Static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) is a regulating device prominently used for power factor correction and voltage regulation across electricity transmission networks. India has witnessed large-scale industrialization for a long time. Hence, high-scale industrialization requires high scale measures. Hence, regulating devices are necessary for uninterrupted power supply. Therefore, STATCOM UPS is necessary for the same. STATCOM UPS is also used for power distribution, mining, automobile industry, oil and gas offshore platforms, and long-distance power transmission. UPS STATCOMs also lessen the voltage variations and helps the manufacturers to incur less power-related costs during the manufacturing process.
- Innovative technologies to increase the efficiency of STATCOM UPS are also a significant factor that will boost the India STATCOM UPS market. Due to a multiplication of industries, the need for efficient STATCOM UPS is necessary and this may propel the India STATCOM UPS market to a great extent.
- Frequent harmonic distortion and voltage fluctuations are common in every Indian region. Hence, STATCOM UPS acts as a savior for the same. Heavy industries need undisturbed electricity supply and a small disruption can lead to huge losses. Hence, heavy industries are also expected to aid the growth of the India STATCOM UPS market.
- The Indian Government is also extending its support to the electricity distribution sector through various policies such as the PMJDY (Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana). Hence, this can prove to be a growth generator for the India STATCOM UPS market. Other government initiatives such as Make in India can also prove to be game-changers for the India STATCOM UPS market. The consistently increasing number of steel and mining industries is accelerating the growth rate of India STATCOM UPS market. Open Market policy can also serve as a great growth factor for the India STATCOM UPS market as more individuals make use of this opportunity to enter the industrial sector.
Relaxations in Economic Policies Boost STATCOM UPS Market
The economic liberalization of 1991 accelerated the pace of industrialization in India, setting the manufacturing activities in a notable momentum. This change has been the primary growth driver for the whopping energy demand in the country. However, the inconsistency in the supply of energy and the growing pressure of conserving has led to a high adoption of static synchronous compensator STATCOM UPS. The units help in the regulation of voltage and correction of power factor, both of which are essential to the smooth functioning of manufacturing units.
A research report published by Transparency Market Research suggests that the opportunity in the India STATCOM UPS market will be worth US$113.9 mn by 2024 from US$27 mn in 2014, expanding at an impressive CAGR of 16.0% from 2016 to 2024. The rise in the India STATCOM UPS market will be due to the power deficit in the country and the need to save on overall energy consumption.
IGBT-Based STATCOM UPS to Lead Market
Analysts predict that the ability of STATCOM UPS units to manage voltage fluctuations and harmonic distortions seen in power supplies will boost their demand amongst various industries. For instance, utilities are deploying STATCOM for compensating refining power factor and reactive power in the transmission and distribution network.
The most popular product in the overall market is the insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) STATCOM UPS. By the end of 2024, this product segment is anticipated to hold a share of 88.8% in the India STATCOM UPS market from 78.0% in 2014. The impressive growth of IGBT-based STATCOM UPS will be due to its increasing usage in real and reactive power. Furthermore, it is also being acknowledged as an acceptable technology across various industrial platforms.
Government Initiatives Make a Big Impact
STATCOM UPS systems are used for a wide range of applications such as offshore oil and gas, power distribution, power transmission, steel manufacturing, mining, and automobile manufacturing. The report suggests that long distance power transmission and power substations are significant users of STATCOM UPS as the Indian government is pumping in money to improve power transmission and distribution channels across the country. Furthermore, initiatives such as Make in India will also push the manufacturing movement in India, thereby creating a positive impact on the growth of the India STATCOM UPS market.
The presence of heavy industries such as mining and steel industries is propelling the demand for STATCOM UPS in the eastern and western states of India. Though these regions have been using static VAR compensator (SVC) UPS technology for regulating voltages and power factor correction, they are making a gradual shift towards STATCOM UPS due to the reliable and stable power solutions it offers.
