Impact of Covid-19 on the India Diesel Generator Market

The advent of Covid-19 in 2020 had a decelerating effect on most industries across India, and the diesel generator market was no exception. With the imposition of stringent movement restrictions & frequent lockdowns by the government to curb the spread of this dreadful disease, the leading players in the market witnessed several unprecedented challenges associated with the production & distribution of diesel generators amidst the crisis.

As the government suspended most operations like construction, manufacturing, hotels & hospitality, among others, the demand for diesel generators reduced dramatically and caused massive financial losses to the market players. Besides, manufacturers also faced challenges like disruptions in the supply chain for raw materials, delivery delays, unavailability of labor, shut down of manufacturing units, and increased demand & supply gaps.

However, the demand for diesel generators escalated swiftly across the healthcare sector since it was under massive pressure to accommodate the rising Covid-19 patients, which, in turn, induced a decent hike in the market growth amidst the crisis. Moreover, since the pandemic & government restrictions compelled the public to adopt work from home policies, the leading players in the market witnessed an escalating demand for diesel generators across the residential sector to meet the burgeoning energy consumption requirements for running several appliances & performing day-to-day work with an uninterrupted energy flow.
