Substation Automation Market Demand Is Expected To Flourish At A CAGR Of 6.7% From 2022-2032

The global substation automation market is expected to be valued at US$ 29.12 Billion in 2022, as per a recently published Future Market Insights report. With the increasing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles, coupled with the rising use of digital technology to improve grid efficiency in smart cities, overall demand for substation automation is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% between 2022 and 2032, totaling around US$ 55.69 Billion by 2032.

The increasing demand for efficient transmission of electricity, reduced operations and management costs for utilities, and ultimately lower power costs for consumers drive the growth of smart grids in the market. Also, the increasing integration of large-scale renewable energy systems and improved security among others are fueling the growth of smart grids in substation automation.

Smart grid communication technology provides predictive data and recommendations to the utilities, their suppliers, and their customers on how best to manage power. Moreover, smart grids are deploying by applying modern technologies in substations and power networks.

Request Sample:

To reach the smart grid, one needs complete information from substations in the transmission network to analyze and manage it. The trends towards upgrading and retrofitting the old conventional substations besides new modern substations are boosting the market growth.

Attributed to the need for upgradation and replacing an aging energy infrastructure, the smart grid is one of the best solutions used in substation automation as it allows for automatic rerouting when equipment fails or outages occur and minimize outages and minimize the effects. These Grid technologies are expected to drive the market growth for substation automation further.
