Expected Impact on Market by Coronavirus Outbreak

The covid-19 pandemic had an adverse impact on the substation automation market. Disruptions to supply chains for essential raw materials and components have limited growth in the market during the crisis. Further, lockdown restrictions and social distancing guidelines in multiple end use industries.

In addition, government expenditure has been redirected towards the healthcare sector during the pandemic, slowing down the adoption of substation automation systems. However, with the gradual relaxation of regulations and international trade the industry is projected to display steady recovery through 2021, which is likely to continue in the coming decade.

Competition Landscape

Some of the leading manufacturers participating in the fragmented substation automation market include Siemens AG, Echelon Corporation, Eaton Corporation plc, Encore Networks Inc., Alstom SA, ABB Limited, Schneider Electric SE, General Electric Company, NovaTech LLC, and Cisco Systems Inc.

Leading players in the substation automation market are largely focused on seeking large scale contracts for new installations, upgrades, and retrofitting with end user organizations in an effort to set up sustainable streams of revenue.

In February 2021, the Power Transmission & Distribution arm of Larsen and & Toubro secured 400 MW solar photovoltaic projects in Gujarat, India including associated transformers, substation, automation systems, reactors, switchgear, and more. Lixon has also won a substation order supporting transition in the German energy sector including a 380-kilovolt kV facility which will replace a 220 kV substation with new GIS bays, control and protection systems, double-busbar, measurement and telecom systems, and substation automation. In March 2021, Hitachi ABB gained a project with Bharat Aluminum Company for its Korba plant with a 400 kV gas-insulated switchgear substations with MicroSCADA automation solutions for maximum power availability.
