Global HVDC Transmission Systems Market to Reach US$ 22.7 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Cable-based Transmission

April 24, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "HVDC Transmission Systems Market Report by Component (Converter Stations, Transmission Medium (Cables)), Transmission Type (Submarine HVDC Transmission System, HVDC Overhead Transmission System, HVDC Underground Transmission System), Technology (Capacitor Commutated Converter (CCC), Voltage Source Converter (VSC), Line Commutated Converter (LCC)), Project Type (Point-to-Point, Back-to-Back, Multi-terminal), Application (Bulk Power Transmission, Interconnecting Grids, Infeed Urban Areas), and Region 2024-2032," the global HVDC transmission systems market reached a value of US$ 11.1 Billion in 2023. HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) transmission systems are a type of electrical transmission system used to transmit large amounts of electrical power over long distances. They are an alternative to AC (Alternating Current) transmission systems and are often used to connect remote renewable energy sources to the grid or to interconnect different power systems. They use high voltage direct current to transmit power, rather than the alternating current used in traditional AC transmission systems. HVDC transmission systems have several advantages over traditional AC transmission systems as they can transmit power over longer distances with lower losses without being affected by reactive power and voltage instability. They are used in various applications, including connecting remote renewable energy sources to the grid, interconnecting power systems, and enhancing grid stability. HVDC transmission systems offer an efficient and reliable way to transmit large amounts of electrical power over long distances, making them an important technology for future energy transmission and distribution.

Global HVDC Transmission Systems Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for efficient and reliable energy transmission over long distances. In line with this, the heavy investments in renewable energy and growing demand for electricity are significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the rising need to upgrade aging power infrastructure and interconnect power grids across the globe is positively influencing the market. Apart from this, the key players are investing in R&D to develop advanced HVDC transmission systems that offer improved efficiency, reliability, and flexibility. Various initiatives by governments across several countries to promote renewable energy are creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the ability of these systems to transmit power over long distances and lower transmission losses as compared to traditional AC transmission systems are propelling its demand. Besides, the escalating demand for offshore wind energy projects and the emergence of advanced converter technologies such as VSC are bolstering the market. The growing demand for smart grids and energy storage systems and the increasing need for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is offering numerous opportunities for market expansion. The rapid adoption of electric vehicles and transportation systems and the rising demand for microgrids and distributed energy systems are driving the market further. Additionally, rapid digitalization and heavy investments in energy infrastructure projects by private and public sectors worldwide are projected to provide an impetus to the market. On account of the factors above, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 22.7 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.04% during 2024-2032.
