< 50 kVA rated diesel gensets market share will witness over 5% CAGR through 2027 owing to extended usage across the residential, small commercial and industrial applications. Rising frequency of electric outage on account of aging grid infrastructure and intensifying natural disasters is set to drive the business scenario. Moreover, rising 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 expand the usage of these units.

The > 750 kVA diesel gensets industry is poised to gain an appreciable CAGR on account of the surging demand from the healthcare industry and data centers. Resurgent demand from the healthcare sector owing to the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 along with the rising demand from data centers on account of the increased urgency to supply continuous power for residential usage will favor the infiltration of these units across the business landscape.

Ongoing digitalization and rapid urbanization have resulted in escalated electricity demand which will positively impact the diesel gensets industry outlook

Residential diesel gensets market share is anticipated to witness a substantial 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 global market statistics.

Commercial diesel gensets market size is anticipated to witness a gain of over 7% from 2021 to 2027. Robust industrialization and booming construction activities comprising green field and brown field infrastructural projects will stimulate the industry development. Rising demand for automated technologies and digital products has resulted in substantial development of data centers and communication stations, which in turn will complement the industry outlook. In addition, growing public funding across the commercial sector with extensive ventures across IT businesses and retail is anticipated to strengthen the global market demand.

Infrastructure development and ongoing construction boom is emerging as one of the catalysts of diesel gensets industry growth across Asia Pacific. Increasing investments across construction sector coupled with development of new residential and commercial spaces will drive the genset demand across the region. The implementation of investment projects fiscally supported by foreign direct investments will play an instrumental role in the upliftment of the gensets industry.

High electricity costs, inadequate transmission and distribution networks, and thriving population count will drive the demand for diesel gensets across Africa. The current electricity demand outstrips the supply, offering a high potential for the deployment of gensets in the region. For instance, the electricity prices in parts of sub-Saharan Africa are among the highest in the world, which further limits the use of regional grid infrastructure. Following which, Nigeria accounts for almost three-quarters of the electricity supply provided by the backup generators, thereby promoting large-scale deployment of diesel gensets.

Key manufacturers are focusing on performing forward integration with an aim to sustain their existing market share

Prominent diesel generator set manufacturers are invariably seeking technical evolutions in response to the operational constraints including noise levels, pollutant emission levels, and the ability to operate in extreme environments and climatic conditions including humidity, sandstorms, and severe environment. Eminent players operating across the global diesel gensets market include Kohler, Generac, Yamaha, Cummins, Kirloskar Oil Engine limited, Powerica, Escorts Limited, Sterling Generator, YANMAR, Caterpillar, Trane technologies, Atlas Copco, Ashok Leyland, C&S Electric, JCB, Mahindra Powerol, Supernova Genset, Sudhir Power, Aggreko, MTU Onsite Energy and Siemens amongst others.
