Market Scenario

Transformers cover a very diverse subject area that encompasses both, small and very large components. Transformers can be segmented on the basis of type as distribution transformer, power transformer and others, which includes instrument transformer. Transformer systems have been governing the renewable and non-renewable energy markets in recent years owing to its ability to transmit & distribute the energy in the form of electricity through reducing the current ampere and increasing the voltage and vice versa, to supply power according to end-user needs.

The global rise in conventional and non-conventional power generation is creating a wide scope for the development of electrical components on large scale. The biggest new investment over the succeeding decade will be in China and India as they seek to encounter rising electricity demand while renovating their grids. Developed countries will also be investing significantly, particularly in smart grid infrastructure and renewable energy integration. Transmission and distribution investment is expected to be significant in all major geographies. The growing urbanization and industrialization with development of new data centers across the world, are continuously enhancing the technological aspects. This advancement has created a growing demand for electrical appliance and infrastructure in utility, residential & commercial and industrial sectors. The growth is inter-related with the growth in the transmission and distribution network, so as to supply power to these sector with appropriate power rating and frequency. All these major factors contribute hugely in the development of new transmission and distribution network across the globe, which indirectly boosts the transformer market.
