Refrigeration Oil Market Size, Share, Industry Analysis, Top Key Players Review and Forecast to 2023

“\’Refrigeration Oil Market Research Report – Global Forecast to 2023\'”
Refrigeration Oil Market Information: By Oil Type (Synthetic and Mineral Oils), Application (Refrigerator, Freezer, Chillers, Air Conditioner, Automotive AC System, and Others), and Region- Forecast Till 2023

Refrigerant oil is a special high-temperature formulation designed for use in cooling systems. The purpose of oil in a refrigeration system is to lubricate the compressor by reducing the friction on metal parts and wear on the compressor. Refrigeration oil has special characteristics such as excellent chemical and thermal stability, low pour point, high dielectric strength, low contamination, and viscosity.

The global refrigeration oil market is majorly driven by the growing demand for consumer appliances such refrigerators and air conditioners. The technological advancements and changing lifestyles across the globe is an important factor positively influencing the market growth. The other major drivers of the global refrigeration oil market include the high demand for refrigeration systems from food and pharmaceutical industries to increase the shelf life of the products. However, the limitation on the use of fluorocarbons due to the ozone depletion caused by them is a challenge to the market growth. Nevertheless, the research and developments prevailing in the market is likely to drive the market growth.

For instance, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Technology Office (BTO), a part of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, developed research and development (R&D) opportunities for next generation low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants. In 2014, the United States, Canada, and Mexico proposed an amendment to the Montreal Protocol to reduce production and consumption of hydrofluorocarbon (HFCs) by 85% during the period of 2016-2035 for Non-A5 (developed) countries. Furthermore, It is stated in the proposal of the A5 (developing) countries would reduce the production and consumption of HFC by 85% during the later years of 2025-2045. Moreover, in 2013, the European F-gas legislation was issued, which may help to reduce hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) consumption by 79% over the period 2016–2030. In June 2016, the Australian Federal Government announced that it would deliver an 85% phasedown of HFCs. Greg Hunt, then Environment Minister, stated that the phasedown would contribute to around 80 million tons to Australia’s 2030 emissions reduction target. The EPA ruling has legalized the use of hydrocarbon propane, isobutene, and a chemical named R-441A as a substitute for refrigerants.
