Cold Storage Market Growth & Trends

The global cold storage market size is expected to reach USD 485.32 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 17.2%, according to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. The retail sector in emerging economies, such as India and China, is getting more organized and this trend is expected to augment the demand for cold storage over the forecast period. Government policies to deregulate the entry of foreign companies have increased the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the retail sectors of such regions.

Organized retail stores use better refrigeration and improved storage technology than traditional stores. Thus, consumers are increasingly purchasing frozen foods from these retail stores. With the increased demand for chilled and frozen foods and the rapidly expanding organized retail sector, the demand for cold storage solutions is expected to grow over the projected period. Organized retail supports different outlet formats depending on spending power and proximity to major residential and consumption clusters.

The offline mode of organized retailing is categorized into convenience stores, supermarkets, and hypermarkets based on the product range and surface coverage. On the other hand, the lack of power hook-ups for reefer trailers at transportation hubs and ports coupled with the lack of reliable power supply for cold warehouses further increases the operating costs.

However, this also offers opportunities for companies to develop unique solutions or leverage alternative energy sources that can overcome these issues in emerging markets. Furthermore, new transportation means, such as versatile refrigerated containers, are being developed to overcome the lack of adequate transportation facilities. These solutions can provide access to international markets and offer opportunities for farmers and small-scale businesses in these regions.
