In contrast, the automotive AC system segment shows the highest growth rate in the global industry. The increasing number of technological developments, sustainable AC systems, and rising R&D investments lead to the segment demand.


The surging demand for frozen food and the rapid growth of the pharmaceutical industries is one of the primary factors fueling the industry demand. The growing population globally and changing food habits of the population are creating high growth of packaged and ready-to-eat food products. The refrigeration oils are gaining massive traction in refrigerator & freezer applications to preserve products at low temperatures and maintain their quality.


Moreover, the pharmaceutical industry also fosters industry demand as they also need low-temperature conditions for the storage and transportation of drugs. For instance, according to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian pharmaceutical sector ranked 3rd in volume and 13th in terms of value globally and recorded USD 42 billion in 2021. Also, in August 2021, the pharmaceutical industry in India rose by 17.7% annually, up from 13.7% in July 2020.


The rising development of the pharmaceutical sector, majorly in emerging economies of Asia Pacific like India and China, stimulates industry growth. Hence, these factors are anticipated to bolster the demand for refrigeration oil, thus augmenting the industry's growth.


Industry participants include BASF SE, Petroliam Nasional Berhad, ExxonMobil Corporation, Eneos Holdings Inc., China Petrochemical Corporation, Total Energies SE, FUCHS PetrolubSE, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., Royal Dutch Shell Plc., and Johnson Controls are some of the key players operating in the global industry. For instance, in October 2021, Anderol B.V.- a worldwide producer and marketer of synthetic specialty lubricants- introduced its new compressor oil.
