Generators are backup devices designed to provide temporary AC or DC power. They can be used as a source of backup or emergency power for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. A typical generator is powered via a fuel engine. Based on portability, generator can be segmented into portable and standby. 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, that is, where grid is unavailable.
Technavio's analysts forecast the portable generator market in Europe to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Portable Generator Market in Europe 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Portable Generator Market in Europe: Briggs & Stratton, Cummins, Generac Holdings, Honda Motor and Kohler
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Honeywell International, Perkins and Pramac
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The emission regulations have decreased the use of old diesel-based generators in some parts of Europe. Although, regulated regions are likely to provide opportunities to diesel generator vendors in the near term, there exists a strong need to focus on products complying with the norms. Hence, the market for portable gas generators with a variety of environmentally suitable fuels is expected to grow considerably in the near future.”
According to the report, portable generators offer more benefits compared to large stationary generators. These generators are quieter and more user friendly, and they require low initial investment and maintenance costs. End-users do not require technical knowledge to operate these generators. They simply need to follow the instructions for adding fuel and oil to operate the machine. Also, these generators are safe and are fitted with circuit breaker protection to prevent overloads. Most of the portable generator models are coming up with inverter technology used for generating clean energy. The energy generated by these devices is safe for operating electrical equipment used in construction projects.
Further, the report states that a large number of industries and start-ups in Europe are focusing on the development of alternative sources of energy, which is hindering the demand for portable generator market.
