A smart grid is primarily a two-way communication of electricity data, instead of one-sided flow. It enables real-time data collection of electricity supply and demand during the transmission and distribution process, which provides monitoring, generation, consumption and maintenance more efficient and reliable. Renewable energy sources are increasing dramatically, which is beneficial in terms of availability, cost, emissions, and adaptability. Hence, the integration of renewable energy into the grid is managed by a smart grid which helps to optimize the plant efficiency and reliability. It enables real-time monitoring and control of the power system as well as helps in reducing AT&C losses, demand response and demand-side management, outage management, power quality management, smart home energy system. Hence, smart grid technology brings efficiency and sustainability in meeting the growing electricity demand with reliability and the best of quality.

The smart grid market is segmented into components, solutions, end-user, and geography. Based on the component, the market is bifurcated into solutions and services. Based on the solution, the market is divided into advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), smart grid distribution management, smart grid communications, smart grid network management, substation automation, smart grid security, and others. Based on end-user, the market is segmented into residential, commercial, industrial, and utility.
