“The distribution transformer market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.57% from 2016 to 2021”
The distribution transformer market is projected to reach USD 17.61 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.57% during the forecast period. The distribution capacity addition plans and growing renewable generation are acting as the major drivers of the distribution transformer market.

“Three-phase transformer under the phase segment accounted for the largest market share of the distribution transformer market”
In terms of market, by phase, three-phase transformers held the largest market share in 2015. Three-phase transformers are typically used to step down the voltage in the power distribution systems. They are designed to perform with less material requirement, less size, and less weight as compared to single-phase transformers. Three-phase distribution transformers cost around 15% less than bank of three single-phase transformers. They also occupy lesser space then the later and can be easily installed. These factors are creating demand for the three-phase transformers market.

“Asia Pacific: The largest market for distribution transformers”
Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for distribution transformers, followed by North America and Europe. China accounted for the largest share in the Asian distribution transformers market in 2015, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. High power demand in China has led to the increase in planned distribution capacity of the country. This has been supported by government initiative and timely investment in power transmission and distribution, which is likely to drive the market in the region. The country is likely to witness investments worth USD 300 billion in distribution networks by 2020.
