Excitation Systems Market Outlook - 2030

The global excitation systems market size was valued at $2.1 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $3.4 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2021 to 2030. Excitation system is used to excite field winding of synchronous machine with the help of DC supply and helps to control the field current reactive power flow of the system and field voltage. There are two types of excitation systems such as static and rotating excitation system. Rotating excitation system is further subdivided into AC and DC excitation systems. It provides stability when starting the synchronous machines. The role of excitation systems in synchronous generator is to maintain a constant terminal voltage and in case of synchronous motor, it is used to maintain constant power factor.

Rapid growth of highly volatile energy generation by means of renewable sources such as hydro, solar, wind, and others is expected to increase the demand for excitation systems in synchronous machines during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific holds a dominant position in 2020 and would continue to maintain the lead over the forecast period.

COVID-19 impact on the market

Lockdown imposed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in temporary ban on import & export and manufacturing & processing activities across various industries and electrical utilities, which decreased the demand for excitation systems from these consumers. In addition, halt in building & construction of new electric utility infrastructures, renewable power plants, grid network, and other power plants, owing to unavailability of workers and increase in demand–supply gap are projected to hamper the market growth during the pandemic period. This resulted in decline in market growth in the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2020. However, the excitation systems market is expected to recover by the last quarter of 2021, as COVID-19 vaccination has begun in various economies across the globe, which is expected to improve the global economy.

Analyst Review

Rapid industrialization and growth of renewable energy sector are the key factors attributed to the leading position of Asia-Pacific. The huge potential in Asia-Pacific to set up renewable energy plants & industries and surge in high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission networks are expected to provide lucrative opportunities to leading excitation systems manufacturers.

Increase in demand for reliable and continuous power supply is the key factor that increased the demand for synchronous machines which in turn is expected to drive the growth of the global excitation systems market during the forecast period. In addition, rise in demand for reactive power compensation and power factor correction from electric utilities and industrial applications is anticipated to fuel the growth of the market during the analyzed time frame. However, complicated design of excitation systems and need for additional components such as slip ring & brushes in case of static excitation systems hamper the growth of the market from 2021 to 2030. On the contrary, rise in investment towards upgradation of old/aged power infrastructure and rapid growth of transmission network are anticipated to provide remunerative opportunities for key players to maintain the pace in the excitation systems market in the upcoming years.

Among the analyzed regions, Asia-Pacific is likely to account for the highest revenue in the market throughout the forecast period, followed by North America, Europe, and LAMEA.
