Lighting Transformer Market Research, 2031

The global lighting transformer market size was valued at $1.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2022 to 2031.

Lighting transformers are transformers that are used only in conjunction with lighting. Dimmer switches are the usual name for them. A light can be turned brighter or dimmer by adjusting the voltage flowing through a circuit with the use of a transformer. They typically operate at lower temperatures and are more compact. These transformers are limited to 300 W of power. Lighting transformers also offer far less power handling capacity than magnetic transformers. In a short conclusion, transformers used to operate lighting are known as lighting transformers. They are made to enable voltage transformation to lower levels suited for domestic lights. An autotransformer, or a transformer with just one winding, is frequently used as a lighting transformer.
