Increased deployment of power transformers to cater to the growing need for electricity stemming from expanding population and rapid urbanization are likely to boost global transformer testing equipment market. 

Transformer test equipment comprises special test modules or systems that is used in the monitoring and testing of mechanical and electrical parameters of transformers. Transformers, however, are capable of giving dependable services for an extended time period, if maintained and serviced on a regular basis. 

Based on type, the global transformer testing equipment market has been divided into

  • Frequency analysis equipment
  • Loss management equipment
  • Megohmmeters
  • Applied potential testing
  • Turns-ratio testing
  • Other transformer testing applications 

Loss management transformer testing and frequency analysis make extensive use of transformer test equipment, which boosts the global transformer testing equipment market. 

The frequency analysis equipment has been designed in such a way that it easily identifies winding fault movements in several power and distribution transformers. Frequency analysis equipment are transportable devices. It locates faults usually caused due to manhandling during shipping process, aging, loose structures of clamping, and other usual frequency disruptions. 

On the other hand, loss management equipment are the ones that come with movable and self-contained systems designed for the purpose of examining single-phase distribution transformers. The loss management equipment systems are most suitable for use in shops, fields or in transformer yards. This type of transformer testing equipment makes measurement of impedance voltage, efficiency and impedance percentages, load losses, and excitation currents. 

Megohmmeters find use in a wide variety of applications such as solid-state diodes, cable reels, and rectifiers, which support the growth of the global transformer testing equipment market.

Transformer testing equipment are utilized for the purpose of maintaining, inspecting and testing the functioning of transformer. The transformers need maintenance which has to be carried out at a fixed interval of time as well as when the transformers are underperforming. Transformer testing equipment are used for servicing, monitoring electrical & mechanical parameters and oil insulation of the transformer, for the safety of the systems and to avoid any damage. Transformer testing equipment help to ensure protection, reliability and longevity of transformer. Requirement of a transformer testing equipment is mainly important when anomalies and faults within the circuit or grid has to be detected before and after occurrence of complete transformer breakdown.

Transformer testing equipment market is expected to grow in forecast period, due to increasing need of safe and continuous transmission of electricity from the power generation plant to the end users and for this purpose the transformers is tested continuously in real time. Common types of transformer test equipment include- applied potential testing, mega ohmmeters, frequency analysis equipment and loss management equipment etc.

Transformer Testing Equipment Market: Market Dynamics

Growing industrialization and urbanization are responsible for increasing the demand of transformer which is expected to fuel the growth of transformer testing equipment market.Increasing energy demands has led to the growth of generation of electrical energy from both non-renewable & renewable sources, which has led to higher installations of power transformers in the global market. This is a key factor that accelerates the growth of transformer testing equipment market during the forecast period. Rising standards of living across the globe has driven the power transmission & distribution companies to prolong the network circuit in order to fulfill the demand of the each and every consumers.

Skilled and trained technician is required for the maintenance and testing of the transformers as it is a high voltage electrical device. Additionally, the cost of transformers testing equipment is comparatively higher than the other electrical devices. This factor is anticipated to slow down the growth of transformer testing equipment market.
