“The instrument transformers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.35%, from 2017 to 2022”
The global instrument transformers market is estimated at USD 7.32 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.35% to reach USD 9.06 billion by 2022. The global market is set to witness a significant growth due to increasing emphasis on alternative energy production across the globe, refurbishment of aging infrastructure, and huge investments in smart grids and energy systems. Although some cost bearing constraints in the installation of instrument transformers are being observed, still emerging economies are expected to create better opportunities for the instrument transformers market. The delay in grid expansion is expected to be a major challenge for the growth in the instrument transformers market.
“The distribution voltage segment is expected to have the largest market share by 2022”
With regards to the voltage segment, the distribution voltage segment is expected to constitute the largest market by 2022. The distribution voltage has been considered between 0.72 kV and 36 kV in this report. The main application of instrument transformers is to offer electrical protection against overload currents, insulation failure, and emergency switching for residential and commercial infrastructures. They also find application for the protection of industrial equipment, such as generators, motors and compressors, HVAC and air-conditioning, heating and lighting equipment, step up transformer bushing, overload current protection, and electric arc protection in transmission and distribution sub-stations, along with the measurement of electrical parameters. Due to their application at various end-user points in the distribution grid infrastructure, the segment is expected to dominate the market by 2022.
“Middle East: The fastest growing market for instrument transformers”
The instrument transformers market is projected to grow at a fast pace in the Middle East. This region is undergoing rapid electricity infrastructure development to maintain the demand-supply balance. Moreover, countries such as the UAE are investing heavily in diversifying their energy mix and are trying to tap into renewable sources. Qatar is set to be the host of the FIFA World Cup 2022 and the country needs to upgrade its infrastructure. The process of upgradation would create substantial opportunities for the suppliers of instrument transformers. Furthermore, increasing government investments in the economic and infrastructure growth are expected to boost the Middle Eastern instrument transformers market. The tremendous surge in energy demand, precipitated by the ongoing infrastructure development activities for the Dubai Expo 2020, would also drive the growth of the regional market.
