Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Dry Type Transformer Market size is poised to cross USD 16 Billion by the end of 2035, witnessing around 9% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of dry type transformer was USD 6 Billion. Stricter safety and environmental regulations around the world are encouraging the adoption of dry-type transformers. The absence of flammable insulating oil in dry-type transformers reduces the risk of fires and environmental contamination, making them a preferred choice in areas where safety and compliance are paramount.

As sustainability becomes a central focus for many industries, including construction and infrastructure, dry-type transformers align with green building initiatives due to their lower environmental impact and energy efficiency. These transformers use air instead of oil as a cooling and insulating medium, which eliminates the possibility of oil leaking into the environment.

Dry Type Transformer Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing demand for energy-efficient transformers- The growing demand for energy-efficient transformers is a key driver of the increasing popularity of dry type transformers. As the world becomes more focused on reducing its carbon footprint, industries are looking for ways to improve their energy efficiency, and dry type transformers are an excellent solution. The United Nations has stated that there is a need to decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 45 percent by 2030 compared to levels observed in 2010. Additionally, they have set the goal of achieving zero emissions by the year 2050.
  • Increasing focus on renewable energy- The increasing focus on renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, has been a major driver of the demand for dry type transformers. These transformers are crucial in facilitating the transmission and distribution of power generated from renewable sources, which tend to be located in remote areas where traditional oil-filled transformers may not be suitable. For instance, wind turbines generate power at high voltages that need to be stepped down before they can be distributed to homes and businesses.
    Dry type transformers are ideal for this purpose as they are able to handle high voltage levels and are more resistant to environmental factors such as moisture and dust.
  • Increased industrialization and urbanization- The rapid pace of industrialization and urbanization in developing countries has led to a surge in demand for electricity. This demand has been met by the installation of new power generation technologies plants, transmission lines, and distribution networks, which require high-quality transformers to ensure efficient energy transfer. Dry type transformers have emerged as a popular choice in these regions due to their durability, low maintenance costs, and high efficiency. Moreover, they are better suited to handle the harsh environmental conditions prevalent in many developing countries, making them a reliable choice for industrial and urban applications.


  • Transformer Temperature Dissipation - Dry-type transformers operate at higher temperatures compared to oil-filled transformers. Proper heat dissipation is crucial to prevent overheating and maintain transformer efficiency. Adequate ventilation and cooling systems are necessary, which can add complexity and cost to installations.
  • Dry-type transformers are often designed for specific applications, which can lead to customization challenges
  • Complexity of Maintenance and Repair

Dry Type Transformer Segmentation

Type (Dry Type Converter Transformer, Dry Type Rectifier Transformer)

The dry type converter transformer segment is estimated to hold 59% share of the global dry type transformer market in the year 2035. The segment growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for dry type converters from end-use industries such as oil & gas, utilities, and renewables as they are more efficient than other types of converters.

Moreover, dry type converters are less prone to fire hazards due to their non-flammable insulation, which makes them ideal for harsh and hazardous environments. They also offer significantly higher short circuit strength as compared to other types of converters, thus making them a preferred choice in many industries.

Technology (Cast Resin, Vacuum Pressure Impregnation)

Dry type transformer market from the cast resin technology segment is estimated to gain a significant share of about ~60% in the year 2035. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the fact that this technology offers many advantages compared to traditional oil-immersed transformers, such as greater fire safety, increased durability, and improved environmental friendliness. Aside from the low noise levels, reduced weight, and compact design, its fire-resistant materials make it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.
