DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Digital Substation Market (2021-2026)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Global Digital Substation Market is estimated to be USD 9.6 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 13.5 Bn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7%.

The “digital substation” refers to an electrical substation in which activities are controlled amongst different dispersed intelligent electronic devices that are linked by a communications network. This substation offers significant advantages in terms of design, engineering, installation, and operation.

Furthermore, these units are increasing in popularity because of their high availability, dependability, and smart grid communication capabilities throughout the world.

The growing demand for energy and the fast use of non-renewable energy resources have shifted the need for power generation toward renewable energy resources. Moreover, the use of technology in energy production, distribution, and administration has combined renewable energy with digital substations.

The increased need for renewable energy consumption in developed nations to promote sustainable development has boosted market expansion. The use of digital substations for renewable energy generation, improved reliability, efficiency, and safety in power distribution, and the introduction of automation and better connection standards drive the worldwide Digital Substation market.

Additionally, growing digital substation construction in the Middle East and Asia Pacific area opens the door for prospects. However, more significant initial investments make replacing traditional substations difficult, limiting the expansion of the digital substation industry.
