Increasing focus on effective management and modernizing aging grid infrastructure to drive the overall smart grid market

The global smart grid market size is expected to grow from USD 23.8 billion in 2018 to USD 61.3 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 20.9% during the forecast period.

Major growth factors for the market include the need for effective management of smart grid operations, modernization of aging grid infrastructure, and the need for specialized service providers who can offer cost-effective services. However, the high initial cost for deployment of smart grid technology solutions can hinder the market growth.

Smart grid distribution management software to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

In recent years, renewable energy sources have gained significance. The development of the smart grid technology has benefitted traditional energy infrastructure vendors and offered business opportunities for emerging players planning to capitalize on the untapped market opportunities. Key growth drivers of the smart grid distribution management/ADM market include the growing smart grid technology market, increasing adoption of distributed renewable generation, and regulatory pressure for reducing carbon emission.

Deployment and integration services segment to hold the largest market size during the forecast period

Deployment and integration services in the energy sector help in streamlining business applications by adequate installation and integration of various modules of utility smart grid operations. These services help in overcoming various business challenges, creating high growth opportunities, and accelerating technological innovations. Hence, enterprises opt for these services to make the whole deployment and integration process smooth and reduce costs and inefficiencies.

Asia Pacific (APAC) to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period

APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as the rapidly increasing consumption of power in major APAC countries, such as China, India, and Japan, has driven the need to introduce new measures to generate, distribute, or use electricity efficiently. Also, they have finally realized advantages in the smart grid industry and developed a comprehensive roadmap to leverage these assets toward a countrywide smart grid infrastructure development. Meanwhile, North America is projected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period.
