There is a necessity to expedite the process of organising additional funding to guarantee a viable service delivery for the future. The reforms in the electricity supply and distribution industry have resulted in higher rates of access to electricity, increased the ease of power trading and the awareness for cost-reflective pricing strategies. Power distribution and transmission projects will dominate the investments in urban electricity supply owing to the increasing urbanisation. Key Questions This Study Will Answer: What is the current energy scenario in the target countries? What factors are driving and restraining the development of power infrastructure in South and East Africa? How is the financial performance of power sector utilities? What is the current infrastructure footprint of the power sector in the target economies? What are the upcoming projects in the field of power generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructure in South and East Africa? What are the opportunities for investments in the power sector in the target economies? Fri, 30 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Global Harmonic Filters and Reactors Market, Forecast to 2020 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD15-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD15-01-00-00-00 The global harmonic filters and reactors market will continue to be driven by power quality standards and compliance, transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure investment, the energy demand and supply gap, and technological innovation. Increased demand from emerging markets will be the key to future revenue growth. Despite the economic slowdown, Asia-Pacific (APAC) will lead the demand for reactors across industrial applications. Aggressive expansion by Chinese manufacturers has increased the level of competition in the market. Key factors influencing reactor pricing in the global market include the customer knowledge gap about power quality issues; intense competition because of low-cost competitors, especially in the Asian markets; a fragmented market with low entry barriers for low-voltage (LV) reactors manufacturers; product commoditization; and the lack of product differentiation and customisation.
