The smart grid market is projected to reach USD 103.4 billion by 2026 from an estimated USD 43.1 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 19.1% during the forecast period. Governments worldwide are undertaking many initiatives to meet the future electricity demands and focusing on reducing carbon footprint by promoting the use of renewable energy sources to produce energy. Increasing need of efficiency and stability of electric grid are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the smart grid market during the forecast period. However, high installation costs of smart grid acts as a restraint for the installing the smart grid systems.
"The software segment by component is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026."
Based on the component of smart grid systems, the software component is estimated to be the fastest-growing market from 2019 to 2026. The smart grid software helps ensure effective management of smart grid operations, improves process efficiency, and reduces energy production costs; hence, the segment captures the major market share.
"Distribution segment by application is expected to emerge as the largest segment for smart grid implementation"
The distribution segment, by application, is projected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period. Distribution substations isolate the faults in transmission systems. Distribution feeders transport power from the distribution substations to end users, serving many premises. Efficient distribution application helps in quicker restoration of electricity after power disturbances, reduces operations and management costs for utilities, and ultimately lowers the power costs for consumers.
"North America: The largest smart grid market"
North America is currently the largest smart grid market, followed by Europe and the APAC. US accounted for the maximum share of the North America market in 2020. It is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. One of the key reasons for the large market size is the early adoption of smart grid projects. The strong financial position of the US and Canada enables them to invest heavily in smart infrastructure platforms of the smart grid market.
