Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Market

Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Market

Global Forecast & Analysis (2013 - 2018)

Dublin, Oct. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jm5tc7/flexible_ac) has announced
the addition of the "Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Market by
Compensation (Shunt, Series, Combined), Component (Thyristors, Capacitor
Banks, Reactors), Application, Industry Vertical (Electric Utilities, Steel,
Mining), Global Forecast & Analysis (2013 - 2018)" report to their offering.

The Overall FACTS Market Is Projected To Reach $1,386.01 Million By 2018 From
The $912.85 Million That It Accounted For In 2012, At A CAGR Of 7.23% From
2013 To 2018.

The ever increasing requirement of high power supply quality and high network
reliability for applications such as electric utilities, steel industry and
mining is expected to drive the global demand of FACTS devices from 2013 to
2018. In addition, the upgrade and replacement of power infrastructure in
developed economies such as Americas and Europe, and the power capacity
addition in developing regions such as APAC and ROW are also expected to play
a crucial role in the growth of FACTS market.

The global Flexible AC Transmission System market can be majorly divided into
three compensation types, namely shunt, series, combined series, and shunt
connected. Shunt compensation consists of two devices: Static Var Compensator
(SVC) and Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM); Series compensation is
made up of Fixed Series Capacitor (FSC) and Thyristor Controlled Series
Capacitor (TCSC); and combined series and shunt connected compensation
consists of Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) and Interline Power Flow
controller (IPFC).

This report also focuses on the components used in FACTS devices, such as
power electronic devices, thyristors, reactors, capacitor banks, switchgear,
protection and control systems,and so on. Steady state applications and
dynamic applications of Flexible AC Transmission System devices such as
voltage control, power flow balancing, transient stability, voltage stability,
power oscillations damping, and sub synchronous resonance mitigation are also
discussed in the report.

The Flexible AC Transmission System market is also analyzed on the basis of
end user applications that include electric utilities, steel industry, mining,
and others (wind power, railways). The global market by geography is segmented
by various geographic regions such as Americas, Europe, APAC and ROW. The
regional market has also been segmented by different countries. Each of the
mentioned regions is further segmented by compensation type and industry
verticals. Apart from market segmentation, the report also includes the cost
and performance analysis of various FACTS devices such as SVC, STATCOM, FSC,
and TCSC.

In this report, the in-depth analysis of global market by enveloping all major
market segments with complete qualitative analysis at each and every aspect,is
given, for the forecast period from 2013 to 2018. This report also examines
the market dynamics of FACTS market through five headings: drivers,
restraints, opportunities, burning issues and winning imperatives. The
detailed Porter's five force analysis for the global market is also given in
the report,which gives the understanding of all the contributing factors that
affect the market; and their impact on its growth.

The company profiles' of all the major players in the Flexible AC Transmission
System market are added in the report to give a broader picture of the
competition scenario in this market. The report also includes a competitive
landscape segment that covers all key growth strategies of major players in
the market such as ABB, Alstom, Siemens, Mitsubishi Electric, General
Electric, American Superconductor Corporation, and Toshiba among many others.
The Competitive landscape includes market share analysis, mergers and
acquisitions, partnerships, new product developments, and the key growth
strategies of each player.
