"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
A smart grid is a huge complex network consisting of millions of devices with units connected, and this integration results in empowering of the electricity providers and consumers. It also increases the efficiency of the power system while continually monitoring, regulating, and managing the power flow as per the demands of customers. They are considered to be the integration of traditional power grid and information & communication technologies. The smart grid security market continues to evolve with technology and to achieve efficient, reliable, economical, and clean energy distribution. Smart grids make use of different technologies such as advanced components, integrated communication, advanced control methods, improved decision support & interfaces, and measurement & sensing to manage the energy savings through reducing the consumption. Hence, the smart grid security market is expected to provide solutions that help secure the network infrastructure, data, and the devices connected in the grid.
Based on the security type, the market is segmented as application security, endpoint security, database security, and network security. Database security will lead the market owing to the reason of growing cyber-attacks and other threats on the critical infrastructure. The technology advancement and research & development in each part are being performed in the market. Based on the service type, the market is classified as professional and managed. Professional service holds the larger market share due to a lack of security experts in energy & utility companies and the urgent need to address smart grid security threats.
Based on the application, it is divided into smart meters, smart applications, and others. Smart meters will lead the market, which will eliminate the errors in manual meter readings and encourage more efficient use of power resources. The adoption of smart meters has gained pace across many regions such as Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific in recent years. Europe has a maximum penetration of smart meters. Based on by deployment type, the market is classified into cloud and on-premises. The cloud segment is expected to have a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to a high degree of security and level of control. The cloud services enable effective management of a huge number of customers from a single location, which serves as a benefit to the utility company.
The key market driver for the global smart grid security market is energy savings through reducing consumption by use of smart grid networks. The other market drivers include fraud detection, avoided technical losses and reduced balancing cost with the use of data analysis techniques.
The key market restraint for the smart grid security market is the threat of cyber attacks. The number of cyber stacks has risen in recent years, which poses a threat to data stored over the large grid network. Other factors hampering the market growth include the high cost of switching from traditional grid to smart grid as it involves deployment of smart meters and requires changes in transmission and distribution lines.
