Rising Energy Demands Stoke the Southeast Asian Power and Distribution Transformers Market, Finds Frost & Sullivan

SINGAPORE, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Developing countries in Southeast Asia have proposed extensive power development plans till 2015, while the developed countries are in the process of revamping their power infrastructure. Following a rise in the demand for electricity from the commercial, domestic and industrial sectors, a spate of power generation projects, T&D development, and industrial projects are driving the power and distribution transformers market.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, Southeast Asia Power and Distribution Transformers Market (2011 Update), finds that the market earned revenues of US$827.0 million in 2011 and estimates this to reach US$1.19 billion in 2016.

Countries such as Malaysia and the Philippines, which already have power grid networks, are looking to replace their ageing power infrastructure. Retrofit and reconstruction activities post the natural calamities in Thailand and the Philippines will also contribute to the growth of the transformer market in the next three years.

"Transformer manufacturers, especially in Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore, will do well to address the escalating demand for energy-efficient and environment-friendly 'green' transformers," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Suchitra Sriram. "Industrial development in developed countries, particularly in the sectors of oil & gas, mining, consumer electronics, manufacturing and construction, are expected to further boost the market." Even though power utilities are fast tracking their power generation projects, the transformer market will be bogged down by the delay in the execution of infrastructure projects due to the 2009 financial downturn, natural calamities and political instability in the region.

The market is also feeling the heat of competition from low-cost imports from China. These Chinese products, while being lower-priced, also comply with technical specifications. This poses multiple challenges to local manufacturers, which are unable to match their price points due to the increasing prices of raw materials.

The market is expected to rebound once projects' held-up capital is released and power infrastructure developmental projects recommence.

"Participants will do well to note that ultra-high voltage transformers are likely to become popular in this region, as large quantities of power need to be transferred across long distances with low transmission losses," noted Sriram. "Simultaneously, there will be a significant market for dry transformers in the end-user markets of commercial high rise buildings, wind energy projects and oil & gas projects."
