The report, now available on ASDReports, recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global genset battery market: Cummins, Eaton, EnerSys, Exide Industries, and Leoch International.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Amara Raja Batteries, Generac Holdings, and Kohler.
Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “A key trend which is boosting market growth is the increase in power generation capacity. Countries worldwide are in the process of increasing their power generation capacity to reduce their energy dependence and overcome issues related to power blackouts. Many end-users are shifting toward alternative energy forms such as renewable-based installations rather than depending on gensets. Solar PV, wind energy, and other forms of renewable energy are gaining popularity as they prove to be cost-effective solutions compared to diesel gensets. This trend is observed primarily in EMEA and APAC countries, as they are focusing more on the development of alternate sources of energy.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the effectiveness of genset batteries. One of the key performance attributes required by any battery is high power density. Genset batteries provide high power density that enables them to supply power to large diesel engines at low temperatures by occupying the least space. Another notable feature of genset batteries is their long service life that makes them capable of lasting for several years under continuous trickle charge and be able to fire up the genset whenever required. In addition, genset batteries have quick recharge capability, which is necessary in case of installations where there are frequent power outages.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the hazardous nature NiCd. The major drawback in NiCd batteries is their high self-discharge rate. For instance, large battery systems can lead to higher float charge energy costs.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
