Global subsea power grid systems market is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to increasing oil & gas exploration activities in major off-shore locations. Regular electric power supply is essential to continue operations in such deep water locations. Depletion of on-shore oil & gas reserves have led to rising off–shore reserves exploration, subsequently creating demand for subsea power grid systems. Rapid sub-sea infrastructural development in order to cater increasing off-shore exploration activities has increased the power demand in the region and is further expected to drive the subsea power grid systems market over the forecast period. Depletion of conventional fossil fuel reserves has led to increasing oil & gas exploration activities in deep waters across the globe. Technologically advanced equipments are being utilized for oil & gas exploration and electricity requirements for these equipments are also massive. Subsea power grid industry is expected to display significant growth over coming seven years on account of accelerating oil exploration activities in Latin America & Africa. Renewable energy development in off shore locations and energy demand from emerging economies such as India and China are increasing day by day, leading to rising electricity production from new energy sources. Unconventional oil & gas based energy generation requires compressors, pumps, steam and CO2 for start of production, thus creating product demand. New fields need to be explored extensively to fulfill primary energy demand which has increased off shore exploration activities. Depleted reserves require higher amounts of energy for pumping and compression pressure. Installation of subsea power grid systems results in reduced emissions and increased efficiency. These factors are expected to drive subsea power grid market. However, high operational risks and technological issues are expected to hamper industry growth over coming seven years. Limitations such as transmission losses during long distance power transmission are also expected to hinder the market over next seven years.
Subsea power grid systems market can be segmented on the basis of various components utilized in the systems which create a power generation base. Based on the type of work, market can be categorized as variable speed drives, subsea transformers and switchgears. Market can also be categorized on the basis of power generation source into wind power generation, tidal & wave energy and captive power; all these sources are primary energy sources in off shore locations.
Regional segmentation includes major geographic areas such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Central & South America. North America is expected to witness moderate market growth, owing to rising focus on shale reserves exploration in the region. European market is slated to grow due to rising investment in prospective off shore locations such as Norway along with increasing initiatives taken by the government for power generation from wind energy. CSA and MEA regions are anticipated to display huge growth over the forecast period, owing to increasing deep water oil & gas exploration activities in the regions. Increasing energy demand in Asia Pacific region coupled with large shore area is expected to influence the regional demand positively.
Market participants are carrying out R&D activities to implement production processes that reduce production costs. They are also trying to produce systems with extended life span and reduced maintenance costs. Market participants are installing integrated condition monitoring systems to monitor reliability and predict hazardous situations to avoid unexpected shut downs and evaluate changes. They are also employing promotional strategies to penetrate into low penetrated markets. These initiatives by numerous market players are slated to boost product demand over the forecast period.
