Global automotive refrigerant market: Higher time-spend inside vehicles pushing demand for cabin comfort features

Long distance travel and rising traffic congestion are the crucial factors leading to increased time-spend inside vehicles. Automotive HVAC systems are standard fitments in passenger cars these days, while commercial vehicles are also increasingly using them. These systems are being adopted at a rapid pace in developing countries such as India, where overall climatic conditions are hot. Hence, countries with hot climatic conditions are expected to contribute the most to the revenue of the automotive refrigerant market during the forecast period. Growing demand for HVAC systems can be attributed to the comfort level they give, especially during long-distance travel. With the use of HVAC systems rising, the consumption of refrigerants in the automotive market is bound to go up.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive components, “In countries such as the US, most people prefer long distance trips in their personal vehicles. Such trips are mainly for pleasure and trigger high demand for advanced climate control systems. Personal vehicles also comprise crucial mediums for commuting to work in developed countries, including the US. As traffic congestion in metros is on a continuous rise to lengthen the commuting time, the need for convenience features for greater comfort and lower stress levels is on the rise. HVAC systems provide a clean and healthy environment inside vehicles. Hence, higher time-spend in vehicles is a crucial driver for the market.”
