Moreover, the integration of intelligent communication and control systems, adaptive networks, and other interactive functionalities will bolster the industry outlook.

Rising demand for closed core transformers

The closed core transformer market is predicted to observe a 6.4% growth rate till 2030. The industry has widely adopted closed core power transformers due to their multifaceted applicability across different voltage conditions. In addition, the expanded transformation capacity to accommodate renewable energy aligns with efficient operational life expectancy.

Supportive regulatory norms to increase the usage of power transformers

The power transformer segment surpassed USD 17 billion in 2021. Growing infrastructural spending supported by favorable norms related to the expansion and refurbishment of existing grid networks has escalated the demand for power transformers. Furthermore, rapid urbanization in addition to the rapid industrial expansion in developing economies will boost the demand for power transformers.

Increasing operational capability of auto transformers

The auto winding transformer market is poised to witness 7.8% gains through 2030. This growth can be attributed to the effective operational flexibility of the transformer in comparison to its counterparts. Additionally, sustainable costs, compact unit structure, and high efficiency are other characteristics fostering product adoption.

Improved safety features increase sales of dry-type transformers

In recent years, dry-type transformers have garnered significance, on account of their competitive cost framework and operational safety in comparison to available options. Despite this, the market presence of these transformers across high-voltage applications is still in its nascent stage, which indicates lucrative growth opportunities over the coming years.

Sustainable transformation characteristics will increase the demand for oil-insulated transformers

The oil-insulated segment dominated with around 58% of the transformer market share in 2021. Since the introduction of transformers in electrical infrastructure, oil-insulated transformers have been one of the most primitive technologies. These systems can withstand high temperatures and have effective insulation abilities along with sustainable product implementation, which will propel business development. However, the introduction of novel insulation approaches supported by technological advancements may negatively impact industry growth.

Widespread industrial applicability to upsurge the adoption of ≤ 10 MVA rated transformer

The ≤ 10 MVA rated transformer segment held nearly 48% of the market revenue share in 2021 on account of its wide adoption across power, process industries, and infrastructure sectors. Furthermore, the growing integration of renewable sources across the residential infrastructure, coupled with the accelerated expansion of micro-grid networks, will drive the market demand.

Large-scale deployment of pole-mounted transformers to define industry landscape

The pole-mounted segment in the transformer market is estimated to attain 7% CAGR between 2022 and 2030, led by large-scale deployments of pole-mounted units to serve long-haul electrical supply networks. Long-distance load centers across regions with restricted grid access will also provide opportunities for technological expansion.

Development of energy-efficient corridors to promote product adoption

The utility application is expected to showcase substantial gains during the forecast period owing to the surging expansion of cross-border electrical networks. Additionally, growing concerns related to the development of energy-efficient infrastructure and the initiatives undertaken by administrative authorities to deal with the same will stimulate the industry demand from utility applications.
