SkyQuest recommends players to invest in smart grid technologies in order to Enhance their product offerings

According to SkyQuest analysis, we found that the players in the global Smart Grid market will benefit from potential opportunities for expansion in the coming years as global demand for Smart Grid rises. In order to gain revenue benefits, key players in the Smart Grid market are concentrating on expanding and improving their product offerings by enhancing their smart grid technologies. Smart grids aid in the modernization of power grids by reducing losses in transmission and distribution. Smart grid technologies are supported by software such as MDMS, SCADA, DRM, DMS, and others. This technology handles electricity demand and supply, as well as continuous data exchange via networking, information analytics, data storage, and data & information management. This system provides numerous opportunities for conserving energy and efficiency.

Distribution automation, smart metering and transmitting upgrades, power station automation, and smart grid IT/OT are all part of this technology. Such advanced smart technologies are primarily used for electrical transmission, which stabilizes the grid while also providing accurate power control and maximum power.

Supporting this, we advise companies to focus on Innovation which is a critical component that will likely drive the market over the forecast period.

According to our industry analyst, the global market is moderately fragmented, with a large number of international and domestic players present. Key Smart Grid companies are expected to focus on expansion strategies in order to gain regional market share, and technology/product launches, all while expanding their operations and offerings. The market is expected to see more infrastructure upgrades in the coming years.

Top Trends in Global Smart Grid Market

  1. Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are currently being made available to customers in a variety of countries to aid in the transformation to low-carbon transportation. A smart grid system is intended to provide the facilities required for the efficient use of these PEVs. Increased production of electric vehicles provides a growth opportunity for the market, as several countries, including India, China, Europe, and the United States, among others, are already deploying and encouraging the production of electric vehicles. For example, in July 2021, PSE&G, a U.S. utility, will partner with Landis+Gyr for the installation and supply of advanced meters, as well as currently undergoing technologies, in New Jersey. PSE&G will invest USD 1 billion in energy efficiency initiatives for customers, as well as USD 700 million in smart meters and electric vehicle initiatives.
  2. The newly announced smart city projects in emerging economies provide opportunities for expansion for these types of grids. For instance, in June 2021, the World Bank's Board of Executive Directors sanctioned a USD 212 million financing package for a new project in Ukraine, including a USD 177 million International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) loan. The project will help to synchronize the Ukrainian power system with the European electricity grid and decarbonize the power sector.
