The solid-state transformer market is evaluated at US$166.897 million for the year 2019 and is projected to grow rapidly during the forecast period.

A Solid State Transformer(SST) or power electronic transformers(PET) are modern network devices that combine multiple power electronic converter stages with high or low-frequency transformers. . A solid-state transformer provides several benefits such as they are highly reliable and robust, efficient in utilization, and are comparatively inexpensive as compared to traditional transformers. Solid-state transformers are widely used in applications that facilitate a smooth transition between AC and DC and aids in voltage conversion. A solid-state transformer is a key enabler for the internet of energy, enabling uni-or bi-directional power flow with local autonomous control and distributed intelligence through communications. The solid-state transformer market is projected to grow at a significant rate over the forecasted period. Solid-state transformers are widely used in applications that facilitate a smooth transition between AC and DC and aids in voltage conversion. Alternative power generation is the most dominant usage of solid-state transformers driving the market growth. Besides, increasing adoption of renewable power sources such as solar energy, wind energy, and widespread application of traction locomotives are major factors bolstering adoption in the solid-state transformer market globally. Moreover, complementary to the widespread adoption of renewable power sources, the aging transmission, and distribution infrastructure is estimated to further augment growth in the solid-state transformer market. However, high initial investment costs and inadequate SST testing infrastructure are likely to hinder the growth in the solid-state transformer market globally.

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease severely impacted the Solid State Transformer market. The growth in the solid-state transformer market can be largely attributed to the rising application of electric vehicles and increasing investments in renewable sources for energy generation. However, owing to lockdown and movement restrictions in countries to curb the spread of the virus, it severely impacted the SST market, leading to the unavailability of raw materials for the manufacturing of electric equipment. Additionally, transportation and distribution of this equipment were further affected, leading to supply chain disruptions in the solid-state transformers market. The Solid State Transformer market has been segmented based on product type, application, and geography. Geographically, the analyzers market is segmented into North American, European, Asian Pacific, South American, and the Middle East and African region.

Medium Voltage/Low Voltage based Solid State Transformer segment to show promising growth.

By voltage, the Solid State Transformer market has been classified into and High voltage/ Medium and Medium Voltage/Low Voltage. The Medium Voltage/Low Voltage is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecasted period. The growth in the Medium Voltage/Low Voltage segment can be attributed to the growing demand for electric vehicles. The growing demand for electric vehicles is majorly supported by increasing government investments in the development of electric vehicle charging infrastructures. Thus, the growing demand for EVs is estimated to further complement growth for the development of electric charging stations. Therefore creating growth opportunities for MV/LV solid state transformer market. Moreover, MV/LV segment is instrumental in the application of power production in photovoltaic systems, cogeneration systems, and other industrial applications.

Renewable Power Generation Segment to hold a significant market share.

By application, the classification of the market has been done as power grids, Traction locomotives, Renewable power generation, electric vehicle charging stations, and others. The renewable power generation segment can be further segmented into the wind, solar and tidal power. The renewable power generation segment is projected to hold a significant share in the market over the forecasted period. The growth can be attributed to the adoption of the transformers for power generation using non-conventional energy sources such as wind, solar and tidal energy. Wind energy is a key benefactor to the power generated through alternative sources of energy, whereas, APAC region is a leader in the domain. The rising adoption of these alternative energy sources is estimated to further growth in the Solid-state transformers market. Moreover, increasing adoption of smart transformers based on SST technologies in electric vehicles and renewable energy stations for electric flow controllability and DC connectivity is expected to drive demand over the forecasted period.

Asia Pacific region to witness lucrative growth opportunities.

Geographically, the distribution of the global market has been done in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific. The North American region is expected to witness noteworthy growth in the market over the forecasted period owing to increasing growth in the renewable energy capabilities in advanced power grid systems. Moreover, rising investments and technological advancements in power distribution systems are projected to further augment the demand in the market. However, the APAC region is anticipated to dominate the market and witness rapid growth owing to the large population residing in countries like China and India, with these two countries accounting for more a significant share of global electric demand for various applications.

Participation by market players.

The market players are actively participating in form of increased investments in R&D and are taking collaborative efforts for launching new products to expand their market share and meet the growing end-use requirements. For instance, Hitachi ABB Power Grids recently partnered with NTU Singapore to develop advanced solid-state transformer solutions. The project is part of the Singapore government's flagship Energy grid 2.0 initiative and is aimed at shaping the next generation grid system and focuses on how transforming how efficiently energy can be consolidated into a single intelligent network.
