Global Low GWP Refrigerants market is expected to reach USD 35.7 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period from 2018-2025. Less impact on the environment through low GWP refrigerant and rising demand for refrigeration and air-conditioning application are the key contributors to the market.

Market Overview:

The Global Warming Potential (GWP) is defined as a degree of a greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere and benchmarked against CO2 which has a GWP equal to one. It is a measure of the potency of a greenhouse gas relative to carbon dioxide (where carbon dioxide has a GWP value of 1). The HFC refrigerants generally used today have GWP values that are thousands of times larger than that of carbon dioxide. The use of the refrigerants with low global warming potential (GWP) helps to reduce the effect of the refrigeration systems on global warming. In the future, when GWP values decrease due to phase-downs and energy efficiency demands (MEPS) increase, HVACR professionals will focus on using components that allow for the lowest possible charge and technologies with the best cost/performance for a given refrigerant type.
