COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 outbreak severely hit the smart transformers market industry, causing huge revenue loss. Smart transformer manufacturers faced various problems ranging from obtaining raw materials & components required for production and attract workers from quarantines to deliver end products. Deployments were postponed due to strict lockdown mandates, which had the biggest impact on bringing the production facilities to a halt.  

Besides, the lockdown put a brake on the manufacturing of various components and devices, which spiked transformer prices and lowered the demand subsequently. However, the smart transformers market is rapidly returning to normal, witnessing a steady demand. The market demand is estimated to pick up further following the uplift of lockdown in many countries. 

Industry Trends

Increased gap between the demand-supply of electricity distribution and growing emphasis on power generation are other major smart transformers market trends. Increasing legislative measures toward expanding reliable grid infrastructure in developing nations would further complement the market landscape. Moreover, increasing numbers of smart city projects drive market growth. 

The growing awareness about energy efficiency that benefits the environment, alongside technological advances and improvements in grid connectivity, boosts the smart transformers market demand. Besides, the rising demand for smart transformers in traction locomotive, smart grid, and electric vehicle charging applications bolster the market sales.
