Alternators are devices that convert any kind of mechanical energy from a prime mover into alternating electric power (AC current) at a specific voltage and frequency. Since their first introduction, alternators have become an essential part of modern power generation systems. The rising demand for power for a variety of applications has resulted in an increase in the penetration of alternators. Applications such as automotive, industrial manufacturing and processing, power plants, and many others make extensive use of alternators in order to fulfill their power requirements. Alternators are used extensively in power generation plants using non-conventional energy sources.

The post-recession revival of the automotive industry is one of the major factors contributing to the rise in demand for alternators. Every modern on-road vehicle is equipped with an alternator in order to provide AC electricity to different modules of the vehicle. With the consistent rise in the automotive industry, the demand for alternators is also expected to demonstrate considerable growth during the forecast period. Similarly, perpetually rising power consumption across applications such as marine, telecommunication towers, commercial, and residential infrastructures is another prominent factor promoting the alternator market. In addition, alternators are used for locomotive traction motors, marine applications, and mining applications. Growing heavy industries and a consistent rise in demand for AC power supplies are expected to continue boosting the overall alternator market in the following years.

The global alternator market is segmented, based on voltage capacity, into the following categories:

  • (0-1000V) Low Voltage
  • Medium Voltage (1000–5000 V)
  • High Voltage (5000 V or higher)

As of 2016, the low voltage segment (ranging from 0 to 1000 volts) is the largest segment, in terms of revenue, of the overall alternator market worldwide. Low-voltage alternators are extensively used in automobiles and small and medium-capacity standby power equipment. With the consistent rise in automobile consumption around the world, demand for low-voltage alternators is expected to rise at a rapid pace. In addition, increasing power consumption and the growing trend of using standby power equipment such as portable generators are also aiding the low-voltage alternator segment in maintaining its dominance in the overall alternator market.

As of 2016, the high-voltage alternator segment trails the low-voltage alternator segment in terms of revenue. High-voltage alternators ranging from 5000 volts and above are used in a variety of high-voltage applications, such as marine, railway locomotives, high-power generation equipment, and mining. High-voltage alternators are also used in non-conventional energy generation stations, including wind turbines, hydroelectric power plants, and tidal energy power stations. The growing inclination toward non-conventional power sources is generating major demand for high-voltage alternators. Consequently, the high-voltage alternator market is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period.

The global alternator market is segmented, based on its applications, into the following categories:

  • Automotive
  • Industrial Manufacturing and Processing
  • Power Plant
  • Marine
  • Standby Power
  • Others

As of 2016, the automotive segment dominated the overall alternator market. Alternators are extensively used in automobiles for power generation so as to run the related electronic modules. They derive power from the engine and generate the energy to charge the battery and supply the electric power necessary for the vehicle's utilities. With the rise in the number of electronic modules in modern-day automobiles, the power requirement of automobiles has also increased significantly. In addition, consistent growth in the automotive sector, especially in the Asia Pacific region, has increased the penetration of automotive alternators. In the following years, the automotive segment is estimated to retain its dominant position in the overall market.

In terms of revenue, the standby power segment trails the automotive application segment. The segment's growth is primarily driven by the increasing installation of standby power equipment and generators across commercial and industrial sectors. Alternators are extensively used in such equipment to convert mechanical motion into AC power. In addition, standby power equipment is used to supply continuous power to telecommunication towers. Due to its expanding application area, the segment would demonstrate promising growth in the following years.
