Industrial refrigeration removes heat from large-scale processes or materials and drops the temperature to the desired level. The compressor, condenser, evaporator, and controls are the four essential components of a refrigerator. Large freezing and refrigeration plants use industrial refrigeration systems for application in various industrial applications, including food and beverage processing, cold storage, and others. The industrial refrigeration system uses cutting-edge, modern production techniques that increase product life span and lower energy costs.

According to this analysis, the Global Industrial Refrigeration Market was valued at ~US$ 15 billion in 2017, it is estimated to be ~US$ 20 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a ~7% CAGR during 2022 to 2028, with market size of ~US$ 30 billion by 2028, due to the increased usage of packed and processed food and the need to prevent spoilage are causing the high demand for Industrial Refrigeration.

Growth in the industrial refrigeration market is attributed to the increased use of natural refrigerant-based refrigeration as a result of stringent rules and regulations and the rising need for refrigerant for mass-produced cooling, frizzing, and chilling of food.

According to National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), if a natural refrigerant system costs US$ $10,000 which is more than the baseline system, and the natural refrigerant system is expected to cost $2000 less per year to operate then it will pay back in 5 years.

Furthermore, a rise in the number of refrigerated warehouses with increased capacity propels the market growth. It is majorly due to the constantly expanding population and rising demand for frozen and processed foods. According to American Frozen Food Institute, online frozen food dollar sales climbed 75% in 2020, with frozen dinners/entrees, beef, poultry, and seafood being the top online sellers.

High maintenance cost, acts as one of the major challenges for the industrial refrigeration market. According to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), RACHP (Refrigerator, Air-Conditioning, and Heat pump), lifecycle costs are segmented into 3 categories, namely, maintenance 75%, capital cost 15%, and electricity 10%.

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical, and the food and beverage sectors were operating at full capacity, raising the demand for industrial refrigerators and cold storage systems to store food products and vaccines. According to Pfizer, the COVID-19 vaccine should be kept in the refrigerator between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius for up to one month.

Key Trends by Market Segment

  • By Component: The compressor segment held the largest market share of the global industrial refrigeration market in 2021, owing to high-pressure ranges of up to 30,000 PSI, energy efficiency, and the availability of oil-free and oil-flooded varieties
  • Compressors play an important role by increasing refrigerant vapor pressure in a condenser which helps in maintaining temperature for storage of products and other preservatives
In January 2020, Emerson Electric Co., an American manufacturing company launched a new product line of compressors, for industrial and commercial refrigeration. The product range of compressors is optimized with low (Global warming potential) GWP refrigerants so that the company can meet the standards and regulations established by the Department of Energy (DOE).

In November 2020, Embraco announced the introduction of the 'NEX compressors platform' this platform will provide a powerful compressor for commercial use. NEX will be having a greater cooling capacity, smaller size, more energy-efficient, and lower noise.

By Refrigerant Type: The ammonia segment held the largest market share of the global industrial refrigeration market by refrigerant type in 2021, due to the increase in the use of natural refrigeration which is less harmful to the environment.

The high critical temperature of ammonia (NH3) enables low-pressure production. Ammonia is widely utilized in industrial refrigeration owing to its cost-effectiveness and favorable thermodynamics. Both Ozone Layer Depletion Potential (ODP) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) of ammonia are zero. A refrigeration system driven by ammonia is 10%-20% less expensive than a typical refrigeration system.

A low-cost packaged ammonia/NH3 (R717) chiller series has been introduced by M&M Carnot Refrigeration for use in industrial refrigeration applications. With capacities ranging from 30 to 400TR (106 to 1,407kW), the new PureChill series can serve a wide range of applications, including beverage production, food processing, and food storage.

According to North America Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC), in December 2021, it secured a total of US$880,000 in funding support for natural refrigerants grocery projects.

By Capacity: The 500 kW-1,000 kW capacity segment held the highest market share in 2021, due to its extensive usage in the food and beverage industry for storing and preservation of products.

500 kW-1,000 kW capacity provides the cooling capacity which is important for industries such as food and beverage as it is used for storing and processing food. This capacity is also required for dairy products for increasing the shelf life and minimize the wastage of products.

According to the U.S Department of Agriculture in 2021, the major contributors to the overall value added in the food sector are the production of beverages (16%) and the processing of meat (19%). These products need high-capacity cooling to prevent spoilage, leading to the market’s growth.

By End-User: The food & beverage segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021, owing to the rising popularity of frozen food.

The rise in the demand for packed and frozen food is one of the major factors for the growth of the food & beverage segment. In March 2022, according to indiareailing.com, India's leading Retail Intelligence portal packed frozen food has been growing at a healthy rate of 20% which has attracted various companies such as ITC and Indian companies to start manufacturing packed and frozen foods.

Refrigeration transport is a method for transporting goods using temperature-controlled trucks this method is mainly used in the food and beverage sector to transport food without getting spoiled. For instance, in September 2020, the government of India approved 27 cold chain projects with an investment of more than US$ 100 million.

The market growth for industrial refrigeration is being driven by the increased need for food products to be stored and preserved for export across international borders. According to market data provided by the Food & Drink Federation (FDF), food and beverage exports to the UK increased by nearly 10.7% in 2019, reaching up to US$ 7.4 billion.

By Geography: North America accounted for the largest market share in 2021 of the global Industrial Refrigeration market due to the presence of a large number of Industrial refrigeration companies such as Emerson Electric Co., Baltimore Aircoil Company, and Lennox International Inc.

The growth of the North American market is due to the increasing demand for industrial refrigeration in end-user industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries.

According to the American Frozen Food Institute, frozen foods are a COVID-19 powerhouse in 2020, the category accounted for US$ 65.1 billion in the retail sector. This is a 21% increase compared to 2019.
