Gas Genset Market Scenario


Gas genset market is expected to grow at ~5.00 % CAGR during the forecast period.  


Gas genset consists of a gas engine and generator. The engine converts the chemical energy of a fuel to mechanical energy and this mechanical energy is used to spin the alternator rotor, thereby converting the mechanical energy to electrical energy. The alternator consists of two parts i.e. a rotor and stator. The various fuel includes natural gas, biogas, and others. The other components of genset are fuel day tank, basecamp, cooling system, and an enclosure, if needed. Gensets provide energy mostly in geographical areas which are not connected to power grid and in areas with frequent power outages. So, gensets can be used either as a main source of energy or as a supplementary source of power.  The gas gensets are environment friendly and produces lower carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen emissions.


Rising carbon emissions, low operational cost, and more efficiency of gas genset compared to diesel genset are the factors expected to drive the global gas genset market. The annual carbon emissions remained stable from 2014 to 2016. But emissions grew by 1.6% in 2017. So, rising carbon emissions are expected to drive the gas genset market during the forecast period. The factors such as increasing electricity demand-supply gap and carbon emission reduction targets globally are expected to offer promising business opportunities to the global gas genset market. Both developed and developing countries are planning to reduce carbon emissions. For instance, carbon emission reduction targets of US are 25 to 31% reduction by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. Similarly, targets for Japan are 38% to 48%, for Canada are 26% to 41%, and 14 to 27% for Russia. The targets for developing countries include 19% to 34% for China, 30% to 37% for Mexico, 12% to 21% for Indonesia, 13% to 17% for India, 32% to 49% for Brazil, and 12% to 21% for Indonesia by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.


Global gas genset market has been segmented based on fuel, power rating, application, end-user, and region. Based on fuel, the market is classified into natural gas, biogas, and others. Natural gas segment is leading the market and has the largest market share, mainly due to availability of natural gas. The global gas genset market is further segmented based on power rating into up to 100 KVA, 100-350 KVA, 350-1000, and Above 1000 KVA.  Based on application, the global gas genset market is segmented into standby, peak shaving, and continuous.  Standby segment led the global gas genset market in 2017. The global gas genset market is segmented by end-user into industrial, residential, and commercial. Residential segment is estimated to register the highest growth rate in the global gas genset market during the forecast period.
