The global market for Power Transmission and Distribution Equipment is projected to exceed US$200 billion by 2024, driven by the ever-present demand for energy; growing trend towards distributed energy generation; and rising investments in smart grids. Other major factors also poised to drive growth in the market include improvements in the design and architecture of transformers; rising prominence of ultra-high-voltage (UHV) transmission systems; development of multi-terminal HVDC transmission systems with HVDC circuit breakers; and popularity of intelligent smart distribution systems. Rising demand for long-distance energy transmission is forecast to fuel demand for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology, given its ability to connect power grids from remote places and allow delivery of power without energy losses or outages. With the cost of energy as high as 7.5% of GDP, there is considerable focus shed on energy-efficient production, transmission and distribution of power in order to minimize energy losses and lower the lifecycle costs of power generation equipment. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 5.8% over the analysis period led by factors such as developing economies; rapid industrialization; vigorous infrastructural development; increasing investments in UHVDC; government policy led prioritization of domestic energy infrastructure development; and increased R&D in transformer innovations by manufacturers.
