In the Asia Pacific region, oil-immersed distribution transformers make up the majority of the overall distribution transformers market. In this region, utility distribution and industry are the major demand drivers contributing around 93% of the total market in 2019.

Utility Power distribution in the Middle East & Africa region continues to be the main driver of demand having constituted approximately 85% of the annual market in 2020, followed by industry (mostly Chemical and O&G) and generation. That said, the industry vertical is expected to see the largest growth in the MEA region at a CAGR of 8.8% between 2020-25.

In Europe, the dry-type distribution transformers market is mostly driven by off-shore wind power, industry, and underground distribution in dense urban areas. Around 65% of the market in 2020 was from the industry and generation, and the remaining was from utility distribution. The market in Europe is primarily replacement driven; in countries such as Sweden, Russia and Germany, major demand for distribution transformers is coming from replacements. That said, the overall compounded annual growth in this region is expected to be steady for the next few years.

Further West on the map, South America is expected to see a CAGR of 1.5% for oil-immersed distribution transformers and 2.4% for their dry-type counterparts over the next four years. Electrification remains the key investment driver in South America. Even though the current electrification in Brazil is close to 98%, the topic remains a major reason for investments in the grid. As the generation mix in the region is slowly tipping towards distributed generation resources, it is driving more investments in the distribution infrastructure of the region to ensure higher grid stability and flexibility.
