High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Market 2016-2026

Nov 25, 2015, 09:00 ET from Visiongain

LONDON, November 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

By Geography, Application, Technology, Configuration, Component, Distance and Cabling Type  

Visiongain calculates the global High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission market to be worth $30.06bn in 2016. This report addresses the development of the HVDC transmission market, placing analyses and data into the following detailed framework: By geography, application, technology, configuration, component, distance and cabling type. It is essential reading for stakeholders in the power networks and distribution and transmission environments. Do not miss an opportunity to remain informed of key market dynamics and investment opportunities.

Visiongain anticipates the circuit-breaker as the necessary enabler for the realisation of the Supergrid; this will facilitate greater investment beyond the forecast period. Regionally, spending is much more volatile; different trends, regulatory environments, stages of electrical grid development, political priorities and distributions of fossil and non-fossil fuel resources shape the authorisation and construction of HVDC projects. Within the Asian market, the Chinese submarket dominates, and its HVDC projects will underpin the entire HVDC transmission market for the next five years. The second half of the forecast period will be characterised by projects in Europe and transformation of power systems in emerging economies.

This report will answer questions such as:
• How is the HVDC market evolving?
• Who are the leading HVDC component suppliers and cable manufacturers?
• What are the prospects for each regional market over the next decade?
• What technological developments are expected for the period and what impact will this have on the future marketplace?
• Which sets of components (transmission lines and converter stations) will comprise the largest portions of each regional market?
• What kinds of cabling types characterise the HVDC transmission market?
• What is the cost per km of cabling globally and for the various regions?
