Flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.

Flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) is a new integrated concept based on power-electronic based convertor, which enhances the reliability, stability, and power quality of AC transmission system. FACTS offers control to one or more AC transmission systems by incorporating a power electronic based system & other static equipment. The surging demand for superior quality high power & voltage and high network consistency from various industries such as electric utilities, railways, and oil & gas is the key driving factor of flexible AC transmission system market. The modern high speed rail traction systems must ensure that the supply voltages are stable and do not sag, thus the incorporation of FACTS ensures adequate power quality with stable voltages. For instance, National High Speed Rail Corporation Ltd. is commencing a high speed train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, with a total corridor length of around 510 km. The initiation of such high speed train projects in the developing countries is expected to provide ample opportunities for the growth of flexible AC transmission system in the global market.

FACTS offers solutions to relieve the power transmission bottlenecks quickly, thereby, minimizing the risk for complete blackouts. This system also integrates renewable energy sources like wind power into the main stream power grids. In addition to this, FACTS plays a major role in improving power quality, and ensuring efficient energy utilization & management in the smart grid systems. The surging adoption of smart grid systems, owing to the increasing demand for renewable energy is anticipated to elevate the adoption of flexible AC transmission system. However, the high cost associated with the installation of FACTS is the major factor impeding the growth of flexible AC transmission system market. On the other hand, increasing global population, and surging demand for renewable energy sources due to the unavailability of fossil fuels are expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the leading manufactures active in flexible AC transmission system market.
