Report Code: CMR 1151 Report Format: PDF + Excel (Delivery in 48 Hrs)

Fluorochemicals Market Overview 

The Fluorochemicals Market size is projected to reach $25.1 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period 2021-2026. The Fluorochemicals is an organic compound that contains fluorine and is widely used in electronics, refrigerators, and the automotive industry. Fluorochemicals provide UV resistance and high durability in various applications such as air conditioners, and refrigeration with excellent properties like high tensile strength and electrical insulation. Fluorocarbons are used as fluoropolymers and refrigerants, which have very low solubility features and due to this, they are not miscible in organic solvents like acetone and ethanol. COVID-19 pandemic has a profound impact on the demand and supply of fluorochemicals. The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a considerable impact on the overall development of the global HVAC (heating ventilation and air condition) system. In addition, the infrastructure and construction activities had been totally shut down from the first quarter of 2020, due to which new buildings, offices could not be commissioned. The aforementioned factors have highly affected the demand of HVAC system, which restrained the growth of the market.

Fluorochemicals Market Drivers

Growing Demand in Food Industry for Refrigerant

Changing lifestyle and increasing demand for convenience food products is driving the market of fluorochemicals. The rising demand for refrigerators is necessary for the industrial areas as well as the domestic sector. The refrigerator gives proper storage facilities for food products, due to which the demand for refrigerators is increasing day by day. Refrigerator stores food products and daily needs for a long time. According to ASSOCHAM, the Indian food industry will potentially attract $33 billion investments by 2024. Thus, the rising demand for refrigerators from the food industry will contribute to the growth of the fluorochemicals market.

Rising Application as Blowing Agent

Rising application as a blowing agent is spread in the consumer electronics industry. The consumer electronics industry is the fastest growing in the world, due to its use in various applications such as ovens, ACs, and freezers fueling growth in the form blowing agents in the market growth. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, air conditioners use about 6% of all the electricity produced in the United States, at an annual cost of about $29 billion to homeowners.
