The Distribution automation market is dominated by a few major players that have a wide regional presence. The leading players in the distribution automation market are ABB (Switzerland), Schneider Electric (France), Siemens (Germany), Eaton (Ireland) and General Electric Company (US).
Field devices, by offering, expected to be second largest market from 2024 to 2029
The distribution automation market, by offering, is bifurcated into field devices, software and services. The software segment is expected to second largest segment during the forecast period. Software assists grid operators in increasing the reliability and efficiency of grid operations. In the realm of Distribution Automation for electricity, software plays a vital role, offering diverse applications aimed at bolstering the operational efficiency of distribution power systems.
These software solutions empower utility companies to gather, automate, scrutinize, and refine data, thereby enhancing the efficacy of their distribution networks. Specifically designed for distribution automation systems, these software components furnish real-time operational alerts concerning various grid elements, such as fault detectors, voltage regulators, capacitor controllers, and switches. This data is then shared with other intelligent field devices, and algorithms integrate it with transmission systems to optimize distribution system performance.
Wireless, by communication technology expected to be second largest market from 2024 to 2029
The distribution automation market, by communication technology, is segmented into wired and wireless. The wireless segment is expected to second largest segment during the forecast period. Wireless radio technologies like CDMA are employed in smart grids for distribution automation. These technologies offer cost-effectiveness and durability, rendering them ideal for small-scale distribution automation systems (DAS), especially in areas where setting up a communication network is difficult. Wireless communication is well-suited for feeder reconfiguration, facilitating system monitoring and control from the substation to the customer's meter. This serves various purposes, including enhancing system reliability, minimizing power losses, and handling voltage fluctuations.
Private utilities, by utility, expected to be fastest market from 2024 to 2029
The distribution automation market, by utility, is bifurcated into public utilities and private utilities. The private utilities segment is expected to be the fastest market during the forecast period. Privatizing electricity generation and distribution has been discussed in a number of nations, with various techniques taken to increase competition and improve sector efficiency. Private utilities are investing in technologies like IoT and 5G, which enable more robust and real-time data sharing, allowing them to make data-driven decisions to meet rising energy demand.
