Power Rental Market: Global Trends & Forecasts 2012-2017

Power rental market to hit global revenue of $17 billion by 2017

The rental business of the power equipment market has received a substantial boost in recent years. Rental power market suffered setback in 2008 due to economic crisis as major share of revenues are from Europe and North America markets. However, new potential markets opened and recovery of mature markets boosted revenues. Power rental market which is estimated to have $6.4 billion revenue in 2011 is forecasted to grow from $7.8 billion in 2012 to $17 billion in 2017. During 2011 - 2016 the market will experience 17% CAGR primarily due to economical growth of developing countries where power demands will outpace the permanent power capacities.

Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa region markets are expected to increase substantially due to load shedding, power shortages, and unreliable grid stability.

At present, North America is the largest geographical market followed by Middle East and then Asia Pacific. Being the fastest growing market, Middle East will hold the largest market share by 2017 falling behind the North America. In terms of end user industry, utilities account for maximum share of global power rental revenue. Oil & gas industry ranks second followed by construction industry.

APR Energy LLC. is the second largest player headquartered in U.S. Both, Aggreko and APR Energy are the global players and hold a good share of power rental market. The major portion of their revenues comes from temporary power projects. These projects are built and operated by power rental companies and generated electricity is sold to the client.
