Global substation automation market is witnessing a robust growth due to the increasing demand for electricity to be transmitted and distributed efficiently across the world. In order to achieve the goal of efficient transmission and distribution of electricity, the automation of substations is required. The conventional electric grid does not support two way communication, however, if the substation is automated, then two way communication becomes possible that helps to reduce transmission and distribution losses. In order to make the electricity substations automated, the use of equipment such as specific software, special sensors and equipment that facilitate two way communication is entailed.

In addition, there is a use of intelligent electronic devices such as protective relays, programmable logical control, digital transducers, etc. are also used. Such type of equipment help in the monitoring and controlling of substation equipment. Also, with the help of such equipment, the incidences and duration of power outages are reduced.

According to the assessment of XploreMR, the global substation automation market is forecasted to reach a figure of about US$ 142,900 Mn in 2022 and is poised to exhibit a robust CAGR in the period of assessment.

North America Market Set to Dominate the Global Substation Automation Market in Terms of Revenue

The market in North America is set to dominate the global substation automation market in terms of value and this trend is projected to sustain itself throughout the assessment period. North America substation automation market is the most attractive market, growing at a robust CAGR over the forecast period.

Intelligent Electronic Device Segment Slated to Touch a Value of Nearly US$ 104,750 Mn in 2022
