The global utility asset management market size stood at USD 3.31 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to attain USD 6.20 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period.

Asset management (AM) services are a combination of various hardware, software, tools, and solutions deployed to increase productivity and lower maintenance requirements in facilities. These systems widely incorporate prevention, prediction, and condition-based approach to enable electric utilities to monitor and track performance for continuous evaluation. The solution is based on data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to mitigate the risk of electrical system failures and plan replacement/repair operations strategically to enhance the unit’s efficiency.

Halt in Heavy-duty Operations amid COVID-19 Pandemic May Hamper Growth

The sudden spread of COVID-19 or coronavirus, a global crisis, has substantially affected different nations. Many countries have adopted strict measures to combat the viral infection and limit its human to human spread by shutting down various commercial and industrial operations. Consequently, the utility asset management industry has also been reasonably affected by the repercussions of this global turmoil.

Additionally, the halt in various heavy-duty end-user operations such as manufacturing industries, processing facilities, and temporary closure of large commercial offices has led to an unprecedented decline in the demand for electricity. This has left electric utilities with significant cash deficits, making them incapable of maintaining their operational capabilities with feasible incomes.

Growing Measures to Mitigate Power Outage Problems is a Current Trend

Several countries across the globe have observed a significant spike in the number of power cuts caused by various reasons deteriorating operations. Numerous problems due to erratic human decisions and natural calamities have led different public and private grid owners/operators to adopt stringent actions like utility asset management to diminish the impact.

For instance, in April 2019, the Mexican state-owned utility company, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), stated that the Yucatán peninsula territory of the country was stuck with a second power outage in days after a first one. The company also reported a fire outbreak caused beneath the transmission lines leaving millions of its customers without electricity.

Development of Advanced Solutions through Partnerships Among Players is a Prominent Trend

Various utility asset management market players are regularly concentrating on growing their products & solutions offerings, along with expanding their portfolios to cater to a wide range of customers. Additionally, organizations are also focusing on collaborative hardware and software development to introduce new utility asset management solutions to analyze complex operational data.

For example, in July 2018, General Electric or GE joined forces with Microsoft to augment the adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) across different verticals and expand the digital transformation of industries. The partnership was labeled as the largest one between two organizations and targets to adjoin the former’s Predix portfolio and Microsoft’s Azure Data & Analytics and Azure IoT for enhanced results.


Rapidly Increasing Energy Demand & Adoption of Green Energy Technology will Propel Growth

The energy consumption across the world has observed a steep increase over the years due to the continually growing residential and commercial infrastructures. Subsequently, various nations have observed a tremendous rise in the deployment of multiple power generation techniques to serve the growing demand. It would further drive the companies to undertake different utility asset management technologies to transfer the produced energy efficiently.

  • For example, in March 2020, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) reported that the overall renewable capacity totaled over 2.53 terawatt (TW) across the globe in 2019, exhibiting 175.8 GW of annual increase from 2.36 TW in 2018.

Increasing Concerns to Upgrade Long-standing Transmission & Distribution Networks to Boost Growth

A positive outlook from national governments to invest and develop the aging infrastructure and support the extension of smart grid technologies is set to favor the utility asset management market growth. Furthermore, numerous public and private entities are readily adopting techniques such as outage management, distribution management, asset management, and peak load management, which is likely to augment the market.

  • For instance, in March 2019, the China Southern Power Grid announced to invest about USD 24.6 billion between 2018 and 2022 to enhance power grids with better disaster prevention capacity. The state-owned utility also aims to diminish the annual power outage durations across various cities to balance the growing demand.


Requirement of Significant Capital & High Technical Expertise May Hinder Growth

The capital intensive nature of advanced technology operations and high risks associated with maintaining the needed equipment for longer durations without optimum proficiency may hamper the utility asset management market growth. Additionally, the lack of correct technical knowledge while installing the expensive equipment and joining the hardware, coupled with inaccuracies in prioritizing the operational layouts, can significantly impact the efficiency of the system, thereby leading to constrained repair durations and over maintenance harms.


By Type Analysis

Public Utility Division is Anticipated to Account For Significant Share Over the Forecast Period

Based on type, the global utility asset management market can be bifurcated into public utility and private utility. The existence of long-standing transmission & distribution setups by different national utility companies, coupled with the increasing cases of system malfunctions in the networks, is set to favor the growth of the public utility segment.

Additionally, the private utility segment is projected to observe significant expansion owing to the growing investments by non-government organizations to place new infrastructures to support different power generation technologies.
