Global Market for Transformers to Reach $48.3 Billion in 2019; Asia-Pacific Market Moving At 8.1% CAGR

September 30, 2014

Wellesley, Mass., October 03, 2014 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report, GLOBAL MARKETS FOR TRANSFORMERS, the global transformers market is expected to grow to $48.3 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3%.  The Asia-Pacific market, the fastest-growing region of the overall market, is moving at a significant 8.1% CAGR.

 Tasked with the regulation of voltage output, transformers are critical to the electricity supply chain. Globally, the demand for this technology is driven by the increasing demand for electricity, replacement of older transformers, and environmental concerns, particularly in India and China.

 Indeed, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest and fastest growing segment of the global market. Valued at just $13.2 billion in 2013, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to surge to $21.1 billion by 2019. Such rapid growth is attributed to improving economic conditions and the increasing use of the region as a hub for Western markets to outsource the manufacture of their transformers.

 Meanwhile, the European and North American markets are projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 7.2% and 5%, respectively.

 “The upgrading of existing networks and replacement of older transformers in Western regions offer a huge growth opportunity for the transformer market,” said BCC Research energy analyst Aneesh Kumar. “This is especially the case for power and traction transformers, which have high performance properties to increase energy efficiency and reduce electricity losses. However, in the longer-term, the developing regions, including China, Brazil, India and others, will create huge opportunities for the transformer market with the increasing demand for electricity and increasing electricity production.”

 Increasing raw material prices and stricter environmental regulations on carbon emission levels have forced companies to focus on the development of advanced transmission technologies that will comply with current and future environmental regulations. The pressure to develop environmentally friendly transformers is increasing even in the Asia-Pacific and other developing regions.

 GLOBAL MARKETS FOR TRANSFORMERS provides an overview of the global markets for transformers and related technologies. It includes analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of CAGRs through 2019.
