The global shunt reactor market was worth US$ 2.9 Billion in 2019. Shunt reactor is an equipment that is used to absorb reactive power in a power supply system. It is a compact device that compensates power in long high-voltage transmission lines and cable systems by transmitting energy directly to the power line. Its key function is to consume excess reactive energy generated by overhead lines under low load conditions and stabilize the system voltage. Shunt reactors are also employed to improve the stability and efficiency of energy transmission through variable rating in cases of slow load variation. They can be connected to the tertiary winding of three winding transformers or directly to the power line. They find extensive application across various industries due to their low maintenance requirement and operational costs and minimal fire hazard probabilities.
The growing energy demand is one of the key factors driving the market growth. There is an increasing need for efficient power systems to ensure uninterrupted supply of power. The demand for shunt reactor is also driven by the need for reduced losses in power transmissions, modern transmission and distribution (T&D) networks and their extensive utilization in different renewable energy systems. Additionally, growing investments in smart grid technologies are further contributing to the growth of the market. The application of shunt reactor is also associated with reduced carbon footprint and voltage jumps, thus contributing to their demand. Factors such as favorable government policies promoting the development of high voltage transmission systems and increasing focus on research and development (R&D) activities are further catalyzing the growth of the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global shunt reactor market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
