DUBLIN, January 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lz5wzk/transformer_oil) have announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the Transformer Oil Market - Global Industry Trends & Forecast to 2017" report to their offering.
Transformer oil is a dielectric fluid mainly used in oil filled electrical transformers as an insulating and cooling medium. It is usually obtained by fractional distillation and subsequent processing of crude oil. The primary purpose of transformer oil is to insulate and cool the transformer windings and core. These also preserve the core and winding as these are fully immersed in the oil and prevent contact of oxygen with the cellulose paper insulation of windings, which has high affinity towards oxidation. Three basic types of transformer oil used are mineral oil (mostly naphthenic), silicone, and bio-based. Mineral oil based transformer oils dominate the consumption as it has good electrical and cooling properties, and provides cost-effective solution.
The report segments the market 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 market forecast in terms of consumption (thousand litres) and revenue ($million) for aforesaid segments.
The global transformer oil market revenue is estimated to reach $2.46 billion by 2017. Major factors responsible for market growth include increasing power requirements in developing regions, rising investments, enlargement of electricity grids in developed regions and rising transition towards renewable energy resources. The key concerns in the industry pertain to 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. It covers qualitative data about transformer oil properties and its functions. The report also provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, and key burning issues in the market. Key players of the industry are profiled in detail with their recent developments and other strategic initiatives. Some of these include Nynas (Sweden), Ergon (U.S.), PetroChina (China), Calumet (U.S.), and San Joaquin Refining (U.S.).

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
