Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Phase, Three phase category to hold significant market share”

Based on phase, the shunt reactor market is categorized into Single Phase and Three Phase. Amongst these, the three-phase category is expected to hold a significant share of the market in 2020 owing to its wide use in transmission and distribution networks. These shunt reactors are extensively used for controlling the voltage throughout load differences in high voltage energy transmission systems. Based on the requirements of voltage, these reactors will operate to provide compensation for reactive power. They absorb (consume) reactive power by connecting them to the transmission line. Furthermore, increasing consumption of electricity due to an increasing population, followed by an increasing number of consumers and rapid urbanization, has led to a rise in demand for electricity, thereby raising the growth of shunt reactors across the globe.

“Amongst Voltage, 400 KV category to witness strong CAGR”

Based on voltage, the Shunt Reactor market is bifurcated into three segments: up to 200 KV, 200-400 KV, and above 400 KV. In 2020, the above 400 KV category accounted for a considerable share of the market. Moreover, growing requirements for protection solutions against sudden voltage spikes and investments into upgrading existing transmission and distribution networks will also augment the demand for high voltage shunt reactors. For instance, in India, under the Union Budget 2021-22, the government allocated US $42 billion (Rs. 305,984 crore) for a revamped, reform-based and result-linked new power distribution sector scheme over the next five years. Moreover, electrification in the country is increasing with support from schemes like Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY), Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS), among others. Thus, demand for high voltage shunt reactors from countries like India is expected to drive the market’s growth during the forecast period..

“Amongst End-User, Electric Utilities Category to Witness Higher CAGR”

On the basis of end-user, the market is categorized into electric utilities and industrial verticals. During the forecast period, the electric utilities category is expected to witness higher growth during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the refurbishment and retrofit of existing grid infrastructure in various developed and developing nations, coupled with the expansion of smart grid networks and the introduction and adoption of stringent energy efficiency norms globally. For instance, the Smart Renewables and Electrification Pathways Program (SREPs) supports building Canada’s low-emission energy future and a renewable, electrified economy through projects that focus on non-emitting, cleaner energy technologies, such as storage and modernizing electricity system operations. Investing in these technologies reduces greenhouse gas emissions by creating a cleaner, more connected electrical system that is expected to help Canada reach its net-zero emissions target by 2050.

 “Asia Pacific represents one of the largest markets of Shunt Reactor market”

For a better understanding of the market dynamics of the Shunt Reactor market, a detailed analysis was conducted for different regions across the globe including North America (the U.S, Canada, and the Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC) and Rest of the World. APAC region has been witnessing some of the largest T&D expansions due to rapidly increasing demand in countries such as India and China. In addition, an upsurge in renewable power generation projects is expected to positively influence the market demand for shunt reactors. For instance, in 2021, China’s total renewable energy capacity increased 10.2 percentage points as compared to 2015. The capacity exceeded 1,000 GW in 2021, according to the National Energy Administration, accounting for 43.5% of the country’s total power generation capacity. Thus, with the increased support of the government and improved economics, the sector has become attractive from an investor’s perspective, which is further expected to drive the market for shunt reactors in the region.
