Europe Is Currently Dominating The Global Optical Current Transformer Market With A Share Of 34.7% | Says FMI

The global optical current transformer market is forecasted to be valued at US$ 322.7 Mn by 2032, up from US$ 145.4 Mn in 2022, advancing at a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period. The dispensable requirement of oil and gas insulation promotes the growth of the optical current transformer market share.

Due to their smaller size and lighter weight, optical current transformers continue to be in demand. The adoption of the optical current transformer is not motivated by any improved safety failure mechanism. Sales of optical current transformers increase due to their high accuracy for metering over a wide range of primary currents.

Due to its cutting-edge features and advantages in terms of regulations, magneto optical current transformers are preferred over fibre optical current transformers in terms of market growth.

The optical current transformer market share is expanded by providing device protection and resistance to electromagnetic interference introduced by the ground loop. Because of its small size and low cost, the optical current transformer market share is growing.

Some of the recent developments in the optical current transformer market are:

  • In 2018, Profotech became a resident of the special economic zone ‘Technopolis Moscow’ and set up serial production.
  • In 2022, ARTECHE participated in the hackathon ‘2022-Weetbe’, innovating in the asset management of the High Voltage Power Grid.
  • In May 2022, Hunan 500kV Shuicheng substation was successfully put into operation to realize the remote “one key sequence control” function.
  • In December 2020, NR Electric Co. independently developed the complete set of voltage sag control equipment based on high-speed switch, and successfully passed the full set type test of Xi’an High Voltage Apparatus Research Institute and its performance was fully certified by authority.

They assist in increasing revenues and expand product offerings in standardised form by introducing R&D activities and strategies that encourage expansion, collaboration, and development with other firms.

The increasing use of high voltage devices in transmission, distribution, and power generation drives optical current transformer sales.

The use of optical current transformers is increasing as industries encourage the increased use of computerised control techniques and digital devices. The brittleness and device damage of conventional transformers increases demand for optical current transformers.

The provision of resistance in high voltage operations increases the size of the global optical current transformer market. The inefficiency of inductive type current transformers or porcelain insulators forces power stations and substations to use optical current transformers.
