Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Electric power transmission and distribution equipment play a critically important role in voltage conversion and in supplying power to consumers. Electric power transmission involves bulk transfer of high voltage electrical energy generated by electric power plants and electrical grid substations to sub-stations at demand centers through transmission lines. When inter-connected with each other, transmission lines become transmission networks. Electricity distribution involves final stage delivery of electricity from sub-stations to end-users through distribution network inclusive of local distribution poles and local wiring. Given that storage of electricity is an expensive proposition, electric power is produced, delivered and consumed almost simultaneously thereby demanding highly efficient transmission and distribution equipment.

Growth in the world electric power transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment will be driven by growing population, higher standards of living, increase per capita electricity consumption, ongoing industrialization in developing countries, and rising environmental awareness. Against the backdrop of growing consumption of energy in residential, commercial and industrial markets, demand for equipment for generation, transmission and distribution of electricity is expected to escalate. The market will continue to benefit from the numerous measures taken by governments across the globe to ensure energy self-sufficiency and eliminate shortages in power supply. Future growth will also be driven by the constant need to replace the fast aging installed base of existing power transmission and distribution equipment. Regulatory mandates for bringing improvements in grid reliability will additionally make upgradation obligatory thus benefiting market demand.

Technology innovations over the years have enabled T&D equipment to become highly miniaturized as well as efficient in minimizing power losses. Grid harmonization and automation is expected to drive the market for energy efficient new generation T&D equipment. Smart Grids represent a vital component of modern day power system enabling power supply with higher reliability. Other recent advancements poised to benefit market prospects in the near term include Whispering transformers, Dry transformers, Amorphous Metal Transformers (AMTs), and wireless power transmission technology, among others.

As stated by the new market research report on Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Equipment, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 7.8% over the analysis period. Increasing investments in the power sector, rapid economic development, improvement in standards of living, development of new urban settlements and townships and expanding real-estate activity in existing urban centers are driving the development of power transmission and distribution infrastructure in the region.
