The rapid economic growth in most of the emerging countries (China and India) in the recent years resulted in rampant growth of commercial, industrial and automotive sector, which in turn created significant demand for refrigerants.
Among all the geographies, Asia-Pacific accounted for largest portion of refrigerant demand in 2012, totaling just around half of the world market. The increase in regions demand is mainly due to rising demand for cooling products primarily driven by increasing middle class population in developing countries such as China and India.
The demand for HCFC was high during 2003 to 2009 but the Montreal Protocol which demands phase out HCFC has significantly reduced its growth prospects. This in turn, is driving the HFC market as a substitute to HCFC. However use of HFC;s is beginning to come under strict regulations, especially in Western Europe. So now there is shift of consumer preferences towards natural refrigerants. The most commonly used natural refrigerants are ammonia, carbon dioxide, propane and iso-butane. Since fluorocarbons have high GWP, the demand for natural is increasing tremendously.
