Secondary Refrigerants Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Secondary Refrigerants Market: Summary

The Global Secondary Refrigerants Market is projected to reach a value of over USD  903.8 million by 2027 at a CAGR of around 5.8%.

Secondary refrigerants are usually liquids and are used to transfer heat from the substance being cooled to a heat exchanger where the heat is absorbed by a primary refrigerant. They are non-toxic and incombustible and are safer to use and help lower environmentally-harmful primary refrigerants. Secondary refrigerants offer various benefits over the primary refrigerant. For instance, do not undergo any phase change, they help minimize pressure losses in the vapor compression cycle, thereby increasing efficiency. Air conditioning and other high-temperature applications use chilled water while low-temperature applications use glycols, brines and oils as secondary refrigerants.

Secondary Refrigerants Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Driver:

  • Phasing Out of CFCs, HCFCs, and HFCs Refrigerants

Fluorinated gases know as F-gases are a range of synthetic refrigerants that trap heat in the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. The most common F-gases are hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), ChloroFluoroCarbons (CFCs), and HydroChloroFluoroCarbons (HCFCs) which are typically used in refrigeration and air-conditioning applications. To reduce greenhouse gas emission and mitigate climate change, the F- gas regulation entered into the force to reduce the use of F-gases and impose a service ban on use with high Global Warming Potentials (GWP >2,500) like R-404A, R-507 and R-422D.  thus, the phasing out of CFCs, HCFCs, and HFCs refrigerants has increased the demand for secondary refrigerants. 

Market Opportunities:

  • Increasing Demand for Natural Refrigerants

Natural refrigerants are synthesized through biochemical processing natural resources. Growing concern regarding global warming and other environmental issues has increased the use of natural refrigerants. Natural refrigerants such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons are processed from natural resources and are more eco-friendly as compared to conventional refrigerants. Natural refrigerants available in the market include ammonia, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons. Among hydrocarbons, the commonly used refrigerants include iso-butane, propane, and propylene. Natural refrigerants are chieflyemployed in industrial, commercial, and domestic refrigeration systems. Apart from these, natural refrigerants are consumed in mobile air conditioning and stationary air conditioning. Thus, the increasing demand for natural refrigerant has expected to create a market opportunity for key players.
