Global Low GWP Refrigerants Market, By Type (Inorganics, Hydrocarbons, Fluorocarbons), By Applicati

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958375


Increasing demand for cooling and air conditioning is expected to drive the growth of low GWP refrigerants market during the forecast period. This has resulted some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

The low potential for global warming (GWP) coolants have zero depletion of ozone and have important potential to decrease global warming. A coolant is an important fluid that absorbs heat at low temperature and low pressure, subsequently transfers heat at greater temperature and greater fluid pressure. Mostly available in kinds of hydrocarbons, fluorocarbons and inorganics.

Refrigerants are used in a wide range of applications such as ventilation, air conditioning, heating. However, most of the refrigerants used, such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and coolants, have significant potential for global warming (GWP). Growing emphasis on mitigating global warming and the need for sustainable development has encouraged low GWP refrigerants to be introduced and adopted. In addition, the phase-down of HFCs by the European Union, the United States and Canada has boosted the worldwide adoption of low GWP refrigerants. Carbon dioxide, ammonia, hydrofluoroolefins and hydrocarbons are some of the most prevalent low GWP refrigerants. Hydrocarbons are anticipated to see robust development among these low GWP refrigerants due to their outstanding thermodynamic properties, greater effectiveness and low noise compared to the respective HFC designs due to reduced cooling system stress. Growing concern over refrigerants ' adverse effect and global warming has caused the implementation of low GWP refrigerants. It was also noted that low GWP refrigerants also helped to achieve elevated concentrations of energy efficiency for refrigeration machinery.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Low impact on the environment of low GWP coolants

  • Increasing demand for cooling and air conditioning

  • Refrigerants from CFC, CFC and HFC
