Residential Generators, 2nd Edition - U.S. Market and World Data

  1. 1. Get more info on this report!Residential Generators, 2nd Edition - U.S. Market and World DataJanuary 1, 2010IntroductionElectricity is a basic necessity and is critical for the safety, comfort and convenience ofmodern households. Widespread use of electronics and information andcommunications technologies for entertainment and work by residential users hasfurther increased the dependence on electricity. Homes reliant upon grid electricity oftenexperience power failures due to disruptions caused by supply shortages, equipmentfailure or weather related outages. Residential users are increasingly investing in back-up or standby power generators to provide electricity during such events.Driven by population and income growth, increasing urbanization and electrification andan increasing dependence on electrical appliances and devices, global residentialelectric consumption continues to grow. Further, residential demand for electricity indeveloping nations has grown by over 40% since 2000. However, the generation andsupply of electricity in many of these nations has not kept pace. More than eightycountries around the world, including major economies such as India and China, arecurrently experiencing significant, long-term energy shortages.In 2009, nearly 9.3 million generators were sold globally for residential applications.Supported by a recovery in the global economy, worldwide residential engine-generatorunit sales are expected to grow by 7% per year to nearly 13 million units in 2014.Concurrently, the U.S. market for residential gensets is expected to continue to benefitfrom consumer desire to insure against utility power failure resulting from an aginginfrastructure and increasing climate-related events and approach $1.2 billion in 2014.Residential Generators, 2nd Edition - U.S. Market and World Data includes a broadreview of the global market for residential generators. The report provides a discussionof residential generator products and technologies as well as technologies whichcompete with traditional combustion engine-driven gensets. Global market demand forresidential generators is quantified and projections for growth in demand are provided,along with the key factors influencing this growth. The report also provides profiles of 10

  3. 3. Global Electric Power Demand TrendsDriven by population and income growth, increasing urbanization and electrification andan increasing dependence on electrical appliances and devices, global residentialelectric consumption is expected to continue to grow. World consumption of electricityby households is anticipated to increase 2.9% a year from 4,255 terawatt hours in 2005to 5,679 terawatt hours in 2015.Consumers are more dependent than ever upon electric powered devices for dailyliving. Electric appliances and devices are used in nearly every aspect of dailyhousehold life.Residents leverage these items to provide basic modern conveniences such as heating,cooling, refrigeration, food preparation and cooking, communications and entertainment.Increasing dependency on electric appliances and devices is not limited to the world’sdeveloped economies. In the developing countries, strong economic growth translatesto growing demand for electricity. Rural electrification is enabling increasing numbers ofhouseholds around the world to leverage basic electric appliances for lighting, heating,cooling and refrigeration.Economic prosperity is further driving higher standards of living in many developingnations around the world. These increases in household and disposable income aredriving greater demand for convenience appliances such as dishwashers,washer/dryers and small kitchen electrics as well as for consumer electronic devices forentertainment and communications.Since 2004, the growth of household electricity consumption by small electrical andelectronic devices has been the most rapid of all appliance categories globally.Ownership levels of ICTs and consumer electronics in both developed and developingcountries has been rapidly rising. As a result, these products now account forapproximately 15% of global residential electricity consumptionIn the News Increasing Demand for Electricity Reveals BrightFuture for Residential Generators MarketNew York, December 18 2009 - Driven by population and income growth, increasingurbanization and electrification and an increasing dependence on electrical appliancesand devices, global residential electric consumption is growing at an electrifying rate;40% since 2000 in developing nations. However, the generation and supply of electricityin many of these nations has not kept pace with many of these countries experiencinglong-term energy shortages as a result of governments’ failure to plan for increased
