The Worldwide Data Center Substation Industry is Expected to Reach $12.8 Billion by 2027
DUBLIN, June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Global Data Center Substation Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Component, By Voltage Type, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2021-2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Global Data Center Substation Market size is expected to reach $12.8 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 5.5% CAGR during the forecast period.
In addition, a substation is a power network structure that connects transmission lines and distribution feeders with circuit breakers or switches and busbars. This enables the network's power flow to be controlled, as well as general switching procedures for maintenance. The voltage in transmission lines is mostly stepped up or down in these confined zones to a certain level suited for the distribution system.
Moreover, increased data volumes handled by data centers have resulted from the increased use of social media and a surge in online video content streaming, prompting organizations to invest in reliable and dedicated data centers to minimize data loss and ensure business continuity, energy transmission and distribution, and security. As a result of the expansion of data centers, the demand for electricity to power them has skyrocketed.
Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic had a large-scale impact on businesses around the world, posing numerous hurdles in 2020, the data center substation market continued to grow. The exponential surge in data generation and consumption by individuals and businesses during the pandemic fueled the demand for data storage, leading in an increase in the number of dependable and efficient data centers.
With the advent of work-from-home jobs, data centers are becoming computational hubs for a variety of businesses and end users around the world. As a result of the unprecedented increase in data output and the need to improve data center performance, the demand for new data centers and the restoration of old ones has risen. As a result, in the next few years, a surge in the number of data center restoration and building projects is projected to generate growth opportunities for the data center substation market.
The massive increase in the number of data centers round the world
From the servers in SMEs to the organization data centers supporting large enterprise and the plantations running cloud computing services hosted by several top technology companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Google, data centers have become an increasingly important part of the modern economy.
In addition, different end users have evolved to separate themselves with various data center requirements in the wake of a globally snowballing digital economy and the data center sector, which is always tasked with staying ahead of customers' IT roadmaps. The demand for data storage is also expanding as big data analytics and cloud-based services, like online content such as movies, apps, videos, and social media, become more popular.
Digital substations contribute to lower maintenance costs and a smaller environmental footprint while extending asset life. Fiber optic connections are used to connect these devices to control panels, removing the requirement for copper control lines. For example, Hitachi ABB Power Grids released its smart digital substation product in March 2021, which combines the latest innovations in digital substation technology with Hitachi's Lumada Asset Performance Management solution's prescriptive, predictive, and prognostic capabilities.
In addition to increasing reliability, integrating new types of clean energy, and delivering energy services in better and safer ways, smart digital substations are essential for navigating the change to more distribute and less predictable renewable power sources.
Need for high initial investment
In order to shift to an on-site power supply, data centers must overcome a number of challenges. The initial investment required for on-site energy is frequently the most significant obstacle for businesses. In the near term, moving power on site costs a lot of money and resources, which eventually discourage many businesses to embrace data center substation.
In addition, fuel prices fluctuate year to year, making long-term planning difficult, thereby creating uncertainty among the company's leadership about whether to adopt these systems or not. When constructing a data center, there are various variables to consider. Engineering, permits, and permissions are all taken into account, as are power systems, generators with enclosures, conduit and cabling for generators, data center lighting, lighting protection, HVAC, fire suppression, and other issues.
