Pune, India, November 2018/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the Global Solid State Transformer Market.
A solid state transformer not only performs the core task of a transformer, but it also offers various other benefits. Market Research Future (MRFR) has published and released a research report about the global solid state transformer market that forecasts massive surge for this market with 24% CAGR for this market between 2017 and 2023. In terms of cash, this market is expected to be worth the USD 392 Million by 2023.
The major factors driving the growth of solid state transformer market include the growth of the electric vehicle market, huge investments in the smart grid & energy systems, and increasing emphasis on alternative energy production across the world.
The global solid state transformer market has been segmented on the basis of application, component, product, and lastly, region. Based on application, the market has been segmented into alternative power generation, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, power grid, traction locomotives, and others. On the basis of product, the market has been segmented into distribution solid state transformer, power solid state transformer, and traction solid state transformer.
The component-based segmentation segments the market into converters, high-frequency transformers, switches, and others. The converters have been sub-segmented into alternating current (AC) to AC converters, AC to direct current (DC) converters, DC to AC converters, and DC to DC converters. Switches have been sub-segmented into insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTS), power diodes, Silicon Carbide (SiC) power thyristors, and SIC power metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs). The “others” covers high voltage inductors and high voltage resistors.
The regional segmentation of the global solid state transformer market segments the market into continent-based regional markets known as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and rest of the world (RoW). Not only Europe has been anticipated to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period, but it is also expected to grow at the fastest rate. The reasons for the growth of the European market include a higher level of awareness among the end users, increased adoption of solid-state transformer applications across various industry verticals and various technological advancements. The most important country-specific markets in Europe include France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom (UK).
After Europe, North America is the biggest regional market, primarily due to technological advancement being higher than Europe and the presence of many key market players in this region. The United States of America (USA) alone dominates 90% of the North American market. Other crucial country-specific markets in this region are Canada and Mexico. The Asia Pacific is the third significant market because growing urbanization and industrialization are not equal in all countries. With China and Japan being primary country-specific markets in this region, India, followed by the rest of Asia Pacific region, is another significant market in this region.
The RoW segment covers Latin America and Middle East & Africa (MEA) region. In Latin America, Argentina and Brazil have strong economies, and they might emerge as big markets in the future. In the MEA region, the market is slow but steady. The reasons for slow market growth in the MEA region are lack of education, lack of awareness, lack of technological development, and political instability.

Latest Industry News
Developed by North Carolina State University-based researchers, a new EV fast charging technology called medium voltage fast charger (MVFC) has been introduced. This technology is at least 10 times smaller than similar systems. Now not only it is being optimized to charge vehicles more quickly, but efforts are also on to enable it to charge multiple vehicles simultaneously. The new technology has been dubbed a medium voltage fast charger (MVFC). 10 OCT 2018
Delta, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, has commenced work on a research program, with 50% cost-share by the US Department of Energy (DOE), to develop a solid-state transformer (SST)-based extreme fast EV charger (XFC). This charger is expected to offer industry-leading capacity, going up to 400 kW so that it can provide capable EVs a 180-mile range with less than 10 minutes of charging. 30 AUG 2018
