The Europe hydrocarbon refrigerants market size reached US$ 209.4 Million in 2022. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach US$ 324.6 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% during 2023-2028.

Hydrocarbon refrigerants (HCs) are called natural refrigerants as the chemicals used in the manufacturing of these refrigerants are derived from the natural bio-chemical processes. These refrigerants have very low impact on the environment in terms of ozone depletion and global warming.

Europe has made stringent rules and regulations restricting the use of HFC and HCFC refrigerants which is turn is expected to increase the demand for natural refrigerants in the region. The governments of various countries in the region are taking various initiatives to limit the amount of fluorinated gases that are being sold in Europe and are banning the use of these gases in some new types of equipments as well. Moreover, hydrocarbon refrigerants are extensively being used in domestic refrigeration systems, commercial refrigeration systems, mobile air conditioners, stationary air conditioners, etc. With the changing lifestyles, food habits and increasing demand of time and energy saving appliances, the demand of hydrocarbon refrigerants has also increased in recent years in the European region. Apart from being environment-friendly, HCs are quite east to implement, require minimal investment during conversion and have a superior COP (coefficient of performance). Since cooling accounts for more than half of the energy consumption of any building, switching to hydrocarbon refrigerants can result in significant cost saving as well. In addition to this, hydrocarbon refrigerants can be purchased at cheaper prices, have a low GWP & GHG rating (Global Warming Potential and Greenhouse Gas emissions) and offer superior energy efficiency as compared to their alternatives.
