Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101493 | Status : Ongoing



The power demand has been rising continuously in recent years in the developed and the developing countries and is expected to continue growing during the forecast period. The static var compensators are the devices which are mainly used to control the voltage fluctuations taking place in the transmission lines and also control the power supply quality in the large industrial sectors. Static var compensators also help in improving active power oscillations by modulating the amplitude of the voltage.

The Static var compensators are mainly used in industrial sectors to avoid any voltage fluctuations. In recent years the adoption of the static var compensators has increased in the railway's sector, in power infrastructure sector to replace the existing grids, and in the upcoming solar and wind power stations. The growth of the industrial sector, railways and the adoption of the renewable energy on a large scale are the factors which will drive the growth of the global static var compensator market in the given forecast period.   

Based on its type, the global static var compensator market can be segmented into thyristor-based svc and magnetically controlled reactor (MCR based) svc. The magnetically controlled reactor svc segment will dominate the market during the given forecast period owing to its increasing adoption due to the advantages such as high reliability, small dimension, ability to sustain instantaneous voltages and avoid generator breaking.
