Global Power Rental Market to Reach US$ 35.5 Billion by 2032, Supported by the Advent of Environment-Friendly Solutions

December 09, 2019 | Heavy Industry

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Power Rental Market Report by Fuel Type (Diesel, Natural Gas, and Others), Equipment Type (Generator, Transformer, Load Bank, and Others), Power Rating (Up to 50 kW, 51 –500 kW, 501 –2,500 kW, Above 2,500 kW), Application (Peak Shaving, Standby Power, Base Load/Continuous Power), End Use Industry (Utilities, Oil & Gas, Events, Construction, Mining, Data Centers, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, the global power rental market reached a value of US$ 20.5 Billion in 2023. Power rental is a field of service that operates around the provision of temporary power equipment for commercial buildings, big infrastructure projects, heavy industrial construction, or mine development. This equipment can be used through various stages, from building construction and site development to pre-commissioning activities. Power rental service providers offer different safety devices that can perform effective and efficient fuel management procedures. Some of the power rental solutions include welding generators, cables, diesel generators, mobile lighting towers and distribution boards. As compared to purchased generators, rental power systems offer low installation costs, negligible maintenance, flexibility in required power rating and are readily available on short notice. Other than this, they are also beneficial in terms of better inventory control, reduced disposal and warehousing costs, decreased equipment obsolescence and higher cost control.

Global Power Rental Market Trends:

Over the past few years, end users in the industry have been gaining awareness about the numerous monetary benefits and functional advantages offered by rental power systems, which is the primary factor driving the market growth. Besides this, military and defense organizations across the globe have been undertaking initiatives to maintain homeland security with improved power back-up. This, coupled with the rising emission restrictions, has created growth opportunities for market players to expand their portfolio with environment-friendly solutions. Moreover, the inadequate power supply has become a hindrance to industrial development, thus enabling higher penetration of gensets, which is a combination of diesel and electrical generators. Owing to this, there has been a rise in the demand for power rental equipment. Also, escalating concerns regarding global warming have prompted service providers to promote and offer renewable power equipment to end users. For instance, the US-based automotive and energy company, Tesla, recently launched a solar rental program for residents of six states across the United States - New Mexico, Massachusetts, California, New Jersey, Connecticut and Arizona. Attributing to these factors, the market is projected to reach a value of US$ 35.5 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during 2024-2032.
