Global Portable Generator Market Size

The global portable generator market is projected to grow from USD 3.9 billion in 2022 to USD 5.8 billion by 2027 at a CAGR value of 6.7% from 2022 to 2027. The dependency on electricity in our life, whether it's business or in homes, is relatively high. Still, around 20% of the population experiences power cuts and outages every day and relies on typical generators. Handy and portable generators have replaced standard generators with technological advancement.

Portable generators are handy and are run by gas- or diesel-powered device which provides temporary electricity. Electrical appliances and devices can then be directly connected to the generator or through electricity panels.

The rising demand for portable generators has increased due to emergencies and uncontrolled events like tsunamis, floods, earthquakes, bushfires, storms, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, etc. In light of such events, portable generators are best in use. Also, many regions and areas worldwide are highly prone to calamities and events. The portable generators can be used there effectively, and this is forecasted for the growth of the market sector globally.

With emerging, new technologies and advancements in the market, better portable generators have come. There is a lot of demand for portable inverter generators. Inverter generators utilize advanced electronic circuits and designs along with components such as magnets, resistors, and others. Unlike standard generators, inverter generators provide pure AC power and primarily power current-sensitive appliances. Inverter generators are gaining traction in the small-scale household generator market.

Also, the growing demand for dual fuel has impacted portable generators. Dual fuel generators combine the benefits of both gas and diesel generators, enhancing backup power system dependability. Dual fuel portable generators typically run-on gas, but they may also run entirely on diesel in an emergency. Some generator manufacturers embrace dual-fuel technology to overcome diesel engine pollution restrictions and higher running expenses. As a result, traditional diesel generator sets are being phased out in dual fuel generators.

Furthermore, due to rising oil and gas exploration and development activities and aging of electric infrastructure, fuelled by growth in technology and IoT, computer-controlled portable generators are projected to grow in the global portable generator market.

The COVID-19 had a major impact on the global portable generator market. The imposition of strict lockdowns and norms laid by the government in the nation has stalled the market of portable generators in the world. Governments and municipal governments established severe restrictions. All non-essential activities were suspended, and end users' daily operations were halted; this negatively impacted the portable generator business.

Furthermore, manufacturing and supply chain delays were seen in the second quarter, posing a challenge to the portable generator market, as end-user industries were still not functioning at total capacity.
