LAMEA

Asia-Pacific holds a dominant position in 2020 and would continue to maintain the lead over the forecast period.

Transformer Oil Market, By Region

Asia-Pacific garnered the highest share in the transformer oil market in 2020, in terms of revenue, and is anticipated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the presence of huge consumer base, rapid development of the renewable energy sector, expansion of high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system networks, and the existence of key players in the region. Moreover, presence of the high-power consuming countries such as China, Japan, and India are anticipated to contribute toward the growth of the market in the region.

Covid-19 Impact On The Market

Lockdown imposed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in temporary ban on import & export and manufacturing & processing activities across various industries and electrical utilities, which decreased the demand for electricity from these consumers. In addition, halt in building & construction of new electric utility infrastructures, renewable power plants, grid network, and other power plants, owing to unavailability of workers and increase in demand–supply gap are projected to hamper the market growth during the pandemic period. This resulted in decline in market growth in the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2020. However, the transformer oil market is expected to recover by the second quarter of 2021, as COVID-19 vaccination has begun in various economies across the globe, which is expected to improve the global economy.
