The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global synchrophasors market for 2017-2021. Technavio presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources. The analysts have presented the various facets of the market with a particular focus on identifying the key industry influencers.
Synchronized data has become more and more attractive for power engineers as it provides a wide area snapshot of the grid in real time, which is useful in mitigating blackouts and learning about the behavior of the grid, thus making the grid more reliable. This is one of the major reasons due to which the governments of several nations provide grants to encourage synchrophasor installations.

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global synchrophasors market:
Increasing need for reducing grid outages
The aging infrastructure, the rise in population, and an increased demand on power resources have increased the strain on the infrastructure causing power outages. The exhibit below represents the year-over-year analysis of the number of outages in the US between 2009-2016 caused by inclement weather, equipment failure, maintenance shutdown, load-shedding, vandalism, and cyber-attacks.
Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead smart grid research analyst at Technavio, says, “Power outages not only cause inconvenience to the end-users, but they also lead to revenue loss for the utilities, impede emergency services, and jeopardize national security, as it may compromise the communication systems. Although utilities are trying to adopt and implement smart grid technologies to identify technical snags in the power distribution network faster and promptly restore power, outages do occur, and power services are interrupted.”
Rise in installed capacity of renewable energy
Fossil fuels remain the principal source of power generation worldwide; however, the use of renewable energy sources are projected to grow rapidly. Energy insecurities have led governments worldwide to focus on the alternate source of power for a sustainable future. The rising concerns of carbon emission from power plants have made the utilities switch to natural gas and renewable sources for electricity generation.
“The demand and supply of electricity are essential in maintaining the stability of the grid. As wind and solar energy sources are intermittent in nature, high reliance on them can undermine the stability of the grid. This situation has compelled grid operators to install technologies, which can increase the power generation from renewables without compromising system reliability,” adds Thanikachalam.
Government support to enhance grid reliability
Increasing the grid reliability, enhancing the efficiency, and making the grid secure have been the top priority of the government in the energy sector. This has made the government agencies put in a lot of efforts and had led to numerous collaboration with various industry leaders to accomplish these governmental priorities. Several demonstrations and pilot programs have been executed by various governments across the globe to test new technologies, which can help improve grid reliability.
