Published Date : Jun 2021 | No. of Pages : 150+ Pages | Category : Construction and Manufacturing

The industrial refrigeration market was valued at $19.4 billion in 2020, and is predicted to reach $29.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2028. Industrial refrigeration refers to the process of cooling using refrigeration and cooling systems to remove the heat from a low-temperature medium and transferring it to a high-temperature medium. Industrial refrigeration systems are deployed at large freezing and refrigeration plants for use in various industrial applications such as food & beverage processing, cold storage, and others.

Drivers, restraints, and opportunities-

Rise in consumption of FMCG products, upgrading cold storage infrastructure across emerging economies, and increase in adoption of energy-efficient & eco-friendly refrigerants fuel the growth of the global industrial refrigeration market. On the other hand, high energy costs for operation and maintenance of industrial refrigeration units and stringent regulations related to usage of refrigerants impede the growth to a certain extent. However, use of IoT-enabled refrigeration solutions for equipment monitoring is anticipated to create multiple opportunities in the future.

The industrial refrigeration market includes revenue generated by sales of industrial refrigerators and its components used in fresh fruits & vegetables; meat, poultry, & fish; dairy & ice cream; beverages; chemicals; pharmaceuticals and others industries.

Owing to growth in population and rise in trend of consumption of packaged food, the demand for industrial refrigeration has increased in the food & beverage industry. In addition, upgrading of old cold storages in developing countries is driving the industrial refrigeration market. Moreover, adoption of eco-friendly and energy efficient refrigerants is a major factor driving the industrial refrigeration market. However, high maintenance costs and high operating costs act as restraints to the industrial refrigeration market. In addition, strict regulation on using the refrigerants is another factor affecting the industrial refrigerant market.

Covid-19 scenario-

During the first phase of the lockdown, the construction and transportation activities were hampered to a significant extent. This, in turn, led to a sharp decline in manufacturing of refrigeration systems, which impacted the global industrial refrigeration market negatively.

However, government bodies across the world are easing up on the current dictums and the market is anticipated to retrieve soon. 

The industrial refrigerators segment to maintain the lion's share by 2028

Based on offering, the industrial refrigerators segment contributed to more than half of the global industrial refrigeration market revenue in 2020, and is anticipated to retain its dominance by the end of 2028, owing to its large scale installation in manufacturing plants. The components segment, on the other hand, would register the fastest CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period, due to the need for regular maintenance and replacement of components in the refrigeration systems.

The HFCs segment to retain its dominance during the forecast period-

Based on refrigerant, the HFCs segment held the major share in 2020, generating more than half of the global industrial refrigeration market. Its rapid usage in refrigeration systems fuels the segment growth. Simultaneously, the carbon dioxide segment would grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2028. This is attributed to its increasing demand due to its non-toxic and non-flammable properties.

Asia-Pacific, followed by North America, to dominate in terms of revenue-

Based on geography, Asia-Pacific, followed by North America, garnered the highest share in 2020, holding more than two-fifths of the global industrial refrigeration market, owing to rise in demand for FMCG and ready to eat food products and extensive consumption of pharmaceutical drugs. Simultaneously, the market across LAMEA would showcase the fastest CAGR of 6.5% throughout the forecast period, due to rapid urbanization and industrialization in the countries in this province.
