Spurred on by transmission and distribution bottlenecks and ensuing power shortage, the Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC’s) 15-2,000 kilovolt-ampere (kVA) diesel genset market is poised for steady growth. Several new construction projects coming up over the next five years will sustain the need for diesel gensets and drive sales.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan’s (energy.frost.com) Strategic Analysis of GCC Diesel Genset Market (15-2,000 kVA) research finds that market earned revenues of more than $564.6 million in 2011 and estimates this to reach $950.4 million in 2018.
"Since grid electricity supply is either unreliable owing to extreme desert conditions or is prohibitively priced, several companies, particularly those drilling in oil reserves, rely on diesel genset power to maintain operational effectiveness," said Frost & Sullivan Energy & Power Systems Program Manager Anup Barapatre. "Demand from the residential segment will increase owing to the growing population and higher living standards."
In Saudi Arabia, high peak power deficit, along with delayed power plant projects, is expected to drive the uptake of diesel gensets. Qatar, Oman, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait will witness high growth rates due to industrial and commercial development.
Although these industrial and commercial segments are picking up pace, certain projects that were deferred or cancelled due to the 2009 economic downturn curb sales of diesel gensets in the GCC.
Increasing focus on alternative sources such as solar energy, high fuel costs, and environmental concerns will adversely impact the demand for diesel gensets. The increasing presence of manufacturers from China and India will intensify competition in the region, thereby decreasing profit margins.
"Suppliers must form local joint ventures and partnerships to strengthen their brand name and establish business relationships with key end users," noted Barapatre. "Sound local logistics support is necessary to supply units and transfer personnel to remote locations."
Ensuring quality after-sales services, skilled manpower, and spare parts availability will sustain business in the long run.
