China will continue to lead global high-voltage direct current converter stations market between 2019 and 2023, says GlobalData


June 17, 2019 ( Newswire) The global high-voltage direct current (HVDC) converter stations market growth is set to more than double from US$3.24bn in 2018 to US$6.88bn in 2023, primarily driven by growth in China, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company

The company's latest report 'HVDC Converter Stations, Update 2019 – Global Market Size, Competitive Landscape and Key Country Analysis to 2023' reveals that growing demand for power, increasing cross-border power transmission, various global initiatives to encourage implementation of renewable smart grids and the need to restrict carbon emissions are set to drive the aggregate value of the global HVDC converter stations market to US$32.88bn between 2019 and 2023.

Bhavana Sri Pullagura, Power Analyst at GlobalData, comments: "HVDC technology is a key enabler for grid transformation. The need for high-voltage and long distance power lines for transmission of bulk power from remote generation and integration of renewable energy capacity with the main grid will accelerate the demand for HVDC converter stations globally."

China led the global HVDC converter stations market with an aggregate market value of US$14.50bn between 2013 and 2018. Brazil ranked second with an aggregate market value of US$2.11bn during the period. During the forecast period, China is expected to continue to hold its leading position, followed by India and the UK.

A significant increase in renewable energy generation, supported by the government's objectives, has driven the HVDC converter stations market in India. As a result, the country was ranked third during the historical period with an aggregate market value of US$1.49m.

Bhavana Sri concludes: "Increasing requirement for power, rapid economic growth, initiatives promoting smart grids and renewable energy development are spurring investments towards transmission network upgrades. Remote power generation from renewables and transmission of electricity over long distances, as with wind farms, support the deployment of HVDC convertor stations. Moreover, the enhanced reliability and efficiency of HVDC systems will also aid in the growth of the market during the forecast period."
