Global transformer oil market outlook

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global transformer oil market will grow steadily during the predicted period and in terms of revenue, will post a CAGR of about 9% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the modernization of existing transformers to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The rise in demand for electricity across the globe has led to the installation of new transformers and also the replacement of old transformers with new ones. Moreover, the inability of existing networks to meet the growth in demand for power has resulted in the renovation of the transmission and distribution infrastructure globally. Several countries such as Malaysia, India, and Russia have already started undertaking capacity expansion programs, and this trend is expected to continue in the other countries as well. This will have a positive impact on the growth of the transformer insulating oil market in the coming years.

The next few years will witness the increasing popularity of bio-based and naphthenic transformer oil in the market. This is mainly due to the increase in fire accidents in mineral oil-based transformers and the non-biodegradable nature of mineral oil. Biobased oil has several advantages such as incombustibility, non-toxic, excellent insulating properties, biodegradable, high fire point. The oil also has a low-cost advantage due to oil spill remediation, owing to which several countries across the world, especially in North America, have already started using bio-based transformer oils.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

and appears to be moderately fragmented. Most of the vendors lack product differentiation and mainly compete on the basis of product pricing and services.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Apar Industries
  • Ergon
  • Nynas
  • PetroChina
  • Sinopec

The other prominent vendors in the market are Cargill Incorporated, Engen Petroleum Limited, Hydrodec Group Plc, San Joaquin Refining, and Valvoline.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the transformer oil market

  • Bio-based
  • Mineral-based
  • Silicone-based

Accounting for more than 90% of the total shares of the market, the mineral-based oil segment dominated the transformer insulating oil market during 2015. This mainly attributes to the large-scale manufacturing of transformers that operate using this insulating medium. Moreover, the use of mineral-based transformer oil in power and distribution transformers, switchgear, and circuit breakers all over the world especially in APAC will also aid in the growth of this segment.
