Smart grids are electric power systems that consist of sophisticated software solutions, automated control technology, and sensors for data acquisition and data control. Smart grid sensors are an integral component of the smart grid. These sensors provide a complex energy system network automatically monitors the flow of energy and adjusts the energy flow for desirable energy demand and supply balance, which is among the primary applications of these devices.

Smart grid sensors are small and lightweight nodes that are employed as detection stations in smart grid networks. These grid sensors are gaining immense popularity across novel smart grids, owing to their ability to monitor and control the production and distribution of electric power along with electrical power conditioning.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Smart Grid Sensors Market Growth

As the trend of electrification and continues to create deeper inroads, a swift rise in demand for electricity and efficient power transmission & distribution is being registered worldwide. According to a study by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the demand for electricity worldwide is projected to surge at 2.1% per year to 2040, which is twice the rate of overall primary energy demand.

Thus, governments in several countries are emphasizing on the development of new smart girds and replacing old power infrastructure to decline the cost of distribution and reduce electricity loss.

For instance, according to a report by the India Smart Grid Forum, the Indian Government announced sanctioning US$ 129.9 Mn for the development of smart grids for transforming the country's power infrastructure across smart cities in India under the National Smart Grid Mission (NSGM).

Smart grid sensors play a crucial role in remote monitoring of energy transformers, power lines, and other equipments for demand-side resource management across smart grids. Hence, an increasing number of smart grid development projects such as ARRA Smart Grid Investment Grant Projects, Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Project, and others across the U.S., the U.K., Germany, China, and others is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities in the global smart grid sensors market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Smart Grid Sensors Industry

Due to the complexities of smart grid sensors, the initial cost involved in the installation of these components are relatively high, which is in turn, declining the adoption of sensors across residential and commercial buildings for monitoring energy efficiency.

In addition to this, huge capital investment for the construction of smart grids and lengthy & time-consuming government approval for novel smart grids development projects are further restraining the growth in the smart grid sensors market.

Why is North America as an Opportunistic Smart Grid Sensors Market

As per FMI, North America is projected to account for the lion’s share in the global smart grid sensors market over the forecast period 2022-2032.

Increasing sales of electric vehicles, growing environmental concerns regarding carbon emission, and rising crude oil & petroleum products prices have augmented the demand for electricity in North America.

Hence, government countries such as the U.S. and Canada are focusing production of renewable energy and refurbishment of old electrical grids. For instance, the U.S. Government has launched an initiative, the Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) program, for accelerating the up gradation and refurbishment of electric transmission and distribution systems in the country.

As smart grid sensors are extensively used in modern electric grid infrastructures to control and manage operations including generation, distribution, transmission, as well as end use, such developments are estimated to bolster the sales in the North America market.
