Global Diesel Generator market 2016-2020

About Diesel Generator

Generators convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The source of mechanical energy varies from an internal combustion engine or a hand crank to a compressed air and reciprocating steam engine. An internal combustion engine uses either diesel, gasoline, propane gas, or natural gas to produce mechanical energy, which is transformed into electrical energy with the help of a generator assembly. Generators are designed to provide temporary AC or DC power. They serve as a source of backup or emergency power for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. A fuel engine powers a typical generator.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global diesel generator market to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the period 2016-2020.
