Automotive Refrigerant Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Automotive Refrigerant Market Overview

Refrigerants in automobiles are used in the air conditioning system to absorb and release the heat. As being the essential part of the automotive air conditioning system, growing demand for automobiles all over the world is increasing the demand for automotive refrigerant as well.

The types of refrigerant used in the automobile are now changing as the rising concern about global warming is promoting the reduction of harmful emission to a significant extent. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) were replaced by Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) in 1990s. Following the concern, the automotive manufacturers are now engaged in using more efficient and ecofriendly refrigerants in the air conditioning system.

The most common refrigerant used is R-134a, also known as 1,1,1,2 - Tetrafluroethane. The latest on going refrigerant used in the automotive industry is R-1234yf refrigerant, also known 2,3,3,3-Tetrafluoropropene. R-123yf being non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-flammable in its nature.

This colorless gas is being introduced as a replacement for R-134 refrigerant maintaining a global warming potential rating 1/335 of R-134 which is estimated to be only four times higher than that of CO2. Introduction of new refrigerants in the market with salient features is increasing the demand for automotive refrigerant resulting in the significant growth of the market over the forecast period.

Automotive Refrigerant market: Dynamics

Growing use of air conditioning system in the automotive industry is the key driver for the global automotive refrigerant market. Increasing environmental concerns among all the nations is causing the government to issue stringent norms and regulations regarding harmful emissions resulting in the increased demand for nontoxic refrigerants.

There are some technical constraints and maintenance issues during the usage of air conditioning refrigerant that poses minor resistance towards the growth of automotive refrigerant market

Various amendments introduced by the government for ozone protection such as cut of Australia’s use of HFCs by 20% in 2018 and banned usage of R134a in Europe and the U.S. is leading to increase the demand of new and less harmful refrigerants.

The global automotive industry is turning towards the usage of natural refrigerants, as synthetic refrigerants causes’ significant damage to the environment. Several arguments are going on for and against the usage of CO2 also known as R-744 as a refrigerant in automotive air conditioning systems.
