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.
