Large Generator Market Drivers and Opportunities

Rise in demand for Power Generation Across the Developing Region

Declining electricity consumption in advanced economies slowed the growth of global electricity demand in 2023. Global electricity demand grew by 2.2% in 2023, as compared to 2.4% growth registered in 2022. While developing countries, including China, India, and other countries in Southeast Asia, experienced significant growth in electricity demand in 2023, advanced economies experienced significant declines due to a weak macroeconomic environment and high inflation, which led to a decline in manufacturing and industrial output. Global electricity demand is expected to increase faster over the next three years, growing by an average of 3.4% per year through 2026. The increases will be driven by an improving economic outlook, which will contribute to faster growth in electricity demand in both developed and emerging markets. Hence, the rise in demand for power generation in the developing region is projected to fuel market growth in the coming years.

Adoption of Diesel Generators in Backup Power and Peak Shaving Applications

Connecting rural communities to national power grids in developing countries is not economically viable. Network infrastructure in developing countries could be improved at best. Diesel generators offer an ideal solution. They can be used individually or as part of a combined power system in conjunction with wind and solar energy. For instance, agriculture generally makes up large parts of developing countries. India's rural irrigation network is estimated to be powered by around 4 million small diesel generators. Diesel generators are low-tech, long-lasting, portable energy sources and provide important energy solutions in developing countries. As developing countries struggle with increasing infrastructure demands, demand for electricity continues to outstrip supply. This leads to peak power deficits, blackouts, and brownouts.

Diesel generators can ensure the security of the power supply in the case of a grid failure. Compared to alternatives such as solar and wind energy, diesel generators represent the most cost-effective solution in terms of initial investment costs for developing countries. Due to the limited budgets of developing countries, diesel generators remain the best solution for primary and emergency power generation. As developing countries continue to industrialize and populations continue to grow, energy demand will increase. Diesel generators represent an important source of energy in developing countries. This trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Hence, the adoption of diesel generators in backup power and peak shaving applications is projected to boost the market growth from 2023 to 2031.
