Global Gas Insulated Transformer Market: Overview
A gas insulated transformer is a non-explosive, non-flammable, and oil-free transformer. Gas insulated transformers operate on SF6 gas as a medium for cooling and insulation. When compared to oil transformers, these transformers are preferred for installations close to water sources. Various properties of the gas insulated transformers, such as no oil leakage risk, compact size, low spatial conditions, etc., are contributing to the increased popularity of the product.
Global Gas Insulated Transformer Market: Growth Factors
The major growth driver in the global gas insulated transformer market is the rapid urbanization, as it leads to developed infrastructure and dependable networks of power transmissions and distributions. Other factors like the compact size of these transformers, low spatial conditions, and no risk related to oil leakages, etc. fuel the growth of the global gas insulated transformer market. The emphasis on adopting renewable sources of energy across the globe is on the rise. This further contributes to the increasing popularity of the market for the gas insulated transformer. There is an increased demand for medium voltage gas insulated transformers, as they are mostly used in industrial and commercial sites due to their non-explosive characteristics. In addition, rising investments for developing infrastructures related to power transmission and distribution is contributing to the increased demand for installations of gas insulated transformers.
High equipment costs and environment protection regulations, with respect to SF6’s use, are among some factors that might hinder the growth of the global gas insulated transformer market.
