Key Market Insights

"Rapid Growth in Distributed Energy Generation expected to uplift the Global Microgrid Market"

The global microgrid market was valued at US$ 23.80 Bn in the year 2018 and expected to reach US$ 59.12 Bn by the year 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 10.7% during the forecast from 2019 to 2027.

Evolutionary changes in operational and regulatory environment of electric utilities along with emergence of distributed generation have opened alluring opportunities for on-site electricity generation. This multiple generation approach increases the reliability of power as well as generation efficiency. Additionally, mission critical facilities, large power consumers, and areas with prolonged outages have great benefits of microgrid. Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has found out that commercial grids are highly vulnerable to cyber-attacks and security threats, therefore microgrid provides a reliable environment to overcome this issue.

As per Blackout Tracker annual Report published by Eaton, power blackouts cost nearly US$ 150 Bn to the global economy and influence almost 14.2 Mn people annually. Poor maintenance, natural calamities, overloading, mall operation of control & protection systems, cyber-attacks, and equipment failure are some of the prime factors responsible for the power blackouts. Consequently, microgrid is a technology boon that we can rely on.

Regional Analysis

"The Asia Pacific dominated the Global Microgrid Market in the year 2018 and seeks Opportunistic Growth during the Forecast Period"

The Asia Pacific held majority of the revenue share in the global microgrid market in 2018. The prime factor attributed to this is increased rural electrification program along with large number of commercial microgrid deployment in the advanced nations. For instance, the total investment on Asian microgrids expected to reach US$ 31 Bn by 2023. Remote microgrid seeks lucrative growth in the Asian countries owing to lack of robust grid infrastructure. However, Japan is majorly focused on grid-tied systems and other distributed generation technology such as Virtual Power Plants (VPP). In addition, the microgrid deployment tracker identifies 575 new microgrid project in the region that depicts the rise of the Asia Pacific market.

Apart from this Latin America assumed to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Among which, Caribbean market is the most opportunistic owing to series of hurricanes along with frequent other natural calamities in the near past. In March 2019, Environmental Defense Fund in Puerto Rico announced to build a low-carbon microgrid in rural areas to beat the power-cut problems during natural disasters.
