Global Transformer Oil Market to Grow at 7.26% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Introduction of Bio-Based Variants

Published on Aug 11, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Transformer Oil Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global transformer oil market reached a value of US$ 2.2 Billion in 2021. Transformer oil, or insulating oil, is a type of coolant that is used to provide insulation in an electric power transformer to avoid accidents. It is generally extracted from crude oil through the process of fractional distillation. Transformer oil has high resistivity, excellent di-electricity, thermal conductivity, chemical stability and minimal power loss. Transformers are an essential component of the electrical grid, which transmits and distributes electricity. They are cooled and insulated by the use of transformer oils, such as mineral oils and naphthenic oil, for insulating power equipment, dissipating heat, and contributing to cooling systems.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Transformer Oil Market Trends: 

The global transformer oil market is primarily driven by the expanding power generation sector due to rapid industrialization and urbanization. In recent years, increasing awareness regarding the maintenance of electrical equipment such as transformers has contributed to the adoption of transformer oil for preventive maintenance. Besides this, with the growing focus on rural electrification, especially in emerging economies, extensively investing in the transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure, and grid reinforcement and replacement. This is escalating the demand for transformer oil across the globe. Moreover, the increasing environmental concerns have encouraged manufacturers to introduce bio-based transformer oils, which are produced using renewable raw materials such as vegetable oils. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.26% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
