The company’s latest report states that growth will primarily be driven by extensive power plant capacity additions, economic growth, and the need to improve access to electricity in emerging economies, such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.

Senior Analyst, Global Data, Siddhartha Raina covering power says, “China is an attractive destination for power transformer companies, firstly because of the size of the grid, which is the largest in the world, and secondly thanks to substantial investment in the expansion and upgrade of the country’s grid infrastructure. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia is planning large-scale investment, amounting to a total of around US $ 100 billion, which is to be spent within the next 10 years on doubling domestic power generation from the current level of 40,000 MW to 80,000 MW.”

The analyst adds that while there have been comparatively few new power transformer installations in North America and Europe, aging equipment and grids provide major opportunities for

companies in the power transformer replacement segment.
