Smart Transformers Market: By Component, Type, Application, and Region
Global Smart Transformers market is valued at USD 2.19 Billion in 2021 and is projected to attain a value of USD 4.55 Billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period, 2022–2028.
Demand for Smart Transformers is growing as industrial market demands more efficiency and better performance from power distribution systems. Industrial electricity consumption accounts for around one third of total power demand in most countries, and is a significant portion even in developed nations such as Japan. And the number of industrial sites with large transformer banks is increasing due to a trend toward bigger production facilities, often located at a distance from population centers. So, it's not surprising that high percentage of industrial load can be found on utility meters. In addition, there is another factor driving demand for smart transformer technology: distributed energy generation from renewable sources such as solar photovoltaic (PV) or wind turbines.
Growing Focus on Technological Advancement to Drive Growth of the Smart Transformers Market
Electrical grid is going through a major transformation as an increasing number of consumers are using renewable energy sources. In fact, the Australian government has set a target to source 50 percent of the country's electricity from renewables by 2030. The trend towards decentralization is expected to drive the global smart transformer market over the forecast period. Further, increased focus on optimizing grid infrastructure to support new energy sources is expected to have a positive impact on this market. Another key factor fueling the smart transformer market is technological advancements.

By Application, Smart Grid is the Key Contributor to the Smart Transformers Market
As the power grid is transforming into a smart grid, smart transformer technology plays an important role. Since most renewable energy generation sources are often located away from where electricity is used, so it is necessary to transmit large amounts of electricity over high voltage transmission lines. But as these long-distance lines go through many communities and other areas with potentially sensitive installations, the ability to manage voltage profiles closely becomes more critical than ever before. In order to maintain safe and consistent voltage levels for all customers along these long-distance routes, utilities must be able to monitor and control voltages precisely at points throughout their distribution networks. Utility companies can use Smart Transformers as one of key components in this process.
Demand for Distributed Transformer to Remain High in the Smart Transformers Market
Higher volume EPC work will require more intelligent transformer designs. A series of technological innovations are creating opportunities for distributed transformer manufacturers to target the utility-scale wind market, where their products have historically been less popular because of performance issues. The wind power industry's focus on larger turbines is expected to result in higher volumes of energy being produced at remote locations, which will require a different approach to designing and building intelligent transformers that can handle the voltage regulation required over long lines.
To meet these needs, transformers vendors are using simulation tools—particularly electromagnetic transients’ software—to design products that include features specifically adapted for use in multi-megawatt wind turbines connected by miles-long transmission lines.
Asia Pacific to Continue to Dominate Global Smart Transformer Market
Electrical grid is going through a major transformation as an increasing number of consumers are using renewable energy sources. In fact, the Australian government has set a target to source 50 percent of the country's electricity from renewables by 2030.
