Black Start Generators Market

Market Insights on Black Start Generators covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Black Start Generators Market : Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031

Black Start Generators Market Overview

A black start is the process of restoring an electric power station or a part of an electric grid to operation without relying on the external electric power transmission network to recover from a total or partial shutdown. Black start generatorsare power generation units which provide initial power backup to power plants during a power blackout, without depending on any external electric source.

Black start generators pose as a viable solution offering reduced starting time of primary generator by providing power for auxiliaries which can further run the entire plant, machine drive and other power supply unit of a building, server room or modular unit.

The need of black start generators have increased in the wake of uninterrupted power supply in critical end use domains such as healthcare units undergoing surgical procedures, IT data server rooms for seamless transmission and reception of data packs, commercial power generation units.

Black Start Generators Market: Dynamics

The power transmission and distribution sector has been witnessing a spike in intermittent cut-offs in power supply involving scheduled load shedding to abrupt terminations for the consumers. Thisphenomenon is occurring particularly in developing and under developed countries facing a shortfall of existing power generation capacity against the overall demand of the consumers.

Subsequently, the defined circumstances are affecting the aforementioned critical sector operations as well as industrial productivity rate to a significant extent. To offset the overhead losses and enable seamless operations, black start generators are proving to as a viable solution for the end users such as oil & gas, manufacturing, healthcare and IT sectors, with continued increase in span of application.

The growth of black start generators can be also attributed with the inception of UPS module. The future scope of applications for black start generators are expected to arise from remote off-grid power bases such as micro-community centers and field military bases.

The possible restraints that may hinder the growth of black start generators market is from availability of alternate solutions such as battery enabled modular energy storage units which are gaining traction owing to the fact that the devices do not employ fossil fuel as in the case of black start generators and also proving to be cost-effective and environment management compliance device.

Moreover, low level awareness of black start generators coupled with high installation and maintenance costs for black start generatorsis also been responsible in preventing a robust penetration rate of the product in the consumer market.

However, with the product still being in its intermediate stages of growth, the energy domain and power generation equipment designing professionals are of the optimistic opinion of black start generators to achieve an amplified footprint in all regional markets spanning a wide array of industry verticals, healthcare, power generation and other critical care domains in the upcoming years.

This objective is also being addressed via continued cost –effective product innovation and development by the manufacturers of black start generators.

COVDI-19 crisis impact

The ongoing crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic has affected all industry verticals resulting in subdued capital investments, retardation of production rate and supply to end procurers. The power generation equipment industry is no exception to this effect and is understood to undertake a significant dent in the planned growth rate in the current fiscal.

With regards to the growth trend specific to black startup generators market, a downturn in growth is expected to have been observed in the 3 quarters of ongoing fiscal. The recovery of black start generators towards threshold growth rate is expected to incur over next 4-6 quarters which is critically dependent on end user sentiment for new sales and procurement provided the supporting rules and policies by the regional governments.

In terms of end use sector, industrial manufacturing segment is considered to be the major contributor to demand generation and subsequent growth of the black start generators market.

The supporting reason is from the fact that average generators are employed for industrial machine drives as well as co-generation plants with heavy power rating upto 3.2 MW which if interrupted can incur significant restoration time of power and thereby affect the production output rate as well as associated operating overheads in the interim.

Healthcare and IT sectors can act as value proposition for the market participants of black start generators provided the potential demand from each vertical and willingness by the stakeholders to invest in customized solutions such as modular design, long duration back up power supply.

The black start generators is offered to the end consumers via rental sales or direct procurement. The rental sales occupies a greater weightage of sales going by the periodic subscription cost as a preferred option by the end users.

Hence, the manufacturers of black start generators have been focusing on strong supply chain management mechanism involving tie-ups with prominent dealers and distributors having rich clientele base and relationship management. Additionally, aftersales service and technical support programs have been pursued by the OEMs in consolidating their brand footprint amongst the end users with advocating by the dealers and service providers.

Black Start Generators Market: Regional Outlook

Developing countries like India,China, ASEAN Countries, Brazil, Mexico, Czech Republic are identified to be prominent regional markets to create significant demand and growth in the global black start generators market.This is attributed to existing power generation deficits by existing commercial utility providers, increasing rate of industrialization, IT and healthcare services in these countries.

The developed countries in North America, Europe and Australia are also expected to foster a decent growth over the foreseen year owing to demand from new applications i.e. in military and remote power community centers for black start generators, whereasMiddle East & Africa market may also offer lucrative growth opportunities from mining industry.
