The refrigerated transport market is estimated at 2.87 Billion Tons in 2016 and projected to reach 3.25 Billion Tons by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 2.49% from 2017 to 2022. The market is driven owing to factors such as high fuel costs, climatic changes influencing transport infrastructure, lack of transport infrastructure support in developing economies, and skilled resources in developed economies. The refrigerated road transport market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.67%, in terms of value, from 2017 to reach a projected value of USD 17.82 Billion by 2022.

The objectives of the study are as follows:

  • To define, segment, and measure the refrigerated transport market with respect to its product type, mode of transportation, technology, and region
  • To provide detailed information about the major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges)
  • To analyze the complete value chain and supply chain of frozen & chilled food products, that are transported under temperature-controlled conditions
  • To analyze the opportunities in the market for stakeholders and provide details of the competitive landscape for market leaders
  • To profile the key players and comprehensively analyze their core competencies
  • To analyze the competitive developments new product developments, mergers & acquisitions, investments, expansions, agreements, joint ventures, and technologies—in the refrigerated transport market
  • To profile the key refrigerated road transport companies with respect to the business overview, recent financials, segmental revenue mix, geographic presence, and information about the products & services
  • The market has been covered by mapping just the refrigerated road transportation (LCV, MHCV, and HCV). The volume and value figures have not been covered in the rail, marine, and air transport markets.

The years considered for the study are as follows:

  • Base year – 2016
  • Estimated year – 2017
  • Projected year – 2022
  • Forecast period – 2017 to 2022

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the refrigerator transport market begins with capturing data on key players, their revenues through secondary sources such as International Frozen Food Association, American Frozen Food Institute, British Frozen Food Federation, USDA, and Global Cold Chain Alliance. The overall market size was arrived after validating with primary interviews and secondary research which includes, publications and statistics. Both “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches were used to estimate and validate the total size of the market. These approaches were also used extensively to estimate the market size of various dependent submarkets in the overall refrigerated transport market, which are then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments.

The refrigerated transport market is projected to reach 3.25 Billion Tons by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 2.49% from 2017 to 2022. Refrigerated transport is one of the essential links in the cold chain system for distribution of perishable commodities such as milk, bakery & confectionery, dairy products, beverages, fresh fruits & vegetables, ice cream, frozen dairy products, processed meat, fish & seafood, and frozen dairy products. The growth of the refrigerated transport market is attributed to the increasing demand for temperature-controlled food across the globe, increasing globalization, and technological advancements in refrigerated transport systems and equipment. The global refrigerated road transport market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.67%, in terms of value, from 2016 to reach a projected value of USD 17.82 Billion by 2022.

Food products such as fresh fruits & vegetables, beverages, bakery & confectioneries, and dairy products can be chilled to temperatures ranging from 0°C to 5°C (32° F to 41° F) to help slow down or prevent deterioration. Chilled foods can be on the shelf within 24 hours of production and producers need to ensure they are delivered in a perfect condition, which is a key for food safety. Refrigerated transportation of frozen food products such as frozen dairy products, ice-cream, processed meat, fish and seafood, requires a temperature range of -10°C to -25°C. The extremely low temperatures of frozen food products inhibit the growth of microorganisms on it, ensuring the quality and freshness of food.

The refrigerated road transport market consists of LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) which ranges from 3 tons to 7 tons; MHCV (Medium & Heavy Commercial Vehicle) which ranges from 7 tons to 16 tons and finally the HCV (Heavy Commercial Vehicle) which is above 16 tons. Refrigerated vans are used for intra-city distribution of frozen or chilled products, whereas trucks and trailers are used for long haulage of perishable commodities which require different temperatures.

Apart from road transportation, there are three other types of transportation such as marine transport, rail transport, and transportation by air. Refrigerated transport in marine refers to dedicated refrigerated cargo ships or refrigerated containers with mechanism to maintain required temperature levels during the transit. Rail freight transportation utilizes freight wagons for transportation of goods. The majority of the freight constitute dry commodities such as chemicals, coal, steel, and construction materials among others. Rail refrigerated transport is fast gaining traction among those looking for additional capacity and one of the cost-effective transportation option. Due to time consideration, lack of infrastructure and some geographical obstacles, air transport is becoming the mode of choice for long-distance transport of perishable goods, pharma equipment, meat, and other processed food.
