The global smart grid market size was valued at USD 43.1 billion in 2022 and it is expected that the smart grid industry will reach USD 103.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 19.1% from 2022 to 2027. The market growth is attributed to the ongoing technological advancements, high demand for renewable energy sources in power generation, stringent government policies and rapidly changing trends in the smart grid market.

It was observed that the North American and European regions have been the early adopters of smart grid technology due to the presence of advanced technology and increased expenditure on IT infrastructure. Other regions like APAC, Latin America, and the Middle East are also experiencing significant growth in recent years. In 2022, the Asia Pacific region dominated the smart grid market with nearly 39.1%. While the other regions showed almost similar growth. However, the initial phase of the smart grid is capital-intensive and is one of the major factors that might hinder the growth of the smart grid market.
