In recent years, robust economic development and urbanization in Southeast
Asia (SEA) has led to strong growth in electricity demand, in both
sophisticated economies such as Singapore and less-developed nations such as
Cambodia and Myanmar. Most Southeast Asian countries, however, are faced with
low electrification levels, underdeveloped power grid infrastructure, and a
lack of capital and technologies. In a region where simply providing
sufficient electricity is challenging, governments and industries in SEA are
struggling to keep pace with the new trends in global clean energy
development. Nevertheless some emerging countries, such as Thailand, Malaysia,
Indonesia, and the Philippines, have recently begun developing concrete
national roadmaps to deploy smart grid technology so that they can manage
power more efficiently and effectively.
Undoubtedly, while policy makers in the SEA nations agree that a smart grid
program should be the ultimate goal for providing electricity, the smart grid
has a long way to go in the region. Pike Research forecasts that smart grid
revenue in the overall SEA market will experience steady growth across the
forecast period, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of just over 10%.
SEA smart grid revenue generated by the investment in transmission,
substation, and distribution upgrades (as well as smart meters) will grow from
approximately $1.9 billion in 2011 to $4.5 billion in 2020.
This Pike Research report provides a view of the smart grid market in SEA and
the related technologies and players. It also examines issues that are shaping
the market in SEA"especially the challenges and opportunities linked to the
development of power grid infrastructure for smart grid development in
specific countries. Policy factors and market drivers influencing the spread
of smart grid technology in the region are examined, and market forecasts are
provided on a region-wide and country-by-country basis, through 2020. The
report also features company profiles of 20 key industry players.
