Trends Analysis

Consumption and Production of Ozone Depleting Substances in Developing Countries

To access data, roll over map and select a country or use the country index tool at far righthand side of the map.

This improved version of the Trends Analysis is based on an interactive Flash module using a map-based interface, and it provides more precise year-wise data to the user. Based on official data reported by Governments to the Ozone Secretariat under Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol, the module presents country-wise analyses for the main substances controlled under the Protocol, i.e. chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs), halons, methyl bromide, carbon tetrachloride (CTC), methyl chloroform (MCF). The graphics can be exported by the user for use in publications and presentations.

The graphs include some or all of the following lines or data points:

  • Consumption level: This appears for all countries.
  • Production level: This appears only if the country is or was a producer of the specific ODS.
  • Montreal Protocol reduction targets: The respective freeze or reduction target dates are included on the graph for reference.

Note that for HCFCs, since Article 5 countries have not yet established their baselines, no freeze level can be shown. Only their consumption and production trends are indicated. However, underneath the graphic is a chart that reminds the user of the percentage phase out schedule for HCFCs according to the Montreal Protocol targets. In the future, the freeze level and subsequent reduction levels will be added once the baseline data are officially reported by the country.
