The global cold chain equipment market size is expected to reach USD 33.9 billion by the year 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The cold chain equipment refers to refrigeration equipment that provides efficient storage and distribution facilities due to its temperature-controlled composition, to preserve the quality and maintain the shelf-life of frozen food, drinks, vaccines, medicines, and chemical products till they reach end-users. In addition, due to the strict government regulations for the safety of food and pharmaceuticals during storage, consumers are shifting their food habits and are becoming more inclined towards food categories such as meat, seafood, fruits, and ready-to-eat food products. Moreover, through cold chain equipment such as cold rooms, cold boxes, freezers, and refrigerators, health care workers and laboratories can safely transit medicines, drugs, and test samples from one place to another amidst the current coronavirus pandemic.
Some of the major reasons for the growth of Cold Chain Equipment market is the growing need for temperature monitoring in the pharmaceuticals and healthcare cold chain for various pharmaceutical products. Pharmaceutical companies require cold storage solutions to preserve temperature-sensitive products such as vaccines, biotech products, and insulin until they reach end-users. Following the same book, the market growth of the cold chain equipment market is equally dependent on the food and beverage industry. Owing to the change in lifestyle and higher disposable income, consumers are now shifting towards preserved foods such as processed meat, ready-to-eat food products, yogurt, and organic fruit pulps. These products require refrigerators, milk coolers, cold boxes to preserve the essential nutrients for an extended period.

The on-grid segment which is categorized under storage equipment involves walk-in coolers, freezers, ice-lined fridges, and deep freezers. The off-grid segment under the storage equipment segment includes solar chillers, milk coolers, and solar-powered cold boxes which are used to prevent food loss during the processing and post-harvesting stages of products. The off-grid segment is expected to see steady growth in the years ahead due to the government initiatives to encourage innovation and attract investments in the off-grid segment.
The application segment is sub-divided into various applications, such as fruits and vegetables, fruit and pulp concentrates, dairy products, fish, meat, seafood, pharmaceuticals, processed food, bakery, confectioneries, and others.
