Published 06 November 2015
The global refrigerated display cases and chilled rooms market is booming with opportunities due to growth in the cold chain and food retail industry in the entire world. Refrigerated display cases, commonly called RDCs are specially designed refrigerators or freezers for keeping and displaying temperature sensitive food items that have to be chilled or stocked frozen. These refrigerators are majorly used in catering businesses, supermarkets/hypermarkets, hotels/restaurants, grocery stores, bakery shops, and non-conventional outlets such as local grocers, gas stations, and kiosks. In biomedical industry, RDCs are used to store drugs and specimens.
Similarly, a chilled room is a specially designed chamber that is refrigerated for stocking up perishable food products and vegetables. These storage facilities are generally utilized across dairy and ice cream industry, food supply chain industry, hotel industry, and meat and sea food industry. Chilled rooms are also required in hospitals, research laboratories, horticulture and floriculture industry, and pharmaceutical industry.
In 2013, the global RDCs and chilled rooms industry were jointly worth US$21.9 billion, in terms of revenue. The industry is expected to increase at a 10.5% CAGR during the period 2014 to 2020. The cumulative unit shipment for the RDCs and chilled rooms was 5.7 million units in 2013. It is likely to arrive at 12.0 million units by the end of the forecast period.
The rise in cold chain, development in food retail industry, strict food safety and quality regulations, and increase in demand for frozen food along with technical advancement such as reducing the energy consumed by RDCs and chilled rooms, are the major factors promoting the RDCs and chilled rooms industry across the globe. However, the high initial purchasing price and advancing online retail industry are likely to limit the market growth in future.
