Future Market Insights (FMI) presents a new study that examines how the growth of this global market will unfold over the period of next 10 years. The study forecasts a steady growth outlook for commercial refrigeration equipment market during 2019 – 2029. While matured markets in developed regions are demanding technologically advanced and energy-efficient equipment, the trend will further influence markets in developing regions as well.
Key Growth Influencers - Commercial Refrigeration Equipment Market
Increasing Capital Expenditure on Refrigeration Systems
Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of retail stores across the globe. Major players in the retail sector are expanding their footprints in emerging markets of Asia Pacific, especially in India and China to capitalize on the growing consumer spending power in these countries. The retail market in developing regions is substantially fragmented. However, favourable government policies regarding investment in the retail sector in developing regions such as India and China has led to the significant growth of the organized retail sector. Additionally, foodservice providers are increasing their capital expenditure on refrigeration systems to cater to strong consumer demand for frozen food and chilled products. Also, the number of licensed and franchised stores of limited service restaurants such as McDonald’s and Subway is growing, leading to an increase in the demand for refrigeration systems. Aforementioned factors are expected to drive the overall demand for commercial refrigeration across the globe.
Rapid Growth of Food & Beverages Industry
Increase in the food and beverages production, along with the expansion of cold chain capacities to ensure efficient storage and minimize wastage of food is expected to boost the demand for commercial refrigeration system across the globe over the forecast period. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in 2015, food and beverages worth US$ 750 Bn was wasted across the globe. Countries across the globe are strengthening their cold supply chain infrastructure to minimize waste of food and beverages.
Changing Consumer Preference from FSR to QSR
The rapid changing lifestyle and shift towards westernization has shifted the consumer preference from FSR (Full Service Restaurants) to QSR (Quick Service Restaurants). There has been a significant increase in the number of quick service restaurants in recent years. The consumer spending on QSR has increased by 4.1% between FY2005 and FY2015, reaching a total market value of about US$ 275 billion in FY2015. Thus, international companies and local companies are substantially investing in quick service restaurant equipment, such as display cases and vending machines. Additionally, the dining out culture is gaining prominence worldwide owing to the rapidly changing lifestyle. Consumers’ preference for dining out is increasing at a rate of 7% worldwide. It is more prominent in developing regions of Asia Pacific such as India and ASEAN, where it is expected to grow at a rate of over 11% over the forecast period. Hence, this shift of culture is expected to drive the demand for commercial refrigeration equipment.
Commercial Refrigeration Equipment Market Structure Analysis
- The global commercial refrigeration equipment market represents a fairly fragmented competition landscape, where a majority of key players maintain their strategic focus on the development of solid distribution partnerships and joint ventures, targeting a firmer global footprint.
- Prominent manufacturers of commercial refrigeration equipment are currently prioritizing R&D and new product launches to resonate with the growing consumption of refrigeration equipment in North America, Europe, and China.
- To have a stronger foothold in target markets, acquisition of local players and collaboration with retailers is also identified to remain as one of the key developmental strategies adopted by manufacturers of commercial refrigeration equipment.
- Key players operating in the global commercial refrigeration systems market follow a hybrid model or multi-channel route to market their products. Hybrid model involves the adoption of channel sales and direct selling to effectively reach customers. For instance, United Technologies subsidiary Carrier markets its products through both direct selling routes and conventional channel. Whirlpool markets its products through direct selling routes (online sales) and conventional channel.
Beverage Refrigerators and Dispensers Gathering Traction
Freezers & refrigerators would remain top selling category in the global market, making up nearly a third of the global market revenues. Transportation refrigerators and display cases also continue to see steady sales growth. The beverage sector is emerging as the key growth lever for commercial refrigeration equipment market. Buoyed by robust growth in the functional, energy, and grab and go drinks categories, beverage refrigerators and dispensers will continue to sell strong throughout the forecast period. Display cases and glass door merchandizers collectively account for over a fourth of market value.
Opportunities Abound in APAC and MEA
The U.S. and EU5 will be in the vanguard of the commercial refrigeration equipment market, attributing to the strong presence of stakeholders that export their products to domestic and international end users. On the other hand, the expanding F&B industry and growing preference for quick service restaurants (QSRs) will drive demand in Asia Pacific (APAC). While increase in per capita beverage consumption will push sales in APAC and Middle East & Africa (MEA), developed markets would lag in terms of growth rate.
Manufacturers Must Speed-up their Move Towards Low-GWP Alternatives
While market players remained focused on capitalizing on rapidly expanding foodservice industry and retail outlets, the evolving regulatory framework will continue influence the development strategies. With the new EPA 680 update on allowable refrigerant leak rate thresholds for triggering of leak repair requirements, manufacturers are focusing on distributed refrigeration systems that can minimize the leak potential. With refrigerant regulations in place and gaining prominence in various countries requiring the phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), potent greenhouse gases (GHGs), manufactures are in dire straits to shift from HFCs to climate-friendly, low-GWP (global warming potential), or zero-ODP (ozone-depleting potential) alternatives. Besides, companies are leveraging digital solutions to improve engagement and remote management of their products.
Freezers & refrigerators remain top-selling category
Demand for beverage dispensers growing significantly
Use in foodservices to gain momentum
Application in F&B retail to pick pace
How Growth will Unfold
Market gains will be driven by foodservice and F&B retail expansion. As the dining out culture continues to gain prominence, commercial refrigeration equipment sales are set to remain high across foodservice industry. Sales will also ramp up in F&B retail chains, and currently represent nearly 29% share in market. However, as supermarkets and hypermarkets are emerging as energy-intensive businesses, market players could possibly face tough times to meet the new regulatory requirements. A focus on energy-efficient technologies with minimal environmental impact will thus remain vital for stakeholders in the long run.
