Power rental market expected to reach $2.0 billion by 2025

Press Release

A new analysis by Verify Markets shows the North American Power Rental Market  was valued at $1.45 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach revenues over $2.0 billion by 2025. The North American Power Rental Market is mature and highly fragmented, although it is going through a process of consolidation where the large national rental companies are acquiring regional competitors.

Economic growth has been on the of the main drivers of the market. As the economy and businesses grow, the demand of energy equipment increases. Companies may choose to rent additional power and related solutions rather than lose productivity. However, this driver is expected to diminish its impact on the market during the forecast period as it is predicted that the U.S. economy will grow at a slower rate from 2020.

Another stimulus for the market is the urbanization growth and the increase in infrastructure spending. The increasing pace of urbanization and the resulting expansion of city limits is pushing the demand for residential and commercial construction activities. The power rental market is directly affected by the level of economic activity in the construction industry.

Despite the market potential, rental companies are deterred by stringent environmental regulations, specifically EPA Tier 4 Final implementation in the United States. The increased requirement for manufacturing companies to alter the design of the equipment has subsequently led to an increase in cost of the generator unit. Tier 4 I diesel generator prices can be 30.0 to 50.0 percent higher than a Tier 2 or 3 generators. Power rental companies are trying to maintain their existing fleet or buy used equipment as long as possible in order to avoid the higher cost of the Tier 4 certified generators. Companies who have acquired new equipment before the Tier 4 Final stage was implemented are able to maintain their input costs and are more price-competitive. This restraint is expected to reduce its impact during the next five years, as engine manufacturers are able to make Tier 4 engines in mass quantities, increasing availability. In addition, as emission control technology improves, it is expected that generators will become more serviceable, reducing high initial and operating and maintenance costs.

The North American Power Rental Market report has been segmented by fuel, application, power output, and end user. Main customers include oil & gas, utilities, industrial, and construction. Lower oil & gas prices have affected investment in exploration and extraction, decreasing the share of the oil & gas segment in the power rental industry. This sector represented 21.0 percent of the total market during 2018. However, the segment is expected to increase its share of the market by the end of the forecast period as projected increases of oil & gas prices will encourage near-term levels of exploration, development, and production activity, and is likely to increase business activity. The utility segment is also projected to increase; as utilities incorporate more renewable energy sources to their generation mix, demand is expected to increase for more power rental to provide grid stability and reliability.
