A transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits by using the principle of electromagnetic induction. It is an extremely important equipment which distributes power efficiently across the electric grid. In modern power stations, power is generated at a low-voltage and step-up transformers are used to increase the voltage to transmit power over long distances with minimal loss. Then, another step-down transformer is used to reduce the voltage before it is distributed to homes and industries. Power transformers, distribution transformers, measurement transformers, and protection transformers are the major types of transformers based on usage. The rapid expansion of power generation and distribution projects in the APAC region is expected to drive the demand in the global transformers market. Transformer manufacturers are supplying their products to utility companies who are replacing their old and aging transformers with modern ones. The market looks lucrative for transformer manufacturers
