Global Portable Generator Market to Grow at 6.49% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Increasing Construction Activities

April 13, 2021

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Portable Generator Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global portable generator market size reached US$ 4.6 Billion in 2021. A portable generator is an engine-driven generator that provides alternating current (AC) for non-hardwired and standalone applications. It consists of various components, such as a fuel tank, alternator, starter, and internal combustion engine, which are mounted together in an electric generation unit. The portable generator can be moved from one place to another if required. It provides electricity for temporary purposes and in situations of emergency power outages. It is generally powered by gas or diesel and can directly power electrical appliances like freezers, televisions, and refrigerators.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Portable Generator Market Trends:

The global portable generator market is primarily driven by the expanding construction industry. Portable generators are used to operate power tools, including drills, drives, compressors, and air hammers. They are also employed in new construction projects to ensure an uninterrupted power supply due to the increasing population and the lack of dependable grid infrastructure worldwide. Besides this, frequent occurrences of power outages have led to the adoption of standby power sources that meet the requirements of reliable and regular electricity supply. Furthermore, the increasing environmental concerns have resulted in the introduction of portable generators that can be powered by biofuels and other sustainable energy sources. Market players are also introducing variants with improved flexibility, high cost-efficiency, easy installation process, and enhanced durability. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.49% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
