Factors Governing Power Rental Market

There has been a rapid increase in the demand for power from developing nations, such as China, India, South Korea, Brazil, Turkey, Thailand, and Qatar. These countries are undergoing technological advancements, along with increasing foreign investments in the construction sector, owing to which the demand for rented power is likely to rise. In addition to this, several leading North American and European companies are establishing their footprint in the power rental market in these countries, owing to their potential growth in the coming years. For instance, in January 2018, Aggreko PLC announced a joint venture, Shanghai Yude Aggreko Energy Equipment Rental Co. Ltd., with China-based power rental company Shanghai Yude, to expand its business in the country with a trusted local partner.

Outdated permanent power plants, which are inefficient in operations, end up causing environmental pollution. Governments across the globe are implementing stringent regulations for the shutdown of outdated power plants, thereby impacting the environment somewhat positively. While these power plants are inactive, they require power on rent for the redevelopment process. Therefore, with the stringency of regulations and shutting down and redevelopment of power plants, the power rental market holds immense potential for growth in the years to come.
