Transformer oils are electrical insulating oils stable at high temperature, which serves two important functions in a transformer, viz., suppression of arcing and dissipation of heat generated in the transformer. The ability of transformer oil to fulfil these functions are chiefly responsible for its adoption, and thus drives the market growth. Other important factors stimulating its growth include electrification of rural areas, expansion of power grids and increasing investment in the power sector. However, factors such as volatility in crude oil prices and increasing adoption of dry transformers are expected to hamper the market growth.
