Global Substation Market Global Scenario, Market Size, Outlook, Trend, and Forecast, 2020 – 2030

The global substation market was valued at US$ 96.1 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ 132.7 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2021 – 2030.

The substation is a crucial part of the generation, transmission, and distribution system and is mainly used for lowering the high voltage to low from the transmission system. Commercial customers, large industries, and electrical utilities own and operate substations. Substations transform the voltage from high to low and vice versa with the help of transformers. Substations run on SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) and are generally unattended. Substations are mainly designed for lowering the high voltage from the transmission system to low voltage for smooth supply to the public & corporate sectors. Substations play a vital role in the power industry and it supports circuits, generators, and equipment. They also help in the smooth flow of electricity to residencies and the commercial sector.
