Increased End-user Awareness and Grid Issues Lead to Market Growth

Executive Summary

•Frost & Sullivan valued the North American generator set market at $x billion in 2013 and estimated to reach $x billion in 2018, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x % during the 2013–2018 period.
•In 2013, the up to x kW and greater than x MW power ranges accounted for the majority of revenue at a combined x %. Frost & Sullivan expects that between 2013 and 2018, the greater than 1MW range will be the fastest-growing segment for units sold at a CAGR of x %.
•Factors including increased power demand, unreliable grid infrastructure, and more severe and unpredictable power outages are likely to drive the demand for generator sets during the forecast period.
•With the active involvement of the EPA in enforcing regulations, the demand for natural gas gensets is expected to increase consistently in the North American region. However, continuous investments in infrastructure-related projects are likely to drive the demand for diesel generator sets during the forecast period
•Despite the economic slowdown and sluggish commercial and construction market, the overall outlook for generator sets is still positive.
•The degree of competitiveness is increasing as the market participants are trying to get a stronger foothold in the market.

CEO’s Perspective

Natural gas generators are gaining momentum in the region, with residential end users as the main adopters.
Power demand growth in commercial and industrial activities will provide steady year-over-year growth until 2018.
A move from providing individual products to complete power solutions in large generators will present a competitive edge.
Increased emphasis on energy-efficient equipment will continue throughout the forecast period.
Unreliable electrical grid acts as a major driver for the adoption of generator sets as backup power.
