The global hydrofluoroolefins market is projected to witness a robust growth during the forecast period due to growing demand for refrigerators and air-conditioning equipment especially from industrial applications coupled with the use of environment-friendly refrigerants mainly in North America and Europe region. Environmental regulations such as SNAP, EPA, F-gas regulations, Montreal protocol, EU legislation etc. are focusing on global warming mitigation, which in turn stimulated the development and use of the fourth generation of low-GWP refrigerants across the end-user industry. Governments are aiming to phase-down the emission of HFCs as it is the detriment to the environment, is anticipated to create the opportunity for HFO market to grow as a replacement of HFC in any application. Although, availability of natural refrigerants coupled with high cost of HFOs is estimated to hinder the market growth. Moreover, toxic flammability of HFO-1234yf, as well as the production of toxic by-products such as trifluoroacetic acid (TFA), expected to be a key challenge for the market growth throughout the forecast period. Market players are extensively focusing on R&D activities to innovate and commercialize different blends of hydrofluoroolefins suitable for different applications. Advancements in technology, as well as rising investments in R&D for the introduction of more efficient and cost-effective hydrofluoroolefins, is expected to propel the product demand over the forecast period.
Investments in the development of new hydrofluoroolefin blends and increasing production capacity to cater the growing demand for low GWP refrigerants is estimated to be major strategy followed by market giants over the forecast period. Some of the major players operating in the global hydrofluoroolefins market include Chemours, Huntsman, Arkema, Dupont, Gas Servei, S.A., National Refrigerants, Solvay, Harp International among others.

Hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) are unsaturated organic compounds composed of hydrogen, fluorine and carbon. These organofluorine compound are of interest as refrigerants. Unlike traditional hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are saturated, HFOs are olefins, otherwise known as alkenes.
HFO refrigerants are categorised as having zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and low GWP and so offer a more environmentally friendly alternative to CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs.
HFOs are being developed as “fourth generation” refrigerants with 0.1% of the global-warming potential of HFCs.HFOs currently in use include 2,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropene (HFO-1234yf) and 1,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropene (HFO-1234ze).1-chloro-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (HFO-1233zd) is also under development.
