Portable Generator Market in Americas 2015-2019

About portable generators

Generators are backup devices designed to provide temporary AC power by using the supplied fuel, which can be either diesel, gas, or gasoline. Generators, depending on their portability, are classified into two: portable and stationary.

Portable generators are the best solutions to provide AC power for standby non-hardwired applications. Low-end models support only a few basic home appliances. However, there are high-end portable generators that can provide backup AC power to an entire house. Apart from residential use, portable generators are widely used in commercial buildings as well as industrial and infrastructure sites. In short, they can be utilized in all places where grid is unavailable. The major advantages of portable generators over a standby generator are the following: low priced and do not require special installation.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the portable generator market in the Americas to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% over the period 2014-2019.
