Rising demand for specialty oils across various end-use industries such as automotive, power generation, pharmaceutical, food & beverages, manufacturing, transmission & distribution, etc. is providing impetus to the growth of specialty oils market.

In recent years, rising electricity consumption has created enormous demand for transformer oil and the trend is likely to continue during the forecast period. This transformer oil is used to protect high-voltage electrical components used in electric utilities, including transformers, capacitors, switches, and circuit breakers. Due to its strong dielectric strength, viscosity, temperature adaptability, and other benefits, it is significantly employed as insulation between transformer windings and other parts.

The market of specialty oils has been substantially influenced by the rapid installation of power generation plants, power transmission, and distribution activities. According to World Energy and Climate Statistics – Yearbook 2022, global electricity consumption grew by 5.5% in 2021, which is 4.8% above its 2019 level.
