Gas Insulated Transformer Market Scenario


Gas insulated transformer market is expected to grow at 5.23% CAGR during the forecast period.


In gas insulated transformers, the gas used is non-explosive and non-flammable and eliminates regular checks of oil and increased awareness towards environmental concerns. These transformers are majorly utilized in medium voltage and high voltage applications such as underground shopping centers, hydroelectric power plant, thermal power plant, chemical plants, and public water facilities. They are used for transmission and distribution purposes to create a more reliable and safe power system. There are various initiatives from the government for the development of infrastructure. Hence, the growth in demand for reliable power leads to the growth of the market during the forecast period. The market is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period, majorly due to the rise in demand for clean energy generation and renewable sources of energy. Governments around the world have developed attractive incentives, rewarding the use of renewable sources of energy, which further drives the growth of the gas insulated transformer market, globally.


Asia-Pacific holds the largest share of the gas insulated transformer market, especially due to the demand in nations such as China, Japan, India, where authorities are focused on expansion of the transmission and distribution grid. Asia-Pacific is considered to have the highest population, which lead to the rise in demand for electricity and availability of grid with higher efficiency. Most countries in the region are working on development and expansion of power grids. Such factors increase the growth of the regional market.


Key Players

Global Gas Insulated Transformer Market


Global gas insulated transformer market is projected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period, as the market is based on the infrastructure development and expansion of grids. Renewable energy resources and integrating power system also contribute to the global gas insulated transformer market, with Asia-Pacific having the largest market share. North America holds the second largest share in the gas insulated transformer market.


In gas insulated transformer, gas is used as the insulating and cooling medium for the transformer. Sulphur Hexafluoride, SF6 is the gas used in gas insulated transformer. These transformers are adopted due to its environment-friendliness, non-explosive and non-flammable in nature. Also, with their usage, there is no need for conservator, monitor the oil strength, and need for replacement. These transformers are designed with the most advanced technical features, favorable for hydro power, underground substation and offshore substation. Currently, in the transformer industry, gas insulated transformers are preferred over oil insulated transformers due to its numerous advantageous. Hence, it is estimated that there will be significant growth in gas insulated transformer market due to various advantages and the environment friendly applications.
