Expansion of Electric Grid and Continuous Transition Towards Renewable Energy Sources!

The transformer oil is useful for suppression of arcing and dissipation of heat generated in the transformer. These abilities of transformer oils are the major factors increasing the adoption, in turn propelling the transformer oils market growth. Also, the ability of resistance of transformer oil to oxidation is also one of the factors swelling the demand for transformers and further propelling the market growth.

Moreover, the expansion of power grids and electrification of rural areas is also major aspects driving the transformer oil market. To cater to the increasing demand for electric grids, the government and several major players are investing their money heavily to improve the technology. Thus, increasing investment in the power sector is further bolstering the transformer oils market growth. However, fluctuations in raw materials prices are expected to hamper market growth. Also, the adoption of dry transformers may also act as a restraining factor for the market growth.

In the past few decades, the demand for transformers has been growing considerably across the globe. The demand for mineral oil-based transformers is surging at its extraordinary level. Thus, the mineral oil segment of the transformer oils market is projected to hold the largest market share over the forecast period. The rapid pace of urbanization and industrialization across the globe is estimated to expand the mineral oil demand, in turn further propelling the market growth.
