The digital substation market consists of sales of digital substation by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that is used to communicate between the relays in the control house and the instrument breakers, transformers, and merging units in the station yard.The digital substation brings digital technology into the substation.

The term digital substation refers to electrical substation in which operation is controlled by distributed intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) linked by the communication networks. It is possible by the use of computing technologies in the substation.

The main types of digital substations are transmission and distribution.The transmission digital substations market segment consists of sales of digital substations by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that refers to a structure, device, or equipment that is commonly positioned and built for voltage control, circuit protection, or switching that is required for the construction or operation of a proposed transmission line is referred to as a transmission digital substation.

By voltage levelm types of digital substations are low, medium and high.Modules used in digital substation include fiber optics communication network, supervisory control and data acquisition, and hardware.

The major uses of digital substation can be seen in the power generation, metal and mining, oil and gas, transportation and logistics, defence and aerospace, process and manufacturing, and other indsutries.

Europe was the largest region in the digital substation market in 2021.Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.

The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The increasing demand for electricity is expected to propel the growth of the digital substation market.Digital substations are actively used in replacing traditional copper cable with advanced fiber optics transmitters to covert electrical signals to optical signals.

Digital substations are also used in power grids and transformers to minimize losses during transmission of electricity.For instance, in November 2021, according to the International Energy Agency’s semi-annual Power Market Report, the global electricity demand is expected to climb by 5% in 2021 and 4% in 2022.

The amount of electricity generated by renewables is expected to rise as well, by 8% in 2021 and over 6% in 2022. Therefore, the increase in demand for electricity is driving the digital substation market.

Strategic collaboration between companies is a key trend gaining popularity in the digital substation market.Companies that provide digital solutions are undergoing partnerships and collaborations to cope up with the digital transformation that is occurring at a rapid pace.

For instance, in December 2020, ABB, a Sweden-based technology and industrial company that provides digital substations, partnered with CORYS, a manufacturing business established in France.The collaboration will develop digital twin modeling and simulation technology in the energy and industrial industries.

Furthermore, in September 2020, Siemens AG, a Germany-based engineering and manufacturing company that provides digital substations, partnered with Atos, a France-based information technology services and consulting firm, for a deal amount of $3.40 billion. Siemens’ digital goals in the areas of services modernization and digitalization, data-driven digital, cloud transformation, and cybersecurity are likely to be accelerated as a result of the relationship.

In February 2021, Kalpataru Power Do Brasil Participacoes Ltd, a Brazilian provider of power transmission and infrastructure EPC space, acquired a 51% stake in Fasttel Engenharia Ltd for an $8.8 million. The acquisition allows Kalpataru Power to capitalize on the opportunity in Brazil and to grow its position in the Latin American market. Fasttel Engenharia is a Brazilian firm that specializes in the engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance of electricity transmission lines, substations, and distribution systems.

The countries covered in the Digital Substation market report are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, USA.
