Genset Market

“A genset is basically a power generating machine that consists of an engine and an electric generator”. These portable equipment are majorly used in developing regions that are not connected to a power grid or in places, wherein, power outages happen frequently. They are also extensively used in places where power outages or fluctuations can cause severe consequences such as mines. “Their power producing capabilities make them highly sought after for supplying power to the data centers”, which are being developed rapidly because of the mushrooming requirement of infrastructure that can support data collation, analysis, and access, across the world.

Besides the increasing penetration of the internet and the rising digitization, the increasing adoption of autonomous vehicles, internet of things (IoT), intelligent personal assistants, accounting services, digital currencies, and various other advanced technologies is also boosting the demand for data centers all over the world, which is, in turn, boosting the sales of generators. This is because of the need for continuous power for running the critical systems and appliances of data centers such as heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, backup controls, security machines, and servers.

Apart from the aforementioned reasons, the other major factor responsible for the soaring sales of gensets is the lower production of power and grid uncertainties in several countries around the world. Due to these factors, the global genset market will grow, in valuation, from $17,592.6 million to $22,777.8 million from 2019 to 2024, as per the prediction of P&S Intelligence, a market research firm based in India. Furthermore, “the market will advance at a CAGR of 5.2% between 2020 and 2024”.

Gas, diesel, and gasoline are the main types of fuel used in gensets. Out of these, “the utilization of the diesel-powered gensets will be the highest in the coming years”. This is credited to the easily availability of diesel as compared to gasoline and gas. Moreover, the poor supply levels of natural gas severely affect the sales of the gas-powered gensets, even though the low-power gas gensets are much cheaper than the diesel ones.

“Geographically, the Middle East and Africa (MEA) genset market is predicted to exhibit rapid advancement in the forthcoming years”. This is primarily attributed to the poor power grid connectivity in several MEA nations. Additionally, the increasing infrastructural development projects and industrialization in various MEA countries such as Turkey, the U.A.E., and Saudi Arabia will massively increase the power requirements, which will, in turn, boost the sales of gensets in these countries in the future years.

Therefore, it can be said with surety that the sales of gensets will surge across the world in the upcoming years, mainly because of the rising demand for power, on account of the rapid development of data centers and increasing urbanization, industrialization, and construction activities in several countries around the world.
