Asia-Pacific: The largest market for transformer oils
Asia-Pacific has been the largest transformer oil consumer since 2011 followed by North America, Europe, and ROW. The major transformer oil consuming countries in Asia-Pacific are China, India, and Japan. The consumption is high in these countries mainly due to the increasing economic development, rising population owing to growing electricity demand. The trend is estimated to remain the same during the forecasted period. The consumption is high in the Asia-Pacific region, mainly due to the increasing economic development, population, and electricity demand.
Mineral oil based transformer oil: Extensively consumed across the globe
Considering transformer oil consumption by types (Mineral oil-naphthenic & paraffinic, silicone, and bio-based), mineral oil constituted the largest consumption share as of year 2012 and is expected to be largest segment by 2017. Naphthenic oil constituted the largest share of mineral oil consumption in 2012.
Small transformers: Major application segment for transformer oils
Transformers having capacity rating below 5 MVA are considered as small. Majority of small transformers are distribution transformers, which form an important part of a power generation and distribution system. Thus, it is necessary that these transformers have the specified oil content to insulate and dissipate heat into the atmosphere. With an increasing population, rising power requirements, growing transition towards renewables, the power distribution network is increasing. This is driving the use of distribution transformers that, in turn, is propelling the demand for transformer oils. In 2012, small transformers witnessed the largest transformer oil consumption, followed by large ones, and utility.
