In today’s scenario the energy efficiency has become the prime concern of every industry including power transmission. To meet such objective, devices like shunt reactors are used to increase the energy efficiency of the systems. The growing power transmission infrastructure is increasing the demand for shunt reactors globally. A shunt reactor found their application in medium and high-voltage networks in order to improve efficiency and stability of the power transmission system. A shunt reactor is a compact device which is used to limit the reactive power and overvolatges and increases the energy efficiency in overhead lines. Shunt reactors are mostly connected to tertiary windings of transformers and to the power system at junctures. Both the transformer and shunt reactor appears similar in construction and contain the same components like tank, insulation, windings, core, bushings etc. 

Shunt Reactor Market: Drivers & Restraints

Growing power distribution infrastructure development in developing economies of Asia Pacific region such as China and India are projected to create increasing demand for shunt reactor during the forecast period 2015-2015. Also refurbishing of ageing and outdated infrastructure in developed economies is expected to drive the growth of global shunt reactor market. Increasing investment in renewable energy sources in Europe is also projected to be potential driver towards the growth of the global shunt reactor market. Conversely the cost related concerns can act as a restraining factor for the global shunt reactor market during the forecast period.
