Infeed urban areas application to register the highest CAGR in the HVDC transmission market during the forecast period

HVDC transmission is highly suitable for transmitting electricity into densely populated urban areas where overhead transmission lines could cause significant obstructions. Despite being more expensive, underground transmission lines are extensively preferred in urban areas where it is difficult to have overhead transmission cables. Furthermore, in recent areas, underground cables have been used in various urban infrastructure development projects for aesthetic appeal. The growing number of urban development projects globally is expected to provide growth opportunities for market players in the HVDC transmission market.

Multi-terminal systems to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Multi-terminal systems are extensively used for connecting non-synchronous power systems and provide superior flexibility in electricity exchange between 2 or 3 converter stations. Multi-terminal systems are cost-effective and are highly suitable for transmitting power over longer distances. VSC-based technology is extensively used in multi-terminal HVDC systems as it consists of 2-level or multilevel converters that enable power reversal. The increasing need for integration of power grids is a major factor driving the market growth for multi-terminal systems.

Europe is expected to account for the second-largest market share during the forecast period

Significantly growing use of renewable energy and the subsequent increase in renewable energy projects in the region are the major factors driving the market growth in Europe. Furthermore, the growing number of HVDC projects being commissioned in countries such as the UK is expected to provide growth opportunities for market players. Moreover, the presence of established market players such as Siemens Energy (Germany) and Prysmian Group (Italy) is also expected to propel the market growth in the region.
