The Portable Generator Market size is predicted to hit around US$ 6.2 billion by 2030 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.
Portable generator, also known as engine generator, is an engine driven generator that is manufactured for multiple uses. Portable generator consists of a prime mover, which is engine, and electrical generator. These are mounted together to form an electric generation unit.
Portable generators are being used in the construction industry on a large scale which has contributed to the market's growth. The construction industry utilizes tools such as power drills, air hammers, compressors, drills etc., which can be powered up using a portable generator. Sectors such as automotive, oil and gas, IT and agriculture have witnessed a significant increase in electricity consumption. Thus the demand for a steady flow of electricity has also increased. This has also contributed to increasing the demand for portable generators.
Portable generators, which are also commonly known as engine generators and, as the name indicate, are generators driven by an engine. The portable generators consist of an engine that is the primary mover, and an electrical generator mounted together to form a single electrical unit with various parts assembled. The key feature of these generators is that they need not be fixed in one place and can be moved anywhere as per the requirement and when it is needed. It can be started manually and is mainly used to provide electricity during power outages or when electricity is required temporarily while camping and other recreation activities.
The frequent power outage has increased demand for an uninterrupted flow of electricity, which has significantly driven the sales of portable generators. The shortage of reliable sources of power supply during natural calamities has also led to an increase in demand for portable generators, which can supply a steady source of electricity at a stretch of 10-12 hours on a full tank. The availability of alternate sources of power supply such as solar power systems, inverters, UPS systems which are more environment-friendly and easy to use, will hinder the growth of the global portable generator market. Inverter generators using high-tech magnets and electrical circuits, which are advanced, have an opportunity to capture a considerable market share in the generators segment.
Rise in demand for uninterrupted power supply in residential and commercial establishments is likely to drive the global portable generator market during the forecast period. Portable generator is less expensive than stationary generator. This makes its adoption preferable in residential and commercial establishments.
Portable generators are used at construction sites to operate power tools, namely paint sprayers, air compressors, drills, saws, etc. to provide optimal output with minimal fuel consumption.
The growing urbanisation coupled with increasing frequency of power grid failures has led the consumers to opt for portable generators, particularly for residential applications, so as to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply.
The governments in various countries have implemented stringent regulations regarding the negative environmental impact of portable generators. As a result, the manufacturers are introducing generators with lower greenhouse gas emissions.
The availability of alternative power backup systems such as inverters, UPS systems, solar generator and solar energy systems poses a major threat to the growth of the global portable power generator market as these systems are often more environment-friendly and easier to maintain.

Gasoline segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 40% in the year 2020
Based on fuel, the global portable generator market is segmented into natural gas, diesel, gasoline and others. The gasoline segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 40% in the year 2020. This growth can be attributed to its compatibility with the small engine and also because gasoline is readily available; it also enables a quick start of the engine.
Emergency segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 65% in the year 2020
Based on application, the global portable generator market is segmented into prime/continuous and emergency. The emergency segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 65% in the year 2020. This growth can be attributed to the reliability of businesses and small-scale manufacturers on emergency generators due to unstable power grids and frequent power outages resulting from inadequate power generation infrastructure.
5 – 10 kW segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 45% in the year 2020
Based on power rating, the global portable generator market is segmented into below 5 kW, 5–10 kW, and 10–20 kW. The 5 – 10 kW segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 45% in the year 2020. This growth is mainly attributed to the residential use of these generators for powering up air conditioners, television, lights etc.
Residential segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 42% in the year 2020
Based on end-user, the global portable generator market is segmented into industrial, residential and commercial. The residential segment dominated the market and held the largest market share of 42% in the year 2020. This growth is mainly due to the frequent power outages in developing countries owing to the inadequacy of power generating infrastructure.
Based on geography, the global portable generator market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia-Pacific dominated the market and held the largest market share of 36% in the year 2020. This growth is mainly due to the rising consumption levels of electricity in developing countries for residential or industrial purposes. Rising consumption requires a steady flow of electricity and therefore increased the demand for portable generators. North America has also witnessed significant growth owing to natural calamities causing the disruption of electricity distribution and power outages for a long duration. Portable generators are pretty helpful during such situations, and hence there is an increase in demand in the North American market. The market in Middle East & Africa is expected to grow due to the growing use of portable generators at construction sites and mining sites.
Governments of various countries have imposed restrictions on the movement of individuals and economic activities to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, several industries had to halt their operations temporarily. Disruption in the operation of industrial sector has adversely affected the demand for electricity, as it is the major consumer of electricity. This, in turn, is expected to hamper the demand for portable generators.
The major players in the market are Hyundai Power, Honda Power, Briggs & Stratton, Yamaha, Generac, Champion, United Power Technology, Wacker Neuson, KOHLER, TTI, Sawafuji, Pramac, Honeywell, Eaton, HGI, Cummins Inc.
