"Cold Chain Market by Type (Refrigerated storage, Transport), Temperature Type (Chilled, Frozen), Technology (Air blown, Eutectic), Application (Fruits & Vegetables, Bakery & Confectionery, Dairy, Meat, Fish & Seafood), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022"

"Cold chain market projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period"

The cold chain market is estimated to be valued at USD 189.92 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach a value of USD 271.30 billion by 2022. The primary factors driving the global success of cold chain is growth in international trade for perishable food products, expansion of food retail chains by multinationals, and government support for the infrastructural development of the cold chain industry. On the other hand, factors such as high energy and infrastructure costs are restraining the growth of the cold chain market.

"Fruits & vegetables segment projected to grow at the highest rate"

The fruits & vegetables segment is estimated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022. Frozen fruits & vegetables can be stored for a longer period of time with minimal wastage, owing to which this segment is projected to grow at the highest rate. Cold chain also plays a key role in the storage and transport of meat, fish & seafood as they require refrigeration immediately after slaughter, during processing, and during packaging.

"Chilled segment projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period"

The chilled segment, on the basis of temperature type, is estimated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. The chilled segment is expected to grow due to the wide usage of chilled temperatures for food preservation to extend the shelf life from a few days to a few weeks. Chilling provides effective short-term preservation of food products by retarding numerous microbial, physical, chemical, and bio-chemical reactions associated with food spoilage and deterioration.

"India: The future of the cold chain industry"

The cold chain market is segmented on the basis of region into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The market is growing in this region due to the increasing disposable income of the people, the changing consumption patterns, and increasing expansions and acquisitions of key players such as Americold Logistics (U.S.), Preferred Freezer Services (U.S.), and Nichirei Logistics Group Inc. (Japan) in South Africa and Thailand for profitable returns.

The Indian government is encouraging the setting up of cold storage facilities by providing subsidized power tariffs, public-private partnerships, and awareness campaigns to ensure year-round availability of perishable food products and reasonable prices to consumers with equitable distribution throughout the country. The increasing working class population in India is one of the major drivers for growth in the food & beverages market, which in turn creates an opportunity for cold chain service providers.

Break-up of primaries:

  • By Company Type: Tier 1 - 45 %, Tier 2 - 25%, and Tier 3 - 30%
  • By Designation: C level - 55%, Director level - 30%, and Others - 15%
  • By Region: North America - 45%, Europe - 25%, Asia-Pacific - 18%, and RoW - 12%

The global market for cold chain is dominated by large players such as Americold Logistics (U.S.), Preferred Freezer Services (U.S.), Burris Logistics (U.S.), Lineage Logistics Holding LLC (U.S.), and Nichirei Logistics Group Inc., Ltd. (Japan). Other players include AGRO Merchants Group, LLC (U.S.), Cloverleaf Cold Storage (U.S.), Kloosterboer Group (Netherlands), Swire Cold Storage Ltd (Australia), and Interstate Cold Storage Inc. (U.S.).

The cold chain market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0%, in terms of value, from 2017 to reach a projected value of USD 271.30 Billion by 2022. The growing consumer demand for perishable foods, growth of international trade due to trade liberalization, and expansion of food retail chains by multinationals are the factors driving the cold chain market. Government support for infrastructure development drives the cold chain industry.

The cold chain market has been segmented by type into refrigerated storage and refrigerated transport. Refrigerated storage capacities are growing in the Asia-Pacific countries due to the increased need to reduce the loss of perishable foods. In North America and Europe, in the refrigerated transport industry is booming, mainly due to the advancement of technology in refrigerated trucks, vans, trailers, and maritime reefer containers. The refrigerated transport market is further segmented into subtypes which include air-blown evaporators and eutectic devices.

Based on temperature type, the frozen segment is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2017. The global demand for frozen food products is higher than chilled food products. The chilled segment is expected to grow due to the wide usage of chilled temperatures for food preservation to extend the shelf life from a few days to a few weeks.

The cold chain market has been segmented on the basis of application into fruits & vegetables, bakery & confectionery, dairy & frozen desserts, fish, meat, & seafood, and others which include sauces, condiments, salad dressings, and dips. Dairy & frozen desserts are also witnessing high demand due to economic growth and rapid urbanization, along with sophisticated marketing channels which have led to significant changes in dietary patterns. Frozen fruits & vegetables are often available in easy-to-open re-sealable packaging, allowing for longer storage and portion control without wastage.

Cold Chain Market

The European region is estimated to account for the largest share, in terms of value, in the global cold chain market, in 2017. There is a steady increase in demand, particularly for cold chain due to a continuous increase in domestic consumption of high quality of perishable commodities. Asia-Pacific region indicates significant growth potential for the cold chain industry due to increasing awareness about the prevention of food wastage before consumption, growth of the organized retail sector, rising consumer demand for perishable foods, and government support & initiatives in this sector.

High energy & infrastructure costs are the growing concerns for cold chain service providers and environmental concerns regarding greenhouse gas emissions restrains the total market for cold chain.

The leading players that dominated the cold chain market include Americold Logistics (U.S.), Preferred Freezer Services (U.S.), Burris Logistics (U.S.), Lineage Logistics Holding LLC (U.S.), and Nichirei Logistics Group Inc. (Japan).

The key players have been exploring the market in new regions by adopting mergers & acquisitions, expansions, investments, new service launches, agreements, collaborations, and joint ventures as their preferred strategies. Key players have been exploring new geographies through expansions and acquisitions across the globe to avail competitive advantage through combined synergies.
