Generators are a primary source of electricity for most mechanical and electrical circuits. Their core function is to convert the given input energy into energy, usually in the form electricity. The input can be heat, friction, air or fluid flow, or even hand cranks. The size of a generator depends on the type of input and the desired output. These can include the massive water turbines used in hydroelectric power plants or simple dynamos connected to the wheels of a car. Generators are an indispensable component in modern industry due to the massive dependence on electricity. There are several types of generators, including signal generators, power engines, motor-generator sets, gas generators, and various types of wearable generators. Generators are also commonly divided into groups based on their output power rating, usually into the segments of under 100 kVA, 100 to 350 kVA, 350 to 1,000 kVA, and generators above 1,000 kVA.

Common types of fuels used in generators include gas, diesel, and petroleum. Key application segments for generators depend on the type of duel being used. For instance, diesel generators are more commonly used in IT or telecom industries, the oil and gas sector, or the healthcare sector, primarily due to the lower cost of these generators and their spare parts. Manufactures of generators need to be wary of several factors that are currently influencing the global markets, such as the restraints on using fossil fuels, the availability of raw materials for manufacture of components or spare parts, and the overall dependence of a region on particular fuel types.
