Static VAR Compensator Market Outlook - 2030

The global static VAR compensator market size was valued at $758.2 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $1,135.4 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2030. Parallel combination of controlled reactor and shunt capacitor that is fixed forms the assembly for static VAR compensator. Static VAR compensator is used to modify the output of inductive current that further manages bus voltage factor. In addition, this device is capable of reducing the reactive power across extended ranges that further shows zero time delay.        

The growing population has surged the demand for a wide range of consumer goods, which, in turn, has led the industrial manufacturing sectors to witness rapid growth. For instance, according to a report published by Trading Economics, the industrial production in India rosy by 13.6% year-on-year in June 2021, owing to increased demand for basic metals, refined petroleum products, motor vehicles, and other advanced materials. These large-scale industries, especially steel industries experience huge power fluctuations that hamper both the ongoing operations and equipment. A static VAR compensator is a set of electrical devices that stabilizes voltage output to maintain specific voltage parameters required for industrial applications. This has made the key large-scale industrial sectors, such as steel, cement, power utility, and others, use static VAR compensators for voltage compensation purposes. All these factors collectively surge the demand for static VAR compensator, thereby augmenting the global market growth.

However, static VAR compensators comprise one or more banks of fixed shunt reactors and capacitors such as thyristor controlled reactor (TCR), thyristor switched capacitor (TSC), mechanically switched reactors or capacitors, harmonic filters, and others. The combination of these equipment makes static VAR compensator expensive for small industries. This factor is expected to restrain the growth of the static VAR compensator market during the forecast period. 

On the contrary, the advanced digital control algorithm for the SVC system developed by General Electronics represents the latest design methodology by using a powerful model-based design approach. It is built by using a core library of complex control algorithms with automated code generation for all testing and verification stages. It also consists of a built-in event logger with automated time stamping of 1-millisecond resolution and can be remotely accessed via the internet using a secured protocol. This model-based advanced digital control algorithm for the SVC system has already revolutionized the approach for critical control software in power grids, aviation, renewable energy, and other sectors. Thus, the use of advance digital control SVC systems with automated control features is anticipated to open up new sales opportunities in the market.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Static Var Compensator Market

  • The novel coronavirus led to an incomparable global pandemic that spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe. 
  • The static VAR compensator market has been negatively impacted due to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, owing to its dependence on electric utility, railways, steel and metal, mining, heavy industrial, oil and gas, and other sectors. 
  • According to a report published by the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the large-scale manufacturing industry witnessed 20% decline in production in March 2020 as compared to March 2019 while profits declined by 66%. Several companies have either shut down or minimized their operations due to the risk of infections among the workforce where static VAR compensators are used for voltage stabilization purposes. This has temporarily hampered the growth of the static VAR compensator market amid the COVID-19 period. 
  • In addition, the falling income of customers and travel restrictions imposed by both local and government bodies for running special trains on selected routes has led to a contraction of the demand for static VAR compensators among railways. According to a report published by Energy and Economic Growth Survey, the oil & gas sector is among the hardest hit sector with an average contraction of -2.8% in 2020. This has decreased the demand for static VAR compensator for voltage compensation applications in the oil and gas sector. In addition, around 180 countries have temporarily stopped the trade of unnecessary products, which, in turn, has hampered the demand-supply chain of static VAR compensators amid the COVID-19 situation.
