Generator Control Units Market By Product Type (Digital GCU, Analog GCU), End-use Application (Power Plants, Industrial Manufacturing, Aircraft And Transportation, Residential, Commercial) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

1.   Market Excerpt

2.   Rising demand for power generators to provide uninterrupted power supply and replacement of digital technology with analog are driving the growth of generator control units

The global generators control units market is expected to witness considerable growth due to increasing demand for uninterrupted power supply particularly during down-time. Power outage results into operational as well as monetary losses for organizations. It has been observed that one hour of power shutdown results for loss of US$ 100,000 in large size organizations. The demand for generators is particularly high in establishments such as industrial and commercial facilities as these zones are highly dependent on seamless power supply. Perpetual power outages due to constrained power generation and voltage fluctuations impacting business operations are influencing swift commercial installation of generators as a reliable source of power backup. This is increasing the demand for generator control units particularly in industrial and commercial sectors. In addition, continuous development in digital generator control technology for efficient voltage regulation and protection execution is also expected to be the major driving factor for GCUs. Increasing number of commercial and industrial construction projects along with rising number of power plants expected to increase the demand for generator control units globally. The global market for generator control units is expected to cross US$ 850.0 Mn by 2026 at a CAGR of 4.75% throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Digital generator control units DGCU is expected to be the promising product category in the near future.

Traditional analog generator control units have limitation to use directly with new high voltage variable frequency systems. This is increasing the demand for digital generator control units which can be effectively used in high voltage variable frequency applications. In addition to this, digital GCU have several other advantages which is increasing its deployment over analog units. The algorithm of digital generator control units is designed with microprocessors in order to avoid aging of devices and the problem of temperature influences. These units also improves stability of the controller. Moreover, digital generator control unit enables to modify control parameters and offers better control accuracy under variable conditions.
