According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global shunt reactor market is poised to create a valuation of USD 3.51 BN by 2025, growing at 4.66% CAGR during the review period (2019-2025). Rising installations of shunt reactors in onshore substations and offshore wind farm projects worldwide boost the market demand. Also, increasing numbers of contracts covering the supply of shunt reactors, air-insulated switchgear (AIS), gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) equipment, influence the market growth.

Additionally, improved supply chains of key power equipment, such as transformers, circuit breakers, and hybrid modules, increase market sales. Shunt reactors are used to enhance long AC cable systems' energy efficiency by absorbing the reactive power (charging current) generated within the cable. These reactors can be directly connected to the power circuit/a tertiary winding of a three-winding transformer.

Also, to improve the adjustment of the consumed reactive power, a variable shunt reactor (VSR) could be an economical solution for some applications. The advent of smart grids would act as an opportunity for the shunt reactor market. Augmenting demand to improve energy efficiency in smart grids, alongside the increased investment in clean technologies and renewable power generation capacity expansion, fosters market growth.
