Global power rental market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9% and surpass $ 20 billion by 2024 on account of increasing power loss due to aging infrastructure and limited access to electricity in rural areas. Rental power plants are the best solution for the temporary power shortage. The rental power plants are designed to stabilize the utility power grids and to provide extra energy to the communities and support industries that are facing efficiency problems due to insufficient power supply.

Upsurge in the demand from the events and entertainment industry and power needs in the natural disaster-affected regions are some of the factors driving the power rental market growth, globally. Growing demand for electricity coupled with power outages, which is a common problem in underdeveloped and developing nations, would boost the global power rental market. Furthermore, rising awareness about the advantages of outsourcing is making customers more bias towards renting power, as this allows them to focus on their core competencies expertise instead of worrying over managing finances for purchasing the machine.

In terms of fuel type, global power rental market is categorized into diesel generators, gas generators and others. The diesel generators category accounted for a significant portion of the power rental market in 2018, as these generators provide a quick response, as well as have a long running life and easy availability of fuel. Moreover, diesel generators help regulate fluctuations by providing continuous stream of voltage power, without dips and peaks of other devices. Diesel generators are used in many manufacturing and commercial facilities and are easily available in portable form, thus diesel run generators are expected to maintain their strong market position during the forecast period.

In terms of application, global power rental market is categorized into commercial, manufacturing, event, construction, utilities, mining, oil & gas and others. The utilities category accounted for a significant portion of the global market in 2018, owing to aging fleet of thermal power plants in various regions, which in turn is resulting in their conversion or decommissioning into natural gas-fueled plants. Thus, to fill the power supply demand gap during the maintenance, conversion or shut down of power plants, utility companies are renting power generators of different ratings.

Regionally, North America is the largest market for power rental across the globe, on account of aging infrastructure and increasing power demand in the region. Moreover, power rental market in Middle East & Africa is witnessing significant growth, backed by increasing number of construction projects, growing utilities sector, extreme weather conditions, post-disaster emergencies and unavailability of power grid in remote locations. Over the coming years, power rental market in Middle East & Africa is expected to register significant growth.

Global power rental market is highly fragmented, owing to the presence of many power rental players in the market. Vendors provide required power solutions such as modular generation systems to meet the evolving needs of the end-user industries. Some of the leading players in the global power rental market are Kohler Co., Atlas Copco, Caterpillar Inc., Aggreko PLC, among others.
