·3-min read

The "Diesel Generator Market by Type, Mobility, Cooling System and Application and End-use Industry: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global diesel generator market was valued at $20.8 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $37.1 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.8% from 2020 to 2027.

Diesel generator is a system that converts chemical energy into mechanical energy and heat. This mechanical energy or force is further converted into electrical energy. It possess properties such as quick startup time, easy availability of diesel generators across the globe, prolonged durability, fast ramp-up, and enhanced reliability. It can be used as standby, emergency, standalone, and peak shaving unit. However, diesel generators require timely maintenance to function appropriately.

Rapid increase in commercial & residential activities across the globe is a key factor driving the growth of the diesel generator market. In addition, low capital cost of diesel generator, power outages, fuel availability, and unstable power supply from electrical power stations significantly contribute toward the growth of the global market. However, an increase in developments in the renewable energy sector, stringent governmental regulations toward greenhouse gases emissions from diesel generators, and high maintenance & operational cost associated with diesel generators hamper the growth of the market, globally. Conversely, technological advancements in diesel generators along with increase in demand for energy from various end-use industries are expected to create potential growth opportunity for key player operating in this market.

The global diesel generators market is segmented into type, mobility, cooling system, application, end-use industry, and region. Depending on type, the market is categorized into small, medium, and high. On the basis of mobility, it is bifurcated into stationary and portable. As per cooling system, it is classified into air cooled and liquid cooled. The applications covered in the study include standby backup power and peak shaving. By end-use industry, the market is fragmented into residential, commercial, and industrial. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
