Global Generator Control Unit Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A generator control unit is a device that helps to manage the power output of a generator. It can help to ensure that the generator runs smoothly and efficiently, and it can also help to protect the equipment from damage. The control unit can also help to keep the voltage level stable, which is important for ensuring that electronic devices operate correctly.

Analog Based:

Analog Based is a technology that uses continuous variable resistors and capacitors to represent digital values in the form of voltage or current. It's major application areas include consumer electronics, automotive, communication systems and other industrial applications. The growth factor for this market is high demand from emerging economies such as India & China which are adopting advanced technologies at a faster pace compared to developed countries like U.S., Germany etcetera.

Digital Based:

The digital based system is used in the generator control unit to monitor and control the condition of different components of diesel generators. It helps to identify problems and carry out preventive maintenance so that these systems can work efficiently for a longer duration.

This system monitors various parameters such as coolant temperature, oil pressure, fuel pressure, voltage among others which are essential for proper functioning of a generator set.

Application Insights:

The power plant application segment accounted for the largest share of over 50% in 2017. The growing demand for gas turbines to generate electricity is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Generator control units are used in gas turbine power plants as they provide protection against electrical grid failure and facilitate automatic recovery from outages by maintaining reliable operations of equipment during emergencies.

The transportation segment is anticipated to register a significant CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing investments in renewable energy projects across various countries including China, India and Brazil among others which are likely to propel demand for generators at an industrial level.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of over 40% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for electricity and industrial automation. Increasing adoption of generator control units in emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan is also likely to drive regional market growth. Furthermore, rising investments by governments are anticipated to boost industry development across countries such as China and India which would subsequently propel product demand during the forecast period.

The European market was valued at USD X million in 2017 owing to high consumption levels coupled with growing application scope across industries including power generation.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for electricity due to population growth and industrialization
  • Government initiatives for energy conservation and promotion of renewable energy sources
  • Development of smart grid technology that enables two-way communication between the utility company and consumers
  • Rapid expansion of electric vehicle market as a result of increasing environmental awareness
  • Proliferation of microgrids, which can be used to provide power in isolated areas or during emergencies
