The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global transformer breathers market for 2017-2021. The market is segmented based on application (power transformers and distribution transformers) and geography (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).

Renovation activities are taking place worldwide, as most of the T&D equipment has served beyond its lifecycle and is unable to cater to the growing need for power. End-users, especially in the industrial sector, need to have uninterrupted power supply. Any power interruptions, even for a small duration, can cost the business thousands of dollars along with the loss of productivity. Most of the T&D network, especially in developing countries such as China and India need to upgrade their existing infrastructure to ensure uninterrupted power supply. This generates the need for replacement, triggering the demand for new oil-filled power and distribution transformers.

Modernization of existing transformers

Smart grid networks are being implemented in many countries. A smart grid is an electricity network that delivers an economical, sustainable, and secure electricity supply by intelligent integration of consumers, generators, or those capable of both in a well-organized manner. The use of advanced products and services along with intelligent metering, monitoring, control, communication, and self-healing technologies allows a smart grid system to accomplish a variety of tasks.

Gaurav Mohindru, a lead tools and components research analyst at Technavio, says, "The implementation of smart grid systems has led to the installation of an increased number of power and distribution transformers for efficient power supply. Thus, there is an increase in the need for transformer oil with more number of transformers being installed into the grid. The transformer oil helps to increase the average working life of transformers by offering an adequate amount of insulation."

T&D expansion leading to increase in transformer installations

Countries in APAC, including China, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, India, Japan, and Australia, are experiencing considerable economic growth along with industrialization and commercialization. Therefore, the demand for power is expected to increase in the region, which will subsequently boost the growth of the global transformers breathers market during the forecast period.

"Industrial development directly impacts urbanization, which results in growing construction activities in the residential and commercial sectors. Factors such as rising disposable income and rapid population growth in India have resulted in one of the fastest rates of urban development globally," adds Gaurav.

Renewable power generation capacity expansion

Many countries are adopting renewable sources of energy like wind and solar to meet stringent carbon emission goals and reduce their dependence on depleting fossil fuel resources. Many end-users have incorporated alternative forms of energy instead of depending on power generators that operate on fossil fuels. Solar power, hydropower, wind power, and other forms of renewable energy are gaining popularity among all categories of electricity end-users.

Commercialization of renewable energy worldwide will create a huge demand for power and distribution transformers. Most of these resources are installed in places that lack proper T&D infrastructure. Future expansion of existing networks worldwide is also anticipated, which will be fueled by developing nations such as India where the integration of regional grids to form a nationwide electric grid network is in progress to ensure a seamless flow of electricity across the nation. This leads to extensive T&D infrastructure development activities.
