Substation Automation Market Overview


The global substation automation market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 7.1%, with a value of USD 60.2 billion over the forecasted 2020-2027.


The primary features of substation automation are monitoring and controlling substation devices using the modules like intelligent electronic devices and two-way communications through remote access. The aim is to monitor and control the substation instruments to reduce the incidence and duration of the power outages. The growth of the substation automation market is driven by factors like the rise in electricity demand globally, the upsurge of the smart grids, and the need to upgrade the existing networks. Furthermore, the higher cost of the installation and cyber-attack are the key factors that decrease the growth of the global market sectors.


Regardless of such challenges, advancements in communication technologies and renewable and non-conventional energy resources created numerous opportunities for the substation automation growth of the market sectors. The product launch strategy primarily drives the substation automation market. All the agreements and partnerships and mergers and acquisitions are other prominent strategies involved in the arrangements and partnerships with product launches; in addition, 20% of the chosen methods are accounted for due to the partnerships and agreements with expansions.


COVID 19 Analysis


The global pandemic of COVID 19 has affected a major chunk of the population. Many people have lost their livelihood because of this global pandemic. It has affected the dynamics and growth of several industries. Owing to the shortage of vaccines, everyone is concerned about their immunity and follows social distancing. During the lockdown situation, operational activities of various end-user industries were halted which resulted in demand shrink for the substation automation market which further leads to decreased sales revenue. The supply chain networks were also disrupted which lead to a decline in profit margin.


However, the substation automation market is expected to recover from this global pandemic by the end of the third quarter of the coming year by properly strategizing according to the needs of the market.
