The global refrigerant market reached a value of US$ 21.5 Billion in 2020. Refrigerants are chemical mixtures of fluids and gases that function as a cooling agent in refrigeration cycles and heat pumps. They are most commonly used in freezers and air conditioners across various sectors including residential, commercial and automotive. They work on the concept of phase transition that involves the transformation of liquid to gas at adjustable operating temperatures and vice versa. They can be used either as primary solutions in condensation, compression, evaporation and expansion or as secondary solutions to transport thermal energy from one medium to another. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global refrigerant market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
The rapid growth of the consumer electronics sector and increasing demand for domestic air conditioning systems are among the key factors driving the global market. Growing energy demand along with the awareness regarding the adverse effects of refrigerants on the environment has led to the development of energy-efficient cooling systems in domestic and industrial sectors. This has led to a significant change in the composition of refrigerant gases. For instance, conventionally, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were used as refrigerants but owing to their ozone depleting effects they are increasingly being replaced by sulfur dioxide ammonia and non-halogenated hydrocarbons that are considered more environment-friendly. In addition to this, the rising demand for air conditioning systems in automobiles is also driving the market further. Moreover, the increasing requirement of deep freezers and refrigerators from the cold chain market has augmented the demand for refrigerants in the food and beverage industry. Other factors influencing the market growth include rapid industrialization and infrastructural development along with the improved standards of living.
