Top Companies in the Portable Generator Market

The global portable generator market reached US$ 4.9 Billion in 2022. Portable generators are engine-driven backup devices that temporarily provide alternating current (AC) for non-hardwired and standalone applications. They are usually powered by gas or diesel and comprise internal combustion engines, fuel tanks, starters, alternators, and outlets. They can directly power electrical appliances, such as freezers, televisions, and refrigerators, or provide power backup to the whole house in case of emergency power outages. Since they are cost-effective and can be moved from one place to another if required, portable generators are gaining immense popularity across the globe.

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top companies in the portable generator industry are developing innovative product variants with an easy installation process, better flexibility, high cost-efficiency, fewer maintenance requirements, and enhanced durability. Due to the implementation of stringent government regulations, they are also introducing portable generators powered by biofuels and other sustainable energy sources to minimize greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In addition, the leading manufacturers are engaging in research and development (R&D) activities to launch novel portable generators with advanced features, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and emission detection systems. Besides this, several key players are focusing on expanding their geographical reach and production capacities through merger and acquisition (M&A) activities. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 7.2 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2023-2028.
