Dehydrating Breather Market Value & Growth Rate:

The Global Dehydrating Breather Market size was valued at US$ 421.10 million in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at US$ 543.90 million by 2026 and increase at a CAGR of 3.89% during 2021 and 2026. 

Dehydrating Breather Market Scenario:

The increasing demand for transformers and a growing need for equipment protection and technological advances are anticipated to propel the global dehydrating breather market forward throughout the forecast period. Dehydrating breathers keep the oil in electrical equipment from becoming contaminated by moisture from the air. They're most probably placed on the top of the oil compartment of an on-load charger or the airside of a power transformer. The dehydrating breather is made up of silica gel, which can absorb moisture from the air breather. In most situations, the lack of moisture level control in the transformer or industrial device is the primary cause of failure. Therefore, it's critical to maintain low humidity using a dehydrating breather packed with silica, which absorbs moisture in the air and lowers transformer maintenance costs. The dehydration breather is designed to prevent any interaction between moisture-containing air and silica, allowing the breather to last longer and require less maintenance. Alternative breathers are occasionally added to the same device to improve transformer dependability and keep the silica gel saturation level at the necessary level. These items are equally simple to install as well as retrofit. For end-user confidence in maintenance performance, the dehydrating breather must be compatible with international standards such as European (EN) requirements. The amount of oil that a dehydrating breather can protect determines the breather's rating.

Dehydrating Breather Market Drivers:

The Dehydrating Breather Market is growing due to a growing requirement for increased capacity utilization, a rising need for smart power infrastructure, and rising sales of heavy-duty vehicles. The next generation of dehydrating breathers for power transformers are equipped with an accurate pressure sensor that will monitor the incoming air, use the pattern, and finalize the time for silica regeneration, for example, in remote applications. In addition, the dehydrating breathers are also integrated with indicators that will describe the operational status and other controls, for example, in small applications. Furthermore, rising government support for energy-efficient and power-saving systems increased transformer applications, and increased product development and investments in the power transmission industry are all driving market expansion. In 2019, Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen GmbH, for example, introduced the MTRAB 2.5, a new generation of dehydrating breather. Its features are intended to assist clients in lowering their equipment's life cycle costs and overcoming obstacles. A dehydrating breather is termed as a device that prevents atmospheric moisture from entering electrical appliances and the oil compartment, particularly in transformers. Because of its exceptional water observing properties, silica gel is commonly employed as a dehydration agent.

The dehydrating breather contains silica gel, which absorbs moisture created during transformer operation. It's usually a cylindrical jar with a transformer's aperture wrapped around it to keep moisture out. The dehydrating breathers are also connected to the oil traps to minimize moisture contact, increase the equipment's life and minimize maintenance expenses. Transformers are being used all around the world as a result of rapid technological advancement. As a result, preserving electrical equipment in good working order is necessary to maintain efficient power transmission and a reliable distribution system. This is the primary factor in the market for dehydrating breathers expanding. In addition, the considerable growth in transformers has fueled demand for dehydrating breathers to extend the life of electronics. Most importantly, the growing demand for step-up and step-down transformers has stemmed from the increased renewable energy output worldwide. In the foreseeable future, this surge in transformer applications is projected to raise demand for dehydrating breathers. Therefore, these are the significant factors that are primarily responsible for the global dehydrating breather market growth.

Dehydrating Breather Market Restraints:

The presence of dehydrating breather replacements and the increased usage of dry-type transformers are projected to restrain the worldwide dehydrating breather market's growth. On the other hand, frequent desiccant changes and high maintenance costs are projected to be significant roadblocks to the dehydrating breather market's expansion. However, the emergence of dry-type transformers as a substitute has slowed the global dehydrating breather market's growth.

Recent Developments in the Global Dehydrating Breather Market:

  • ABB introduced a conventional dehydrating breather, widely used to absorb moisture from the air intake into the transformer. It further added that the dehydrating breather comprises salts of pure silicon oxide, preventing oil contamination and absorbing moisture and humidity of the atmosphere. 

  • AGM Container Controls announces that its desiccant breathers can be reused. Moreover, they are primarily utilized for safeguarding items in storage areas.

  • Des-Case Standard breathers are designed to protect lubricants and equipment against moisture and particle contamination in various industries and applications.

Dehydrating Breather Market Segmentation:

By Type:

  • Self-dehydrating breather
  • Conventional breather

In the global dehydrating breather market, the conventional breather segment is likely to play a significant role. Its rapid rise can be ascribed to the fact that it is widely employed in applications such as utility and automotive due to its low cost and convenient availability. Furthermore, the expansion of diesel- and oil-based power generation capacity encourages the growth of conventional breathers in the dehydrating breather market. The idea behind the design of the Dehydrating breathers are primarily to absorb moisture created by air intake into the transformer during the oil mass's thermal contraction.

By Desiccant volume

  • <2.0kg
  • 2.0kg to 4.0kg
  • >4.0kg

Based on desiccant volume, 2 to 4kg volume attributes to the largest global dehydrating breather market share during 2021-2026. Because it is widely employed in numerous applications such as utilities, heavy-duty vehicles, and storage, the 2.0 Kg to 4.0 Kg category commanded the most significant market share, boosting heavy-duty vehicle sales.

By Vertical

  • Heavy-duty vehicles
  • Utilities
  • Industrial

Based on vertical, the utility segment tends to hold the most prominent global dehydrating breather market share in the upcoming years. The dehydrating breather market is predicted to develop due to increased demand for power generation and the restoration of old infrastructure. Therefore, the global dehydrating breather market is projected to be led by the utility segment.
