Rest of Asia Pacific includes Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand. The region is the most populated region in the world and is expected to become the largest energy-consuming region globally. It comprises many developing countries and requires more energy for its development. According to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the region’s share of global energy consumption is expected to increase to 56% by 2035 from 34% in 2010. The industrial sector in China contributed more than 37% of its GDP in 2020. The growth of the industrial sector has tremendously increased power production and consumption in China. These factors have made China one of the most lucrative markets for the power industry. Thus, increase in demand for power is likely to offer growth opportunities for portable generator market during he forecast period.

The portable generator market, by application, is segmented into emergency and prime/continuous. The emergency segment, by application, is projected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by increasing weather-related power outages and aging power generation & distribution networks. Furthermore, the usage of portable generators during emergency backup can prevent food from spoiling, keep lights on, and help in other day-to-day requirements.
