According To FMI, Substation Automation Market Is Expected To Reach US$ 67.29 Billion By 2031

In 2021, the value of the substation automation market is expected to exceed US$ 37.48 billion. Sales of retrofit conventional substations will increase through 2031 due to high demand. Substation automation will continue to be widely used across manufacturing units. Future Market Insights (FMI) predicts that sales in commercial and civic power utilities, as well as oil and gas terminals, will catch up over the assessment period.

Furthermore, the growing number of data centres built to support the world’s expanding digital activities following COVID-19 will allow the substation automation market to grow at a 6% CAGR between 2021 and 2031. According to FMI, the substation automation market will account for 18% of industrial automation sales in 2021.

After countering the initial slowdown caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, recovery of the substation automation market is anticipated. As per the report, sales of substation automation are expected to grow at a robust 8.20% CAGR in terms of value between 2021 and 2031.

Growing demand for retrofit substation automation across various end-use sectors is expected to augment growth of the market. In addition to this, surging applications of digital systems across manufacturing units, civic and power utilities, and the oil & gas sector will continue propelling sales of substation automation in the forthcoming years.

Substation automation systems streamline asset management and enhance operational and maintenance capabilities with minimal human intervention. The installation of these systems also reduces repair costs and prevents forced outages.

Disturbance analysis is another benefit offered by substation automation. The implementation of these systems records fault waveform and time stamp the measured operational data. Owing to these factors, applications of substation automation are expected to rise in manufacturing facilities across various industries.

Further, sales of substation automation are expected to gain momentum in commercial and civic power utilities. As per the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), approximately 20% of the electricity generated in the country was from renewable energy sources.

Growing demand for effective power supply across commercial and residential sectors is expected to propel the adoption of substation automation in the forthcoming years.

“Growing adoption of substation automation in smart grids to enable remote monitoring and to avoid grid failures is expected to improve sales. In addition to this, increasing applications of substation automation software to improve financial performance, customer services, and organizational effectiveness will continue augmenting the growth of the market through 2031,” says an FMI analyst.
