U.A.E. Diesel Generator Set Market Overview

A key trend being observed in the U.A.E. diesel generator set market is the setting up of new data centers in the country. In recent times, there has been a surge in investments by global multinational companies for the setting up of data centers in the U.A.E., primarily in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Additionally, the growing usage of artificial intelligence in the country is expected to further attract investments. This, in turn, is augmenting the demand for diesel gensets in these facilities to supply electricity in case of a power grid crash or power cut.

The U.A.E. diesel genset market is categorized into 5 kVA–75 KVA, 75 kVA–375 KVA, 375 kVA–750 KVA, and above 750 KVA, based on power rating. Among these, the 5 kVA–75 KVA category is projected to hold the largest share throughout the forecast period (2020–2030). This is primarily attributed to the high preference for these gensets in commercial buildings, including data centers, retail establishments, educational institutes, malls, and offices.

The U.A.E. diesel genset market is also categorized on the basis of application into residential, commercial, and industrial. Among these, the commercial category is expected to account for a significant share during the forecast period on account of the increase in DG set installations at malls and shopping complexes, restaurants, hotels, and other commercial establishments. Hence, with the increase in the requirement for a continuous power supply, the adoption of diesel gensets in the commercial sector is expected to grow in the U.A.E. during the forecast period.

U.A.E. Diesel Generator Set Market Dynamics


The U.A.E. serves as a hub for trading activities in the Middle East owing to its strategic location. Additionally, the country is a popular tourist destination, with a footfall of millions of people annually. Moreover, those traveling between the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions often use Dubai and Abu Dhabi as layovers. Owing to this, numerous hotels, malls, restaurants, and commercial complexes have come up in the country in recent years. In order to provide a continuous power supply at these facilities, the demand for diesel gensets has witnessed a surge, and with the construction of new hotels, the demand is expected to further rise. Such factors are expected to drive the U.A.E. diesel generator set market during the forecast period.


In recent years, crude oil prices have witnessed a decline, on account of which several oil & gas projected have been called off; moreover, investments in the sector have also become smaller. For instance, in April 2020, Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC) canceled two contracts, previously awarded to Petrofac Ltd., a subsidiary of Petrofac Emirates LLC and a joint venture of Petrofac and Sapura Energy Bhd., for the Dalma gas development project near Abu Dhabi. Owing to such factors, the diesel generator set market in the U.A.E. is likely to be ill-impacted to a certain extent during the forecast period.
