Series Compensation, Static VAR Compensators, Static Synchronous Compensators, and Distributed SVC/STATCOMs: Global Market Analysis
and Forecasts

Flexible alternating current transmission system (FACTS) technologies have evolved significantly during the past 40 years. Complex engineered solutions such as static VAR compensators (SVCs) and static synchronous compensators (STATCOMs) have been developed to address emerging local transmission grid conditions and improve the reliability and stability of the high-voltage (HV) transmission grid. New utility-scale generation resources like wind farms and large solar parks now compete with traditional coal, gas, and nuclear generation plants in global markets, creating new transmission grid problems and opportunities.

Since AC transmission systems are prevalent in the transmission industry, the installation of FACTS solutions will continue, both to replace existing aging infrastructure and to support the trouble-free interconnection of wind and renewable generation. FACTS technologies can be used to creatively solve demanding problems in transmission all over the world. Growth in electricity demand, the need to mitigate voltage drops over long-haul transmission lines, population growth, and the proliferation of wind and solar generation resources are just a few of the drivers for the global increase in FACTS installations. Navigant Research forecasts that global cumulative FACTS installation revenue will amount to $42 billion between 2014 and 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for FACTS technologies. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including trends, drivers, challenges, opportunities, and regulatory factors, related to FACTS solutions. Global market forecasts for the installation of voltage support and reactive power correction (megavolt-ampere reactive, or MVAR) and revenue, segmented by region, technology, and scenario, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key technologies associated with FACTS solutions, as well as the FACTS roadmap and competitive landscape.
