Published | 13 September 2022

UAE diesel generator set market is flourishing at a robust rate due to an increasing number of foreign direct investments in greenfield constructions. This, in turn, could present more growth prospects for the diesel generator sets in healthcare, lodging, industrial, retail, and electricity developments in the UAE.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated UAE diesel generator set market size at USD 163.6 million in 2021 and forecasts UAE diesel generator set market size to grow at a significant CAGR of 14.7% during the forecast period (2022–2028), reaching USD 402.3 million by 2028. The increasing FDI in the country’s construction sector is a major growth factor for the market. The UAE government’s measures to broaden the economy and increase the emphasis on non-oil sectors have had a favorable impact on the volume of foreign investments in the country.

UAE Diesel Generator Set Market Booming Infrastructure Sector

In UAE diesel generator set market, the commercial and telecom sector significantly increased its market share. The emergence of mega-events such as Dubai Expo 2020 and the expansion of government projects such as UAE Vision 2021 have both made a significant contribution to the country's expanding construction industry. Therefore, it is projected that these factors will accelerate the growth of the UAE diesel generator set market. This is attributable to the growing use of these generator sets as a backup electrical supply in retail establishments, healthcare facilities, lodging facilities, and industrial sites.

Growth Factors

Increasing Demand for Primary and Secondary Power Sources

Significant growth in UAE diesel generator set market is linked to the rising demand for primary and secondary power sources, particularly in residential structures, retail establishments, office buildings, hospitals, and lodging facilities. The commercial sector's high volume need for medium- and high-power diesel generator sets, as well as the expansion of the manufacturing, construction, mining, energy & power, oil & gas, and other industries, is a other major factor driving the market. The UAE has also witnessed an increase in the use of datacenters by hyperscale cloud providers and companies from other industries who want to take advantage of the increasing local and international data consumption. The necessity for cloud-based facilities in the country has also been spurred by the government. Additionally, more data storage capacity is now crucial in the UAE due to the rapid development of emerging technologies, such as IoT, big data, edge computing, and 5G connection.

Companies in construction, oil and gas sectors, and other organizations across the UAE are becoming more and more dependent on fuel-efficient DG sets. Major participants in the UAE Diesel Generator Set Market are launching novel goods, forming alliances, and allocating resources and finance to set up or improve their supply chains in order to meet the burgeoning demand.

A rising demand for a consistent and dependable supply of energy as a result of rapid industrialization could also drive the market. Additionally, a number of government initiatives, including Dubai's Industrial Strategy 2030, Plan Abu Dhabi 2030, Fujairah Plan 2040, and UAE Water Security Strategy 2036, aim to improve public services such as water supply, housing, transportation, infrastructure, and tourism. As a result, there is a high demand in the UAE for diesel generator sets.
