Transformer Oils Market Research Report: By Type (Naphthenic Oil, Paraffinic Oil, Bio-Based Oil, Silicone Oil), By Application (Large Transformers, Small Transformers, Utility & Others)

 According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global transformer oil market is estimated to reach USD 7.35 Billion, with a CAGR of 12.45% from 2022 to 2030 (forecast period). The report also provides an overview of critical factors that are likely to significantly stimulate or impede the growth of the transformer oil market. The report also sheds light on the potential impact of the Covid-19 on the growth of the transformer oil market.

Transformer oil is nothing but an insulating oil used in an electrical transformer that serves as a coolant. These oils are extracted from crude oil by a fractional distillation process. They offer a number of properties, including excellent di-electricity, high resistivity, thermal conductivity, minimum power loss, and chemical stability, among others.

Key Players

Some of the prominent players identified by MRFR in the global transformer oils market are Nynas AB (Sweden), Ergon Inc. (U.S.), Calumet Specialty Products (U.S.), APAR Industries Limited (India), PetroChina Company (China), Sinopec Group (China), Hydrodec Group Plc. (U.K), Cargill Inc. (U.S.), Engen Petroleum Limited (South Africa), Valvoline Inc. (U.S.), San Joaquin Refining (U.S.), Gandhar Oil Refining (India), and others.

Market Segmentation

The global Transformer Oil Market has been categorized on the basis of type and application. 

On the basis of type, the global market for transformer oil has been segmented into naphthenic oil, paraffinic oil, bio-based oil, and silicone oil. Among these, naphthenic oil accounted for around 48% market share in overall transformer oil sales revenue. 

On the basis of the application, the global market for transformer oil has been segmented into large transformers, small transformers, utility & others. 

Market Dynamics

The expansion of power grids in developing countries in the Asia Pacific region is the key driver of the global oil transformer market. Other key drivers include increased power consumption and increased investment in the power sector.
