Global outlook of the generator market for telecom sector

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global generator market for telecom sector to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a moderate CAGR of more than 2% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the expansion of rural telecom infrastructure to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The capital intensive nature of the telecom industry makes it highly dependent on subscriber density, which is one of the major reasons for the under-development of the rural telecom industry. Increasing income levels and initiatives from governments will drive the expansion of telecom networks in rural areas. Since rural areas lack grid connectivity and reliability, this network expansion will in turn, drive the demand for generators from the telecom sector.

One of the major trends that will gain traction in the market during the next four years is the rise in adoption of hybrid power systems. When compared to conventional power supply systems, hybrid power systems have more cost-effective and energy-efficient parameters. The exponential growth of the telecom industry will lead to the installation of telecom towers in remote locations that require a combination of renewable energy sources and diesel generators for backup power. Hybrid power systems offer several benefits such as reduced operating costs and GHG emissions and increased reliability which will also aid in driving their adoption among telecom companies.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Characterized by the presence of a considerable number of vendors, this market appears to be fragmented. Though the leading vendors pose a stiff competition to the regional vendors by providing specialized products, the coming years will witness the entry of several national and regional vendors who offer products at comparatively lower prices. Vendors are currently focusing on providing generators that offer higher power output capacity and reduced carbon emissions. To sustain the competition and gain market shares, vendors have the need to differentiate their product offerings in terms of enhanced quality and technological developments. Several vendors have also started forming strategic alliances with competitors to improve their market potential and increase profit margins.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Caterpillar
  • Cummins
  • Generac Power Systems
  • Kohler
  • MTU Onsite Energy

The other prominent vendors in the market are GE Energy, FG Wilson, Kirloskar Oil Engines, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Pramac, and Yanmar.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the generator market for telecom sector

  • On-grid
  • Off-grid

On-grid generators are used for power backup in case of power outages and grid failure and their application is prominent in urban and developed areas with reliable grid supply. The on-grid segment dominated the market during 2015 and our analysts predict that this segment will continue its market dominance throughout the forecast period as well. The high teledensity in urban areas which requires the installation of a large number of telecom tower installations will fuel the demand for generators from this segment.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the generator market for telecom sector

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • Europe
  • MENA

According to this market study, APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the market throughout the forecast period. The large-scale deployment of towers for long-term evolution and the upgradation of existing telecom power systems to high-efficiency power systems, will bolster the market’s growth prospects in this region.
