Electric generators are selling like hot cake these days in Nigeria. Sales of Generators are on the increase because they are fast becoming essential commodities in Nigeria. This rise in demand for power generators is a direct consequence of epileptic power supply Nigeria. Presently Nigeria boasts of a power generation capacity of about 4,000Mw, which is a far cry from the estimated national demand of over 40 000Mw.
Despite all the investment the Nigerian government claims it is making about in the power sector, the market for power generators is expected to grow to 151.16 billion Naira ($950.7 Million) in 2020 from N71.55 billion ($450 million) according to research data published (2013) by global research firm, GBI Research.
So, if you are one of those who think the days of generators are numbered in this economy or that your current generator will be your last, you better think twice and open a generator fund for financing your next generator. This page shows resources on generators.
The wide gap between power supply and demand means that lucky Nigerians settle for an average of less than 5 hours of power supply per day. This means Nigerians have to look for alternatives to fill the gap. One such alternative are electricity generators.
This alternative has become popular because of the proliferation of cheap electric generators from Asia mostly China. The Tiger generator seems to be everywhere and is a very popular low power electric power generator brand (less than 1 000w) in Nigeria.
Elemax, Honda, Thermocool, Elepaq, Lutian, Sumec Firman, and Hyundai brands of electricity generators are also very popular in Nigeria for low power applications for homes and small businesses.
For medium and high power applications as required by industries and large commercial enterprises, petrol and diesel generators like Cummins, and Perkins are very popular.
