High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is one of the fastest growing market in the field of Transmission and Distribution (T&D) because of its ability to address major issues encountered by modern grid like steep rise in renewable integration, grid congestion, security of supply, bulk power transfer and asynchronous grid connections.

HVDC market is estimated to grow at a faster rate in years to come and will be driven by installation of offshore wind power projects in Europe and centralized generation in India and China. Regulations enforced by utilities and grid requirements in Europe will cause VSC based HVDC to dominate other existing technologies. However, UHVDC projects planned in China will also boost the LCC based HVDC.

The HVDC service captures these market trends through two lenses. First, HVDC database that contains details about individual projects installed in last two decades and future outlook of the market. Each

HVDC project is broken down into its technical details in terms of converter technology (LCC vs VSC), converter manufacturer, capacity, voltage and transmission medium. Second part of the service includes qualitative information regarding manufacturer profiles, new market entrants, R&D spends, opportunities and bottlenecks present in the industry.
