Rising Need for Food and Beverage Preservation to Boost Refrigeration Oil Market 

The growing demand for coolers, freezers, air conditioners and car hVac system is propelling the growing intake of packaged food and the preservation and use of vaccines and medicinal products. The industry is being fuelled by increasing demands from the food and drug industries for refrigeration oil to increase its shelf life. Furthermore, increased demand for consumer equipment and increasing preference for GWP coolants are key factors which should drive the refrigeration oil market. Furthermore, technological progress and changing lifestyles of people globally influence the growth of the refrigeration oil market significantly. 

Use of Nanoparticles to Emerge as Key Market Trend 

Lubricant and additive chemicals that improve heat transfer and compressor efficiency have been given more attention over the last few years. Many companies worldwide incorporate nanoparticles in refrigerant oil to improve the properties of heat transfer. Current trends also include the use of coolants with a powerful affinity to metal, which have an activated polar molecule. These additives form a thin layer of the compressor's metal surfaces. This layer lubricates the moving components of the compressor, thus improving the heat transfer and increasing system efficiency.

Emission of Fluorocarbons to Restrain Growth 

The main restrictions on the growth of the refrigeration oil market are strict regulations limiting the use of fluorocarbon refrigerants. Government agencies have created stringent regulations to restrict the use of fluorocarbon coolants because of an increase in Green House gas emissions, with oil control complexities likely to limit the world refrigeration oil market. The shift to frozen and cooled products such as poultry, meat and milk, however, is forecast to escalate compressor demand, thus driving the refrigeration oil market during the forecast period.
