GlobalData’s new report, “High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Converter Stations - Global Market Size, Average Pricing, Equipment Market Share and Competitive Landscape Analysis to 2020”, gives detailed information on the HVDC substaion market, focusing on the key global markets.

Drivers, restraints and revenue forecasts, average pricing, market share analysis and sales volumes (in numbers and MW) are covered for the global market. The report covers eight key countries for the HVDC substation market. Revenue forecasts, average pricing, market share analysis, sales volume analysis (in numbers and MW) and major contracts are covered at the national level for each country.

Global HVDC Converter Station Market Expected to Have Substantial Growth

The HVDC converter station market is expected to show considerable growth in the future, as the global demand for electricity is expected to rise. With rising electricity demand in Asia-Pacific countries, the need to transmit electricity over long distances with fewer transmission losses has increased. The share of clean power from hydro, wind and other renewable energy sources in the global energy mix is expected to increase, although power plants producing these sorts of energy are expected to be far away from urban areas. HVDC transmission is expected to be used to transmit clean electricity generated from renewable power plants to urban areas. The cumulative market revenues of the global HVDC converter station market were $12131m over the historic period of 2006-2010. This is expected to increase to $62,475m over the forecast period of 2011-2020.

Developed countries are obliged to supply a specific percentage of electricity from renewable power plants by 2020. This is expected to benefit the offshore wind market in North America and Europe. The offshore wind farm market is poised for impressive growth over the forecast period. Many of the upcoming offshore wind farms are of large capacities and are expected to be built in deep waters, thereby benefiting the HVDC converter station market. Cross-border interconnections in Europe are also expected to increase over the course of the forecast period. Apart from renewable energy obligations, which promote renewable energy trade between different countries, concerns over electricity security and reliability, as well as rising electricity prices, are expected to lead to an increase in electricity trade in Europe. However, many of the existing transmission lines have reached their maximum transmission capacities for which they were designed for. A number of new interconnections are planned between the UK, Germany, Poland, France and Sweden, among other countries. The HVDC converter station market is expected to benefit from these new interconnections.
