Market Segmentation



Global Genset Market


Global Genset Market is expected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period. Utilities around the world have started to use genset to improve their operations and efficiency. The growing demand for genset is attributed to increasing industrialization, especially in developing countries such as China and India. Generators are becoming popular in commercial and industrial applications as they provide uninterrupted power supply which is an important aspect of any manufacturing facility for uninterrupted production activities. Moreover, factors such as extreme weather conditions, stringent environmental norms, and infrastructural developments are likely to drive the genset market. Asia-Pacific and North America are expected to witness a strong growth for gensets as there is abundant natural gas available in these regions.

Genset is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical power for various electrical operations. Genset consists of a motor and an alternator which are coupled and inserted in a base with other elements. The other major components of genset include batteries, fuel tank, control panel, and automatic transfer switch. Genset is a cost-effective device with high efficiency and reliability in operation. Gensets are majorly used as backup device to deal with any power failure situation within the industry, grid, and construction site. There are various advantages of a genset which makes it a preferred choice in variety of applications. These advantages include automatic load management system, automatic operation can be initiated locally or remotely using SCADA system, utility paralleling switchgear allowing automatic or manual paralleling, and voltage support in utility mode.
