Octofluoropropane Market Analysis and Size

Growing demand for octofluoropropane from the electrical industry generates a huge demand for electronics specialty gases, which will act as a dynamic factor for the growth of the octofluoropropane market. This is a nonflammable synthetic material with major applications in medicine and semiconductor production. It is also a tremendously potent greenhouse gas. Octafluoropropane can be formed either by the fowler process using cobalt fluoride or by electrochemical fluorination.

Global Octofluoropropane Market Dynamics


  • Highly used in refrigeration systems

Octafluoropropane acts as a coolant in refrigerants due to its compressibility. Octafluoropropane can be compressed at high pressure into a liquid. This compressed octafluoropropane is controlled by a refrigeration system allowing it to expand into a gas. This process occurs when heat is surrounded by the gas, which is absorbed. Refrigeration systems are highly used in commercial and industrial refrigeration purposes to maintain the temperature level. The major end-user industry of refrigeration systems is the food sector. Refrigeration systems are utilized to preserve the freshness of food products in stores, domestic houses, and others where food is handled. Thus, the growing demand for refrigerants increases the demand for octafluoropropane in the market.

  • Rising demand of octafluoropropane in the automotive and electronics industry

The increasing fabrication of semiconductor constituents in vehicles is anticipated to proliferate. The rising integration of electronic controls which is embedded in the modern generation of automobiles has increased the demand for octofluoropropane in the market. Furthermore, the increasing use of octofluoropropane in specialty applications, such as an etching mechanism in the electronic industry, is anticipated to boost the growth rate of the octafluoropropane market,


  • Growing demand of octofluoropropane in medical sector

In medical sector, octofluoropropane is used in the manufacture of medicines. Octafluoropropane may comprise microbubble contrast agents in the form of gas cores which are used in contrast-enhanced ultrasound. Octafluoropropane microbubbles can easily reflect sound waves and enhance the ultrasound signal backscatter in the medical sector. It is also used in eye surgery, for instance, in pars plana vitrectomy procedures, where retina tear or hole is repaired. This gas offers a long-term tamponade. Thus, the rising demand of octofluoropropane in the medical sector will create lucrative opportunities for market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, rising modernization and ongoing research and development activities will further generate new and ample opportunities for the growth of the octofluoropropane market during forecast period of 2022-2029.
