HVDC Transmission Market Segmentation:

Bulk power transmission to lead the HVDC transmission market during the forecast period.

HVDC systems are preferred over conventional AC lines for transmitting bulk power across long distances due to advantages such as lower power loss and the ability to control transmission accurately with respect to power level as well as direction. Moreover, the growing global population and increasing residential and commercial developments are expected to create a surge in demand for electricity, thereby driving the market growth for HVDC systems in urban areas.

LCC-based transmission to account for the largest share of the HVDC transmission market from 2023 to 2028.

In LCC, power transmission is done through thyristor valves. Commutation can be defined as the transfer of direct current (DC) from one thyristor valve to another valve in the same row. Commutation is carried out by a synchronous voltage source (AC system voltage) in LCC. An LCC station is ideal for high-power, long-distance transmissions as it reduces power losses in an HVDC transmission system. The growing need to transmit electricity over longer distances with lower losses is a major factor driving the market growth for LCC technology.
