The increasing population, especially of working women, also drives the demand for chilled processed food, which is convenient as well as healthy. In this case, the standard of food is maintained by storing it at low temperature; however, the high cost of cooling systems is a major restraint to the market. This market is expected to grow rapidly in the Asia-Pacific region, due to urbanization and increasing population, which act as opportunities.
