Growing investment in infrastructure development and increasing urbanization is likely to stimulate electrical steel market growth. Global power transformers market is estimated to be valued at more than USD 22 billion in 2018, which indicates significant growth opportunities. These products find their usage in transformers, power industry and high-speed cars owing to their ability to reduce energy loss, improved efficiency, low emissions of carbon dioxide and hysteresis loss in high-speed electric motors. Increasing urban population & technological advancements, along with rising consumer’s disposable income will further stimulate market growth in the energy sector.

Rise in infrastructure demand has resulted in increased per capita consumption of electricity thereby promoting the growth in market demand. Government norms in several countries aim to reduce carbon dioxide emission and have enacted regulations for the usage of transformers which has increased product with improved properties to manufacture efficient cores. The gradual loss in electrical energy due to hysteresis is uneconomical when used in electrical devices and can adversely affect the workability of steel. These products reduce the energy loss owing to their unique properties like high permeability, effective magnetic properties, strong power density and longevity which likely to boost market size.

However, it is incapable of meeting complex requirements of precision and efficiency. Large amount of mechanical stress is generated during the cutting, bending and punching operations which reduces the magnetism thereby reducing the original magnetic effect. These products also face various technological and safety constraints which may hinder the market growth.
