Gasoline Generator Market Analysis, Trends, Forecast, 2016-2026

Gasoline generators are widely used as power backups in households and small-scale industries. As the name suggests, these generators use gasoline as a fuel source to provide uninterrupted power supply to end-users. Gasoline generators, along with petrol- and diesel- generators work on the principle of electromagnetic induction, converting mechanical energy from an external source to electrical energy.

Global Gasoline Generator Market: Drivers & Restraints

Gasoline generators are widely used in households as a power backup, as they are portable, make relatively lesser noise, and are affordable than diesel generators. Strong demand from developing countries, where intermittent power supply is still a major challenge, will continue to create sustained demand for gasoline generators. However, gasoline generators will continue to face stiff competition from diesel generators, owing to their lower energy efficiency and higher maintenance costs.

On the plus side, gasoline generators are relatively affordable than diesel generators – an average 5500 Watt gasoline generator costs one-fourth of a diesel generator. Owing to the price advantage, gasoline generators are highly sought-after by sporadic users, whereas, for job sites and large industries, diesel generators are preferred.

Gasoline Generator Market: Regional Outlook

Based on the geographic regions, global gasoline generator market is segmented into seven key regions — North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, APEJ, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. Among the aforementioned regions, demand for gasoline generators is highest in APEJ. Many countries in APEJ are yet to provide round-the-clock power supply, prompting consumers to invest in power backups. As a result, demand for generators and inverters has grown at a steady rate, with gasoline generators accounting for a substantial share of the region’s uninterrupted power supply market. In addition to steady demand from the residential segment, adoption in small-scale industries is also expected to fuel growth of the APEJ gasoline generator market in the near future.
