Africa Diesel Gensets Market Opportunities & Forecast, 2021: TechSci Research Report

Sep 13, 2016, 11:30 ET from TechSci Research

NEW YORK, September 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The diesel genset market in Africa is expected to grow in coming years on account of increasing demand of power in the region. The African countries such as Tanzania, Uganda, etc. are facing severe power crisis due to poor power infrastructure. The huge demand supply gap in the region is attributed to lack of grid connectivity in the region. The diesel gensets can play a major role in the African region to meet the power requirements on account of reliable supply of electricity from the same. The electrification rate in major part of the continent has been below 30% which creates a huge opportunity for deployment of diesel gensets in the region. Industries and commercial centres require regular supply of power which can be met by diesel gensets in Africa region. The industrial development in African region would spur the demand for diesel gensets in near future. The lack of power transmission and distribution infrastructure is a big bottleneck in power sector of Africa. The deployment of diesel gensets at electricity consumption centres creates a distributed energy generation system which reduces grid congestion. The development of decentralized diesel based power generation infrastructure can cater the electricity needs of communities isolated from the grid in Africa region. Apart from that increase in population would spur the electricity requirements in Africa which would further lead to increase in demand of diesel gensets in near future.

Africa Diesel Genset Market: Drivers and Restraints

The increasing demand of electricity in Africa region would lead to huge upsurge in demand for diesel gensets in near future. The huge demand supply gap of electricity in the region would result in deployment of diesel gensets in African markets. The increase in population coupled with industrial and commercial sector development would drive the market for diesel gensets in African countries. In addition, development of technology pertaining to diesel gensets would drive its market in African countries. However increasing focus on renewable sources of electricity would pose a challenging situation for diesel gensets business in Africa. The development of solar power plants in Africa region has received major thrust on account of governments' policy in African countries and huge investments made by the solar power companies. The major drawback of diesel gensets is the emission of harmful gases during its operations. The renewable source of electricity is considered as an alternate to diesel power generations globally. The huge deployment of renewable energy generation systems would hamper the growth of diesel gensets business in Africa region in near future.
