Global Dry Transformer Market Overview:

A dry transformer is popularly known as a cast resin transformer, in which windings are encapsulated in epoxy resin. Dry transformers are easy to install since they do not require any oil for cooling and are completely dry. Additionally, they need not be kept in a fireproof vault. The protective epoxy coating keeps it dust and rust-free. Dry-type transformers can be installed indoors or outdoors and are suited for a wide range of applications, such as oil & gas, mining, and marine. Also, dry-transformers are often used in applications involving low and medium voltages.

Global Dry Transformer Market Forecast and Trend

Growth Drivers

Booming Oil & Gas Industry

The oil & gas industry is classified as the world’s largest industry in terms of revenue. Almost all nations rely heavily on their oil and gas industries for their GDP (gross domestic product). It is estimated that Saudi Arabia controls about 17% of the world's proven petroleum reserves, according to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The oil & gas industry in Saudi Arabia accounts for roughly 50% of gross domestic product and 70% of export earnings. As the oil & gas industry demands high levels of safety and reliability, selecting the right equipment for its processes is highly essential.

The oil & gas sector is booming, and the demand for dry transformers is rising due to their reliability. Since dry transformers do not contain any combustible materials, they are widely used in the oil and gas industry. Furthermore, the oil & gas industry is more exposed to toxic substances, machinery, and many other things. Therefore, special equipment such as dry transformers is required that can withstand high temperatures and resist corrosion.

The Growing Demand for Clean and Cost-Efficient Energy

The population of emerging countries has risen dramatically over time, resulting in an increase in energy consumption in recent years. Power and energy are in high demand in the Asia-Pacific region due to its growing population. The global population is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030 and 9.7 billion by 2050, resulting in higher oil, electricity, and energy demands, as well as increased oil and natural gas use for energy generation. Therefore, the governments of different countries are emphasizing more on reducing carbon emissions for maintaining a cleaner and greener environment in the years to come.

Additionally, different industries are analyzing environmental effects and operational costs, which has led to new dry-type transformers that are less leaky and have improved efficiency up to 99.6%. Dry transformers are tested to withstand all the odds such as sandy storms and strong winds. As a result, these transformers are widely adopted. Moreover, the transformer is virtually maintenance-free, ensuring its reliable performance. What’s more, dry-type transformers use no oil and use few flammable materials, which minimizes the threat of fire and contamination inside the transformer.

Restraints

Growing Demand for Oil-Cooled Transformers

The major disadvantage of a dry-type transformer over an oil-cooled transformer is related to the efficiency offered by the latter. Since oil-cooled transformers have a longer lifespan than dry-type transformers, they are considered more efficient. In addition, oil-cooled transformers make less noise, thereby reducing noise pollution. Unlike wet transformers, dry transformers are not accustomed to overloaded workloads that can cause overheating, resulting in rapid deterioration of the insulation as well as system failure. The oil-cooled transformers, on the other hand, are well suited to handle the overload, and this restrains the growth of the global dry-transformer market.

Impact of COVID-19 in the Industry

COVID-19 affected all industries and supply chains around the world, with some growing and others stagnating. The COVID-19 wave swept across Europe, and the announcements of lockdowns from governments triggered a domino effect. Borders were sealed, nationwide lockdowns were announced, trades were stopped, and industries were closed or forced to run on reduced capacity. However, by the end of the year 2020, industries began reopening, but markets remained suspicious, and most markets were still recovering from the effects of the COVID-19. Moreover, vaccination drives had given hope that the market would recover, but the second wave of the COVID-19 and the threat of the upcoming third wave of the pandemic has affected the pace of recovery to a great extent.

Global Dry Transformer Market: By Type

Based on types, the global dry-transformer market is segmented into Cast Coil, Vacuum Pressure Impregnated (VPI), Open Wound, and Vacuum Pressure Encapsulated (VPE) transformer. The cast coil type transformer dominated the market in 2020 as these types of dry transformers are very consistent even under extreme weather conditions. Also, these transformers are ideally suited for harsh environments rather than liquid-filled transformers due to their low maintenance requirement and ability to withstand high short circuits.
