The global portable generators market was valued at US$700mn in 2020, and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of around 6.5% over the next 10 years, according to a revised report published by an ESOMAR-certified market research and consulting firm Fact.MR
Diesel and gasoline portable generators are seen as major contributors to CO2 emissions. Over the past half-decade, various measures have been taken by governments around the world to curb air pollution. For instance, diesel generators are banned across various cities of Europe citing high levels of emissions.
In order to tackle the emission problem without compromising on electricity supply, market players have come up with hybrid generators that can significantly reduce emissions. Photovoltaic (PV) diesel hybrid generators have garnered increased attention of late.
Moreover, high spending on R&D and innovation has paved the way for innovative hybrid generators, attributed to changing consumer preference along with stringent environmental policies laid down by government bodies.
