1. GLOBAL REFRIEGRATION OIL MARKET OVERVIEW


1.1. SCOPE AND DESCRIPTION
With the increase of the tech savvy customers globally, there is a prerequisite condition for
manufacturers to produce products that are environmental friendly, efficient enough, have
longer life with less maintenance. Refrigerant oils are the oils which are used in Refrigerant
systems for obtaining longer life and high performance from these systems. Refrigerants oils act
as lubricants that make a refrigerant system more efficient.
Global Refrigerant Oil market has been segmented into different segments such as by oil type,
by refrigerant type, by end product type and by geography. The market is segmented by oil type
into mineral and synthetic oils. And depending on the refrigerant types, these are classified into
CFC, HCFC, HFC and Others. Each of these segments is analyzed in depth to provide a
comprehensive analysis on the global refrigerant oil market.
The refrigerant oil which is used depends on the end product. The report provides detailed
breakdown of various types of end products and the oil used. The overall market is also
presented from the perspective of different geographic regions and the key countries in each
region. Competitive landscape for industry and market players are profiled with attributes of
company overview, financial overview, business strategies, product portfolio and recent
developments. Market shares of the key players for 2014 are provided. Few of the companies
that are profiled in this report include CITGO Petroleum Corporation, BASF, Chevron, Shell
and Sonneborn and others.

2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Refrigerant oil market is an important growing market with the advancement in technology and
change in lifestyles. . With the increase in the usage of air conditioners and refrigerators, there
will be a continuous growth in the refrigerant oil market for the high performance and longer life
of these systems as these oils add long life to the refrigerant systems. The particular refrigerant
oil that is used for a specific refrigerant system depends on the refrigerant type used in the
system and the most common refrigerants used are CFC and HCFC.
Refrigerant systems are lubricated by mineral and synthetic oils like PAG, PAO, and others.
Global Synthetic oil market is around 85% and rest of the market is shared by the mineral oil,
thus many refrigerant oil manufacturing companies are producing more synthetic oil based
products than mineral oil products. The refrigerant systems market is estimated to grow at a
CAGR of 5.2% with an estimated market reach of 1.6 million metric tons by 2018 globally and
likewise the refrigerant oil market is estimated to grow simultaneously.
Refrigerant oil companies has products for OEM and end consumers for usage in refrigerant
systems like residential and commercial Air Conditioners, residential and commercial
refrigerators, medical freezers, etc. Some of the companies in this market are Dupont, Summit
Industrial products, Shell Global, etc.
