Excerpts…

How is the growth potential of the transformer industry in India?

We see tremendous energy demands from the multi fold growth in various industries right from pharma, chemical, textiles to engineering units. We are witnessing fast growing urbanisation, which is also boosting the need to expand existing transmission and distribution system to bridge the gap of demand and supply.

Currently, we are witnessing many favourable policies of the Government of India (GoI) – to address the increasing energy demand, which is also playing a major role to drive the Indian transformer market. The Green Energy Corridor serves as a strong example for development of series of infrastructure projects aimed at synchronizing the power generated from renewable energy sources like wind, solar, hydro with the conventional national grid of India. Hence, it’s clear that there’s a strong demand anticipated in the transformer industry.

What are the latest trends noticed by you in India and abroad as far as the transformers industry is concerned?

The domestic transformer manufacturing industry is a highly fragmented segment. It is marked by the presence of many large players as well as a significant number of unorganised players, especially for distribution transformers. The Indian distribution transformer market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period of 2022-2027.

Also, the country is witnessing increasing number of new small power rating substation projects at various locations. The distribution transformer segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment for the Indian distribution transformer market during the forecast period.

To facilitate and boost the distribution sector in rural and city areas, the GoI is also extending its cooperation by various schemes – such as Saubhagya Electricity Scheme, Integrated Power Development Scheme and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana.

The global transformer market is expected to be valued at USD 109.5 billion by 2032 with a CAGR of 7.2%. There is a growing emphasis on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and bring in energy efficient transformers, which is paving the way for favourable business environment for eco design transformers. Moreover, the new public and private investment and regulatory initiatives are contributing to the overall growth of the industry.
