Market Analysis: Global HVDC Transmission Market

Global HVDC transmission market is set to witness a substantial CAGR of 7.50% in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026. The report contains data of the base year 2018 and historic year 2017. The rise in the market can be attributed due to the surge in population globally which in turn increase the demand for electricity consumption. With the rise in the need for cable based transmission instead of overhead transmission lines are driving the growth of the market.

Market Definition: Global HVDC Transmission Market

High Voltage Direct Current Transmission (HDVC) is the bulk transmission of electric power over long distances.  The systems are connected through the power grids in the particular area which also eliminates the issues related to loss of electricity. HDVC is less expensive and is the most efficient solution for transmitting the electrical power generated from solar and wind farms over the long distances. It uses the voltages between 100kV–800kV and maintains the economy of each grid.

Market Drivers:

  • Efficient solution for long distance electricity transmission is driving the market for HVDC
  • There is a surge in the demand for voltage sourced converter
  • There is substantial shift towards the renewable energy sources globally which is driving the market growth
  • There are various government initiatives and policies that are driving the market for HVDC
  • There is an increase in the demand for cable based transmission which is fueling growth of the market

Market Restraints:

  • The short circuits in AC power system can result in power faults which hinders the market growth
  • The various complexities associated with multi-terminal systems are hampering the market growth
