Pad-Mounted Transformer Market Overview

Energy efficiency and digitization are two prominent trends identified in the global pad-mounted transformer market. Boosting output is one way to achieve power targets. Energy efficiency is another means of augmenting the overall power capacity via less wastage and more efficient, lower consumption and also aids in meeting lower carbon emission targets under the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG). Digitization further boosts the energy efficiency, as it helps in bringing the down the cost of electricity by better optimization of resources and more efficient distribution using Internet of Things (IoT) and various other technologies.

A pad-mounted transformer used for electric power distribution, typically refers to a specific style of enclosure for larger transformers that is capable of being installed in areas accessible to the general public. The transformer will typically have features, including tamper resistant construction, tamper proof bolts and screws, lockable compartments with hinged doors, bottom entry of primary and secondary cabling, and baffled ventilation openings. The transformers are made in power ratings from around 75 kVA to around 5000 kVA and often include built-in fuses and switches. These are used with underground electric power distribution lines at service drops, to step down the primary voltage on the line to lower secondary voltage supplied to utility customers. The pad-mounted transformer market is segmented based on insulation type, phase, power rating, application, and region.

The pad-mounted transformer market is bifurcated, on the basis of insulation type, into dry insulation and liquid insulation. Out of which, the liquid insulation is used widely on account of its various advantages, such as liquid-filled transformers are normally more efficient than dry types, and they usually have longer life expectancy. Also, liquid is a more efficient cooling medium in reducing hot spot temperatures in coils. In addition, liquid-filled units have better overload capability.

The pad-mounted transformer market is bifurcated into single-phase and three-phase pad-mounted, based on phase. Between the two, three-phase transformers hold notable share in the market, due to large power holding capacity, compatibility, and high applicability. Further, increasing use for power consuming devices in the residential sector also boosting the demand for three-phase transformers. Additionally, in many countries utility power is supplied in three phases; therefore, using this type of transformer is more suitable over single-phase pad-mounted transformer.

The pad-mounted transformer market is categorized into <1 MVA and >1 MVA, on the basis of power rating. Of these, <1 MVA transformers hold considerable share in the market, due to the increasing demand for <1 MVA pad-mounted transformers in the residential and commercial sectors, owing to the increasing number of power consuming devices in houses and commercial buildings, which usually require less power comparatively to industries.

The pad-mounted transformer market is categorized into residential, commercial, and industrial applications, based on application. Among these, commercial and industrial applications together hold significant share in the market, due to rapid industrialization mainly in developing countries. Further, growing commercial construction activities, such as shopping malls, hotels, and recreational centers, also require pad-mounted transformers because of their safe design.

Geographically, the pad-mounted transformer market is categorized into North America, Europe, Latin America (LATAM), Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Among all regions, APAC holds substantial share in the market, due to the presence of rapidly emerging economies, such as China and India, which are currently witnessing increasing demand for pad mounted transformers to provide electricity to rural areas. Furthermore, upgradation of transmission and distribution network in Malaysia, China, and India also boosting the demand for the pad-mounted transformers.

Pad-Mounted Transformers Market Dynamics


Rising investment for the development and upgradation of transmission and distribution network across the world is a key factor driving the pad-mounted transformer market. Further, enhancement in process control, broad application of information technology to machinery, and technology advancements are also likely to drive the market. Increasing population and improvement in lifestyle are increasing the consumption of energy. This also has a positive impact on the growth of the market.


To some extent, high installation and maintenance cost is one of the key factors hindering the growth of the pad-mounted transformer market. Maintenance cost comprises regular inspection, cleaning of bushings, and checkup of oil quality, dissolved gases, furanic compounds, power factors, winding resistance, temperature, partial discharge, physical condition, and load tap changer condition.
