Industry Insights, Trends, Size, Share, Outlook, 2018-2026
Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) is a manmade compound used as
refrigerants, aerosols, and in foam manufacture. They are chemically similar to
chlorofluorocarbons and exhibit similar properties, having low boiling points
which make them ideal in the foam blowing and refrigeration industry. Unlike
CFCs, HCFCs are volatile and have a lower global warming potential. They are
classified as VOCs and rise up to stratosphere damaging the ozone layer, though
are less potent than CFC’s. HCFC’s have replaced CFC’s in many applications
and are in the process of being phased out themselves. They are used in
commercial refrigeration, foam blowing and residential air conditioning, and are
gradually being replaced by hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs).
Under the Montreal Protocol complete phase out of HCFCs is slated for 2020 in
developed countries and 2030 in emerging economies. Developed countries
have already adopted or are in the process of adopting natural or less harmful
artificial alternatives on a large scale, resulting in the phasing out of HCFC
market in North America and Europe.

HCFC-22 was the most commonly used refrigerant, though it is being phased
out in favor of HFC-134b. Similarly, in the foam industry, HCFC 141b and
HCFC 142b are being replaced by HFC-245fa. HCFC 123 are used in
centrifugal chillers and fire extinguishers, HCFC 124 in air conditioning
equipment. HCFC 225ca and HCFC 225cb are used as aerosol solvents.
Foam blowing market is also undergoing a shift to HFO, though large scale use
is expected to take many years due to lack of large-scale manufacturing
Major players in the blowing agents market include Honeywell International
Inc, Exxon Mobil Corporation, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, Harp
International Ltd, Daikin Industries, Ltd., Arkema S.A., Sinochem Group,
Solvay S.A., and ZEON Corporation. Furthermore, major players in the
refrigeration market are The Danfoss Group, Emerson Electric Co., GEA Group
AG, Johnson Controls Inc. and United Technologies Corporation.
