The application of R32 refrigerant in household air-conditioning shows a prosperous scene, with a market share of close to 60%, and the status of the largest refrigerant in the household air-conditioning industry is veritable. However, the Kigali amendment has come into effect, and the transitional status of R32 refrigerant is beyond doubt. As HFCs refrigerants begin to undergo quota production, the fate of R32 refrigerants will face challenges.
In 2019, the market share of R32 air conditioners has increased significantly. According to industry online data, the market share of R32 air conditioners in 2019 was 39.2%, R410A air conditioners were 36.5%, and R22 air conditioners were 24.3%; in 2020, the market share of R32 air conditioners rose rapidly to 54.2%, R410A air conditioners were 36.0%, and R22 air conditioners were 36.0%. 9.5%.
It can be seen from the data that in 2020, the market share of R410A air conditioners will slightly decline, and the share of R22 air conditioners will be given to R32 refrigerant, which has become the most used refrigerant in the household air conditioner industry. From a single brand point of view, the share of R32 air conditioners may be higher. According to an industry source, Gree R32 air conditioners may account for 90% in 2020, and Midea R32 air conditioners are estimated to account for 70%.
Talking about the reasons for the rapid increase in the market share of R32 air-conditioning, a person in charge of a refrigerant company in Shandong said that on the one hand, R32 refrigerant is more expensive than R410A refrigerant and R22 refrigerant due to overcapacity; on the other hand, R32 air-conditioning system The cost is lower. He bluntly said: "At present, the only factor affecting the promotion of R32 air conditioners is flammability. The safety category of R32 refrigerant is A2L. If R32 refrigerant does not have such problems, the market share may be higher."
However, the outlook of R32 refrigerant in the household air-conditioning industry in 2020 has a huge contrast with the real profits of the production enterprises. Beginning in 2019, as R32 refrigerant is about to enter the year of rapid quota change, in order to compete for the quota, in addition to fluorine refrigerant companies, companies in other industries have joined the production of R32 refrigerant, resulting in a serious overcapacity of R32 refrigerant, and the price has hit Cost line. In 2020, superimposed on the impact of the new crown epidemic and sluggish downstream demand, the price of R32 refrigerant continues to drop, and companies are losing money.
