Global Backup Power Market – Restrain

High cost of investment and maintenance to limit the market growth

Gasoline and diesel-based generators require maintenance after 100-200 uses and need frequent oil changes. Moreover, these generators are considerably loud, due to which they require installation of mufflers. This further adds into the initial costs of generators. Along with this, the cleaning cost of these machines again contributes to the overall high cost. Thus, this factor is expected to hamper growth of the global backup power market over the forecast period.
