Global Shunt Reactor Market to Reach US$ 3.2 Billion by 2027, Stimulated by Escalating Demand for Electricity

Published on May 05, 2020

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Shunt Reactor Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,the global shunt reactor market reached a value of US$ 2.6 Billion in 2021. A shunt reactor is an electronic device that absorbs excess reactive power that is generated by overhead lines under low-load conditions. This assists in stabilizing the voltage and increasing the overall efficiency of the power supply system. A shunt reactor can be directly connected to the power line or a tertiary winding of a three-winding transformer. It is often switched in and out on an everyday basis, keeping into consideration the load situation in the system. As it requires low maintenance and operating costs, it is widely utilized in different sectors.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Shunt Reactor Market Trends:

The market is currently experiencing stable growth on account of the continually escalating demand for energy across the globe. This can be accredited to rapid urbanization, the growing global population and boosting sales of consumer electronics. Besides this, the increasing need for efficient power systems to ensure an uninterrupted supply of power is strengthening the shunt reactor market growth. Moreover, as the utilization of shunt reactors is associated with reduced carbon footprint and voltage jumps, their demand is rising worldwide. Furthermore, governing agencies in numerous countries are financing the upgradation, as well as setting up of new transmission and distribution networks.
