Generac Holdings (GNRC) (NYSE:GNRC) is a designer and manufacturer of standby generators for residential, industrial, and commercial market. The generators are fueled by natural gas, liquid propane, gasoline, diesel, and combinations of two. Hospitals have used these standby generators, but this product is relatively new in the residential and commercial market. Based on Frost & Sullivan reports, the generator market is worth $3.3 billion in 2008 for USA and Canada, while the generator market is worth $11 billion globally. [1]

Regulator and legislation changes can fuel the growth of the standby generators market. New laws may be passed to require some industrial and small-commercial segments to have standby generators. Furthermore, for environmental reasons, the diesel-fueled standby generators may be required to be replaced by natural gas generators to limit diesel emissions. [1]
