The South African electricity crisis is characterised by a significant unbalance between power demand and supply. This is partly the result of underinvestment in transmission and distribution infrastructure. This development has translated into total energy losses estimated at 8.0% in 2008. As a result, power and distribution transformers are seen as key components in mitigating the effects of the current electricity crisis.
This research service presents a comprehensive analysis of the high, medium and low-voltage power and distribution transformer markets in South Africa. Its objective is to assess the dynamics of this market and provide an understanding of the competitive environment.
