Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The industry comprises players that manufacture various types of electric motors, generators and transformers. International trade has a significant influence on industry performance, with exports expected to account for 54.5% of revenue and imports forecast to satisfy 59.5% of domestic demand in 2017-18.

Industry operators have endured difficult conditions over the five years through 2017-18. Industrial production activity is expected to remain weak while the volume of electricity distributed is projected to remain below pre-crisis levels, adversely influencing demand. In addition, import penetration is expected to remain intense and export revenue is anticipated to decline, weighing on the industry... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

Industry operators manufacture a wide range of electric motors, generators and transformers. Although the United Kingdom has a significant generator manufacturing capacity, it has limited capacity to manufacture other products, such as transformers and motors. Globally, a significant proportion of electric motor and transformer production takes place in low-cost countries like China.

Players in the industry also manufacture various types of alternators (not for motor vehicles), rotary and static converters, rectifiers and invertors. In addition, some companies within the industry manufacture parts for electric motors, transformers and static converters.


Electrical generators are expected to account for 53% of industry revenue in 2017-18. Ele.. purchase to read more
