Transformer Monitoring Markets, 2013-2020: Technologies, Forecasts and Leading Vendors

GTM Research forecasts the annual market for transformer monitoring hardware in the U.S. to grow drastically from $113 million in 2012 to more than $755 million in 2020. Utilities across the U.S. are beginning to turn to transformer technologies to improve distribution reliability and efficiency as well as customer service and operating costs. In addition, more intelligent transformers will play a key role in enabling other smart grid applications such as power quality monitoring, closed-loop volt/VAR control, improved outage detection, and theft reduction.
