Increasing power demand due to growth in industrial, commercial and residential establishments fueling the demand for electricity across the globe which in turn is driving the demand for transformers subsequently increase the demand for transformer oil. Besides this, favorable government initiatives in key consuming economies such as India to completely move to electric vehicles on the road by 2030 which is expected to fuel the electricity consumption in India which is subsequently fueling the demand for transformer oil. Furthermore, rapid growth in rural electrification due to various government initiatives in emerging economies such as India and China is expected to impel the growth in demand of transformer which is subsequently projected to drive the demand for transformer oil over the forecast period. However, growing inclination towards dry type transformer and corrosive nature of transformer oil due the presence of sulfur content is projected to hamper the growth of transformer oil over the forecast period (2017-2025).
