22-Oct-2018 | Zion Market Research

Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Refrigeration Oil Market by Oil Type (Mineral Oil and Synthetic Oil), By Refrigerant Type (Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), Ammonia, Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC)), and by Application (Refrigerator & Freezer, Air Conditioner, Automotive AC System, Chillers, and Condensers): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2017 – 2024”. According to the report, global refrigeration oil market was valued at approximately USD 1005 million in 2017 and is expected to generate around USD 1340 million in revenue by the end of 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 4.2% between 2018 and 2024.

Refrigeration oil has several benefits, such as low pour point, low contamination, excellent thermal and chemical stability, high dielectric strength, and low viscosity. It majorly lubricates all the moving parts, which includes gears, bearing, and mechanical seals, among other loaded contacts to the compressor. The rising demand for consumer appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, among others, will primarily drive this market’s growth during the forecast period. Moreover, technological advancements and the changing lifestyles of people globally are considerable factors positively influencing this market’s growth.

On the basis of oil type, the refrigeration oil market is bifurcated into mineral oil and synthetic oil. The synthetic oil segment held the largest market share in terms of value in 2017 and is anticipated to be dominant during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the compatibility of synthetic oils with refrigerant used in the refrigeration systems. Moreover, synthetic refrigeration oil benefits in providing high performance in extreme conditions, higher shear stability, better viscosity index, and improved chemical resistance.


Based on refrigeration type, this market is categorized into chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), ammonia, and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC). The hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) segment within the refrigeration type is estimated to dominate the market in the upcoming years. Since HFC contributes to global warming, the demand for natural refrigerants is likely to rise during the forecast period.

On the basis of application, this market is segmented into the air conditioner, refrigerator and freezer, automotive AC system, chillers, and condensers. The refrigerator and freezer segment occupied a major share in 2017 and is projected to remain dominant during the forecast timeframe. The rising demand for packaged food products and the changing lifestyles of people in emerging countries are major growth factors for this segment.

On the basis of geography, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the dominant region during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the rising population, which, in turn, leads to the increase in demand for freezers, refrigerators, air conditioners, and automobiles in the developing markets, such as India and China. Moreover, North America is projected to show considerable growth during the forecast period. The region is propelled by increasing demand for food storage apparatuses and the rising demand for refrigerant oil in automobile industries has accelerated the market in North America.

Major players of the refrigeration oil market are Fuchs Lubricants, BASF SE, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., Meiwa Corporation, ExxonMobil Corporation, Chevron Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Phillips Chemical Company, The Lubrizol Corporation, China Petrochemical Corporation, Indian Oil Corporation Ltd, JXTG Holdings Inc., Behr Hella Service GmbH, Lubriplate Lubricants Company, and Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P., among others.
