Low Capacity Portable Generator Market in the US 2015-2019

About Low-capacity Portable Generators

Generators are backup devices designed to provide temporary AC power by using supplied fuel, which can be either diesel or gas. Depending on the portability, generators are categorized into two:

  • Portable
  • Stationary
Portable generators are used to provide AC power for standby non-hardwired applications. There are two types of portable generators: low-capacity and high-capacity. This report focusses on low-capacity portable generators, with power output rated below 3 kW. Low-capacity portable generators are mainly used to provide backup AC power to basic home appliances. Whereas, high-capacity portable generators are used to provide backup AC power to an entire home. Apart from residential use, low-capacity portable generators are widely used in commercial buildings as well as industrial and infrastructure sites for small applications. These generators can be used in all places, where the grid is not available. The major advantages of portable generators over stationary generators are the following:
  • Low priced
  • Do not require special installation
Technavio’s analysts forecast the low-capacity portable generator market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 6.10% over the period 2014-2019.
