Transforming Substation Infrastructure A Comprehensive Analysis of the Digital Substation Market

Market overview

The Digital Substation Market is expected to register -7.5% CAGR during the forecast period. Industrial development worldwide is improving the growth rate of the market. The growing digitalization and improvement in infrastructure in smart cities are the main reason for the market growth.

High maintenance and investment cost associated with setting up the digital technologies create challenges for the market to overcome. Rising environmental concerns provide ample opportunities for market growth.

As a result of the pandemic effect, most of the supply chains slowed down, and the economy of several industries and regions also declined. The manufacturing units got closed due to the less number of workers.

In contrast, during the lockdown period, the market attained growth due to developing electricity consumption, and economics improved the market size.

Key Players:

  • ABB Ltd. (Switzerland)
  • Siemens AG (Germany)
  • General Electric Company (U.S.)
  • Schneider Electric (France)
  • Honeywell International Inc. (U.S.)
  • Cisco Systems Inc. (U.S.)
  • Eaton Corporation plc (Ireland)
  • Emerson Electric Co. (U.S.)
  • NR Electric Co. Ltd. (China)

Market segmentation

The Digital Substation Market is segregated by module, voltage, type and industry. The market is bifurcated into SCADA, fibre optics communication network and hardware. The hardware segment is expected to register high growth till 2023. The hardware segments consist of protective devices, bus bars, transformers and interfacing units.

Transformers are a prominent part of the market as they are one of the primary components installed in the substation. Due to the extensive use of the digital substation, the hardware component holds the largest growth rate. The type segment is divided into distribution substation and transmission substation. In 2016, the distribution substation dominated the market as the segment operates at low voltage and passes the electric energy directly to the residential and industrial sectors.

The distribution segment’s growth is due to the growing urbanization and industrialization, and the market is getting boosted.

Based on the voltage, the market is classified into up to 220 kV, 220–550 kV, and above 550 kV. In 2016, the 550 VK held high growth of the digital substation market. And in the next five years, it is estimated to be the largest growing voltage. The segment is sustainable in all industrial applications.

The industry variables are gas and transportation, utility, mining and metal. The utility market held the largest market share in 2016. It is one of the highest segments due to the digital substation and the high demand and supply gap in energy in most developed areas. The growth of this segment is due to the renewable energy sources like solar, wind and hydro for the consumer’s demand.

Regional analysis

Smart grid technology has been studied in five major regions: the middle east and Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. North America is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The growth will occur mainly due to the growing adoption of the digital substation, and the region also has well-established market players. Asia pacific is also contributing to the market due to the growing demand for energy to support the local manufacturing units. Other regions are also growing and will showcase growth in the forecast period.
