San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Over the five years through 2013, revenue for the Electricity Transmission and Distribution industry in China has been growing at an annualized rate of 11.5% to an estimated $580.2 billion, says IBISWorld. Due to the rapid development of China's economy and improving living standards across urban and rural households, electricity demand has increased rapidly. Total electricity consumption and generation have been increasing at an annualized rate of 10.0% in the five years through 2013.
The Electricity Transmission and Distribution industry is heavily regulated and controlled by the government, says IBISWorld. The industry's two enterprises, the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) and China Souther Power Grid (CSG), jointly control 80% of the electricity retail market and almost 100% of electricity transmission and distribution activities. Both enterprises have very large power grid networks, which greatly reinforce their competitive power.
Government restrictions on high power-consuming industries and China's shift from heavy industrialization to deep-processing industrialization will likely slow industry revenue growth in the next five years, says IBISWorld. In fact, energy consumption per unit of GDP value is expected to slow or even decrease. With end users free to choose power suppliers, competition within the retail segment of the industry will increase. However, SGCC and CSG will continue to have considerable sway in the retail chain by controlling most retailers and overseeing the transmission and distribution of electric power.
