The global portable generator market reached a value of US$ 4.6 billion in 2021. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach US$ 6.7 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.49% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst is continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different End-use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.



Portable generators are backup devices designed to provide temporary AC power for non-hardwired, stand-alone applications. These generators consist of internal combustion engine, starter, alternator, fuel tank and outlets which are assembled together onto a metal frame in a single unit. Low-end models of portable generators support few basic home appliances, whereas, the high-end models can provide power backup to the whole house. Nowadays, portable generators are gaining traction among the consumers as they are cost-effective and can be easily moved from one place to another.

Global Portable Generator Market Drivers/Constraints:
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.

Key Market Segmentation
