Power Grid System Market

Market Leaders - Power Grid System Market in Subsea

The global power grid system market in subsea is projected to reach USD 14.8 billion by 2027 from an estimated USD 9.1 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period. The increased deepwater oil and gas exploration activities due to depleting onshore fossil fuel reserves and favorable government policies for offshore renewable power production, especially using wind energy is expected to drive the demand for global power grid system market in subsea. According to the BP Statistical Review of 2021, the top countries with the most untapped oil reserves include the US, Saudi Arabia, and Russia. Discoveries of such reserves will lead to increased well drilling and production activities. This will support the growth of the power grid system market in subsea.

The global power grid system market in subsea is served by a mix of large international players with operational presence across the globe and local players commanding a strong supply network in the domestic market. The leading players in the global power grid system market in subsea include Prysmian Group (Italy), Nexans (France), TechnipFMC (UK), General Electric (US) Baker Hughes (US), ABB (Switzerland), and Siemens Energy (Germany).
