The refrigerants market size is estimated to be USD 21.3 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 30.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.7% between 2020 and 2025. Factors such as increasing demand for consumer appliances and growing cold chain markets will drive the refrigerants market. The major restraint for the market will be the regulations imposed against the usage of fluorocarbons such as HCFCs and HFCs in North America and Europe. However, the increasing demand for natural refrigerants will act as an opportunity for the market.
“Carbon dioxide is expected to be the fastest-growing type segment in the refrigerants market.”
Carbon dioxide is used as a refrigerant in various applications such as supermarket/hypermarket, transport, industrial, and chillers. Its thermos-physical properties such as good heat transfer coefficient, negligible pressure loss, and low viscosity make it a potential refrigerant for these applications. Carbon dioxide is estimated to be the fastest-growing refrigerant during the forecast period. Inorganic refrigerants such as carbon dioxide are mostly used in supermarket/hypermarket and the pharmaceutical & food industry. Factors such as the growing organized retail sector and increasing infrastructure spending on supermarkets with large sales areas are driving the demand for carbon dioxide in the region.
“The split ACs application is projected to account for the largest share, in terms of volume and value, of the overall refrigerants market between 2018 and 2023.”
Split ACs is estimated to be the largest application segment in 2019 and is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period.
