Global Hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) Market Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) market is estimated to garner a substantial revenue by growing at a robust CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed primarily to the growing usage of HFOs in applications such as a foam blowing and automotive-based air conditioning systems. Along with this, increasing utilization of the material to manufacture polyurethane foams, which are widely used in the construction and automobile sectors, coupled with high production of vehicles globally are also expected to drive market growth significantly in the forthcoming years. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, about 91.786 million vehicles were produced globally in 2019, out of which 67.149 million were cars and remaining 24.637 million were commercial automobiles. Furthermore, on decomposition, HFOs break down to trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) in atmosphere, a non-toxic compound with zero-ozone depletion properties. The environment-friendliness of the product is projected to offer abundant growth opportunities to the market in the near future.

The market is segmented by application into commercial refrigeration, domestic refrigeration, foam blowing agents, aerosol propellants, mobile air-conditioning systems, precision solvent cleaners, and others. Out of these, the foam blowing agents segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) market. This can be accounted to the high utilization of HFOs as a blowing agent for manufacturing polyurethane foam, which are further used in construction and automotive industries. Apart from these, the mobile air-conditioning systems segment is assessed to observe significant growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing investments from companies to develop more eco-friendly alternatives for air conditioning.  Additionally, on the basis of product type, the HFO-1234yf segment is predicted to acquire the largest share by the end of 2030, which can be credited to the high energy efficiency and emission of lesser greenhouse gases by this type of HFO. 

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.

Global Hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) Market Regional Synopsis

Regionally, the global hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa region. The market in Asia Pacific is estimated to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period on the back of the rise in construction activities, and growing production of automobiles in the emerging economies of the region. For instance, the Gross Value Added by the construction sector in India was valued at more than USD 190 billion in 2019-2020, up from about USD 180 billion in 2018-2019. Moreover, the North America expected to acquire the largest share during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the introduction of environmental regulations for controlling global warming in the region, such as Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, strong presence of major market players is also projected to boost the market growth in the region in the coming years.
