How many generators sold per year worldwide? and how many of them are for residential and industrial use?
i want to know which segment sales more.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Difficult to gather sales figures for this particular segment of the industry as generator companies do not give out sales figures. The New York Times in 2013 reported from a study done that more than a million are sold per year with 90 percent of those for home use:

One of the latest reports that I was able to locate in terms of production can be found here:

I hope that some of this information can be helpful as I will go ahead and opt-out for other experts to possibly assist.
