Sales of Synchronous Condensers Receiving Significant Impetus from Renewable Energy Plants, Says FMI

Sep 18,2019 | Industrial Automation & Equipment

Future Market Insights has recently published its latest report on the synchronous condenser market, which includes global industry analysis 2014–2018 and opportunity assessment 2019–2029. The report explores the synchronous condenser market and highlights important insights during the forecast period of 2019-2029. As per the key findings, the global synchronous condenser market is anticipated to experience prominent growth over the forecast period, due to multiple driving factors such as increasing number of HVDC projects in developing economies such as India, Indonesia, China, and conversion of conventional generators & cooling plants to synchronous condensers.

The global synchronous condenser market was valued at ~US$ 760 Mn in 2018, and is estimated to increase at a CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period of 2019-2029. This growth is majorly driven by the integration of renewable energy through solar and wind power plants and increasing installation of synchronous condensers to carry robust functioning of the power plants.

synchronous condenser market share by region pr

Rapid inclination towards wind and solar energy, in an attempt to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels has been generating significant demand for synchronous condensers in recent years. According to FMI analysis, manufacturers are setting their sights on countries, such as China which is making great strides to increase energy production from non-fossil fuel sources.

Newer Opportunities Identified in Middle East & Africa

Regions such as North America and Europe, are likely to hold prominent market shares in terms of value. However, the South Asiam market is estimated to project lucrative growth in the global synchronous condenser market over the forecast period of 2019-2029. This growth in the region is propelled by the rapid technological advancements and growing number of HVDC projects in prominent countries such as India and Indonesia, among others.

Furthermore, the market of synchronous condensers is expected to grow predominantly in prominent countries of Middle East and Africa including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Nigeria, and U.A.E., owing to various macroeconomic factors such as growing urbanization, stable political & social backdrop, and rapid industrialization. Increasing number of market players in the region have gained the confidence of foreign investors and grid operators to invest in the market. Moreover, refurbishment of synchronous condensers from old conventional plants and generators to new machines have added expressively positive momentum over the few past years. Also, rapidly growing number of HVDC projects in MEA and installment of sustainable energy plants have boosted the demand for synchronous condensers to provide stability and robust functioning of power plants. These factors have resulted in significant growth of the synchronous condenser market in the region.

Rising Number of HVDC and Related Substation Projects Creating New Opportunities for Synchronous Condenser Manufacturers

The global market of synchronous condensers has been segmented on the basis of different types of synchronous condensers, their multiple applications, and regions such as North America, Latin America, Europe, South Asia, East Asia, Oceania, Middle East and Africa.

  • By product, newly built synchronous condenser is likely to hold prominent value shares of the global synchronous condenser market. This has majorly resulted from the increasing adoption of synchronous condensers over conventional cooling gas plants and increasing installation of solar and wind farms in several countries.
  • On the basis of cooling, the water cooled segment is expected to consume majority share of the global synchronous condenser market value. This is driven by the increasing demand for water cooled synchronous condensers across several regions. Furthermore, it is expected that the application of synchronous condensers in power plants and other similar machines will grow prominently throughout the forecast period.
  • On the basis of power rating, synchronous condensers ranging from less than 50 MVAR and from 50 to 80 MVAR are expected to consume majority share of the global synchronous condenser market value. This is driven by the increasing construction of synchronous condensers under specified power ratings by key market players across several regions.
