Europe Transcritical CO2 Market Size $94.20 Billion By 2032, CAGR: 15.3%

Europe Transcritical CO2 Market Size Worth USD 94.20 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 15.3%

The europe transcritical CO2 market size is expected to reach USD 94.20 Billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Europe Transcritical CO2 Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Function (Refrigeration, Heating, Air Conditioning); By Application; By Country; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The European market for transcritical CO2 systems has become increasingly dominant due to the rise in demand for natural refrigerants and energy-efficient solutions in the refrigeration sector. The primary driving force behind this market is the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and comply with environmental regulations. For instance, the EU's F-Gas Regulation 2014 seeks to phase down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) due to their high global warming potential. Transcritical CO2 systems offer a viable alternative to HFCs, as they have a negligible impact on the ozone layer and climate change. Supermarket chains and other large commercial refrigeration applications are increasingly adopting transcritical CO2 systems due to their energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and lower environmental impact compared to traditional HFC systems.

However, the growth and adoption of transcritical CO2 systems are hampered by the need for more trained personnel and technical expertise in installing and maintaining these systems, particularly in smaller countries or regions where the technology is still relatively new. This shortage of expertise leads to higher installation costs and longer payback periods for end-users, making it more challenging for them to justify investments in transcritical CO2 systems.
