High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission is the optimal choice for moving power over long distances due to lower transmission line costs, decreased right of way, and lower power losses than for equivalent AC lines. The new innovative technology in converters has opened a new prospect in transmission, it encompasses in underground, offshore, voltage stabilization application. HVDC transmission technology enables efficient, bulk power transmission across long distances through direct current. It transmits 30 per cent more power than the conventional alternating current technology, strengthening existing networks while minimizing environmental impact. These applications accounted major surge in high voltage direct current transmission market.

The main application area for HVDC transmission is the interconnection between systems which cannot be interconnected by AC because of different operating frequencies or different frequency controls. This type of interconnection is mainly represented by back-to-back stations or long-distance transmissions when a large amount of power, produced by a hydropower plant, for instance, has to be transmitted by overhead line or by submarine cable.

Offshore wind farms is changing power industry landscape, wind power generation meets an increasing share of power demand across the globe. With increasing government regulations, rising need for integrated networks, and high onshore and offshore potential further boosted the power generation from the wind energy. Wind energy plays a crucial role in the production of power. It is estimated that the power generation from the wind energy will increase up to ten times in the span of 20 years.

The HVDC transmission market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.13% in the next five years (2014-2020). This report describes the market dynamics of market, which comprises of drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and burning issues. The major driving factors for market are the increasing demand for reduction of transmission losses in power systems, growth in offshore wind transmission infrastructure, and rising government mandates in HVDC power transmission systems. In this report, different technologies are included are line commutated converters, capacitor commuted converters and voltage source converters. The configuration segment includes back to back, monopolar, bipolar, and multi-terminal. The HVDC transmission component segment comprises of Thyristor, surge arrester, converter transformer, smoothing reactors, DC transmission circuit, harmonic filters, control and protection. The power rating market is categorized into below 500 MW, 501 MW – 1000 MW, 1001 MW – 1500 MW, 1501 MW - 2000 MW, above 2000 MW. Geographically, the HVDC transmission market is covered by North America, Europe, APAC, and Rest of the World.

Some of the major companies dominating the HVDC transmission market are ABB (Switzerland), Siemens (Germany), Alstom (France), General Electric (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France) and others. ABB (Switzerland) and Siemens (Germany) are the key players of power generation and transmission market and it is found that these companies covers more than 80% of the overall market share in the global HVDC market.

The figure below shows the continuous growth of the HVDC transmission market in the coming five years from 2014 to 2018.
