A Glimpese into Transformer Industry in India

The Transformer Industry in India has been experiencing steady growth thanks to various factors such as urbanization, industrialization, the Make-in-India campaign, the increasing demand for electricity & the government’s emphasis on clean energy & environmental sustainability. We all know that the Transformer Industry plays a critical role in the power sector, enabling the efficient transmission & distribution of electricity.
