Global portable generators market size is set to witness an appreciable growth on account of rising inadequacy of power supply, prolonged electrical outages in addition to ongoing infrastructural expansion. Increasingly frequent and severe weather-related blackouts coupled with growing reliance on backup power solutions to sustain day-to-day operations will boost the deployment of these units.

Rising demand for electricity coupled with rapid population growth, most notably across developing economies will boost the market growth. For instance, the sub-Saharan countries, where electrical outages last for majority of hours will sustain a robust deployment of these mobile units. According to the 2017 IEA Energy Outlook, gradual improvement in electrification rates across the region will be offset by rapid population growth resulting into over 600 million people without electricity access in 2030.

Shifting consumer preferences toward mobile units with easier portability  and smaller surface footprint will drive the 3.5-5 kVA portable generators market size. The ability of these generators to effectually cater to consumer power requirements, majorly across residential facilities will favor their incursion in the industry. Compactness, light weight and operational suitability are the prominent features encouraging the penetration of these units.  

Infrastructure development along with ongoing construction boom, primarily across emerging economies will boost the 8-15 kVA portable generators industry growth. The construction sector is a major end-user of these generators to meet power requirements for the uninterrupted operation of jobsite tools and equipment. These portable gensets are essential for supplying power to construction sites where utility grid supply is inaccessible and are vital in restoring services followed by weather disruptions.

Global Portable Generators Market , By End Use

Residential portable gensets market is predicted to expand over 5% by 2025. The application is majorly driven by the prevalent installation of gensets across households to cater to the emergency power supply in an event of a blackout or grid failure. Increased customer awareness, rising power failures, and amplifying demand load on the main grid are some of the instrumental factors supporting the industry growth.

Commercial portable gensets market size is anticipated to grow over 4% by 2025. The industry growth across the sector is majorly driven by the increasing participation in outdoor recreational activities favored by increasing consumer disposable income. These gensets are small, lightweight units primarily deployed for outdoor recreational applications including backyard parties, sudden blackouts, camping trips and RV installations, etc.
