A key trend being observed in the South Africa diesel generator set market is the increasing adoption of hybrid generators. Hybrid DG sets have lower overall operating costs, as well as reduced dependency on a single fuel for power generation. Additionally, the frequent power blackouts in the country have led to crippling traffic delays, along with curtailed mining activity and lower factory outputs. In order to overcome these challenges, the adoption of DG sets is likely to increase in the country.
The South Africa diesel genset market is categorized into 5 kVA–75 KVA, 75 kVA–375 KVA, 375 kVA–750 KVA, and above 750 KVA, on the basis of power rating. Of these, the 5 kVA–75 KVA category is expected to account for the largest share throughout the forecast period (2020–2030). Diesel gensets with a power rating of 5 kVA–75 KVA are suitable for retail establishments, residential facilities, shops, telecom towers, offices, and small-scale industrial facilities.
The South Africa diesel genset market is also categorized into residential, commercial, and industrial, based on application. Among these, the industrial category is expected to account for a significant share during the forecast period as a result of the high demand for DG sets in the mining sector of the country. In order to provide a continuous power supply and enable uninterrupted production, the adoption of diesel gensets in the mining sector in the country is expected to grow during the forecast period.
The South Africa diesel generator set market is majorly advancing on account of the high demand for such equipment arising from the mining sector of the country. South Africa is one of the largest producers of gold, chromium, platinum, vanadium, and manganese. The revenue generated by the South African mining industry in the year ending June 30, 2020 grew by 4% to that compared to the previous year. DG sets play a critical role in the mining industry by providing an uninterrupted power supply for smooth operations at remote locations.
In recent years, the government of the country has implemented a strong focus on power generation through renewable sources of energy. The Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme aims to install renewable energy plants with a cumulative capacity of 17.8 Gigawatts (GW) in South Africa before 2030. With this, the government aims to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions, while minimizing the country's reliance on non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuel and coal. With a shift toward renewable energy, the market in the country is projected to witness restrained growth during the forecast period.
Some of the major companies operating in the diesel generator set market of the country are Algen Power Generation, The Generator King, Yanmar Holdings Co. Ltd., Genesal Energy, AKSA Power Generation SA (Pty) Ltd., Jubaili Bros, Generator Boys, Cummins Africa, PacB Power Solutions, Atlas Copco AB, and Multilec Generator Services.
