Flexible AC Transmission System Market Overview:
Flexible AC Transmission System Market was valued at $508 million in 2016, and is estimated to reach $1,034 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2017 to 2023. Flexible AC transmission system provide dynamic reactive power support, increases system stability, and control real & reactive power. This ensures efficient machine operation and enhances system utilization. The global flexible AC transmission system market is expected to witness significant growth rate, due to the advancement of electric power transmission system across the developed and the developing regions, including North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
The Asia-Pacific flexible AC transmission system market is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to increase in government expenditure to build smart grids and increase in investment on electricity generation by renewable energy resources. In addition, rise in investments in high speed trains from the developing countries such as China, India, and Japan is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market expansion.
Increase in demand for controllability of power system in the industries such as oil & gas, railways, and electric utility fuels the demand for flexible AC transmission system in the market. However, LAMEA is expected to account for the least share in the global market as compared to other regions, due to uniform smartphone penetration across Latin America. Furthermore, Middle East and Africa are expected to gain traction due to slow adoption of flexible AC transmission system across industry verticals such as manufacturing, railways, and renewable energy industries. However, high initial cost of installation is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
