Market Overview

The Global Diesel Generator Market is valued at $17.39 Billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.50% over the forecast period of  2022-2029.

A diesel generator is a combination of a diesel motor with an electric generator (regularly an alternator) to produce electrical energy. A diesel compression-ignition engine is usually designed to run on diesel fuel, but some types are adapted for other liquid fuels or natural gas. It is utilized for producing power to give a persistent power supply during power interruptions. It is generally utilized as a reserve gadget during power outages or at spots with no connection to a power network. The expanding utilization of the diesel generators which can offer a hand extra in-home applications, in which it will deliver energy for sump pumps, lighting, specific required applications like climate control systems (ACs), refrigerators, and medical equipment is foreseen to make plentiful open doors in not so distant future.

The rise in demand for diesel generators in end-use sectors and occurrences of power grid failure and energy deficiency are the key drivers for the market growth globally. The electricity demand has risen exponentially, owing to rapid industrialization and increasing per capita electric power consumption.

The Threat of substitution from battery storage systems is the major restraint that hinders the growth of the market.

The Residential Diesel Generator market is valued at $3.01 Billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period to reach US$ XX Billion by 2026

The Standby Power Diesel Generator market segment held 66.17% of the global diesel generator market in 2018 and is expected to increase by XX% by 2026.

Europe, especially Western Europe, is a mature market for stationary diesel generators. China held 56.83% of the Asia-Pacific diesel generator market in 2018 and is expected to increase by XX% by 2026, followed by India at 14.53%.

Market Dynamics

The rise in demand for diesel generators in end-use sectors and occurrences of power grid failure and energy deficiency are the key drivers for the market growth globally. The growth prospects of the diesel generator market are thus highly influenced by the rise in product demand in associated sectors, ensuring new opportunities for business expansion and market growth to significant market players. For instance, a data center, part of the telecommunications industry, requires power to run IT infrastructural equipment such as network and communication equipment, desktops, servers, EAPBX, lighting, air conditioners, security systems, CCTV surveillance, fire alarms, UPS, and other critical devices. A critical requirement of data center buildings is the electricity supply. Thus in case of power outages, the standby diesel generators are an affordable as well as viable uninterrupted power backup option for the smooth functioning of the systems.

The growing rate of urbanization and shift in consumer spending patterns towards integrated consumer electronic goods have resulted in frequent power grid failure and shortage in supply of electricity for critical and emergency applications in hospitals, communication services, and emergency call centers. As such, it is vital to provide options for power backup and uninterrupted supply so that primary operations do not face challenges. The diesel generators are thus adopted on an extensive scale, owing to the long service life of the generators in comparison to other alternatives and low operational noise.

The threat of substitution from battery storage systems is the major restraint that hindering the growth of the market. The wide-scale adoption of battery storage systems, especially in remote areas which do not have access to power grids, acts as a barrier to the installation of diesel engines. The operation of diesel generators at low load and fractional capacity causes considerable damage to the equipment, shortening the intervals between maintenance work and increased expenses as a result. As such, the advent of low-cost alternatives and gradual up-gradation of substitutes severely hamper the growth prospects of the market. The battery systems, combined with solar or wind power, provide independence from rising diesel costs, handle demand during peak hours without diesel fuel consumption, reduce energy wastage through performance optimization, while also storing excess energy for later use.

Market Segmentation

Based on portability, the global market for diesel generators is segmented as portable and stationary. Based on power rating, the market is categorized into 0-100 kVA, 101-350 kVA, 350-1000 kVA, and Above 1000 kVA.

Depending on the end-user, the market is classified into residential, commercial, and infrastructure. The Residential Diesel Generator market is valued at $3.01 Billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period to reach US$ XX Billion by 2026. The rapid global rate of urbanization and increasing consumer spending power have shifted the market dynamics in favor of diesel generators, as awareness concerning enhanced performance while ensuring low operational costs are poised to ensure rising product demand during the forecast period.

The disruption in regular power supply and continued growth in sales of consumer electronic goods have ensured high installation of diesel generators, as development in infrastructural capabilities has made it mandatory to provide uninterrupted power supply to residential buildings. For instance, on June 04, 2018, Generac Holdings Inc., manufacturer of affordable home standby generators and power generation equipment, announced the acquisition of Selmec Equipos Industriales, S.A. de C.V., and its wholly-owned subsidiaries from Enesa Energia, S.A. de C.V. and Enesa, S.A. de C.V.

Based on operations, the market is divided into standby power, peak savings, and continuous power. The standby power diesel generator market is valued at $11.51 Billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period to reach US$ XX Billion by 2026. The Standby Power Diesel Generator market segment held 66.17% of the global diesel generator market in 2018 and is expected to increase by XX% by 2026. The standby power diesel generators are used for emergency power backup for a short duration of time, with no overload capabilities built into the generator units. The companies recognize the steady growth rate of the standby power diesel generator market and thus focus on new product launches as a means to increase company revenue through rising product sales revenue. For instance, on March 06, 2017, Caterpillar Inc. launched a new standby power node for the Cat® 3512C diesel generator set that offers industry-leading power density. Rated at 1,750 kW for 60 Hz standby applications, the Cat 3512C generator set offers reliable backup power from an optimally sized engine and a reduced overall footprint that delivers numerous benefits, including lower overall site preparation, transportation, installation, and maintenance costs, as well as reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions.
