The HVDC market is estimated to reach USD 10.77 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2022. In terms of power capacity, the market is estimated to reach 85.79 GW by 2022, at a CAGR of 9.8% between 2016 and 2022. The base year considered for study is 2015 and the forecast period considered is between 2016 and 2022. This report provides a detailed analysis of the market based on project type, component, technology, application, and region. It has been estimated that the multi-terminal project type would hold a large share of the HVDC transmission market during the forecast period. The HVDC transmission market, by application, includes underground power transmission, asynchronous grid interconnection, and offshore power transmission. The adoption of offshore power generation is expected to increase in the coming years since the demand for transmitting reliable and clean energy over long distances is increasing; the market for offshore power generation is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2016 and 2022.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the HVDC transmission market begins with obtaining data on key vendor revenues and power generation capacity through secondary research. The vendor offerings have also been taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The top-down procedure has been employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global HVDC transmission market from the average power generated (in GW) worldwide and the average project price of HVDC in USD/GW. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market has been split into several segments and subsegments, which are then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. This data triangulation and market breakdown procedures have been employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments.

The HVDC transmission market is estimated to reach USD 10.77 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2022. In terms of power capacity, the market is estimated to reach 85.79 GW by 2022, at a CAGR of 9.8% between 2016 and 2022. Several countries are looking for reliable and stable power supply in terms of renewable sources for power generation. This is expected to fuel the demand for HVDC transmission systems to connect the renewable power to the grids and transfer it over long distances to the load centers.

The market for VSC-based technology is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period as VSC converters are compact in size and a less expensive solution used in HVDC transmission systems.

The multi-terminal project type is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. The development and growth of the offshore wind sector is expected to be driven largely by the favorable government policies. Increasing offshore wind farm connection in multi-terminal systems is opening new application areas in this market.

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Market

The HVDC transmission market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as, high development in power transmission networks and various government initiatives to integrate wind energy in power grids to ensure clean energy generation are expected to drive the growth of the market in this region.

High prices of HVDC circuit breakers and high installation cost are the key factors restraining the growth of the HVDC transmission market. In addition, the standard of the solutions transmission equipment and systems does not match the national standards, which is required to be customized accordingly. This adds up to the cost of the systems, which is eventually passed on to the end users. It is one of the major challenges faced by the market at large.

Key players in this market are focused on strategic partnerships, collaborations, agreements, and new product launches to increase their revenue. ABB Ltd. is a leading player in the HVDC transmission market. The company focuses on new projects and partnerships to maintain its presence worldwide. For instance, in 2015, ABB Ltd. and Hitachi (Japan) established a joint venture company named Hitachi ABB HVDC Technologies, Ltd. in Japan. The new venture would provide ABB’s latest technology to HVDC projects. The duo intends to contribute Hitachi’s sales network, project management know-how, and quality assurance processes with leading-edge HVDC technology and system integration capability from ABB.
