gas generator market


 The global gas generator market is expected to witness a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period (2021–2027). As the market is anticipated to witness an uptick owing to the demand for generators and power generation systems being fueled by the rapidly increasing manufacturing sector. For instance, In January 2022, ClusterPower, a Romanian cloud service provided three MTU combined and customized cooling, heat, and power plant (CCHP) trigeneration units to Rolls-Royce and its distribution partner Knopf & Wallisch (K&W). Owing to the factors of an eco-friendly, and carbon-free environment and the rapid development across residential, commercial, and industrial segments, are propelling the growth of the gas generator market globally.

In addition, major players such as Caterpillar Inc., Cummins Inc., Kohler Co., Aggreko, Generac Holdings Inc, General Electric, PRAMAC, Powerlink, Himoinsa, Mahindra Powerol. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to develop the gas generator market.

The gas generator is a device that uses a rocket propellant for generating a large quantity of gas. It is mainly used in the utilization of chemical energy for creating electrical power. There are two types of generators: AC (alternating current) generators and DC (direct current) generators. The way of generating electricity is the same in both types but differs in the application where the process in which loads receive electric power is different. While storing any impractical or undesirable pressurized gas, the gas generator may create some chemical reaction or form a liquid or solid source. It plays a significant role in the reduction of GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions as it burns cleaner than other forms of conventional fuels.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the market size of the gas generator. Several countries enforced nationwide lockdowns as part of measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The growth of the gas generator market was also affected due to the shutdown of manufacturing activities and the decline in demand for commercial services in 2020. In addition, volatility in the prices of natural gas during the pandemic further aggravated the impact on the market of gas generators.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst power, below 75 kVA category to hold a significant share in the market”

Based on power, the market is fragmented into below 75 kVA, 75-375 kVA, 375-750 kVA, and above 750 kVA. During the forecast period, below 75kVA is likely to dominate the global gas generator market. As below 75kVA is supported by various industries such as telecom, retail, small restaurants, and many residential and commercial buildings as they are easily portable and affordable.


“Amongst application, standby to hold a significant share in the market”

Based on application, the market is fragmented into standby, peak shaving, and prime/continuous. The standby segment is expected to cater to extensive demand in the gas generator market during the forecast period. Due to the rising government electrification programs and vigorous development of data centers. In addition, the growing telecommunication sector is accompanied by an enhanced deployment of gas generator sets which provide continuous power requirements in the telecom infrastructure.

For instance, in March 2022, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger, Ltd (MHIET) Launches MGS-R Series, New Standby Generator Set which is developed for Large Commercial Facilities such as Data Centers, the New Series will Support the Digital Economy’s Growing Needs.

“Amongst end-user, industrial is accounted for a significant market share in 2020”

Based on end-user, the market is fragmented into residential, commercial, and industrial. The industrial segment is likely to dominate the global gas generator market during the forecast period (2020-2027F). It is mainly owing to the rising power outages across the globe that are escalating the demand for gas generators in various end-user industries that are positively influencing the market outlook. In addition, the rising demand for urbanization & extensive demand for clean fuel resources is going to offer profitable growth to the industrial segment for generating electricity.

APAC to witness significant growth during the forecast period”

The APAC is becoming one of the leading and emerging regions because of the exponential demand for electricity and frequent power outage. China, the part of APAC is focusing on the growth of gas by enlarging its E&P activities. On the other hand, India is extensively investing in the energy & power sector to ease access to electricity for the massive economic growth which is anticipated in providing a positive motive to the gas generator industry.  Development of retails, complexes, industries, and many others is leading to the high production rate of power supply which is putting an impact on the growth of gas generators since the consumption on fields are higher for running different activities.  In addition, the faster expansion of the telecom sector has put a huge impact on the power supply. Expanding the gas supply & distribution infrastructures taking place across the globe has led to the usage of generators which in return is increasing its demand in the market.
