Hydrofluorocarbon Refrigerant Market, By Product Type (R-407C, R-410A, R-134A, Others), By Applicati

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1943029


The Hydrofluorocarbon Refrigerant Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the growth of the automotive, food processing industry in the Asia Pacific.  Increasing demand from applications such as air conditioner, automotive air conditioner, refrigerator, cold storages, space shuttle, and others is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Refrigerants are commonly available in liquid or gaseous form. Mainly, they are used in refrigeration processes. Hydrofluorocarbons constitute hydrogen, carbon, and fluorine as the main elements. Hydrofluorocarbons are usually abbreviated as HFCs. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), Hydro-chloro-fluorocarbons (HCFC), and Hydro-fluorocarbons (HFC) are third generation of refrigerants.

Segment Insights

Hydrofluorocarbons are used in various industries. In the automotive industry, hydrofluorocarbons are used in air conditioners in vehicles. Depending on the air conditioning required, different kinds of coolants are used. Commercially, air conditioners are used in office spaces, especially in offices where there are computer systems involved to keep the temperature of electronic components below hazardous levels.

Hydrofluorocarbons are used in the food industry in cold storages. The food industry is largely dependent on refrigerants, as they help in preventing bacterial degeneration of food. They are used in the transportation of frozen meat, fish as well as vegetables over a large distance. In the aerospace industry, refrigerants are used in cryogenic engines used to propel shuttle into space.

Hydrofluorocarbons are degenerative in nature and have adverse effects on the ozone layer. They are the main contributors to greenhouse gases and hence, after the 1980 Global Environmental Conference of the UN, strict regulations have been imposed on the use of hydrofluorocarbons. The Asia Pacific region is witnessing a surge in demand for hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants due to the significant growth of the automotive industry. However, the hydrofluorocarbon refrigerant market in Western Europe is experiencing negative growth environmental issues.       

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Growth of the automotive industry in Asia
  • Growth of food processing industry
  • Environmental degradation due to hydrofluorocarbons

Regional Analysis
