New Report on Distribution Transformers Market

APAC to drive global distribution transformers market over the next four years

Asia-Pacific (APAC) will continue to lead the distribution transformers market of the global power sector with a share of 48% and reach $6.94bn in 2022, says GlobalData.

The latest report, Distribution Transformers Market, Update 2018, reveals that the global market value is likely to reach $14.32bn in 2022, growing at a modest CAGR of 1.6% between 2018 and 2022.

Nirushan Rajasekaram, Power Analyst at GlobalData says: “Systemic transformation of the global power sector is contributing to the requirement for power technologies, which support low carbon power generation. Markets in the US and Europe are primarily replacement markets, with initiatives undertaken to enhance the adaptability of the grid to changing market conditions. Other countries in APAC and Middle East are constructing new grid networks to support and sustain the growing power generation segment and demand requirement.”


The need for grid expansion and upgrades within APAC is greatly influencing the distribution transformers market. China and India, with their large populations and industrial bases, are driving the regional market.

Rajasekaram adds: “China and India have laid out plans for grid expansion to improve rural electrification, accommodate growing renewable asset portfolios, and support their economic growth. In addition, favorable economic conditions and market reforms among smaller markets such as Indonesia and Vietnam will result in strong growth, where new infrastructure is expected to be developed.”

However, despite APAC being the largest market for distribution transformers, EMEA is forecast to experience the highest market growth over the forecast period, with the market estimated to reach $3.7bn in 2022.

The push for sustainability and clean power generation, increasing electricity and peak demand, and economic diversification are likely to increase the need for distribution transformers within the Middle East and Africa. However, the established networks in Europe will require the replacements of transformers more suited to enhance the integration of smart technologies into the grid, according to the report.

Rajasekaram concludes: “Rapid changes in the power generation segment, rising electricity consumption and the existing lack of suitable facilities for power transfer would propel the installations of distribution transformers globally. Growing integration of distributed technologies at low voltage networks is leading to complex power flows within the network. Augmenting the distribution grid is needed to ensure reliable operations and thereby driving the transformers market.”

New Thematic Research – Cloud Computing in Healthcare


Growth of cloud computing space offers immense opportunity for pharma in 2019

The total healthcare cloud computing market size is forecast to be almost $35bn in 2022, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.7% between 2018 and 2022.

The latest report ‘Cloud Computing in Healthcare – Thematic Research’ found that in recent years, investing in cloud computing technology has become an increased priority for healthcare organizations and networks. However, there is still inertia to overcome due to data security and privacy concerns, infrastructure availability, regulatory compliance worries, and a lack of the staff skills required to manage and maintain the technology.

As a result, the pharmaceutical cloud computing market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.9% between 2018 and 2022, from $4.7bn in 2017 to $12.1bn in 2022.


Alexandra Annis, MS, Managing Pharma Analyst at GlobalData, says: “For healthcare, a prominent shift is expected in cloud systems from simple data storage to using the technology to lower costs and increase efficiencies within the system. Although pharma makes up a small proportion of the cloud computing space, which brought in over $233bn in 2017, it is foreseen to lead to a fully integrated platform in pharma that can compute tasks such as personalized patient care and clinical trial optimization.

The pharmaceutical industry will be able to drive to the next level of innovation and analytics, for example by using the cloud’s functionality to match data effectively with patients. This personalized approach will provide physicians with the tools to make the best treatment decisions for patients.

The power of the cloud also offers the potential to speed up the drug development process, without compromising efficacy or safety. This will draw from its ability to collect data from patients around the world in real-time.”

New Report – Construction in Peru


Construction in Peru Set to Reach US$36.6bn in 2023 as it Gathers Growth Momentum

Peruvian construction industry’s output value was estimated to be US$28.7bn in 2018. This is expected to grow to US$36.6bn in 2023 (measured at constant 2017 US dollar exchange rates), close to an annual rate of 5%, according to GlobalData.

Following two years of contraction, the Peruvian construction industry recovered in 2017 and registered growth of 2.4% in real terms in 2017 and by a further 4.5% in 2018. This latest report: ‘Construction in Peru – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023’ states that this increase was due to positive developments in economic conditions, a revival in investor confidence and investments in transport infrastructure, energy and housing construction projects.

Danny Richards, Lead Economist at GlobalData, comments: “The industry’s output value is expected to continue to expand between 2019 and 2023, with investments in infrastructure, health and education, and housing projects continuing to drive growth.”

This has already been reflected in the rise in construction permits. According to the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics (INEI), the total construction permits issued in the country grew by 13.0% in 2018.

Infrastructure construction is expected to increase in importance over the forecast period, to account for just over 29% of the industry’s total value in 2023. Growth over the forecast period is expected to be supported by the government’s plans to develop transport infrastructure in the country, with an aim to reduce traffic congestion.

Richards adds:The total construction project pipeline in Peru – as tracked by GlobalData, and including all mega projects with a value above US$25m – stands at US$126.1bn. The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is relatively skewed towards early-stage projects, with 64.7% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-planning and planning stages as of February 2019.”
