Global Low GWP Refrigerants Market is Expected to Reach USD 35.7 Billion by 2025 : Fior Markets

Global Low GWP Refrigerants Market by Type (Inorganics, Hydrocarbons, Fluorocarbons), Application (Commercial Refrigeration, Industrial Refrigeration, Others), Region, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 to 2025

Newark, NJ, Feb. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global low GWP refrigerants market is expected to grow from USD 14.3 billion in 2017 to USD 35.7 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period from 2018-2025.

The low GWP refrigerants market has been witnessing the steady growth from the past few years, owing to low environmental impact and long term viability of low GWP refrigerants. Energy that the air conditioning and refrigeration sector consumes and ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) refrigerants are the major contributor to global climate change. The commercial refrigerants that are commonly used in the air conditioning and refrigeration sectors are dominated by various fluorinated chemicals, including hydrocarbons and HFCs, which adversely impacts the ozone layer. Thus, increasing concern about severe impact on environment, boosting the growth of low GWP refrigerants market in the air conditioning and refrigeration sectors.

The global warming potential (GWP) is defined as a degree of a greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere and benchmarked against CO2 which has a GWP equal to one. It is a measure of the potency of a greenhouse gas relative to carbon dioxide (where carbon dioxide has a GWP value of 1). The HFC refrigerants generally used today have GWP values that are thousands of times larger than that of carbon dioxide. The use of the refrigerants with low global warming potential (GWP) helps to reduce the effect of the refrigeration systems on the global warming. In a future, when GWP values decrease due to phase downs and energy efficiency demands (MEPS) increase, HVACR professionals will focus on using components that allow for the lowest possible charge and technologies with the best cost/performance for a given refrigerant type.

Global low GWP refrigerants market is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period, owing to increasing concern over the global warming. In addition to this, less impact on environment through low GWP refrigerant and rising demand for refrigeration and air-conditioning application are the key contributors of the market. However, high capital cost and less education and awareness in HVAC contractors and technicians, anticipated to prove a major restraining factor for the market growth over the forecast period.


Key players operating in the global low GWP refrigerants market include are Linde Group, Honeywell, Sinochem Group, Airgas Inc., Engas Australasia, A-Gas, and Puyang Zhongwei Fine Chemical¸ Harp International, Tazzetti, Shandong Yueon Chemical Industry, GTS, Chemours, Mexichem, Daikin and Arkema among others. To enhance their market position in the global low GWP refrigerants market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies such as recent developments, product innovation, joint venture, mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, and partnership.

  • For instance, in June 2018, Honeywell International Inc., announced the launch of non-flammable and low GWP refrigerant – Solstice N41 (provisional R-466A), which is mainly suitable for stationary air conditioning applications.
  • In July 2018, The Chemours Company, announce the USD 20 million investment in a new low GWP technology-based chiller using Opteon XP10 (R-513A) refrigerant.
  • In September 2018, The Danfoss Group announced the expansion of its Explosive Atmosphere Conditions (ATEX) and flammable refrigerant management lab in Trevoux, France,

The hydrocarbons segment held the largest market share in low GWP refrigerants market and valued at USD 6.47 billion in 2017

The type segment is classified into hydrocarbons, inorganics, and fluorocarbons. The inorganics are divided into carbon di-oxide, ammonia, and others. The hydrocarbons are categorised as HFCS and HFOC. The fluorocarbons are sub segmented as isobutene, propane, and others. The hydrocarbons segment is dominating the low GWP refrigerants market with USD 6.47 billion in 2017. Hydrocarbons have outstanding thermodynamic properties, and air-conditioning systems and refrigerating operating using these substances are highly energy-efficient. Hydrocarbons have a relatively high critical temperature and are miscible with conventional refrigerating oils.

The commercial refrigeration segment held market share of 28.60% in 2017

The application segment includes commercial refrigeration, industrial refrigeration, domestic refrigeration, stationary air-conditioning, mobile air-conditioning and others. The commercial refrigeration segment held market share of 28.60% in 2017. Commercial refrigeration comprises of cold displays, refrigerating chambers, ice machines & cold counters, and condensing units commonly used in supermarkets, shops and centralized units. The commercial refrigeration segment is growing rapidly as it is characterized by a high refrigerant leakage rate and high energy consumption.
