The portable generator market size will grow to USD 2.5 billion by 2026 (forecast year) from USD 1.8 billion in 2021 (estimated year), at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. Need for backup power during blackouts is one of the key factors driving the growth of the portable generator market. Increase in adoption of dual fuel and inverter generator to offer lucrative opportunities for the portable generator market during the forecast period.
The emergency segment is expected to dominate the portable generator market, by application, during the forecast period.
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. Portable generators that are used for shorter durations during outages are known as emergency generators. These generators have an average running time of 10–12 hours with a single filling of the tank. Emergency portable generators are mainly used when natural calamities such as storms, heavy rains, and heat waves disrupt the transmission & distribution infrastructure. Inadequate power generation infrastructure and poor grid networks in developing countries have forced small-scale manufacturers and businesses to rely on emergency portable generators.
