Dielectric Fluid Demand Analysis (2017-2021) in Comparison to Market Forecasts (2022-2032)

Dielectric fluids are used in high voltage applications as insulators to prevent electrical discharges. Dielectric oils and other electrical insulating fluids are used in transformers to minimize transmission losses, provide electrical insulation, cooling, etc.

Dielectric fluids have low viscosity, rapid heat dissipation, excellent electrical insulation, oxidation resistance, high flash point, and other characteristic features that make them highly preferred in several applications.

Increasing focus on clean energy and establishment of renewable energy generation plants is expected to promote the establishment of new energy infrastructure and drive the demand for new energy components and utilities which subsequently drives shipments of dielectric fluids.

Rising demand for electricity, increasing investments in the energy sector, technological advancements, expansion of the aviation industry, and rising use of EDMs (Electric Discharge Machines) are projected to be other factors that favor dielectric fluids market growth across the forecast period.

Worldwide dielectric fluid sales are projected to increase at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2022 to 2032.

What Market Factors are Complementing Dielectric Fluids Sales?

“Rising Demand for Clean Energy across the World”

Focus on sustainability has increased exponentially over the past few years and this trend is projected to drive demand for dielectric fluids that are eco-friendly. Increasing demand for clean energy is also driving power generation activities via renewable resources and this is expected to provide new opportunities for dielectric fluid suppliers as energy infrastructure expands.

Dielectric oils, dielectric fluids, dielectric coolants, and dielectric hydraulic fluids are some of the products that are expected to be high in demand across the forecast period.

“Increasing Use of Electrical Discharge Machines (EDMs)”

Electrical discharge machines (EDMs) are being widely used in several industries for metal removal and other applications. These EDMs operate by utilizing a series of sparks and hence utilize EDM dielectric fluids to ensure smooth operation.

Demand for EDMs is increasing rapidly in aerospace and defence manufacturing and this is expected to propel the consumption of EDM dielectric fluids over the years to come.
