Increasing Commercial Construction Projects Augmenting the India Diesel Genset Market Potential
The India diesel genset market generated a revenue of $1,039.7 million in 2018, and it is estimated to reach $1,518.1 million by 2024, advancing at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period 2019–2024 .

This is attributed to the increasing adoption of medium and high-hp diesel gensets across the country. Furthermore, macroeconomic growth, along with improvements in infrastructure, growth of the manufacturing sector, and surge in commercial construction projects is predicted to escalate the demand for these gensets for meeting prime and auxiliary power requirements in the near future. 

In simple terms, a diesel genset or a diesel generator set is an integrated system consisting of a generator and diesel engine that help in producing electricity. This electricity is used for meeting both prime and backup power requirements. For a genset, diesel works as a fuel, and these gensets are attached to a fuel delivery system, control panel, canopy or enclosure, alternator, cooling and exhaust system, and other auxiliary components.

Based on power rating, the diesel genset market in India is categorized into above 750, 376 kVA–750 kVA, 76 kVA–375 kVA, and kVA 5 kVA–75 kVA diesel gensets. In 2018, the 5 kVA–75 kVA category held the largest share in terms of sales volume in the market. This is due to the increase in demand for these gensets for residential and small commercial installations, telecom towers, and construction projects. Furthermore, these generators are produced by a large number of unorganized and organized market players, thus come under wide range of budgets.

Now, on the basis of application, the diesel genset market in India is classified into industrial, commercial, and residential. Among all, in 2018, commercial application was the largest revenue contributor in the market. This is ascribed to the high demand for diesel generators in commercial offices, hospitals, telecom towers, and hotels. In addition to this, the increasing construction rate of  colocation and captive date centers and rising cloud adoption by private and public companies are expected to fuel the demand for gensets in the near future.

In recent years, it has been witnessed that the residential and commercial real estate market of India grew significantly, owing to surging transparency, rapid urbanization, and advancements in the IT/ITeS sector. The growing customer confidence in real estate along with the rise in commercial construction projects, such as hotels, mobile phone towers, and metros, is anticipated to boost the adoption of diesel generators to fulfil power requirements.  Furthermore, localization and construction of data centers is predicted to further raise the demand for these generators, resulting in the prosperity of the Indian diesel genset market.

Hence, with the increasing use of diesel generators in the commercial, residential and industrial sectors, the Indian diesel genset market is expected to witness significant growth.
