The hardware segment held the largest market share of xx% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Digital utility technology includes communication equipment, electronic equipment, networking equipment, mobile devices, and other electronic devices. Hardware and integrated solutions in digital utility are designed to cater to the needs of users related to utility operations and processes. These solutions scan, record, and maintain asset performance. Technological developments taking place in hardware and extensive use of smart meters, transformers, and other intelligent equipment are contributing to the growth of the segment. Smart grid solutions are sought after by organizations since they enable predictive maintenance, real-time analytics, and effective asset management.

The integrated solutions segment is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Integrated solutions offered in the market include cloud and software services. The software solution assists in digitizing assets, optimizing operations, providing flexibility, and improving reliability.

The transmission and distribution segment is likely to hold a dominant Digital Power Utility Market share and grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period.

By network, the Digital Power Utility Market is segmented into Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution (T&D), Energy Storage, Energy Trading, and Others. The transmission & distribution segment is anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period. Transmission & distribution solutions are widely used across the utility industry owing to increasing emphasis on monitoring and management of electric transmission and distribution systems. The retail segment is estimated to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast years. Data extraction and analytics techniques are widely used for efficient customer management, which is projected to drive the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to exhibit the highest growth rate during the Digital Power Utility Market forecast period.

Region-wise, it is studied across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific is the regional hotspot for the power market, owing to governmental support, numerous incentives, and national targets. In 2020, the primary energy consumption reached 556.63 exajoules all over the world. Major countries in Asia-Pacific have inadequate transmission and distribution (T&D) networks, and hence, electricity is not available in some of the remote and rural areas. To bring electricity to these areas, the countries in the region are investing heavily in building a transmission line network.

According to IEA, in 2020, China was the largest market for power sector investment, supported by increased demand for power in the industrial and commercial sectors. Also, the power transmission and distribution grid of China has been experiencing major upgrades and modifications to make it capable of transmitting higher electricity and coping with future demand. Energy investment in India has grown most rapidly over the past four years, up by more than 10%. In 2020, renewable spending continued to exceed that for fossil fuel-based power generation, supported by tendering of solar PV and wind projects. This is expected to drive the digital power utility market during the forecast period. Also, as of 2020, nuclear power plants of 7,000 MW capacity were under various phases of construction in India.
