Smart Transformers Market By Type (Power Transformer, Speciality Transformer, Distribution Transformer, Instrument Transformer), By Component (Switches, Converters, Transformers, Others), By Application (Smart Grid, Traction Locomotive, Electric Vehicle Charging, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2019 – 2027

Increasing government spending for power utilities along with growing energy demand will boost the market.

The global smart transformers market is expanding rapidly and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.9% from 2019 to 2027, starting at US$ 1.86 Bn in 2018.In view of raising the regional electrification index, the ongoing preferences for the replacement of existing grid infrastructure are anticipated to fuel the global market for smart transformers. Furthermore, numerous utilities will replace conventional single-phase power supplies with upgraded three-phase system networks, driving product demand even higher. According to the IEA, global transmission and distribution (T&D) investments totaled around US$ 260 billion in 2016, a 14% increase over 2015. Furthermore, rising public-private partnership investments will significantly address the demand-supply mismatch and completely stimulate business dynamics. Favored government regulatory inclination and a positive outlook for the establishment of sustainable energy mixes will further boost the market for smart transformers on a global scale.

Furthermore, grid integration, along with increased demand for sustainable technologies, is likely to lead to the expansion of microgrid networks, thereby fueling product deployment in the coming years. Several smart grid initiatives have been taken by numerous organizations like IEEE in order to maintain the development of the global distribution transformer market. For example, the Government of India (GoI) introduced the "Green Energy Corridor Project" in 2015, proposing a total investment of around US$ 1 billion for the development of renewable energy transmission via a separate energy corridor network. The aforementioned factors are projected to drive the market for smart transformers over the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Rising demand for capacity utilization along with the implementation of government policies and schemes will drive the demand for distribution transformers globally.

Growing emphasis on renewable energy generation across the world, coupled with rising electrical infrastructure projects, is anticipated to drive the demand for distribution transformers in the coming years, which in turn will boost the smart transformers market globally. The smart transformers are being used in the distribution grid to work independently for voltage regulation and monitoring while maintaining a connection with the smart grid. This enables the transfer of transformer information and supplied power to remote administration, thereby enabling proper load management and resulting in improved power quality and fewer power outages. Moreover, the growing importance of renewable energy generation globally, coupled with an increase in the number of electrical infrastructure projects, is likely to propel the demand for distribution transformers over the forecast period, thereby boosting the revenue growth for smart transformers.

For example, the Government of India is taking the lead in strengthening the country's power transmission and distribution network and has launched initiatives such as the "UDAY Scheme" to help power distribution companies turn around their finances. Additionally, the government has estimated an investment of around Rs. 146,000 crores.

Regional Analysis

Dominance is led by rising power demand from residential and industrial communities coupled with intensifying utility investment to drive market growth.

The smart transformers market is expected to grow at a faster rate, with a market share of around 43 percent in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in Japan, China, and South Korea. Growing energy demand across the region and the presence of emerging economies like Japan, China, India, and Singapore are likely to propel the demand for smart transformers across the region. Additionally, in 2017, the Asia-Pacific attracted a capital investment of around 45%, thereby leading to a potential for foreign direct investment (FDI) on a global scale. Moreover, increasing investments in improving infrastructure and urbanizing populations, particularly in emerging economies like India and China, are anticipated to drive the market for smart transformers across the region. Furthermore, growing investments and developments for smart cities and grid technologies like the installation of smart meters, distribution grid automation, and demand response systems in countries such as South Korea, Japan, and Australia would generate ample prospects for the smart transformer market.

For instance, in 2018, India was the third-largest electricity-generating nation, which generates power from both renewable and conventional sources across the globe. India has made numerous key developments in improving the accessibility and reliability of power in rural and urban societies through several government-led schemes such as "Power for All," "Saubhagya Scheme," "Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS)," and many more. Moreover, with the deployment of renewable sources of energy for power generation, electrification in remote localities becomes less expensive for the government of India. The aforementioned factors are projected to propel the revenue growth of smart transformers across the region.
