Power Rental Market: Outlook

Power rental, which is also referred to as providing power on hire, has massive benefits in comparison to power equipment purchase. Power generators on lease prove beneficial over purchased ones as former provide susceptibility in requirement of power ratings along with carrying low maintenance & deployment charges. Apart from this, power rental can be easily availed within a short notice and have low initial costs. Energy producing firms prefer getting power generators on lease due to lack of access to strong grid infrastructure, temporary power needs, and high cost on maintaining current power supply equipment.

Reportedly, power on rent is preferred by firms established in regions either having poor power grid infrastructure facility or whose grid infrastructure is in phase of development. For instance, Asian and Latin American countries prefer power rental. Additionally, mining sector is largest consumer of power rental. Power rental is preferred due to constant outage as a result of load shedding and need of extra power due to heavy power load.

Power Rental Market: Growth Drivers

Humungous requirement for electrification and incessant supply of electricity will boost global market trends. Apart from this, unexpected power failures and load shedding has resulted in massive need of power, thereby widening scope of power rental business. In addition to this, mining sector requires high power rating generator for carrying out digging operations and hence miners prefer power rental for fulfilling their daily but temporary electricity demand. Furthermore, power grid issues, natural disasters, and sudden failure of power producing device will pave a way for rise in use of power rentals. These abovementioned factors will contribute remarkably towards earnings of power rental industry.

Moreover, massive need for reliable power backup in industrial and commercial sectors will enhance use of power rental systems, thereby catalyzing market growth. Nonetheless, strict environmental legislations pertaining to GHG emissions & noise control can restrict expansion of power rental market.

Free Analysis

Power rental is referred as plant hire, which provides machinery, power equipment, and tools of all kinds and sizes for a short and long period of time to final users. Power on rent can deliver complete operating power packages as well as provide scalable components within large power station installations to various industrial applications. An extensive fleet of industrial rental power covers a broad range of applications in coal-fired, natural gas-fired, nuclear and cogeneration plants. Power rental services offer a quick and cost-effective response to planned and emergency outages for a limited period of time.

The power rental market is mainly driven by increasing power consumption, development of power infrastructure, and increasing construction & development across the globe. Furthermore, increasing demand for power from oil & gas industry is also a major driving force of the power rental market. However, the presence of stringent regulations coupled with rising environmental awareness may curb the market growth in the near future. Nonetheless, increasing demand for power in emerging economies is expected to open up new growth avenues for the power rental market in the years to come.
