Transformer Oil Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028
The global transformer oil market size reached US$ 2.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.5 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% during 2023-2028.
Transformer oil is used in electrical power transformers to serve as a coolant and suppress corona discharge. Also known as insulating oil, it is a specialty product that remains stable at high temperatures and offers excellent electrical insulation. As a result, it is also used in high-voltage capacitors, fluorescent lamp ballasts, and high-voltage switches as well as circuit breakers. It acts as a barrier between oxygen and cellulose to avoid direct contact with different components of transformers and prevent oxidation.
One of the major factors driving the transformer oil market is the rising transmission and distribution of electricity across the globe. Owing to rapid urbanization and industrialization, a rise in the consumption of electricity is being witnessed, particularly in emerging markets with a high population density, such as India and China. In line with this, governments in these countries are undertaking initiatives to provide an uninterrupted power supply and expanding the existing grid infrastructure, which in turn is influencing the market growth. Moreover, increasing investments in the improvement of power grids in developed regions like Europe and North America also act as a major growth-inducing factor. Although mineral-based transformer oil currently dominates the market, manufacturers are focusing on introducing safer and green products owing to the increasing environmental consciousness across the globe. For instance, bio-based transformer oils, which are produced using renewable raw materials such as vegetable oils, are gaining traction in the market due to their biodegradable and eco-friendly nature.
