Additional InformationGlobalData, the industry analysis specialist, has released its latest research, “Smart Grid Vendor Landscape Analysis - Strategic Activity Analysis and Outlook to 2015”, that provides a detailed analysis of the strategic activities in global smart grid markets in 2010 and 2011 and an outlook for the period 2012-2015. The report provides the current scenario and an outlook on strategic activities and the competitive landscape at global level for the technologies such as advanced metering, electric vehicle infrastructure, advanced substation, power grid network communication, power grid high voltage cabling, power grid software application, power grid cyber security and power grid monitoring and control. The report also discusses various contracts and projects initiated by the governments across the globe, and covers key financing activities such as mergers, acquisitions and partnerships among the key vendors in the aforementioned industries. Sections of the report are dedicated to analysis of the competitive scenario among global vendors of smart grid technologies.
This report is formed using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GlobalData’s team of industry experts.
Mergers and Acquisitions in Cyber Security Industry for Power Grid are expected to Rise During the Period 2012-2015
Mergers and acquisitions are expected to increase among vendors in the cyber security industry for power grid applications. The cyber security industry is a research oriented industry that requires sustained flow of capital to support its product development efforts. This becomes difficult for the vendors in this industry as most are either small or medium sized. These players are expecting large scale investments from major players such as General Electric Company and Cisco Systems in order to compete effectively in the market. This will lead to an increase in the number of acquisitions in the global cyber security industry for power grids during the period 2012-2015.
Product Launches by Vendors in Global Advanced Metering Infrastructure Industry will be Region Specific during the period 2012-2015
Product launches in the global industry for advanced metering infrastructure will be focused on specific regions during the period 2012-2015. The deployment of smart meters is being guided by the regulations and standards pertaining to the nation in which they are deployed. The vendors of advanced metering will need to develop products and solutions that comply with the regional standards if they wish to penetrate these markets. Customization of product was undertaken by Elster when it launched a three-phase meter to cater to utilities in Latin American nations. The trend will continue during 2012-2015 as nations in Asia-Pacifc, Eastern Europe and Latin America come up with plans to deploy smart meters.
No Single Player will have Majority in Electric Vehicle Charging Station Market during 2012-2015
Within the Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations industry various regional players have a major presence across the globe. In recent years, the North American region was dominated by Coulomb Technologies and Ecotality, whereas the European region was dominated by the presence of Elektromotive. In the Asia Pacific region no single vendor occupies a major market share. Various players in EV charging stations industry have significant market shares in one region but have no or minor presence in other regions. Therefore, the presence of various players in the EV charging station industry will restrict any single player from dominating the global market during 2012-2015.
Meter Data Management is expected to Emerge as a Key Technology in Power Grid Software Industry for period 2012-2015
Meter data management technology is expected to emerge as key smart grid technology for the period 2012-2015. In 2011, the number of contracts and projects awarded for the demand response, energy management system and outage management system are higher than compared with the meter data management system. The scenario is expected to change with a number of contracts for these technologies reducing due to saturation of the markets. Utilities will require the deployment of a meter data management system alongside or after the deployment of smart meter in order to manage the data from the smart meters. Many utilities such as Interstate Power and Light and the City of Georgetown have planned to deploy meter data management along with the deployment of smart meter.
Synchrophasors to Drive the Growth in Strategic Activities in the Global Market for Smart Grid Monitoring and Control Systems during 2012-2015
Synchrophasors is expected to emerge as a leading technology in global smart grid monitoring and control system industry for the period 2012-2015. Key nations such as the US and China are expected to increase the number of contracts awarded to the vendors of synchrophasors. The grant provided by the US government for the synchrophasors deployment, will cause an increased number of strategic activities in the synchrophasors industry. The vendors related to the synchrophasors industry are expected to launch new and enhanced products in order to meet the requirement of the utilities. Manufacturers of synchrophasors are expected to strengthen their position in the industry through acquisitions and partnerships with vendors that have already gained expertise in synchrophasors technology.
