The global market for Power Transformers is projected to reach US$31. 5 billion by 2025, driven by robust demand for energy; spiraling investments in new power plants; rising utility spending on upgrading transmission and distribution infrastructure to the smart grid standard; and strong sales of energy efficient and eco-friendly transformers. Often taken for granted, power transformers play a key role in ensuring dependable electricity reaches industrial and urban habitations which are epicenters of economic growth and subsequent energy requirement. Power Transformers aid in stepping up and stepping down voltage which is vital in safely transmitting & delivering electricity. These transformers can handle high voltage inputs between 33 to 400 kV. They have an efficiency rating of over 99% & help in cost effectively transmitting electricity across long distances. Newer energy efficient variants have longer life and feature significantly lesser energy wastage all through their operating life. Increasing the voltage eliminates resistance in transmission wires and reduces energy losses. Also, higher voltages enable long distance transmission of electricity. Without power transformers there can be no transmission of electricity needed to run and operate digital technologies like laptops, smart phones, internet devices, connected systems and machines. In light of the critical role played by power transformers in electricity transmission and distribution, these transformers have and will continue to play a critical role in meeting electrification goals.

A key trend in the market is digitalization as an omnipresent design theme. Manufacturers are developing smart Internet of Things (IoT) enabled transformers with remote maintenance capabilities and remote monitoring of transformer parameters such as tank temperature, voltage applied etc. , via the internet. Continuous technology innovation such as development of alternative fuels and breakthrough in innovative designs of large power transformers (LPTs) will help drive future growth in the market. Interest in gas insulated transformers (GITs) is growing as a potential replacement for oil immersed transformers (OITs) to meet sharp increases in electricity demand as a result of unchecked urban sprawl. Other noteworthy trends also shaping growth in the market include growing focus on reducing large power losses over longer distances and the ensuing interest in high voltage power transmission; rising commercial value of eco-friendly, green transformers supported by innovations such as hermetically sealed tank design and power transformers with biodegradable insulating fluids. Asia-Pacific including China is a major market worldwide led by factors such as GDP gains, expanding population and energy needs, rapid industrialization, strong investments in the development of the power generation and transmission infrastructure, establishment of new urban settlements and townships and a parallel increase in rural electrification projects and implementation of energy-efficiency standards that call for immediate upgrades to new transformers capable of fulfilling minimum energy efficiency requirements.
