Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for distribution automation from 2018 to 2023. The demand for distribution automation system in Asia Pacific is driven by rapid industrialization, increasing population, and urbanization. China and Japan are expected to hold a significant share of the Distribution Automation Market in the region in 2018.Utilities in these countries require the refurbishment of an obsolete distribution management system. Government support for reliable power supply through minimizing the power outage will also drive the distribution automation market in both countries. Moreover, the distribution automation market is also expected to grow significantly in countries such as India and Australia during the forecast period. The ability to optimize the energy allocation in the distribution network and integration of new power generation capacity from renewable energy resources are expected to drive the distribution automation market in India and Australia.

The key players in the distribution automation market are Siemens (Germany), ABB (Switzerland), GE (US), Schneider Electric (France), and Eaton (Ireland). Contracts & agreements was the most commonly adopted strategy by the top players in the market from 2013 to 2017. It was followed by new product development, investments & expansions, and mergers & acquisitions.

The public utility is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the distribution automation market from 2018 to 2023. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the significant grants given by the government to enhance the distribution network of public utilities. The grants offered by the government will help in modernizing the grid, which in turn will boost the market for distribution automation. The Middle East & Africa is the fastest-growing market for public utility and offers various business opportunities to distribution automation solution providers in the public utility segment. The governments of several countries in the region are focusing on increasing the contribution of renewable energy sources to meet the domestic electricity demand. This will increase the grid complexity, which in turn would drive the market of distribution automation to minimize the grid complexity.
