The HVDC transmission market was valued at USD 6.79 Billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 11.52 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.31% during the forecast period. Many countries are focusing on innovations and expansions in the existing projects. This factor would increase the demand for HVDC transmission systems in the coming years.

The HVDC transmission market has been segmented on the basis of technology into capacitor commutated converter (CCC), voltage sourced converter (VSC), line commutate converter (LCC), and ultra-high voltage direct current (UHVDC). The market for VSC technology is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. VSC, along with the offshore platform size, is a smaller and less expensive solution for HVDC transmission systems. Moreover, VSC requires lesser filters than LCC, thereby reducing the size of the system. Due to these advantages, the market for VSC technology is expected to grow faster than that of the LCC technology.

The HVDC transmission market has been segmented on the basis of project type, which includes point-to-point transmission, back-to-back stations, and multi-terminal systems. The European countries’ increasing focus on power generation from wind energy would further increase the market share for the multi-terminal system.

Moreover, the market is segmented on the basis of application into underground power transmission, asynchronous grid interconnection, and offshore power transmission. Among all the applications, offshore power transmission is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing demand for power and efficient power supply is the main reason behind the growth of the market for offshore power transmission. The high power transmission from offshore plants to the load centers needs an efficient and reliable system. The connecting wind farms have also been a paramount factor driving the adoption of HVDC transmission systems at offshore plants located distantly and which generate a high voltage constantly. Furthermore, the market is segmented on the basis of power rating, which includes below 500 MW, 5001–1000 MW, 1001–1500 MW, 1501–2000 MW, and above 2001 MW.

HVDC Transmission Market

On the basis of geography, the HVDC transmission market has been segmented into the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). The HVDC transmission market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The market growth can be attributed to several initiatives by the governments in APAC. Moreover, the presence of major players in the HVDC transmission ecosystem results in the increasing adoption of HVDC transmission systems in APAC. However, high initial cost of grid installation is a major restraint for the HVDC transmission market.

Key players in this market focus on organic strategy such as product launches and expansions to increase their revenue. In April 2017, ABB Ltd.  (Switzerland)  upgraded its high-voltage direct current (HVDC) light technology. The next level of the company’s HVDC light would help in doubling the power capacity to 3,000 megawatts (MW). Moreover, the design enhancements would bring a major change in the compactness of the transmission system, with a potential to deliver 350 percent more power per square meter of space used.
