In the UK, the market held a valuation worth around $90 billion (£79bn) in 2016 and has been predicted to witness sizable growth through to 2030.

The market in the US is forecast to grow as result of the increasing investments in restoring existing power infrastructure along with growing deployment of advance support systems – China is said to have announced investment worth $800 billion (£706bn) across the US energy infrastructure industry in 2017.

The market in Japan alone is expected to exceed $2 billion (£1.76bn) by 2030, with ongoing investments towards the expansion of grid networks coupled with rising electricity consumption and concerns relating to security of supply.
