Transformer Oil Market Overview:
The global transformer oil market value was USD 2,695.14 million in 2021, and it is expected to increase at a rate of 11.3% from 2023-2032.
Significant progress has been made in the transformers sector due to an increase in power sector capacity to meet increasing electricity needs. There has been a significant increase in demand for transformers due to the increasing emphasis on rural electrification in emerging nations like India and China.
Global Transformer Oil Market Analysis
Mineral-based oils were the dominant product, accounting for 81.78% of 2021's volume share. The popularity of mineral-based oils has been due to their availability and compatibility, which makes them popular in many applications such as high voltage switches, circuit breakers, capacitors, and circuit breakers.
Paraffinic oil is used because it is affordable and readily available in many regions. It is not widely available in the global market because it is rare to find crude naphthenic oils in countries like China, Brazil, and Australia.
The fastest-growing products are bio-based oils, with an average CAGR between 2023-2032 of 14.5%. High investments in the renewable energy sector and stringent regulations regarding energy use & emissions are expected to positively impact the growth.
The thermal stability of silicones is higher than that of mineral oils. However, its limited availability and high price have made it less popular. Due to their enhanced properties and compatibility, silicones are replacing traditional mineral oils.
The market for transformer oil was dominated by small-scale transformers in 2021. These systems are used extensively to meet the growing electricity demand in small areas and rural areas.
Segment growth has been greatly influenced by increasing urbanization and electrification of rural areas in Southeast Asian nations like India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. In order to offset high filling costs and increase market volume, many consumers tend to buy bulk to offset these high costs.
From 2023 to 2032, the large-scale segment is expected to grow at a rapid CAGR. Because of the stricter environmental regulations that encourage lower carbon emissions and greater energy efficiency, eco-friendly transformers are highly in demand. The segment growth is driven by technological advancement, increased industrial output, as well as progressive R&D to increase energy generation and recovery equipment.
Renewable energy production is a major use of utilities. Such transformers are often used in offshore wind energy production, such as solar power plants and windmills. Maintenance oils are required for equipment that is able to withstand extreme conditions, such as high moisture and air pressure. This segment is expected to grow slower than the two other segments.

The rapid urbanization of major rural areas in the Asia Pacific, as well as drastic industrialization, has led to an increase in electricity consumption. This region has seen almost a double in electricity consumption in the last few decades. The industry has seen rapid growth due to increased consumer demands and the exponential expansion of distribution networks.
These oils can be used to insulate power equipment, dissipate warmth, and help with cooling systems. Modernization and replacement of obsolete transformers have had a major impact on the growth of developed economies like North America, Europe, and Asia.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Electricity & Cogeneration Regulatory Authority, and other federal agencies enforce strict regulations on energy wastage. They have helped to drive oil demand in order to reduce emissions & electric wastage.
Installation of transformers can be a complicated and costly process. Market growth has been hampered by the volatile prices of copper and steel.
The Asia Pacific was the top consumer and accounted for 53.6% revenue share in 2021. The major driver for such products is the need to modernize and transform existing electricity distribution networks in developing countries such as India, Vietnam, and Thailand.
The majority of cities in China are equipped with electricity poles and connection lines. They also have large distribution networks. This creates the need to upkeep and maintain equipment using oil-efficient oils.
North America is the second-largest market and is expected to continue growing at a moderate rate due to the maturation in the manufacturing & industry sectors, especially in Canada and the U.S. Growth in the country is expected to be driven mainly by the modernization and up-gradation of the existing transformers, along with falling crude oil prices.
