Sarasota, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2017 -- According to the report, global transformer oil market was valued at USD 2,099.1 million in 2016, is expected to reach USD 3,159. 0 million in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% between 2017 and 2022.
Transformer oil is utilized as coolant and insulator in transformers by energy and power industry. Transformer oil provides two main functions in transformers i.e. dissipation of heat generated inside the transformers and suppression of arcing. They are derived from the fractional distillation of crude oil. Transformer oils are stable at extremely high temperature and show considerable insulating properties. Most commonly used products are mineral-oil based like paraffinic oil which is used for cooling applications owing to its viscosity features and excellent oxidative stability.
The global market for transformer oil is expected to grow at a significant rate. Rising power consumption, increasing investment in the power sector and expansion of electrical grids in the developing countries are the major factors driving the growth of the transformer oil market globally. Furthermore, rising production of transformers is anticipated to fuel the demand for transformer oil market. However, increasing demand for the dry type transformers may hamper the market growth in near future. Moreover, the corrosive effect of sulfur present in transformer oil may abstract the growth of the market.
