A flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) is a technology used in power transmission systems to enhance their efficiency and control the flow of electricity. These devices are used to improve power transfer capability, reduce power losses, and improve the overall stability and reliability of the grid. It includes the use of power electronics and advanced control systems, which enable the real-time control of voltage, current, and reactive power on the transmission line. This helps to regulate power flow, stabilize the grid, and mitigate problems such as voltage instability and grid oscillations. They can also be applied in a variety of transmission systems, including high-voltage direct current (HVDC) systems, alternating current (AC) transmission lines, and power transformers. In addition, these devices can be used to integrate renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power into the grid. Besides this, FACTS technology offers various benefits such as improved power quality, increased power transfer capability, reduced transmission losses, and enhanced grid stability and reliability. As a result, it is increasingly adopted in the power and energy industry.

Global Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Market

Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for electricity across the globe, which has resulted in the development of new power infrastructure and transmission lines. FACTS technology enables utilities to increase power transfer capacity and improve grid reliability, which makes it a suitable option for meeting the growing electricity demand. In addition, the increasing government expenditure to build smart grids due to the aging power grid infrastructure in many countries represents another major growth-inducing factor. FACTS systems can help upgrade the existing grid by improving its stability, reducing power losses, and enhancing the overall efficiency of the system. Besides this, the increasing adoption of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power due to the growing environmental concerns has escalated the demand for FACTS technology that can help to mitigate the intermittent nature of renewable energy by regulating power flow and improving grid stability. This, coupled with the surging need for controllability of power systems in oil and gas, railways, and electric utility industries, is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the growing mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and collaboration among the leading market players to strengthen their foothold is also creating a favorable market outlook across the globe.
