The key players include The Chemours Company, Honeywell International Inc, Gujarat Fluorochemicals Limited, DuPont, and Solvay SA, among others.
The global chlorofluorocarbon market is being aided by the growth of the refrigerants market, which attained a value of USD 22.79 billion in 2020. The global refrigerants market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% in the forecast period of 2022-2027.
A chlorofluorocarbon is an organic compound consisting mainly of three elements: carbon, chlorine, and fluorine, which are produced as a derivative of ethane. Dichlorofluoromethane is the most typical representative of this organic compound. Chlorofluorocarbons are non-toxic, non-flammable, and do not react with other compounds. However, the production of such compounds has been slowly phased out under the Montreal Protocol, which is made to stop producing substances that contribute to the depletion of the ozone layer.

The main application of this organic compound lies in a variety of industrial, commercial, and household applications. Along with being non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-reactive, these substances also have stable thermodynamic properties, which makes them ideal for various applications, including coolants for commercial and home refrigeration set up, aerosol propellants, electronic cleaning solvents, and blowing agents. Out of these, their wide application lies as refrigerants, propellants, and as solvents. However, lately, it was discovered that this compound causes harm to the environment, especially chlorine, contributing mainly to the depletion of the ozone layer. Hence, these compounds are being replaced with products such as hydrofluorocarbons.
The chlorofluorocarbon industry is being propelled forward by rising global demand. The demand for chlorofluorocarbon is high in India, Latin America, and the Middle East, which is why the market is growing in these nations. This is due to the booming economy, quickly expanding manufacturing bases, and a lack of rules and regulations prohibiting its usage. Chlorofluorocarbon is produced in large quantities in India and China, and the high demand for the molecule is likely to persist over the forecast period.

In the 20th century, DuPont developed many polymers such as vespel, neoprene, nylon, corian, teflon, mylar, kapton, kevlar, zemdrain, M5 fibre, nomex, tyvek, sorona, corfam and lycra. In addition, DuPont developed freon (chlorofluorocarbons) for the refrigerant industry and later other refrigerants. It has also developed synthetic pigments and paints, including ChromaFlair. In 2014, DuPont was the world's fourth largest chemical company based on market capitalization and eighth-largest revenue. On August 31, 2017, it merged with the Dow Chemical Company to create DowDuPont.
