The generators of the future have electronic governors and automatic voltage regulators built in. The generators are more energy-efficient owing to these technologies, which mechanically regulate the speed of the generator engines as needed. Additionally, they include some extra features like remote genset monitoring. These advancements may give diesel gensets a longer lifespan, helping the market to expand. Governments across African nations are concentrating on achieving several development goals, including increasing the time needed to set up the distribution and transmission infrastructure, and achieving a significant improvement in the rate of rural electrification. All these factors are expected boost the further growth of Africa diesel genset market during the forecast period.

Government programs to develop infrastructure

Due to government initiatives, such as the National Transport Master Plan 2050, Vision 2025, and National Development Plan (NDP) 2030, electricity demand is expected to increase in South Africa over the next few years, which is expected to drive the growth of Africa diesel genset market. By 2030, the NDP wants to significantly reduce both poverty and inequality. Additionally, the country performs well among African counterparts in terms of infrastructure for transportation and logistics, as well as trade facilitation. It results in offering lucrative growth opportunities for Africa diesel genset market.

Increasing demand for hybrid, bi-fuel, and inverter generators

In an effort to find alternative energy sources to replace conventional fossil fuels, new and innovative fuel sources are currently being developed. Many OEMs are now offering hybrid generators, which are essentially internal combustion engines with a battery. When the load is high, these hybrid gensets supply power directly to the engine, while when the load is low, the battery supplies power. They reduce generator running time, fuel consumption, and noise. They have several advantages over traditional gensets and are expected to make inroads into mobile gensets, which are primarily used in remote area applications, urban construction sites, and the mining industry.

Restraints

Environmental concerns

Numerous residential, commercial, and industrial uses exist for diesel generators. Burning diesel releases nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and particulates. These emissions damage both the environment and occupants as they are directly released into the atmosphere. Around the world, a number of regulations have been put into place to lessen the air and noise pollution caused by generator sets. As environmental concerns have increased, countries have developed their own set of rules and policies to cut back on air pollution. Depending on the volume of emissions from dangerous gases, such as SOx, NOx, and CO2, countries of Africa have various environmental laws, policies, and subsidy programs.  Ship component manufacturers are focused on the development of marine propulsion systems that comply with various environment regulations formulated by governments across Africa. This presents a significant challenge for emerging and local companies operating in the generator sales market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Africa Diesel Genset Market

COVID-19 pandemic has led to a decline in demand from the power range.
