Growing demand for portable generators across the construction sector is projected to have a positive impact on the market outlook. Over the last decade, the number of infrastructural investments and activities has risen at an exponential rate on account of rapid urbanization and industrialization. Additionally, the advent of mobile electric generators to curb the environmental impact of conventionally deployed diesel gensets will proliferate portable generators industry growth.

A surge in the product adoption of business can be attributed to the rise in weather-related disasters. The high frequency and severity of natural calamities and incidents such as blackouts are compelling users to replace conventional power sources with portable gensets. Furthermore, the growing risk awareness and implementation of measures to address natural calamities will spur the demand for portable power units by 2032.

High manufacturing costs may impede product demand

Increasing manufacturing costs associated with portable generators and the growing safety concerns could restrain portable generators market revenues. Additionally, various technical and functional limitations such as the ability to power only a small number of devices, large volumes of carbon monoxide production, noisy gasoline engines, and consumption of gasoline are hampering the demand for these generators. This makes it unsuitable in case of sudden power outages, necessitating operator intervention and limiting product usage to some extent. The inverter portable generators industry is poised surpass USD 7.1 billion by 2032.
