BOULDER, Colo.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for dual-fuel generator sets (DFGSs) for commodity extraction, commercial and industrial (C&I), and utility applications, providing an analysis of key market and technology developments, with global market forecasts for capacity and revenue through 2025.
“Thanks to cheap natural gas, dual-fuel genset adoption surged with the North American oil & gas boom”
Despite major slowdown since 2014 with the fall of diesel prices and oil & gas (O&G) production, DFGSs are positioned to take a growing share of the global generator set (genset) market. Industry players now have the opportunity to capture anticipatory market share, as less capitalized participants may close up shop or be purchased given the current market conditions. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, the global market for DFGS installations and retrofits is expected to grow from nearly 1.1 GW in 2016 to more than 2.0 gigawatts (GW) annually by 2025.
“Thanks to cheap natural gas, dual-fuel genset adoption surged with the North American oil & gas boom,” says Adam Forni, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “Growth is now spreading into more segments and geographies, thanks to the lowered emissions, fuel redundancy, and cost savings offered by these products.”
Customers in developed countries are embracing DFGS technology to cut fuel costs or limit emissions, while demand in the developing world is often driven by volatility in the price or supply of fuel, according to the report. Of all the major world regions, North America is expected to add the most capacity during the decade with 4.2 GW.
