Consumer Demands Are Heating Up the Cold Storage Market
Several market factors have had a recent and significant impact on the cold storage equipment market.
According to the 26th Annual Third-Party Logistics Study, “global population growth, increased consumer demand for fresh products, strong grocery e-commerce sales and a wider variety of perishables are driving the need for cold storage space.”
Coronavirus has also contributed to the growth of the cold storage market. Pharmaceutical storage has become a focus with the development of the COVID-19 vaccine. Further, consumer demand has increased for grocery delivery services, making cold storage and refrigeration more critical to commercial grocers than ever before.
