Shunt Reactor Market Surging

  • The Internet of Things and smart grid projects are expected to play a crucial role in the growth of the global shunt reactor market.
  • Increasing number of infrastructure-related projects is expected to drive growth.
  • North America accounted a large share in the global shunt reactor market.

According to a recent market report published by Future Market Insights titled, “Shunt Reactor Market: Global Industry Trend Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016–2026” the global shunt reactor market was valued at $2 billion in 2015, and is expected to register a CAGR of 8.6% from 2016 to 2026. Emergence of micro grids and interconnection of local and regional grids are the major factors expected to drive the growth of the global market for shunt reactor.

Shunt reactors are mainly used in electrical networks to control and stabilize voltage fluctuations along the distribution line and absorb the reactive power. Shunt reactors can also be used in simple AC lines as these lines generate more than 20 times the reactive power than the overhead lines. Shunt reactors are mainly used by the power supply companies operating within a specified region.

Emergence of IoT and smart grid projects is expected to play a crucial role in the growth of the global shunt reactor market. Deployment of new technology platform-enabled infrastructure has resulted in development of smart grids, especially in developed countries. Also, governments across the world are particularly investing in infrastructure projects, in order to increase their economic growth. Energy-related projects are the essential part of infrastructure, hence increasing number of infrastructure-related projects is consequently expected to drive the growth of the global shunt reactor market.

The governments across the world are focusing on renewable energy projects, as they are environment friendly and can provide long-term sustainable solutions. Under the global energy efficiency programs, most of the governments across the globe have initiated regulations, policies and plans to set up energy plants to harness renewable sources of energy, such as wind and solar. This is placing new demand for transmission and distribution networks. The global shunt reactor market is witnessing cascading effects of these developments.
