The rising demand for air conditioners, refrigeration systems, and heat pumps, among others, opens a gateway for numerous opportunities in the refrigerant market. At present, the refrigerant manufacturing companies are experiencing a huge surge in demand for environment-friendly products. Fueled by stringent regulatory norms and increasing end-user interest, companies are moving towards products that take a lower toll on the environment than the existing line of products.

The existing conventional refrigerants such as R407A, R410A, R134a, and R544, among others, possess high global warming potential. Due to the rising wave of technological advancements to further expand its application areas, next-generation refrigerants are gaining huge popularity. Even several international organizations and government bodies are playing a vital role in shaping the refrigerant industry.

According to the market analysis report by BIS Research, the global Next-Generation Refrigerant market recorded a market value of $23.55 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach the mark of $33.64 billion by 2029, with a CAGR of 3.22% during the forecast period 2019-2029. Owing to the rise in the active government regulations, such as Montreal Protocol, F-Gas regulations, Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP), and others, to curb the usage of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), the demand for natural refrigerants is expected to grow significantly.

The prominent players operating in this global market have increased their business expansion activities over the past few years to create awareness about their expanding product portfolio and technologies and compete with its product portfolio. Various governments and private research institutes are putting in substantial efforts to reduce the production time and flammability issues of the refrigerants, thus, increasing the awareness about the benefits of next-generation refrigerant for the various industries.

The companies have increased their R&D investments and devised new environment-friendly refrigerants to meet the standards imposed by the government against the use of high GWP and high ODP. For instance, in 2019, the Chemours Company expanded its global footprint by inaugurating a new refrigerant facility of the Opteon range in Texas.

Market Segmentation

Market Outlook By Type

Out of the various types of next-generation refrigerants, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) have occupied more than half of the overall market share in the forecast period. However, they are subject to a decline in the near future driven by stringent regulatory norms of various nations and organizations. The natural refrigerant segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate due to significant initiatives taken by leading market players.

Market Segmentation by Application

On the basis of its applications, the air conditioning industry is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing end-user in the global market. Several companies around the globe are adopting next-generation refrigerants to become energy efficient and have sustainable long-term growth. The air-conditioning segment accounted for a market value of $11.16 billion in 2018 and is expected to retain its dominance within the entire application segment in the global next-generation refrigerant market.

Market Segmentation by Region

Due to an excessive industrial base, encouraging government policies, and financial support in R&D, the Asia-Pacific region is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period 2019-2029. The region is primarily dominated by China, Japan, South Korea, and India, as these nations have been notable in making the transition toward next-generation refrigerants. Apart from the APAC region, North America and Europe also hold a prominent share in the global market.
