The addition to the "2013 Report on the Transformer Oil Market - Global Industry Trends & Forecast to 2017" report has been announced by Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lz5wzk/transformer_oil).
The market report is based on geography (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, ROW); types (mineral oil-naphthenic and paraffinic, silicone, and bio-based); and applications (small transformers, large transformers, and utility), and provides forecast in terms of consumption and revenue.
The global transformer oil market revenue is estimated to reach $ 2.46 billion by 2017 due to increasing power requirements and electricity grids in developing regions, rising investments, and rising transition towards renewable energy resources.
The key issues in the industry are the corrosive nature of sulphur present in transformer oil and flammable nature of mineral oil based transformer oils. Transformer manufacturers have started using bio-based oil which has higher dielectric strength and flash point, and lower pour point.
The report classifies and defines the consumption of transformer oils in the electrical equipment industry covering qualitative data about transformer oil properties and its functions.
Key players of the industry, such as Nynas (Sweden), Ergon (U.S.), PetroChina (China), Calumet (U.S.), and San Joaquin Refining (US), are profiled in detail in the report.
