Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Temporary Power Market by Generator Rating, End Use and by Fuel Type - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.
Temporary power market projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2016 to 2021
The temporary power market is projected to reach USD 6.40 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period. Developing economies such as India, Brazil, South Africa, and Argentina face a shortage of electricity due to lack of permanent power capacity, thereby triggering the demand for temporary power. Failure to predict future electricity demand and the inability to finance major power projects have also created a market for temporary power solutions.
In terms of market, by fuel type, diesel generators accounted for the largest share of the temporary power market in 2015. Energy demand from developing countries has rapidly grown over the past decade. Increasing power demand unmet by existing grid infrastructure has resulted in frequent power outages and blackouts. For industries and the commercial sector, these power outages can be extremely costly. Diesel generators supply power to industries, commercial and residential sectors during power cuts and prevent discontinuity in operations. Increasing need for continuous power supply and increase in number of planned events are the major drivers of the market.
In terms of market, by end-user, the events segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment of the temporary power market during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to upcoming events such as the FIFA World Cup and Cricket World Cup planned in 2018 and 2019. The European and North American markets are expected to have larger shares as compared to other regions.
North America is estimated to be the largest market for temporary power solutions, followed by the Asia-Pacific and South America. The U.S. accounted for the largest share in the North American temporary power market in 2015. This can be attributed to the aging T&D infrastructure, which causes frequent power outages and blackouts. The recovering construction industry in North America is a major factor in the growth of temporary power solutions. Several countries in the African and Asia-Pacific regions still do not have 100% access to electricity. These factors are expected to fuel the demand in the temporary power market.
