Diesel Generators Market by Application (Standby Power, Peak Shaving, Prime or Continuous Power), by Power Rating (0-100 kVA, 100-350 kVA, 350-1000 kVA, above 1000 kVA), by End-User (Industrial, Commercial, Residential) & by Region - Global Forecast to 20

Diesel Generators Market by Application (Standby Power, Peak Shaving, Prime or Continuous Power), by Power Rating (0-100 kVA, 100-350 kVA, 350-1000 kVA, above 1000 kVA), by End-User (Industrial, Commercial, Residential) & by Region - Global Forecast to 2020

The diesel generators market is expected to reach a value of USD 16.96 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2015 to 2020. Energy demand from developing countries has rapidly grown over the past decade. Increasing power demand unmet by existing grid infrastructure has resulted in frequent power outages and blackout in the Asia-Pacific region. For industries and commercial sector, these power outages can be extremely costly. Diesel generators supply power to industries, commercial as well as residential sector during power cuts and prevents discontinuity in operations. Increasing need for continuous power supply and growing industrial and IT & Telecom industry are the major drivers of the market.

Standby application dominates the global market

The standby application held the largest market share in 2014, and is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the diesel generators market from 2015 to 2020. This growth is attributed to rising demand for uninterrupted power supply and increasing industrialization, especially in Asia-Pacific and other developing countries.

Asia Pacific to lead the global diesel generators market in terms of growth rate

The Asia-Pacific diesel generators market is projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Frequent power outages and increasing power demand unmet by existing grid are driving the diesel generators market in the region. Asia-Pacific is followed by the Middle East & Africa. Demand for diesel generators in the Middle East & Africa is mainly driven by oil & gas and mining industries in this region.
