Press Release   •   Aug 22, 2017 03:51 EDT

Generator Sales to Remain Strong as Demand for Energy Snowballs

The insatiable demand for electricity has been fueled by the increasing population and industrialization globally. However, there is still a supply gap as electricity generation by utilities is not sufficient to meet the global demand for power. This has created a favorable space for generator sets to fill in the gap between power generation and consumption. Generator sets have thus been seen as ideal solutions to provide electricity in individual homes and other facilities. Their advantages in peak shaving power and prime continuous power have manifested in the form of key drivers for the market.

Developed countries such as the U.S., U.K., and Germany, have started adopting off-grid power systems to reduce dependence on utility-scale electricity. This has boosted the sales of generators sets in these regions. At a CAGR of 6.39%, the generator market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

The Middle East & Africa generator market is currently witnessing strong generator sales in countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, South Africa, Kenya, Iran, Nigeria, and Qatar. Remote areas that still remain cut off from regular power supply carry a high economic potential for companies in the generator market.
