Synchronous Condenser Market worth $811 Million by 2030

Synchronous Condenser Market

The global Synchronous Condenser Market is estimated to grow from USD 661 million in 2022 to USD 811 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 2.6% during the forecast period. Synchronous condensers ensure a stable supply to the transmission grid. They can also supply and absorb reactive power and deliver voltage support and dynamic regulation. In addition, many renewable resources are remotely located and feed power into a single radial line. Synchronous condensers can be installed close to the connection point to strengthen the grid with additional short-circuit power. This improves the fault ride-through capability of the power installation itself and provides additional voltage stability. With renewable power generation on the rise, the market for synchronous condensers is expected to witness substantial growth in the coming years. This trend is expected to gain traction in North America and Europe, where renewable energy is gaining momentum, and the conventional power generation infrastructure is aging and converted to synchronous condensers.

Electrical utilities are expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

By End-User, the Synchronous Condensers Market has been segmented into the electrical utilities and industrial sector segments. They generate, transmit, and distribute electricity from various conventional and renewable sources. Thus, they are the major end users of synchronous condensers. Electrical utilities can install synchronous condensers as stand-alone packages, temporarily operate power plants as synchronous condensers, and convert and retrofit existing and decommissioned power plants to run synchronous condensing facilities. In conventional, combined, or open-cycle plants, a turbine-driven generator is decoupled from the turbine by a clutch and operated as a synchronous condenser to provide reactive power.

North America is expected to be the largest region in the synchronous condenser market

North America is expected to grow fastest in the global synchronous condenser market between 2022–2030, followed by Europe and the Asia Pacific. The market in North America is due to the developments in this region actively focusing on upgrading and replacing aging infrastructures to improve grid reliability and resilience and develop smart electricity networks. The North American power sector is currently facing challenges such as meeting energy-efficiency targets, compliance with federal carbon policies and integrating various distributed generation sources in the grid. Utilities in the region are undergoing a major digital operational transformation. Their operators focus on decentralization, digitization, and decarbonization of power systems. These developments in the power infrastructure are driving the market in North America.
