The Transformer Core Industry Overview
Transformer Core Market was valued at $7,123 million and is expected to reach $8,897 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2016 to 2022. Transformer cores comprise primary, secondary, or tertiary windings utilized in different grades, and are installed in transformers according to the transformer type and capacity. A low reluctance magnetic path known as the core of the transformer, common to all the windings, increases the overall efficiency of transformers. The efficiency of a transformer depends on the flux linkages between the core windings. The transformer core market has witnessed considerable growth in the recent past, due to rise in government investment in renewable power projects and rapid industrialization and urbanization. The World Bank reported that the power consumption in Latin America is anticipated to increase by twofold from 2010 to 2030, and is expected to obtain an investment of approximately $430 billion to cater to the growing electricity demand. Thus, increase in the number of power transformers in turn fuels the market growth, which is projected to account for $8,897 million by 2022, with a CAGR of 3.5% from 2016 to 2022.
Transformer Core Market Segmentation
Increase in demand for electricity production worldwide and rise in integration of renewable sources of energy to produce electricity drive the market growth. However, factors such as rapid fluctuations in raw material prices and change in regulatory environment are expected to hinder the market growth. In addition, Asia-Pacific is projected to register significant growth as compared to the saturated markets of North America and Europe. The amount of transformer cores used in distribution transformers is expected to reduce, owing to the increase in the expansion of power grids and power generation projects, thus fueling the total number of power transformers.
