“Power Industry to lead black start generator market during 2016–2021”
The power industry is the largest and highest growing segment in the black start generator market, segmented by industry. New power plants are being constructed at a rapid rate in emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Brazil, and Mexico to meet growing power demand. A large numbers of power plants are being retired in developed countries such as the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Germany and are being replaced by new power plants to maintain their power supply. These countries are likely to be high growth markets for black start generators during 2016–2021.

“Asia-Pacific to dominate black start generator market by 2021”
Asia-Pacific is witnessing high investments in the construction of new power plants, majorly in China, India Indonesia, and Thailand. China has always been a popular destination for manufacturers, however, in last two years India has observed tremendous growth in foreign investments.
