Booming global construction industry requires gasoline generators

The construction industry is important across the world and is particularly prominent in the U.S. and China. There has been substantial growth in the former in the last few years. The U.S. Census Bureau states that non-residential construction spending has increased immensely and it is on track to witness a robust CAGR over the course of the forecast period. The construction industry should demand more portable generators that should boost the profile of the global gasoline generator market.

Since the year 2010, there has been a continuous rise in the U.S. non-residential construction spending and key stakeholders in the gasoline generator market are advised to take this into account while devising their business strategies. The North America gasoline generator market Others segment that includes construction is predicted to be worth approx. US$ 13 million in 2017 alone.

Frequent blackouts fuel the growth of the gasoline generator market

National grids of emerging economies can rarely cope with the surge in demand and capacity from their newly affluent citizens. The yawning chasm between the demand and supply causes power outages and rolling blackouts leading to millions of citizens being without power for hours if not days. Therefore, the gasoline generator market can be considered a saving grace for these people. For e.g. – The spare capacity of the U.K. national grid was 15% in 2010 and this has dropped to only 4% recently.
