The global portable generators market is projected to reach USD 4.83 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. Typically, a portable generator consists of an engine, a power generator head, power receptacle or output, and a source of fuel. The engine powers the generator head using fuel. The mechanical energy required to power the generator is supplied by a spinning shaft connected to the engine and the powerhead. The powerhead converts mechanical energy into the required electrical energy. Additionally, speed regulators are provided to maintain a constant speed.

Furthermore, with the increasing demand for electric vehicles, companies are manufacturing portable generators that can power car batteries. Environmental concerns and government regulations have led to the popularity of natural gas-fueled portable generators.

The industrial use of portable generators is becoming increasingly essential and popular. They are used as the prime power supply or back up in industries situated in remote areas with frequent power shutdowns.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness huge demand for portable generators in the future due to the increase in the disposable income, and lack of stable and continuous electricity supply.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Preference for natural gas-fueled generators
  • Demand for environment-friendly generators
  • Increasing disposable income and need for continuous electricity supply
  • Adoption of multipurpose power generation systems
  • High use of portable generators in building and construction
