Background to this Market Research

  • T&D networks are growing every year and new infrastructure is required to keep pace as old technology is replaced
  • Different market forces are at work in the world's developed and developing nations
  • The market for retrofitting old technology is expanding rapidly

Highlights from this Market Research

As systems mature, in many cases in countries with static or even declining populations little expansion takes place except for housing rebuilds. In these countries there is a growing market for replacement, retrofit and refurbishment. In developing countries different dynamics are operating. Although expansion in developing countries, notably in large countries such as India, continues and there has been fast growth in recent years; major distribution systems installed in the 1960s are now in need of replacement reaching the end of their design lives.

Investment in transmission has lagged in recent years except in developing markets, especially China. In the process of market liberalization, T&D are subject to more regulation than generation and supply and the effect has been to divert investment from distribution and to an even greater extent form transmission to other more profit-driven sectors of the industry.
