Smart Grid Market Size Projected to Grow $103.4 Billion by 2026 | at a CAGR of 19.1%

Chicago, Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Smart Grid Market size is projected to grow from USD 43.1 billion in 2021 to USD 103.4 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 19.1% according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™. Smart grid technology enables the transition from a traditional energy distribution network to an intelligent electricity grid that allows two-way communication between the utility and its customers. Governments across the world have imposed several supportive policies and mandates, focusing on implementing smart grids and spreading awareness about energy conservation. These regulations drive the adoption of smart grid technology for industrial, commercial, and residential applications.

With the increasing complexity of the bulk power system and the growing focus on mitigating power outages, smart grid technology is poised to transform the traditional grid and is likely to become a more reliable and resilient approach. This technology helps the utilities sector to speed up the restoration process when a power outage takes place after major storm events; it also reduces the restoration cost and total outage time, resulting in less financial losses to utility providers. Smart grid technology provides better situational awareness and relies on cloud-processed data to receive commands to exert autonomous control actions to the utility provider. Increasing demand for smart infrastructure in industrial, commercial, and residential environment to offer lucrative opportunities for the smart grid market during the forecast period.

The software is expected to be the most significant segment of the smart grid market

The software segment accounted for the largest share of the smart grid market, by component, in 2020. Smart grid software simplifies the implementation and functionality of the smart grid. It also supports the construction and maintenance of smart grids, including infrastructure management, advanced technical calculations, forecasting and planning production of energy, control and regulation of voltage levels and reactive power, as well as mechanisms to actively shape the demand. Smart grid software solutions help ensure effective management of smart grid operations, improve process efficiency, and reduce energy production costs, which, in turn, would likely to accelerate the demand for smart grid software solutions.

The consumption is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment of the smart grid market

The consumption segment expected to be the fastest-growing segment, by application, during the forecast period. The introduction of smart grids has brought several benefits to the utilities industry, such as enhanced reliability and power quality, reduced dependence on imported energy, and better use of existing assets. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) enables consumers to have a fair idea of consumption and pricing information, thereby enabling them to participate more effectively in peak load reduction and energy conservation. The software offers personalized tariff plans, along with other enhanced services, such as remote meter reading for error-free data, network congestion identification, load profiling, energy audits, and partial load curbing in case of load shedding.
