Industry: Machinery | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)


The global natural gas generator market has experienced a lucrative growth over the past few years and is projected to witness significant growth prospects over the coming years. The purposeful turn toward the adoption of natural gas gensets can be attributed to the surging need for large-scale standby electric power. Diesel generators have dominated the market over several decades and natural gas alternatives were seldom considered. However, the later was widely accepted for applications such as combined heat & power (CHP) and load management. 


Gas engines, when compared to diesel engines has higher first cost and lower power density. These were mainly designed for extended duty. Maintenance cost fuel cost, and emissions remained the key concerns in this particular application. However, recent events and research studies have exposed some restraining factors of diesel engines in specific applications.

Owing to the significant development in gas-fueled generation abilities to meet the expected load acceptance and code-driven start time standards, the market is booming and is estimated to surpass the capabilities of diesel engines over the next few years.  Furthermore, its growing applicability for standby duty has made natural gas generators squarely into mainstream industry and are being absorbed into industrial security and commercial facilities. 


High investment and purchasing costs are the key restraining factors hindering the market growth. Several efforts are been undertaken by the industry players to manufacture these at acceptable prices and enable the facility managers to mandate its installation. Another challenge that prevailed was the attempt to operate these at fairly light loads during routine testing and exercising procedures. To combat this challenge, the industry players are manufacturing standby engines that are pre-configured not allow operation load for more than one hour every month. 


On the basis type, the market has been segmented into composite, aluminum, and steel. Based on the application/end-use type, the market categorization includes residential, commercial, and industrial. The commercial business has recognized the benefits of LP or natural gas generators. The commercial line in the industry has an extensive range of applications such as televisions & radio stations, assisted living complex, fire & police, clinic, convenience store, stations, hardware store, gas station, office building, hotel, pharmacy, retail store, restaurant, school, and warehouse. 

Regional Outlook:

Geographically, the natural gas generator market has been segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and MEA. North America dominated the global market space over the recent years, and this can be attributed to the developed industrial infrastructure, large shale gas reserves, and the growing government focus on cost reduction of standby electrical supplies. U.S. is the key contributor for the region’s growth as there is a growing focus on clean energy resources and the existence of a large number of generator OEMs.

Competitive Landscape:

Some of the key players operating in this market comprise of Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd.; Briggs & Stratton Corporation; Cummins Inc.; Generac Holdings Inc.; Doosan Corporation; HIMOINSA S.L.; Caterpillar Inc.; and Kohler Co., Inc., among many others. The market players are adopting numerous expansion strategies such as collaborations, partnerships, and mergers & acquisitions. 

For instance, in November 2019, Rolls-Royce and VPower Group entered into a strategic partnership with each other to expand their foothold over the market by the development of MTU gas gensets. The fleet is being developed to deploy support key business streams such as LNG-to-power, distributed & fast track power solutions of VPower Group. Furthermore, a voluntary collaborative activity among natural gas purchasers is focusing on responsible and promote safe practices. The current members of the Natural Gas Supply Collaborative (NGSC) include Calpine Corporation, Austin Energy, Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Vermont Gas, DTE Energy, CPS Energy, Énergir, National Grid, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, NRG Energy, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, NW Natural, and Xcel Energy.
