According to procurement analysts, governments in countries such as India and China are increasing their investments in electricity distribution projects to provide electrification to rural areas in their respective countries. Rapid growth of these economies has helped the governments of these countries to generate funds for these projects. For instance, the Government of India has allocated US$750 million for rural electrification between 2017 to 2018. This is leading to higher sales of transformers in these countries, as they are a key component of electricity distribution systems.

Step-down transformers are installed at several locations in an electricity distribution route to reduce the voltage from the initial voltage range to a voltage range suitable for home appliances. Moreover, the demand for UHVDC has also increased, wherein they are being installed to transmit electricity from power generation facilities to the nearest electricity grids. These increasing investments in electricity distribution projects in emerging economies are leading to the increase in demand for transformers, which is driving the global transformers market.

Category driver

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to shift from strategic sourcing to category management. Top electric utility companies are moving from strategic sourcing to category management, as it promises higher cost savings. Category management helps in selecting appropriate sourcing model. It also helps companies to develop a KPI-based cost savings process across the organization.

Some plans that can be implemented across the organization include the following:

  • Creating cross-functional teams for improving sourcing process and consolidating requirements
  • Aggregating demand for the product across the organization
  • Including price and demand forecasting as a part of the procurement
  • Sourcing data necessary for procurement from all relevant departments

Solutions can be categorized into:

  • Power transformers: These transformers are big and used for high power transformation (greater than 33KV)
  • Distribution transformer: Its used for the distribution of electricity at low voltage, less than 33KV in industrial and 440v-220v in domestic purpose. These generators are low efficiency at 50-70%, small size and easy in installation
  • Measurement transformer: These transformers are used to measure electrical qualities like voltage, current as potential transformers and current transformers
  • Protection transformers: These transformers are used in protection of predominantly electrical-based component/devices by high accuracy
