SUMMARY: Gen-set sales in Q2 2019 rose 4.3% from Q1 2019, due to increases in commercial demand and demand for standbys that are typical for Q2 as construction season and hurricane season begin. Broken out by kW range, sales increases were on the lower end of normal in the 51-100kW and 101-300kW ranges, but overall sales were still driven by typical growth in the 101kW-1MW ranges, typical of the construction season.Read More›
SUMMARY: Gen-set sales in Q1 2019 declined 13.6% from Q4 2018, largely due to an unusually steep drop in sales of portable gen-sets. Sales were anemic between 21kW and 500kW and declined in the 501-1000kW and 1001-2000kW ranges by more than any other Q1 in the last five years.Read More›
SUMMARY: Gen-set sales in North America continued to grow in Q4 2018, with dealers reporting an overall unit sales increase of 6.7% over Q3 2018, largely due to a continued strong demand level for standby units by private consumers.Read More›
SUMMARY: Gen-set sales in North America climbed 6% in Q3 2018 over Q2 2018, with the focus switching from larger industrial standby’s and construction site power generation earlier in the year to residential standby sales as part of winter-preparedness.Read More›
SUMMARY: Gen-set sales climbed 5% over Q1 2018 levels in anticipation of the camping season and end of fiscal year for many government and industrial consumers. While fewer dealers commented on specific-storm related residential demand this quarter, the 5% growth this quarter does seem to indicate that last year’s hurricanes may have raised the gen-set market up to a new normal, especially when compared to the 1.8% growth reported in Q2 of 2017.Read More›
SUMMARY: Gen-set sales continued the growth trend in Q1 2018 with a 2% increase over Q4 2017 levels. We continue to see increased demand for residential standby after last year’s severe weather season as well as the ramp-up towards the construction and camping seasons.Read More›
SUMMARY: North American Gen-set sales continued with strong growth in the lower kW ranges in Q4 2017 with overall unit sales up 12.9% over Q3 2017. The gains were driven by ongoing demand caused by severe hurricanes, as well as optimism about the economy.Read More›
