Over 1.4 billion households worldwide depend upon grid electricity to deliver safety, comfort and convenience through lighting, communications, refrigeration, air conditioning, and heating. Dependent upon the fail-safe and coordinated operation of power plants (generation), transmission and distribution systems, grid electricity supply is an assumed basic utility of the developed world and a proliferating feature of communities in the developing world. However, power outages and the loss of grid electricity or all-too-common an experience for consumers worldwide. These inevitable disruptions in electricity supply result from generation shortages, grid equipment failure, weather and other natural events. The global generator industry has developed as a result, able to provide consumers with back-up or standby electricity when grid supply is unavailable or inaccessible.

Residential Generator, 3rd Edition – U.S. and World Markets is the third installment of SBI Energy’s series of reports that have chronicled global markets for consumer generators (lower output generators for residential and commercial applications) since 2002. The highly-competitive, billion-dollar U.S. market for residential engine-generator sets (gensets) has ratcheted up in volume on successive consumer demand factors including consumer Y2K anxieties, major regional outage events (landed hurricanes, winter storms, etc.), and the boom and bust of the housing market. Grid instability and weather volatility strongly influence year-to-year consumer demand for potable and standby (stationary) gensets. Fluctuating domestic demand has led prominent U.S. consumer genset suppliers overseas to secondary residential markets in Latin America, Europe and Asia also in play for export-reliant Japanese and Chinese genset manufacturers.

SBI Energy’s latest report provides a review of global and regional residential generator markets in the past ten years, detailed assessments of the U.S. consumer genset industry and residential market, and up-to-date coverage of the latest industry events, including Hurricane Irene. Global market demand for residential generators is quantified and projections for growth in demand are provided. Historical and projected market volumes are provided globally, regionally and for key countries (United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, China and others). Key factors are expertly analyzed: long-term meteorological trends, grid integrity and outage events, competition from emerging alternative and renewable energy technologies, consumer purchasing and property investment trends, and genset purchaser and owner demographics in the United States.
