The report provides The global market for residential generators is forecast to reach US$11.2 billion by 2024 driven by the growing popularity of backup power to energize a house especially against the backdrop of rising number of smart connected homes and buildings where uninterrupted energy supply is almost a sacrosanct need. Rising electricity consumption supported by growing population and rapid industrialization juxtaposed with aging power supply and distribution infrastructure is creating a world of unstable electricity supply and distribution. Governments, industries and individual homeowners, under this scenario are increasingly focusing on creating and ensuring a more secure electricity supply. Aging energy infrastructure in developed economies and poor quality infrastructure in developing countries represent the single largest threat to energy security and the biggest growth driver for residential generators. Stressed electric grids and power delivery networks amplify the risk of blackouts, a scenario which can be least afforded in the current era of digitalization and electronification. Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Other major factors influencing growth include recovery in home prices and property value and growth in residential construction activity; growing importance of residential energy management and the ensuing demand for standby generators; rising popularity of portable residential generators backed by benefits such as easy portability, low installation costs and cheap maintenance; effervescent technology innovation; and focus on reducing carbon footprint and the resulting emphasis placed on noise-free, ecologically friendly generators with advanced high efficiency internal combustion engines. Europe and Asia remain equally large markets worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 5.5% over the analysis period, led by factors such as growing population and government focus on smart cities and homes for sustainable living; widespread engineered electrical power shutdown and rolling blackouts in developing economies as a means to cope with electricity demand in excess of utility network capability; growing base of affluent middle class population with an insatiable appetite for electronic living and entertainment and the resulting increase in digital home networks hardwired for pervasive intelligence, ubiquitous connectivity and uninterrupted power supply.
