Rapid industrialization followed by surging demand in the automobile sector, especially passenger cars in emerging economies is likely to fuel the refrigerant market. Improved in the standard of living, rising disposable income and rising trend of nuclear families with dual income are the drivers boosting the market growth. An ability of refrigerant to carry heat within HVAC unit through phase transition has increased its application in refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

As per Value Market Research, Refrigerant Market is expected to be worth USD 20.18 BN by 2024 with a CAGR of 4.9%.
In 2017, Fluorocarbon is the leading refrigerant type owing to energy efficient and less flammable. Wide application areas of refrigerant in commercial air conditioning systems & refrigeration are likely to fuel the market growth in forecasting period. Growing demand for frozen food & chilled beverages has contributed to the growth of the fluorocarbon refrigerant market. However, Montreal Protocol mandated to phase-out use of fluorocarbon as a refrigerant due to the potential of ozone layer depletion. However, inorganic refrigerants are the fastest growing segment owing to non-toxic, better thermal efficiency, inflammable, environment-friendly and cheap.
Refrigeration has dominated the application segment in 2017, owing to growth in automobile, consumer durable and food & beverage sector. Refrigeration segment is expected to reach USD 13,436.5 MN by 2024. Increasing demand for the domestic air-cooling system due to the rising disposable income of the population from developed countries is fueling the market growth. Whereas, air conditioning has also widened its application areas in automotive on account of inclination of customers toward high comfort in luxury vehicles and rising global demand for mobile air conditioning solutions.

Owing to global warming, rising need of cooling systems coupled with booming economies of countries such as India & China is presumed to foster the refrigerant demand in forecasting period. 

Major players of the refrigerant market are Daikin Industries Ltd., SRF Ltd., Honeywell International, Arkema SA, Mexichem Fluor S.A. de C.V., Dongyue Group, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., Navin Fluorine International Ltd. Increasing R&D for non-flammable with low global warming potential refrigerant by Honeywell International & others will propel the market growth.

As per this study the global refrigerant market was valued at USD 14.48 BN (by revenue) in 2017 and is anticipated to reach USD 20.18 BN by 2024 with a CAGR of 4.9%. By volume, the market was estimated at XX.X KT in 2017 and is expected to reach XX.X KT by 2024 with a CAGR of X.X%.
A refrigerant is a fluid or a mixture which is used to carry heat in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit. They operate in the refrigeration cycle and undergo the phase transition from liquid to a gaseous state and then back to liquid. This change in refrigerant’s phase is brought by compressor and condenser units of a refrigeration system.
Refrigerants should have some favorable thermodynamic properties to ease their functionality in the refrigeration system. It should be non-corrosive to metals and other mechanical components; it should be non-toxic, non-flammable and should not cause damage to the ozone layer. Apart from these environmental properties of a refrigerant, its thermodynamic and thermo-physical properties like the latent heat of vaporization, specific heat, etc. are also considered, during its selection process.
Market Dynamics
Key factors driving the industry growth include the rise in nuclear families; increasing disposable income, improved in the standard of living and dual income families. In India, rapid industrialization followed by infrastructural developments along with the increasing number of passenger fuels worldwide has created new opportunities and gateways for OEM. However, few fluorochemicals, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and bromofluorocarbons (BFCs) used majorly in refrigerants, are hazardous to the environment and cause depletion of the ozone layer. Therefore, adverse effects of CFCs and BFCs on the environment is likely to hamper the market growth.
