Transformers (Electricity): A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 23, 2010
The global transformers market witnessed rapid growth over the past several years, owing to the increasing demand for electricity the world over. However, the global economic downturn dampened growth in the global transformers market, more profoundly in the industrial sector. Positive growth, however, sustained in the market, due primarily to the continued rise in demand for electricity from developing countries, in addition to sustained demand for replacing old and obsolete equipment in the developed markets. The expected recovery of the global economy, continued growth in demand for electricity, and continued rise in infrastructure investments are all expected to drive the market to catch up with the previous growth trend.
Asia-Pacific constitutes the largest market for electricity transformers worldwide, accounting for more than 50% of the global market in value terms, as stated by the new market research report on Transformers. Demand for transformers in developed markets, such as North America and Europe, is expected to be slow compared to the developing markets, which are expected to record maximum gains in the foreseeable future. Demand for transformers is projected to grow at a CAGR of about 9.0% in terms of number of units sold in Latin America.
In terms of transformer types, Distribution Transformers dominates the global transformers market. The highly fragmented global market for distribution transformers is marked by intense competition. Several manufacturers from Europe and North America currently dominate the market, apart from hundreds of market participants from other regions, including China. Demand for Power Transformers is projected to increase at a CAGR of more than 7.0% over the analysis period.
European and North American companies primarily dominate the power transformers market, though competition from regions such as Asia-Pacific has also intensified.
