Based on the module, the global digital substation market can be segmented into hardware, fiber optic communication network, and SCADA. The hardware segments dominate the global digital substation market owing to the presence of transformers, protective relays, and other critical hardware used in the substation. Based on the type of substation the global digital substation market can be segmented into transmission and distribution. The distribution segment holds the largest market share owing to the increasing demand to make electricity reach difficult locations.

Based on the voltage, the global digital substation market can be segmented into up to 220V, 220V-550V, above 550V. The 220V is the required voltage for the residential locations, 220V holds the largest market share and this trend is set to continue during the given forecast period. Based on the industry the global digital substation market can be segmented into utilities, oil & gas, transportation, and others. The utility sector will dominate the market owing to the increasing number of new grids being set up in a number of countries.

The key market driver for the global digital substation market is the ongoing replacement of the aged power distribution and transmission networks in major countries across the globe. Also, the increase in demand for electricity with a growing need to curb the carbon emissions has seen renewable sources being increasingly used for power generation, which has seen new grids to come up.

Key market restraint for the global digital substation market is the high capital cost involved in the installation of the digital substations. The regular maintenance required by these substations to ensure proper working of the equipment can also hinder the growth of the global digital substation market.
