Demand for cleaner power sources boosts gas genset sales, finds Frost & Sullivan

London – February 25, 2020 – Stringent environmental regulations, declining gas prices, and increasing demand for flexible transmission of renewable power have sparked a growing interest in gas-powered generator sets in Europe. A recent analysis by Frost & Sullivan shows that the market revenue for gas gensets in Europe is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.3%, from $307.2 million in 2018 to $441.6 million by 2025, while unit sales are set to increase at a CAGR of 3.2%, reaching 2,034 units by 2025.

“As Europe moves towards meeting its emission reductions targets by 2030, the gas gensets market is positioned for fairly good growth in the near future,” said Jonathan Robinson, Global Energy Program Lead at Frost & Sullivan. “Gas gensets are expected to gain market share among end-user segments that were dominated by diesel gensets as the region moves towards lower-emission fuel sources.”

The strengthening of the gas pipeline infrastructure and storage network across Europe is leading to the increasing uptake of gas gensets in prime power and back-up power applications. The dominance of diesel gensets in back-up power applications is also being disrupted by gas gensets as a result of stringent environmental emission regulations and declining natural gas prices. The replacement market for gas gensets presents strong growth prospects as customers move towards the latest generation of gensets to power their operations.

“The growth of power storage is also expected to play a role in increasing gas gensets sales, as the demand for hybrid gensets with power storage capabilities rises,” noted Robinson. “Furthermore, expansion of product lines and product differentiation through acquisitions or new product introductions by establishing partnerships and new channels will expand customer reach.”

Market participants can also leverage the opportunities for growth in:

  • Optimizing operations to reduce costs and generate higher revenues.
  • Introducing new product lines to extend consumer reach.
  • Integrating gas gensets with power storage capabilities for better product differentiation.
  • Incorporating active emission control measures to meet new norms.
