"GUIDE to Natural Refrigerants in China - State of the Industry 2015” is the first-ever in-depth report on the use of natural refrigerants - carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrocarbons (HCs), ammonia (NH3), water (H2O) and air - in China. The GUIDE done in collaboration with the Chinese Association of Refrigeration (CAR) identifies market trends, business opportunities, policy drivers, and outlines suitable applications for natural refrigerants in the country’s cooling, heating and refrigeration sectors.

"GUIDE to Natural Refrigerants in China - State of the Industry 2015” is the first-ever in-depth report on the use of natural refrigerants - carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrocarbons (HCs), ammonia (NH3), water (H2O) and air - in China. The GUIDE done in collaboration with the Chinese Association of Refrigeration (CAR) identifies market trends, business opportunities, policy drivers, and outlines suitable applications for natural refrigerants in the country’s cooling, heating and refrigeration sectors.


As the only publication dedicated exclusively to analysing market trends for natural refrigerant
technology in China, the GUIDE will deliver a unique perspective to Chinese policy makers,
industry leaders and end-users.

  • Industry Survey: The largest-ever natural refrigerant survey in China collected responses from nearly 1,100 industry representatives, over half of which identified themselves as system manufacturers. With around 58% of the respondents noting they work for a large firm (over 500 employees), the survey is able to cover a high share of the market and gauge the strongest trends.
  • China’s Market Today & Tomorrow: The results of the survey show that CO2, ammonia and hydrocarbons already have an established share across different sectors. CO2 is currently seen as the most popular, with 29% of respondents already working with the refrigerant. Half of those that do not currently use natural refrigerants plan to introduce such products or services in the future. A strong shift to CO2 and hydrocarbons across different applications can be expected by 2020.
  • Market Maps & Info graphics: Three sector-specific market maps and two info graphics illustrate the dynamic market for natural refrigerants in five specific sectors. Data collected from leading manufacturers of natural refrigerant-based systems indicate that there are at least 34 CO2-based industrial refrigeration installations and 8 CO2-based supermarkets in China. Heat pumps represent another dynamic sector for natural refrigerants, with over 300 commercial CO2 heat pumps and the potential for 50,000 CO2 heat pumps to be installed in the country by 2020. A growing trend towards natural refrigerants can also be seen in the light commercial refrigeration sectors, where there are already more than 750,000 HFC-free units in the Chinese market, using both CO2 and hydrocarbons. The use of hydrocarbons has made a significant progress also in the room air conditioning (RAC) sector in recent years. With three R290 RAC production lines completed today (out of 20 planned), annual production capacity accounts for 400,000 units.
  • Case Studies: A number of case studies describe best natural refrigerant practice technologies and services oered by domestic and foreign suppliers for the Chinese market.
  • Exclusive Intreviews: The report features exclusive interviews with government agencies, leading end users, technology providers and academics, who provide first-hand snapshots of the opportunities and challenges in the Chinese market.
