Report Description

Global transformer oil market was valued approximately USD 2 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Surging consumption of electricity in developing countries are escalating the adoption electric grid which in turn has positively influence the market demand for transformer oil. Others factors that are driving the market demand for transformer oil is mainly owing to surging power consumption, increasing expansion of electric grid in developing countries coupled with implementation of regulatory reforms for the development of a reliable grid network along with increasing investments in power sector further contribute to the growth of the transformer oil market. However, factors such as volatility in crude oil prices and increasing adoption of dry transformers are expected to hamper the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on specialty chemical manufacturers. The decline in the prices of crude oil has enabled a majority of transformer oil manufacturers to achieve reduced raw material costs. However, depending upon the capital availability and financial conditions, utilities defer some of their generation and T&D investments, thus affecting transformer manufacturing activities the coupled with issues related to procurement and logistics due to the supply chain breakdown had also negative impact on the transformer oil market. Hence, increasing the cost of production which will have a cascading effect on the selling price of the transformer oil.
