“The growing demand for flexible substation solutions and low-cost devices is driving the adoption of digital substations in various industries”

The digital substation market is expected to grow from USD 6.32 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 9.96 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.87% between 2017 and 2023.A digital substation enables an electric utility to monitor and control the transmission and distribution of components installed in the substation remotely. These substations use modernized technologies such as dedicated software, and efficient two-way communication to control power system devices. The major restraining factor for the digital substation market is the high initial investment for setting up the digital substation.

“The digital substation market for220 kV to 550 kV is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period”

The voltage segment in the 220–550 kV range is estimated to hold the largest share, growing at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023. The digital substation market for 220–550 kV is expected to grow at the highest CAGR due to its increasing demand from the power utility sector as well as large industrial customers. Several companies such as Larsen & Toubro (India) are awarded a power and distribution contract to build a 220 kV substation in the Middle East for the utility application.
