Smart Grid Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 20% during the forecast period of 2017–2023

Market Scenario

Smart Grid can be defined as a smart electrical network that comprises an electrical network and smart digital communication technology. It is capable of delivering electricity to the user from multiple and widely distributed sources such as wind turbines, solar power systems, and even plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

The key players in the global smart grid market are General Electric Company (US), ABB Ltd.  (Switzerland), Siemens AG (Germany), Schneider Electric SA (France), Itron, Inc. (US) and others.

ABB Ltd. a prominent player in the smart grid market has designed smart grid wireless communication network. Its smart grid wireless communication network solution offers benefits such as lower operational cost by reducing on-field employee expenses, along with transportation, insurance, and medical costs. It encourages energy conservation by quickly identifying water leaks and faulty thermostats. It also helps in reducing customer complaints by maintaining high-quality, real-time data increases billing accuracy and eliminating estimated bills.

Smart grid exhibits extraordinary opportunity for the energy industry, leading it into a new era of reliability, availability, and efficiency these factors are expected to promote the economic and improve environmental health. The benefits associated with smart grid includes efficient transmission of electricity, faster restoration of electricity after power disturbance, improved integration of large-scale renewable energy systems, and others.

Other factors such as government initiatives for smart meter roll-outs, increasing demand for utilization of renewable energy sources and improved grid reliability are driving the market growth. However, factors such as high initial investment for the deployment of technology solutions and smart grid cyber security and vulnerabilities in energy industry are hampering the market growth.
