Diesel Generator Sets - Distributed Reciprocating Engines for Portable, Standby, Prime, Continuous, and Cogeneration Applications

NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Diesel Generator Sets - Distributed Reciprocating Engines for Portable, Standby, Prime, Continuous, and Cogeneration Applications
http://www.reportlinker.com/p01108966/Diesel-Generator-Sets---Distributed-Reciprocating-Engines-for-Portable-Standby-Prime-Continuous-and-Cogeneration-Applications.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Electrical_Equipment

Diesel-fueled generator sets (gensets) are distributed power generation units that use reciprocating internal combustion engines to produce useable energy from gaseous fuels. Distributed generation has the advantage of going online more quickly than traditional large centralized power stations, reducing demand pressure on the electrical grid and reducing inefficiencies that are common in centralized power generation, transmission, and distribution. As a source of emergency standby, prime, or continuous power, diesel-fueled gensets are poised for continued growth in most regions and power classes but face increasing competition from natural gas and dual-fuel configurations.

The number of specialized segments within the genset market spanning power classes, applications, and end-use customers offers a rich ecosystem of opportunities for market participants. As a whole, the market has experienced steady growth, but a boom in unconventional gas resources and tightening regulations targeting stationary generator emissions point to a turning point in the industry. Pike Research forecasts that diesel genset installations will reach 82 GW per year by 2018, representing $198 billion in cumulative revenue between 2013 and 2018.

This Pike Research report analyzes the global market potential for diesel gensets, from less than 15 kW to 6 MW, for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. The study includes in-depth assessments of global regions for capacity installations, an analysis of global gas resource development, and profiles of the key industry players engaged in this market. Worldwide market forecasts are provided through 2018 for annual installations and revenue, segmented by region and by power class.

Key Questions Addressed:

• What is the size of the global market opportunity for diesel gensets?
• How will the boom in unconventional gas resources and tightening emissions regulations for stationary generators affect the diesel genset market?
• How are emissions regulations affecting demand for diesel and natural gas gensets?
• Which power classes of gensets are poised for the strongest growth?
• How do natural disasters affect demand for standby generators?
• How will dual-fuel gensets affect the diesel genset market?
• Who are the key players in the market for diesel gensets?
• What are the global forecasts, for installations and revenue, for diesel gensets?
