Market Overview

The market for DC distribution network is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.89% approximately during the forecast period of 2020 – 2025. The appearance of direct current (DC) distribution network in several low-to-high voltage applications is one of the catalysts driving the transformation of the electricity distribution market. Factors such as growth in the renewable energy sector, compatibility with battery storage devices, and advantages over AC distribution, like power-sharing between systems with different frequencies are expected to drive the market over the forecast period. High initial cost and a lot of complexity compared to generic distribution networks are the factors expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.

  • Electric Vehicle (EV) fast charging systems is expected to witness significant demand, owing to the growing environmental concerns and increasing demand for DC infrastructure.
  • The DC distribution networks market is of importance with regards to the future aspects of smart-grids. The particular network market is not that exploited as of now, the reason being the heavy use of three-phase AC distribution networks.
  • Distribution grids must be upgraded. They need to become smart grids so that they remain stable even when electricity generation fluctuates which gives an opportinuty the market.

Key Market Trends

EV Fast Charging Systems to Witness Significant Growth

  • The electric vehicle (EV) charging system segment is booming due to many factors such as increasing adoption of electric vehicles, supportive government policies across the European countries etc. Moreover, oil is considered as a limited resource, and an alternate source of transportation fuel like electricity is not only a smart investment but also an inevitable one.
  • The number of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), including battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), have been rising, which, in turn, expected to drive the DC distribution network market, during the forecast period.
  • The development in power electronics technology, such as microgrids, is mostly connected to distribution networks. In the power industry, the flexible DC distribution network has got attention for its lower integration and construction costs, reduction in energy loses, and higher reliability.
  • However, in the current market scenario, charging stations are yet to become a viable economic investment, due to their lower utilization and relatively high upfront cost, particularly for DC.
  • Therefore, based on the aforementioned factors, electric vehicles fast charging systems is likely to witness significant demand for DC distribution network market over the forecast period.

Growth in the Renewable Energy Sector to Drive the Market

  • The renewable energy generation capacity is growing at a higher rate. Most of the renewable power generation facilities are located at a distance from the load centres. High-voltage DC (HVDC) is essential for remote projects, as cable lengths of approximately 80 km or more are fundamentally compatible with the HVDC transmission technology.
  • Since the HVDC lines are better suited for long-distance power transmission, power transmission companies are increasingly choosing HVDC over HVAC transmission lines, in order to integrate the renewable power capacity.
  • As the conversion of DC voltage to AC voltage, for distribution, may only reduce the efficiency of the system, DC distribution is considered to be the most suitable form of the distribution system, due to its higher efficiency.
