Global HVDC Transmission Systems Market


Global HVDC Transmission Systems Market Trends:

Growing Demand for Electricity

The growing population is inflating the electricity requirements, which is one of the key factors driving the HVDC transmission systems market demand. For instance, according to the United Nations, the population across the globe is anticipated to increase by nearly 2 billion in the coming 30 years and could reach 9.7 billion in 2050. Moreover, according to IEA, the demand for electricity across the world is anticipated to increase at a faster rate over the coming three years, growing at 3.4% annually through 2026. HVDC transmission systems are more efficient than traditional high voltage alternating current (HVAC) systems for transmitting electricity over long distances. This makes them ideal for transmitting power from remote power plants, such as hydroelectric or wind farms, to urban centers. As electricity demand grows, there is a need to expand and interconnect regional and national grids. HVDC transmission systems can help to facilitate grid expansion and interconnection by enabling the transmission of large amounts of electricity over long distances without significant losses. In many areas, data centers are a major factor contributing to the rise in electricity demand. For instance, according to IEA, Data centers may use more than one thousand terawatt-hours (TWh) of power in 2026. These factors are further adding to the HVDC transmission system market revenue.

Emergence of Submarine HVDC Transmission System

The emergence of submarine HVDC transmission systems represents a significant development in the field of electrical power transmission. Submarine HVDC transmission systems are used to transmit large amounts of electrical power underwater, typically over long distances, with high efficiency and reliability. The escalating focus on power trading between countries is propelling the demand for submarine electricity transmission. Moreover, offshore wind platforms also use the HVDC undersea power transmission system to send power to the coast. For instance, according to the Global Wind Energy Council, 64 GW of offshore wind was generated globally in 2022, which grew at a pace of 14% annually over the previous year.

Rising Demand for Renewable sources

As countries and regions strive to reduce their carbon footprints and focus on transitioning towards more sustainable energy sources, there has been a significant increase in the development of offshore renewable energy projects, such as offshore wind farms. Submarine HVDC transmission systems play a crucial role in these projects by enabling the efficient transmission of electricity generated offshore to onshore locations where it is needed. Also, there has been a shift towards using clean, emission-free energy sources, such as HVDC systems for electricity transmission. Additionally, new projects are being approved worldwide for the transmission of renewable energy by using HVDC power supplies. Power consumption has increased significantly in the commercial, industrial, and residential domains. Besides this, the widespread adoption of high-voltage DC transmissions in grid stability and renewable energy systems, owing to their exceptional controllability and compatibility, is also augmenting the global market. For instance, TenneT granted McDermott International the largest-ever renewable energy contract in February 2022 for the 980 MW high-voltage direct current BorWin6 project. The project involved creating, producing, setting up, and commissioning an HVDC offshore converter platform on the North Sea Cluster 7 platform in Germany.
