Increasing grid failure owing to extreme weather conditions will positively impact the industry landscape. Additionally, surging installation of backup supply systems and strengthening of consumer inclination & awareness toward affordable & reliable backup power solutions will stimulate the market growth.

Rising demand for high power from data centers and off-grid locations

< 50 kVA diesel genset market is estimated to attain 5% growth rate till 2027, credited to extended usage across the residential, small commercial and industrial applications. Growing frequency of electric outage on account of aging grid infrastructure and intensifying natural disasters is set to boost the business scenario. Moreover, increasing demand for standby power from single and multi-family end user section will continue to entail the deployment of these units. Furthermore, escalated energy usage driven by ongoing digitalization and rapid urbanization will increase the usage of these units.

The > 750 kVA rating segment is poised to witness substantial gains through 2027. This growth is attributed to the surging demand from the healthcare sector and data centers. Rising demand from data centers because of the increased urgency to supply continuous power for residential usage will favor the infiltration of these units across the business landscape. In addition, elevating costs of data centers outages and downtimes have imparted a driving force for the wide-scale commercialization and product adoption.

Ongoing digitalization and rapid urbanization will escalate the electricity demand

Residential diesel genset market is anticipated to showcase a significant growth as a consequence of the unit’s cost effectiveness, high reliability and ability to offer continuous power supply. The application is primarily driven by the prevalent deployment of gensets across residential establishments to cater to the emergency power supply requirement in an event of grid failure or a blackout. These gensets also act as the source of a primary power supply where the grid supply is inaccessible. Increased customer awareness, rising power failures, and amplifying demand load on the main grid are some of the instrumental factors supporting the market expansion.

The commercial application is anticipated to register a nearly 7% gains between 2021 and 2027. Robust industrialization and booming construction activities comprising green field and brown field infrastructural projects will augment the diesel generator industry development. Increasing demand for automated technologies and digital products has resulted in the significant development of data centers and communication stations, which in turn will propel the market outlook. Additionally, growing public funding across the commercial sector with extensive ventures across IT businesses and retail is slated to strengthen the market demand.
