Transformer Oil Market to Witness Significant Growth by 2030

transformer oil market

The global Transformer Oil Market is projected to reach USD 3.0 billion in 2030 from USD 2.0 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 5.9% according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™.  Transformer oil is a special kind of oil that is primarily used in transformers to facilitate insulation and cooling. Transformer oil caters to the T&D, railways and metros, power generation, industrial, and commercial end users. The most commonly used transformer oil is mineral oil-based, which includes naphthenic and paraffinic types. The other variants of transformer oil include bio-based and silicone-based transformer oils. The increasing energy demand has pushed developing and developed economies to expand their electric grids and modernize their grid network, respectively. These developments are expected to drive the transformer oil demand. On the contrary, environmental concerns associated with mineral-based transformer oil and competition from the unorganized sector can negatively impact the growth of the Transformer Oil Market.
