According to MarketsandMarkets’ forecast, the digital substation market, in terms of value, is expected to grow from USD 6.32 Billion in 2017 to USD 9.96 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.87% between 2017 and 2023. The major drivers for the market include increasing infrastructure development in smart cities, rise in power demand with space availability, increasing demand for replacing traditional substation infrastructure, and improved safety and reduced maintenance costs.

This report covers the digital substation market based on module, type, voltage, industry, and region. The utility industry is expected to hold the largest share of the market between 2017 and 2023.

The voltage segment in the 220–550 kV range is estimated to hold the largest share, growing at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023. The digital substation market for 220–550 kV is expected to grow at the highest CAGR due to its increasing demand from the power utility sector as well as large industrial customers. Several companies such as Larsen & Toubro (India) are awarded a power and distribution contract to build a 220 kV substation in the Middle East for the utility application.

The digital substation market for the transmission substation is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. The digital substations installed with IEC 61850 compliance are capable of sustaining more bulk power movements and have a longer lifespan. Therefore, investor-owned utilities are spending more on upgrading the transmission substation infrastructure. Hence, the transmission digital substation is expected to grow at a faster CAGR during the forecast period.

Digital Substation Market

Asia Pacific (APAC) held the largest share of the digital substation market in 2016. The digital substation market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as building renewables with an energy capacity of 175 GW by 2022 and various initiatives taken by Government of India to improve its power and energy sector to ensure clean energy generation are expected to drive the growth of the market in APAC. The digital substation market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023.

The major challenge for the companies in the market is controlling cybersecurity threats. The major vendors in the digital substation market include ABB Group (Switzerland), Siemens (Germany), General Electric (US), Cisco Systems (US), Schneider Electric (France), Honeywell International (US), Emerson Electric (US), Larsen & Toubro (India), Eaton Corporation (Ireland), and NR Electric (China). These players adopted various strategies such as product developments, mergers, partnerships, collaborations, and expansions to cater to the needs of their customers.
