The report comprehensively analyzes the current market trends, opportunities, challenges, and regulatory environment. The report’s insights and analysis are invaluable for businesses looking to stay ahead of the competition and capitalize on the latest market trends and opportunities.

Westford USA, Feb. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — North America is set to remain the major revenue contributor for the hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) market due to favorable environmental regulations. Exceptionally low GWP of HFOs when compared over HFCs and Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and few facility amendments for a transition from HCFCs are some of the prominent factors driving the growth of this market. Improved attention on developing a substitute for HCFCs and HFCs and growing application in foam blowing and refrigeration are the key trends in this market.

According to SkyQuest, more than half of the world’s population, approximately 4 billion people, currently live in cities. This trend towards urbanization is expected to continue, with an estimated 7 out of 10 people projected to live in urban areas by 2050. One of the significant impacts of urbanization is the rising demand for refrigeration and air conditioning, driven by the increasing living standards and modernization of lifestyle. The use of hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerants has become more prevalent in recent years due to their lower global warming potential compared to traditional refrigerants.

Stringent Government Regulations Regarding the HFCs to Propel Demand for Hydrofluoroolefin (HFO)

Over the past few years, several European countries, including Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and France, have started shifting away from using hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in the automotive and construction industries, particularly for HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) applications. The European Directive on Mobile Air-Conditioning Systems (MACs) has played a significant role in phasing out HFCs in passenger vehicles. The directive has gradually banned the use of HFCs in MACs, to reduce the environmental impact of these gases. This gradual ban has increased demand for hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) in the region, as it is a more environmentally friendly alternative to HFCs.

SkyQuest, a well-known research firm, has released an all-encompassing report on the hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) market, which serves as a comprehensive guide for market stakeholders.
