About the Report

The global instrument transformer market is driving due to the growing electricity demand, and rising concerns about grid stability will boost the global market. Furthermore, increasing fund flow toward rural electrification in line with the renovation of existing grid networks has further obligated the authorities to incorporate an efficient protection and monitoring mechanism. Therefore, rising grid complexities across the electric infrastructure in conjunction with the emerging peak electricity demand from end users will comprehensively augment the industry landscape.


The major market driver for the global instrument transformer market is the increasing demand for stable and continuous electrical energy worldwide. Many developed countries are now focusing on the refurbishment of aging power infrastructure. In addition, the development of smart grids will spur demand for I.O.T. compatible instrument transformers. Automation of the electrical grid system will increase the demand for a modern instrument transformer.


The stable operation of the electrical grid is necessary to fulfill the electricity demands of billions of people on earth. However, any faults in the electrical grid can result in power loss for people, damage to expensive electrical equipment in the grid, and sometimes result in catastrophic damage to the electrical infrastructure. Instrument transformers are used for safety and cost-effective automation and control systems to avoid any such scenarios.


Instrument Transformers are the select type of transformers used to measure voltage, frequency, current, energy, and power. They are used in conjunction with ammeters, voltmeters, wattmeters, and energy meters. The primary function of Instrument Transformers is to step down the A.C. system voltage and current. The voltage and current level of the power system is very high. It is complicated and costly to design the measuring instruments to measure such high-level voltage and current. Instrument transformer provides isolation from the system to the electrical measuring instruments. It is also used with protection relays for the protection of power systems.


The main types of instrument transformers include a current transformer, potential transformer, and combined instrument transformer. These transformers contain indoor and outdoor enclosure types. They transform different voltages such as distribution voltage, sub-transmission voltage, high voltage transmission, extra high voltage transmission, and ultra-high voltage transmission. The instrument transformers are used in relaying, switchgear assemblies, metering, and protection, others and implemented in different verticals such as power utilities, power generation, industries, and O.E.M.s.


The instrument transformers market is moving towards the evolution of digital instruments. Digital instrument transformer refers to the electronic transformation of optical signals in digital measurements directly usable by intelligent digital devices in digital substations. Digital instrument transformers include current transformer optical unit, voltage transformer optical unit, and combined (current and voltage) measurement optical unit.


Current transformers (type of instrument transformers) are the one that assists in converting primary current to secondary currents, which are suitable to the connected measuring instruments. These transformers are series-connected electromagnetic devices that consist of copper wound coils, electrical grade laminations, and iron ore. They can multiply or reduce Alternating Current (A.C.).The advantages of the current transformers include measuring high currents, high electrical isolation, effective measurements, easy maintenance and installation, and safe A.C. measurement.


Potential transformers (type of instrument transformers) are the one that assists in converting primary voltage to secondary voltage, which is suitable for the connected measuring instruments. These transformers are parallel-connected electromagnetic devices that consist of copper wound coils, electrical grade laminations, and iron ore. They can multiply or reduce Alternating Current voltage (A.C.).The advantages of the potential transformers include measuring high voltage, high electrical isolation, effective measurements, easy maintenance and installation, and safe A.C. measurement.


Combined instrument transformers are used to step-down current and voltage to defined values and thus provide standardized, usable levels of current and voltage in various power monitoring, measurement, and protection applications while insulating the measurement and protection equipment from high system voltage.


Instrument Transformer Market Opportunities:

  • An increase in manufacturing activity and electrification initiatives in Asian countries like India, Bangladesh, and Vietnam is significant for the instrument transformer market.
  • Automation and modernization of electrical infrastructure in the North American (United States, Canada, Mexico) and European regions (United Kingdom) will stimulate demand for instrument transformers.


Instrument Transformer Market Restraints:

  • Limited availability of low-cost instrument transformers for small scale industries. 
  • The manufacturing of instrument transformers from the unorganized sector will disrupt the market share of existing companies. 


Instrument Transformer Market Challenges:

  • Slow modernization of existing electrical infrastructure will have a negative impact on the demand for the instrument transformer.


The overall market size of an instrument transformer can be divided into a current transformer, a potential transformer, and a combined instrument transformer. On the basis of installation, it can be segmented into an outdoor instrument transformer and an indoor instrument transformer, based on end-users like residential & commercial, industrial, and utility. The power generators and power distribution firms play a dominating role in the current scenario of the instrument transformer market. The instrument transformer market can also be segmented based on the cooling method, such as dry type and oil immersed.


The high voltage transmission segment accounted for a major share in the instrument transformers market as instrument transformers offer electrical protection against overload currents, insulation failure, and emergency switching.


The power utility segment accounted for a major instrument transformers market share. Power utilities take care of maintenance, operation, and grid infrastructure installation, coupled with the realization of consumed electricity and energy efficiency projects. These fuels demand the power utility segment.


The Global Instrument Transformer Market comprises sales of instrument transformers for power transmission and distribution, residential and commercial projects, and industrial applications.
