Transformer Core Market By Type (Power Transformers, Distribution Transformers and Others) - Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Transformer cores are primary, secondary, or tertiary metallic windings used in diverse grades, and are fitted in transformers depending upon the type of transformer and its capacity. A low reluctance magnetic winding, also known as transformer core, is common to all the windings present in the transformer. The core is usually arranged around the windings to offer multiple paths for the magnetic waves to traverse. The core is seized together by mechanical structures and is connected to a single grounding point to disintegrate electrostatic accumulation. Transformer core helps in EMI shielding and maintaining uninterrupted power transmission, thus increases the overall efficiency of transformers. The efficiency of a transformer hinge on the links between the flux and core windings. The transformer core market has foreseen significant growth over the past few years owing to increase in investments by governments in renewable power schemes coupled with rapid industrialization & urbanization.

Increase in demand for electricity production across the globe and growth in the integration of renewable energy sources to generate electricity are some major aspects driving the market growth. Power transformers require more amount of core than distribution transformers due to large size. Thus, the amount of transformer cores installed in distribution transformers is estimated to decrease due to a rapid increase in the development of power generation projects and new power grids. This in turn is accelerating the number of power transformers, which is a major trend prevailing in the global transformer core market.

However, several challenges such as increasing fluctuations in prices of raw material and variations in regulatory environment are expected to impede the market growth.

On the basis of type, power transformers accounts for a major share in the global transformer core market owing to increasing demand for electricity generation which in turn require large electricity grids. Thus, use of power transformers at electricity production sites is expected to drive the overall demand over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the dominant region due to increasing population and increasing demand for sustainable sources of energy. Also, increasing growth of Chinese and Indian economy is a major factor driving the growth of Asia Pacific transformer core market. Rapid urbanization in India and China is leading to an unprecedented demand for new infrastructural projects. Rising number of commercial buildings such as shopping malls, multiplexes and commercial complexes & office buildings are leading to a surge in demand for efficient electricity transmission frameworks, thus driving the Asia-Pacific transformer core market.
