Portable Generator Market to Hit USD 5.87 Billion by 2026; Heightening Demand for Robust Grid Infrastructure Worldwide to Fuel the Market: Fortune Business Insights™


Pune, March 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global portable generator market size is projected to reach USD 5.87 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. Rising incidence of natural disasters across the globe will play a central role in augmenting the growth of this market, shares Fortune Business Insights in its new report, titled "Portable Generator Market Size, Share and Global Trend by Fuel (Diesel, Gas, and Others), Power Rating (Below 5kVA, 5-15kVA, 15-45kVA, 45-75kVA), By Application (Residential, Commercial, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2019 to 2026". Weather-related natural calamities such as hurricanes and floods have spiked in terms of frequency in last few decades. According the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), a staggering 315 natural disasters occurred in 2018, causing nearly 12,000 deaths globally. Bulk of the burden of these disasters was borne by countries in Asia, with Indonesia accounting for half of the total deaths, the OCHA highlights. Furthermore, the world suffered an economic loss of approximately USD 131.7 billion as a result of these calamities. One of leading factors aggravating the intensity of loss created by such tragedies is poor energy and power infrastructure. A study conducted by the European Commission found that restarting power generation in flood-hit regions can take up to 3 weeks. Portable generators, therefore, can prove to be critical during and after such events for rehabilitation and recovery purposes.

As per the portable generator market report, the value of this market stood at USD 3.88 billion in 2018. The report also comprehensively answers the following questions:

  • What are key factors driving the growth and development of this market?

Market Driver

Lack of Access to Stable Power Supply to Propel the Market

Deficient, poor, and interrupted power supply in developing and underdeveloped economies is one of the top portable generator market trends. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) revealed in its ‘The Energy Progress Report' that close to 840 million people across the globe are deprived of electricity. The report states that by 2030, 650 million people will still be living without electricity. The challenge looms large in case of remote areas in underdeveloped regions, such as sub-Saharan Africa where a whopping 573 million people live without electricity. In such a dreadful scenario, portable generators can prove extremely useful, not just in providing electricity to remote areas, but also to substantially enhance the quality of life of the underprivileged, which bodes well for the portable genset market growth.

Regional Analysis

Speedy Economic Development in China and India to Fuel the Market in Asia-Pacific

With a market size of USD 1.33 billion in 2018, Asia-Pacific is poised to dominate the portable generator market share during the forecast period. One of the main reasons for the region's leading position is the unprecedented economic rise of India and China. These countries are heavily investing in establishing strong and durable grid infrastructure to meet their energy demands.

Poor energy infrastructure in most African countries is creating several growth opportunities in the Middle East and Africa region for the market. Moreover, African countries are exhibiting promising economic growth, which is attracting MNCs into the region and upping the demand for portable generators in the continent.
