Black start generators are the perfect solution to kick start power plants in case of a black out. These generators reduce starting time of primary generator in power plants by providing power for auxiliaries such as boiler feed pump, induced draft fan, forced draft fan, and circulating water pumps among others which can further run the entire power plant. Factors driving the black start generator market include growth of the power generation sector, mainly thermal and nuclear power plants and lack of power distribution infrastructure.

The global black start generator market stood at USD 1.20 Billion in 2015, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2016 to 2021.

The black start generator market is segmented based on its type, power rating, industry and region. The years considered for the study are:

  • Base Year – 2015
  • Estimated Year – 2016
  • Projected Year – 2021
  • Forecast Period – 2016 to 2021

For company profiles in the report, 2015 has been considered. Where information is unavailable for the base year, the prior year has been considered.

The global black start generator market is expected to reach USD 1.50 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2016 to 2021. The growth is attributed to construction of thermal, nuclear, and hydro power plants and growth of manufacturing industries across the globe.

The black start generator’s prime application is in the power generation sector to provide the initial power for restarting the power plant during a blackout. However, over the years, black start generators witnessed tremendous demand from the oil & gas, manufacturing, and even the healthcare and IT sectors, thereby increasing its scope of application. The power sector is still the major contributor to the black start generator market. Construction of new power plants across globe to meet the increasing demand for power is the major driving factor for the black start generator market.

Diesel type generators are estimated to dominate the black start generator market based on type. The demand for diesel generators is fueled by its quick response time, easy fuel sourcing and storage, and longer running life. In spite of being lower in cost, the gas and hybrid generator market for black start is highly restricted due to difficulty is fuel sourcing and shorter running life.

Asia-Pacific leads in terms of growth rate as well as market size from 2016 to 2021. High growth of power generation and IT & telecom sectors and new and proactive policy reforms to support growth of manufacturing sector in India and China are the major factors driving the market in this region. China is estimated to be the largest market growing at decent rate during 2016–2021, whereas India is likely to be the highest growing market in the region with highest growth rate from 2016 to 2021.

Black Start Generator Market

Black start generators require regular maintenance and testing to ensure they function during a blackout. This leads high operation and maintenance costs which are a major restraining factor for the black start generator market and motivates consumers to go for alternatives. Many power companies are providing black start service to commercial and industrial users as an alternative to installing black start generators. This service is becoming popular in developed regions and is another factor which is likely to restrain the growth of the black start generator market.

Some of the leading players in the black start generator market include GE (U.S.), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (Japan), Caterpillar Inc. (U.S.), MTU Onsite Energy (Germany), and Cummins Inc. (U.S.). Contracts and Agreements was the most adopted strategy followed by black start generator market players.
