COVID-19 Impact on the Global Digital Utility Market

COVID-19 has caused both a financial and a medical crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has strained the global healthcare system, and developed countries are expected to experience an economic downturn. The COVID-19 outbreak was positive for the digital utility market. The ability to obtain digital utility services online has proven useful for users, raised demand, and drove expansion in the entire digital utility business.

Global Digital Utility Market Dynamics

DriversAn increasing number of distributed and renewable power generation projects 

The growing number of distributed and renewable power production projects has aided the expansion of the digital utility sector. As the resource mix incorporates scattered energy supplies and new alternatives for delivering and consuming electrical services emerge in the distribution system, power systems worldwide have grown less centralized. Regarding supplying electrical services, DERs are currently marginal participants in most power networks; however, smart energy consumption and DER deployment are increasing. Small wind turbines, solar photovoltaic panels, natural-gas fueled fuel cells, and emergency backup generators are common examples of distributed energy generation in the residential sector.

RestraintsThe high operating costs of upgrading existing infrastructure

The need for huge capital to test major industry participants will restrain the market’s growth. According to IEE (Institute of Energy Economics) and Financial Analysis estimates, India would need to invest USD 60-80 billion in the next five years to update its grid infrastructure. Electric utilities are expected to invest USD 3.2 trillion in new and replacement transmission and distribution infrastructure worldwide. The digital transformation or upgrade of current infrastructure would necessitate significant expenditure, impeding the market’s growth.

OpportunitiesAdoption of advanced metering infrastructure

Implementing advanced metering infrastructure and other network sensing technology in the United States and Europe reflects the expanding digitization of the power industry through using ICTs, which provides considerable growth potential for the digital utility market. Around 59 billion smart meters in the United States have been placed, accounting for over 40% of metered locations. In the EU, improved meter installations are expected to reach 72 percent by 2020.

Rising customer demand for highly responsive systems and improved user experiences will aid in expanding the digital utility industry in the coming years. Rising efficiency in power utility distribution and productivity gains might provide attractive development prospects for the digital utility business in the future years. In the future, the growing integration of technologies such as the Internet of Things with digital utility services may help boost the digital utility industry.
