Smart Transformer Market Size, Share, Growth Analysis (2021-2026)

The global smart transformer market is predicted to grow from $ 1.35 billion in 2021 to $ 2.8 billion by 2026, at an annual expansion rate (CAGR) of 10.93% over the foreseen period.

 Aging transmission and distribution infrastructure, growing awareness of energy sources, and technological advancements are driving the expansion of the worldwide smart transformer market. However, access to economic capital and cybersecurity and data privacy are aspects that are hindering the expansion of the market. On the other hand, improvements in the electricity sector and the monitoring of microgenerators create opportunities in the industry. Smart transformers integrate the general functionality of a transformer with communication technology, monitoring software, and others. The smart transformer works autonomously to regulate voltage, maintain contact with the smart grid to allow remote access and facilitate feedback into a power supply system. The remote access provided by smart transformers saves users time and resources. An instinctive intelligent transformer monitoring function improves reliability by keeping a watch on critical components such as the core, winding, tap changer and others. Smart transformers protect electrical equipment against power variations, reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and improve the efficiency of electrical devices. They are environmentally friendly and allow users to save money by using energy efficiently.

Smart Transformer Market Trends:

The smart transformer market is still nascent, but it has enormous expansion potential. Currently, the market is mainly driven by the rise of aging power distribution networks around the world. As part of development initiatives, governments in developing countries are making huge investments to expand the scope of electrification in different towns and cities. Smart transformers are employed in such projects, and therefore their implementation leads to market expansion. The smart transformer works independently to regulate voltage, maintain contact with the smart grid to allow remote access, and provide feedback on a power supply system. The remote access provided by smart transformers saves users time and resources. A built-in intelligent transformer monitoring function improves reliability by monitoring critical components.

Recent Developments in the Smart Transformer Market Industry:

The Nepal Electricity Authority has made a decision to introduce a smart system to monitor its substations and transformers across the nation online. The Authority's energy skills department is installing the system in substations and large transformers throughout the country.(PowerTransformernews)

Smart Transformer Market Drivers

The worldwide smart transformer market is predicted to experience extraordinary expansion during the outlook period. The tremendous expansion of the electricity sector coupled with escalating population and rising call for energy has boosted the smart transformer market in various areas. The expansion is mainly attributed to the improvement of aging utility infrastructure, escalated investment in the industrial sector and related government regulations have improved the smart transformer market in several countries, which is predicted to continue in the future. The call for safer and more efficient power transmission, associated with environmental concerns about electricity production, has led to the development of numerous international and national regulations, such as the eco-design regulations of the European Commission, among others. These regulations are also boosting the global smart transformer market. The market is also positively influenced by the huge increase in the development of utility (transformer) and industrial infrastructure in emerging markets such as China and India, among others.

Restraints in the Smart Transformer Market:

Access to affordable capital, cybersecurity, and data privacy are factors that hamper market expansion.

Opportunities in the Smart Transformer Market:

The global smart transformer market is predicted to see a lot of developments during the foreseen period due to the incessant technological advances in the power sector related to the escalating call for power. The market is also likely to have a lot of expansion activity from well-established worldwide companies. Mergers and acquisitions activity is predicted to be observed over the foreseen period with various contracts and agreements between major contractors and governments around the world. The growing popularity of the electric vehicle market and growing call for allied infrastructure will create lucrative expansion opportunities for this market during the foreseen period.

Smart Transformer Market Challenges:

High initial investments can hamper market expansion during the foreseen period. Factors such as the high initial cost of installing electrical transformers and the lack of data for successful planning can limit the business expansion
