Published: Dec 2017 | Report Code: 58902-12-17

Refrigerant is a mixture of fluids, which work as a cooling agent in refrigeration cycles and heat pumps. Refrigerants work on the phase transition principle that is they turn into gas from liquid and vice versa at inconstant temperatures. Refrigerants are either used as primary fluids in absorption refrigeration frameworks or as secondary refrigeration fluids to transmit thermal energy across different mediums. Since 1856, the demand for refrigerants has swiftly increased in the commercial and industrial application areas. Refrigerant is found in either liquid or gaseous state and readily absorbs environmental heat to provide air conditioning or refrigeration when combined with evaporators or compressors.

Inorganic refrigerants including ammonia, carbon dioxide and water have relatively low toxic emissions since they do not comprise of any carbon‐hydrogen bonds. Inorganic refrigerants are expected to foresee considerable growth over the forecast period due to rising inclination of consumers towards environment friendly refrigerants. Also, hydrocarbon based refrigerants including isopropane and propane are natural derivatives of crude petroleum and are widely used in several industry due to their ecological attribute i.e. they are environment friendly. Owing to increasing growth of the global economy and rising per capita disposable incomes in developing regions, the demand for refrigerants is expected to increase in the coming years. Moreover, increase in the use of refrigerants in food products and automobiles coupled with improved living standards, which further drives the demand for air conditioning are some key factors propelling the growth of the global refrigerants market. Additionally, increasing usage of chillers and mobile ACs especially in commercial refrigeration is another major factor driving the overall growth. However, the environmental concerns such as ozone layer depletion and global warming associated with the use of hazardous refrigerants have led to the formation of strict protocols and regulations mainly on the use of HCFCs and CFCs refrigerants. This is expected to hamper the market growth.

Based on type, inorganic refrigerants segment dominated the global market in 2016 and is estimated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to increasing consumer awareness regarding environmental protection coupled with strict regulations on the use of hazardous and toxic refrigerants such as halocarbons and azeotropes. Also, increasing demand for air conditioning especially from automobiles is further projected to drive the inorganic refrigerants segment over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the dominant region owing to increasing urbanization and presence of favorable macro-economic factors. Moreover, rise in living standards has bolstered the overall demand for cooling appliances and refrigeration in the commercial, industrial, construction and residential sectors. North America is projected to account for the second largest share due to increasing demand for air conditioning equipment from the commercial sector.
