Report Description

Solid-State Transformer Market was valued at US$ 110 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17% over the forecast period (2021-2027). A solid-state transformer (SST), power electronic transformer (PET), or electronic power transformer is actually an AC-to-AC converter, a type of electric power converter that replaces a conventional transformer used in AC electric power distribution. It is more complex than a conventional transformer operating at utility frequency, but it can be smaller and more efficient than a conventional transformer because it operates at high frequency. Extending the typical functionalities of a regular transformer, advantages of SSTs include enhanced power flow control, decoupling between the high-voltage and low voltage networks, enhanced voltage regulation, harmonic isolation, and power quality regulation. Solid state transformers are increasingly being integrated into smart grid systems and are most commonly used in both converter and inverter circuits. For instance, as per IEA, despite a 7% year-on-year reduction in overall expenditures, grids became further decentralized and digitalized in 2019. Utilities around the world deployed more sophisticated technologies, including artificial intelligence and digital twinning.


SSTs have found numerous areas of acceptance such as: providing grid ancillary services such as islanding detection, grid isolation, on-grid operation, and hybrid and autonomous mode of operation with energy management in local micro/nano-grids. Furthermore, the market is driven by the rising activity in the Electric Vehicle (EV) industry globally which is further increasing need for EV charging infrastructure.

The global Solid-State Transformer market is driven by the increasing investments in renewable sources for energy generation, rising global demand for electrical vehicles, and huge investments in the smart grid and energy systems are the key factors complementing the Solid-State Transformers market. Further, the gradual shift from traditional transformers and rising inclination towards implementation of SST are presumed to propel the industry growth

Alstom SA, Eaton Corporation, Schneider Electric, Siemens AG, Hitachi ABB etc. are some of the prominent players operating in the Global Solid-State Transformer Market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate countries with more innovative Solid-State Transformer applications.
