Transformer Steel Market Analysis, Trends, Forecast 2018 2028

Transformer steel is specialty steel produced by the modification of the magnetic properties of conventional steel to induce high permeability. Transformer steel is primarily utilized for the manufacturing of various types of transformer cores. The higher permeability of transformer steel ensures low core losses in electrical components. Transformer Steel is also known as silicon steel, as silicon is added into it, and is mostly used for the laminate process in the cores.

However, the growing prominence of alternative products such as amorphous metal alloys (Fe-B-Si), owing to their better magnetism properties as compared to that of transformer steel, is expected to restrain the growth of the global transformer steel market over the next decade. Also, amorphous metal alloys reduce the core losses of transformer by 75%. Temperature and noise is also lower when amorphous metal alloys are utilized as the core material for the transformer as compared to that of grain-oriented transformer steel.

Long-term supply contracts for transformer steel with electrical machinery manufacturers is found to be one of the key strategies followed by players in the global transformer steel market. Moreover, various manufacturers are expanding their premium transformer steel portfolio. New grades of steel are designed primarily for the manufacturing of energy-efficient transformers that are easy to manufacture as well as cost-effective.
