Transformer oil is a dielectric fluid mainly used in oil filled electrical transformers as an insulating and cooling medium. It is usually obtained by fractional distillation and subsequent processing of crude oil. The primary purpose of transformer oil is to insulate and cool the transformer windings and core. These also preserve the core and winding as these are fully immersed in the oil and prevent contact of oxygen with the cellulose paper insulation of windings, which has high affinity towards oxidation. Three basic types of transformer oil used are mineral oil (mostly naphthenic), silicone, and bio-based. Mineral oil based transformer oils dominate the consumption as it has good electrical and cooling properties, and provides cost-effective solution.

This report estimates the transformer oil market in terms of volume and value. The volume market is estimated in terms of the demand of the transformer oil per year. The report estimates the market size of the transformer oil industry for product types such as mineral oil which is further classified into naphthenic and paraffinic; silicone, and bio-based transformer oils. This has been broken down into component regions and READ MORE >
