Additionally, most residential units in developing nations, including China and India, are switching to diesel gensets on account of frequent power shortages that have slowed down business operations and left several housing units without electricity.
