An engine generator set is more commonly known as genset. A generator or genset is defined as a machine which converts mechanical energy into electrical energy through combustion of a fuel. Although most engine driven generators have been viewed as dangerous to the environment, they offer various advantages to industrial users. They are generally rated in terms of torque or horsepower, Kilowatts or watts. The main components of an engine driven generator includes a fuel supply mechanism, engine, a generator voltage regulator, a constant engine speed regulator, lubrication system, and cooling & exhaust systems. Generators usually use gasoline, natural gas, diesel, propane, water, biodiesel, sewage gas, or hydrogen as fuel. Generators of small size use gasoline (petrol) or diesel as fuel, and the larger ones run on natural gas or diesel. Some engines may also operate on gas and diesel simultaneously. Gasoline generators which use gasoline work in a manner similar to other generators; they are widely used due their distinct advantage of being portable. When choosing a generator, one must consider the main deciding factors such as understanding the main purpose of the generator, its noise level, fuel tank capacity, price, kilowatt rating and efficiency, RPM and frequency, controls, and related switchgear. Gensets are available in different sizes and horsepower of engines. They are usually compact, depending on their power output, but generally can be moved from one place to another. Gasoline genset is very useful for many applications, as they can be used not just for home use, but also for camping, on the site jobs, and in other premises. Contractors use this type of generator as they can be used for different construction jobs. Also, gasoline powered generators have cheaper upfront price tags and their maintenance cost is less.
Intensifying load on utility power supply, along with increasing consumer awareness about backup power solutions, and increasing severity of weather outages are the key factors anticipated to drive the gasoline genset market during the forecast period. Lifestyle and work culture has changed due to rising globalization and urbanization, which has eventually increased the usage of electricity. Households, electric vehicles, and production & manufacturing companies are large consumers of electricity. The increasing consumption of electricity is likely to drive the gasoline genset market in the next few years. Creating electricity backup is one of the major uses of gasoline gensets. Additionally, prolonged power supply interruptions mainly on account of high winds, sleet storms, and freezing rain which destroy power lines and equipment will continue to drive product deployment worldwide. Furthermore, increased consumer awareness, rising power demand, fragile power grid systems, and prolonged power outages are amongst the most instrumental trends that will enhance the global gasoline genset market size.
The gasoline genset market can be segmented based on power rating, end-user, phase, and region. In terms of power rating, the market can be classified into <2 kVA, 2-3.5 kVA, 3.5-5 kVA, 5-6.5 kVA, 6.5-8 kVA, and 8-15 kVA. In terms of end-user, the market is categorized into residential, commercial, and construction. Based on phase, the gasoline genset market can be segregated into single phase and three phase. Based on region, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America is projected to dominate the global market throughout the forecast period,followed byAsia Pacific.
Some of the key players operating in the global gasoline genset market are Caterpillar, Westerbeke Corporation, Cummins, AMA Accessori Macchine Agricole, Atlas Copco, Briggs & Stratton, Armstrong Power, SUMEC Machinery & Electric Co., Ltd., Kirloskar, Generac, Jet Power Company, Kohler Power, Honeywell, SUMBER MAS SEJAHTERA, Honda Motor, KOEL Green, GPI, Wacker Neuson, and John Deere. Key market players are focused on the development and introduction of innovative gasoline gensets. Intelligent integration of components is also a recent trend in the gasoline genset market.
