Gas Insulated Transformer Market: Environment-friendly Transformer

  • Gas insulated transformers are used in applications where non-flammable, non-polluting transformers are required. For instance, they are employed in densely populated areas, buildings, and areas near lakes and rivers where oil leakage from a conventional transformer would be harmful to the environment. These transformers are also installed in environmentally critical areas where oil leakage is prohibited. These include hydroelectric power plants and water treatment facilities.
  • Gas Insulated transformers are designed to reduce fire hazards and have less impact on the environment. Sulfur hexafluoride gas insulated transformer is the most clean and safe to operate.
  • Gas insulated transformers are environmentally friendly and can be recycled easily. This is a major advantage of these transformers. Gas insulated transformers can be integrated directly with gas insulated switchgear to form a single, enclosed unit. This allows space savings and integrated control over the gas system.

Key Drivers of Gas Insulated Transformer Market

  • Rise in investment in electrical infrastructure and increase in initiatives to improve electrification rate are expected to drive the gas insulated transformer market in the near future. Growth in adoption of technologically advanced products and long-term investments in transmission and distribution of electricity are also anticipated to boost the demand for gas insulated transformers.
  • Lack of space for new substations and adverse environmental effects of oil-based transformers have encouraged manufacturers to shift toward the use of underground substations. This, in turn, has augmented the demand for non-explosive and large-capacity gas insulated transformers in order to ensure compactness and prevent accidents.
  • The emphasis on adopting renewable sources of energy across the globe is on the rise. This further contributes to the increasing popularity of gas insulated transformers.

Utility Segment to Offer Attractive Opportunities

  • Utility is anticipated to be the dominant segment of the market during the forecast period. Rise in demand for reliable power supply and increase in investments in power infrastructure to meet the need of electricity are estimated to boost the segment during the forecast period.
  • Growth of the commercial sector is driven by rapid urbanization and development of commercial trade hubs. Rise in urbanization and increase in number of commercial trade hubs striving to curb operating expenses are expected to boost the demand for gas insulated transformers in the commercial sector.
  • Gas insulated transformers with medium voltage are primarily installed at commercial and industrial places due to their compact size and non-explosive nature 

Stringent Environmental Regulations on Sodium Hexafluoride Content Likely to Hamper Market

  • Implementation of stringent environmental regulations concerning the use of sodium hexafluoride and high cost of equipment are major factors restraining the global gas insulated transformer market
  • Various health and safety organizations, such as Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA), have issued the warning regarding the formation of toxic compounds from electrical discharge of sodium hexafluoride gas. Thus, the penetration of alternative gas based transformers has been rising in the market.
