Global Substation Automation Market to Grow at 5.3% During 2024-2032, Impelled by Increasing Establishment of Smart Grids

December 20, 2021 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Substation Automation Market Report by Module Type (Intelligent Electronic Devices, Communication Networks, SCADA Systems), Component (Hardware, Software, Services), Communication Channel (Ethernet, Copper Wire Communication, Power Line Communication, Optical Fiber Communication, and Others), Substation Type (Transmission, Distribution), Installation Type (New Installation, Retrofit Installation), End-Use Industry (Utility, Transportation, Metals & Mining, Oil and Gas, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global substation automation market reached a value of US$ 47.6 Billion in 2023. Substation automation is the utilization of the data acquired from intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) to transmit and control commands from remote users. Substation automation systems (SAS) are a collection of software and hardware components that can remotely and locally maintain an electrical system. These systems offer substation monitoring and control solution with communication, and protection capabilities. They also automate some error-prone, repetitive, and tedious activities to increase the overall productivity and efficiency of the grid. Substation automation solutions are programed with local and global alarm and caution systems to detect fault location for equipment and distribution systems diagnostics. The digitizing of substations helps to save expenses and enhance the safety of primary equipment through sensors.

Global Substation Automation Market Trends:

A significant rise in the need for retrofitting existing substations, and a large-scale increase in investments for the establishment of smart grid infrastructure are some of the key factors that are primarily influencing the growth of the global substation automation market. The escalating demand for efficient electricity transmission with reduced management and operational costs of utilities is further driving the market growth. Other than this, the large-scale integration of renewable energy systems and emergence of improved security systems is aiding in the establishment of smart grids across the globe. Moreover, rapid technological advancements and rising investments in the research and development (R&D) activities are some of the other factors that are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during 2024-2032.
