What are the Growth Prospects for Manufacturers of Gas Insulated Transformers?
Governments of various economies, in collaboration with power corporations, have established reforms to lessen power losses in transmission and distribution, along with the utilization of eco-friendly gas and materials in the construction of transformers. This factor is likely to push manufacturers to venture more into developing such equipment, leading to savings in transmission.
The market is growing due to considerable increase in power consumption in developing economies as a result of several electrification projects. GITs are being used by a number of countries, particularly for gas insulation substations. GITs can be coupled directly with gas insulated switchgear (GIS), eliminating the need for a separate transformer room. This arrangement gives rise to a gas insulated substation (GISS), a common configuration for inner city applications and in buildings.
Other factors such as increasing investments in transmission and distribution infrastructure, government initiatives aimed at expanding clean energy supply, and growing focus on renewable power generation are expected to drive market growth even more.
Key players are focusing on the introduction of SF6 gas alternative transformers owing to stringent environmental regulations regarding their utilization.

What are the Stumbling Blocks That Gas Insulated Transformer Suppliers Face?
The average product life of a transformer in operational conditions is between 25 to 30 years, and they need to be tested from time to time to maintain efficiency and avoid operational challenges. Due to lack of maintenance and testing facilities, the failure rate of transformers is increasing due to discrepancies in maintenance.
Though testing facilities are available in developed regions, developing regions lack proper, certified testing personnel, resulting in higher failure rate.
Also, in gas insulated transformers, SF6 (sulphur hexafluoride) gas is used for insulation and cooling. But SF6 is a greenhouse gas and has a global warming potential 23,000 times greater than carbon dioxide, owing to which, many countries are limiting and banning the use of SF6 in heavy industries.
This particular reason has heavily impacted the GIT market negatively. This is anticipated to restrain development of the market in key developing regions.
What is the Regulatory Impact on Global Sales?
A key number of regulatory bodies have prescribed different norms for designing, installation, and usage of insulation material. Environmental regulations regarding the use of sodium hexafluoride content and high cost of equipment are major factors confining the growth of the gas insulated transformer industry.
Various health and safety organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA) have issued the warning regarding the formation of toxic compounds from electrical discharge of sodium hexafluoride gas. Thus, the penetration of alternative gas-based transformers has been rising.
Which Regional Market is Expected to Offer Rich Opportunity to Sell Gas Insulated Transformers?
With an absolute dollar opportunity of around US$ 578.8 Mn, the Middle East & Africa is expected to be the most lucrative market for gas insulated transformer manufacturers. South Africa leads the Middle East & Africa market and is expected to experience significantly higher growth across 2021 to 2031.
How Big is the Opportunity for Gas Insulated Transformer Manufacturers in the Middle East & Africa?
The report has projected the Middle East & Africa to remain one of the most lucrative markets throughout the course of the forecast period. This regional market is expected to expand significantly due to rise in investments in smart grid technologies and smart cities, and increase in the number of data centers owing to surge in information technology hubs and commercial institutions.
What Makes China One of the Leading Markets for Gas Insulated Transformers in East Asia?
Around 54% of the market in East Asia is acquired by China. The country is all set to be in the driver seat for gas insulated transformers. Availability of cheap labor gives China an enormous advantage to dominate the targeted market in East Asia. China also leads the market because of strong domestic demand and control of manufacturing capacity.
China is one of the most populated countries in the world. Consequently, demand for electricity is high in the country. The government is augmenting their power generation capacities, especially in hydroelectric power projects. This has led to a rise in investments in transmission and distribution sectors to connect renewable energy generation projects to grids. In turn, this is expected to fuel demand for gas insulated transformers in the country.
