"The synchronous condensers market is forecasted to reach $572.90M by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate of 2.10 percent from 2016 to 2021"

The synchronous condensers market is estimated to grow $572.90M by 2021, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.10 percent from 2016 to 2021. The growing electrical power consumption and increasing need to maximize transmission capacity are becoming increasingly important. Along with this, increasing renewable-based power generation in the energy mix, retiring conventional power plants, and increasing network of High-Voltage Direct Current has had a considerable effect on transmission grid stability. Synchronous condensers play a vital role by generating lagging and leading reactive power and helping to stabilize the transmission grid. It also provides different advantages over the other substitutes including no harmonics, short-circuit power capability, and inertia to the transmission grid among others.

On the other hand, high cost of equipment and availability of low-cost alternatives are the main factors restraining the increase of the synchronous condenser market.

"Synchronous condensers rated above 200 MVAr dominate the worldwide market"

Synchronous condensers rated above 200 MVAr held the largest part of market share in 2015, and is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment in the synchronous condensers market from 2016 to 2021. This rise is evident owing to increasing installations of synchronous condensers rated above 200 MVAr, especially in North America and Europe (EU).

"Hydrogen cooled synchronous condensers dominate the overall market"

Hydrogen-cooled synchronous condenser segment held the biggest market share in 2015, and is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment in the synchronous condensers market from 2016 to 2021. This increase is assigned to the adoption and efficiency of large-sized synchronous condensers for reactive power rating of above 200 Mega Volt Amps.

"North America continent to lead the overall synchronous condensers market in terms of increase rate"

The synchronous condensers market in North America (NA) is expected to grow at the quickest rate during the outlook period. Gradual phasing out of thermal power plants and growing renewable power generation are driving the synchronous condensers market in the area. North America continent is followed by EU. Demand for synchronous condensers in Europe (EU) is mainly influenced by growing HVDC network in the territory.
