Oil Filled Transformer Market size in Europe worth $12.5 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: March 23, 2023

Europe Oil Filled Transformer Market size is set to surpass USD 12.5 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising electric infrastructure spending is speculated to have a positive impact on the industry outlook in Europe. Emerging economies in the region are significantly spending on the expansion of electrical networks, along with public and private investments in infrastructure-related operations, which is increasing the size of the overall industry. For instance, in November 2022, the UK government took major steps to secure Britain’s energy dependence by taking forward the energy bill and funding Sizewell C’s project for clean energy in UK homes.

Ability to work in low-voltage settings to push closed-core transformers demand

The closed-core oil filled transformer market in Europe is foreseen to expand at over 6.5% CAGR between 2023 and 2032. Their economic feasibility and easy maintenance are attracting positive attention from the buyers as the windings in these transformers are wound outside & surround the core ring. Moreover, favorable attempts of the European Union to provide effective energy solutions in low-voltage or rural areas are further fostering the business scenario.

Cost-effectiveness and technical improvement to bolster the use of two-winding transformers

Oil filled transformer market from the two-winding segment is anticipated to progress at nearly 7% gains from 2023 to 2032. Traditional electrical networks are strongly inclined towards the use of tow-winding transformers, complemented by the introduction of technical breakthroughs and their wide-ranging application for high power levels. Furthermore, these transformers are more cost-effective as compared to their counterpart, and thus, find extensive usage in replacing the existing grid. To cite an instance, the Sensformer and Sensgear technology introduced by Siemens Energy interconnects digitally connected transformers.

Increasing deployment for electrical substations to augment > 10 MVA rated transformers

Europe oil filled transformer market size from the > 10 MVA rating segment reached around USD 700 million in 2022 as a result of the expansion of high-tension networks for long-route electrical supply. The segment growth is backed by prevalent uptake of these large units are deployed at generating stations and electrical substations to convert electrical power to high voltages for transmission. For instance, in January 2022, GE’s two 1,200 MVA and 400kV digital power transformers were chosen by Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) for its Kintore substation.

Surging prominence of energy efficiency to accelerate product adoption for commercial & industrial applications

Oil filled transformer market from the commercial & industrial application segment is predicted to observe more than 7.5% growth rate through 2032. The demand for oil-filled transformers for commercial & industrial purposes is likely to increase with the mounting number of low and medium-voltage networks in residential and commercial buildings. The demand for oil-filled transformers is escalating as wide-ranging frequency distribution linkages are gaining traction in line with a growing interest in energy efficiency.

Supportive government initiatives to extend energy supply across Germany

Oil filled transformer market from the Germany is slated to attain approximately 7% CAGR through 2032 owing to the strict regulatory framework for grid modification, in addition to funding and support initiatives offered by state-owned bodies. The retrofitting and development of existing T&D systems with related technologies that emphasize significant performance and cost-effectiveness are set to allay these concerns, driving the regional market expansion. In February 2021, the German government allocated €6 billion (over USD 6 billion) to increase energy efficiency in buildings and residential areas.

Mounting utilization of natural oils to shape the industry landscape

Top participants in the oil filled transformer market in Europe are Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., Eaton Corporation, Schneider Electric, Siemens Energy, CG Power & Industrial Solutions Ltd., Celme S.r.l., SGB SMIT, Elsewedy Electric, and LS ELECTRIC Co., Ltd, among others. These firms are primarily implementing production capacity and portfolio expansion tactics. For instance, in December 2022, Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., a motor and generator manufacturing firm, launched the FR3 oil-filled transformer which utilizes natural ester oil for electrical protection.
