Global Transformer Breathers Market 2017-2021

About Transformer Breathers

Transformer breathing is a process where the increased load on the transformer results in the heating up of the insulating oil, which in turn, expands and is expelled out into the conservator tank fitted on the top of the power transformer. A transformer breather is a type of equipment that is connected to the conservator of an oil-immersed transformer. It consists of silica gel breathers, which are capable of absorbing the moisture from the air that passes through the breather. It enables the dry air to pass through and thus, enhances the life of the transformer oil and in turn, the transformer.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global transformer breathers market to grow at a CAGR of 5.07% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Transformer Breathers Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global transformer breathers market: ABB, Brwonell, Drytech, Eaton, and Hawke International.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AGM Container Controls, Air Sentry, Ashish Engineering, Comem, Drytech, Energy Tech Enterprises, H2O Control Products, HAMP, K.P.S & Co., Maha Trading, Martec Asset Solutions, Maschinefabrik Reinhausen, SMS Omni-feed, Stream Peak International, Trade-link, and Zenith Group USA.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is stringent regulatory framework. Governments in developing economies across the world are adopting stringent policies to reduce carbon emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. We expect this to have a lasting impact on the market. Tightened regulations make it imperative for vendors to manufacture transformers that are highly energy efficient, which require using high-grade copper and steel.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is renewable power generation capacity expansion. Many countries are adopting renewable sources of energy like wind and solar to meet stringent carbon emission goals and reduce their dependence on depleting fossil fuel resources. Many end-users have incorporated alternative forms of energy instead of depending on power generators that operate on fossil fuels. Solar power, hydropower, wind power, and other forms of renewable energy are gaining popularity among all categories of electricity end-users. In 2016, the total wind power installed across the European Union (EU) was 142 GW, as per the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is lack of effective product differentiation. Several local, regional, and international vendors offering similar products at competitive prices operate in the global oil-filled transformers market. To sustain the competitive advantage, vendors are trying to differentiate their products by providing transformers with minimal copper, core, hysteresis, and eddy current losses. The use of SF6 gas as an insulation medium is also being encouraged by some transformer manufacturers. However, SF6-insulated transformers are expensive than oil-filled transformers. So, in a way SF6-insulated transformers market has a negligible competition on the oil-filled transformer market as their adoption is still a long way to go.
