Refrigeration Oil Market

Market Insight

Refrigeration oil is used to lubricate all moving parts in the refrigerant compressor and keep the refrigeration unit running smoothly. Additionally, refrigeration oil helps in environmental issues such as the disposal of waste oil and ozone depletion that contributes to global warming. Refrigeration oil reduces the friction, wear and tear of metal parts on the compressor and prolongs the life of the system. This oil has several benefits including high dielectric strength, low pour point, low contamination, excellent thermal and chemical stability, and low viscosity. Refrigerant oil plays an important role in the area of lubricants and lubrication technology. Two types of lubricant are used in a refrigeration system which includes synthetic and mineral oil. The exact formulation of oil for a particular compressor depends on the power and size requirements of the compressor.

The growing demand for refrigeration oil from consumer appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, and freezers has majorly driven the growth of refrigeration oil market. The rising disposable income and an increase in the number of single and two-person households are increasing the demand for consumer appliances, that in turn drives the growth of refrigeration oil market. Additionally, growth in consumption of packaged food products and storage requirement for drugs escalates the demand for refrigerators, air conditioners, and automobile HVAC systems. Moreover, increasing preference of low global warming potential refrigerants across the globe and high demand of refrigeration oil from food and pharmaceutical industries to increase the shelf life of the products are some factors positively prompting the market growth. On the other hand, the regulatory bodies such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s and American Industrial Hygiene Association limits the use of refrigerants due to its toxicity and growing environmental protection acts to control the emission of greenhouse gases are likely to hamper the growth of the global refrigeration oil market. Going further, new product development by leading players is anticipated to create fruitful opportunities for the refrigeration oil market during the forecast period.


Among the regions, Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest region for the refrigeration oil market. It is also projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growing demand for consumer appliances, automobiles, air conditioner and refrigerator from China and India is a major factor in boosting the demand of refrigeration oil market in the Asia Pacific. Moreover, the changing lifestyle and growing disposable income level led to high demand for consumer appliances and automotive, this, in turn, drives the demand for market growth. North America region is the fastest growing region in the refrigeration oil market due to high demand for the product in automotive AC system.
