Global Refrigerant Oil Market|Size,Share,Growth|2023-2030

Refrigerant Oil Market Size (2023 - 2030)
The refrigerant oil market size at the global level is expected to grow from USD 1.5 billion in 2022 to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecasted period.

Industry Overview
Refrigerant oils are extracted from mineral or synthetic oils. Refrigerant oils have brilliant thermal and chemical stability and are free from impurities. Refrigerant oils have an outstanding viscosity index and split stability. Refrigeration is the process of cooling a substance or an area below the atmosphere temperature.

Refrigerants play a crucial role in lubricant and lubricant technology. Refrigerant has a high influence on lifestyle, agriculture, settlement patterns, and industry. Refrigerant oil is used to grease the compressor producing cold air.

Market Drivers
Refrigerant oil has a huge demand across the food and beverages sector. The inclination for frozen and chilled products surges the compressor's demand upraising the market. The refrigerant oil has a continuous growth for high performance and long shelf life of the products with boosting the use of air-conditioners and refrigerators.

The end-user industries are demanding increasingly and consuming refrigerant lubricants foster the market during the foretold period. The demand for frozen food and pharmaceutical industries drives the refrigerant oil market. The demand in food and pharmaceutical industries, consumer appliances, and low GWP refrigerators towers the market growth. The demand for consumer electronics is increasing with higher performance for refrigerants in automotive air conditioning systems.

The adoption of refrigerators across supermarkets, restaurants, retail stores is burgeoning.

Market Restrains
The oscillations in the cost of raw materials used to produce refrigerant oil hindered the market.
