The market potential for processed and frozen food products has grown tremendously due to their lower adoption rates. The consumption of ready-to-eat meals, such as frozen pizzas, desserts, and snacks, has also grown significantly. Such foods market necessitates a reliable cold storage technology that preserves the chemical composition of food even after months. The need for cold storage systems is likely to rise in the coming year as international trading of these culinary goods grows.

Based on the component type, the global Refrigeration Coolers market has been segmented into Evaporators & Air coolers and Condenser. Further the Evaporators & Air coolers are segmented into Air Units, Dry Coolers, Brine Coolers and Blast/Tunnel Unit cooler. And the Condenser is segmented into Evaporative and Air-Cooled & Water-cooled. Evaporators & Air coolers are expected to hold a major market share during the forecast period covered. Based on Refrigerant type, the global Refrigeration Coolers market has been segmented into HFC/HFO, NH3, CO2, Glycol and Others. Amongst which NH3 holds a largest share in the market mainly due to growing FMCG industry. Based on the application, the market has been bifurcated into Commercial and Industrial. During the projected period, the refrigeration coolers market is expected to be dominated by commercial applications.

The regions included in this study are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share in the 2021 year and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the projected period.

COVID-19 Analysis

COVID-19 had a tremendous impact on the refrigeration industry due to the pandemic lockdown's devastating impact on the manufacturing sector in several places. Due to the unexpected lockout in 2020, food cold chain technology areas saw a significant decline due to abruptions in manufacturing, production, and demand and supply of refrigeration components. However, with most individuals working from home and countries under lockdown, ready-to-cook meal products have been flying off the shelves in recent months. In 2020, one of India's online grocery stores, Grofers, reported a 170 percent increase in sales in the ready-to-eat category, a 31 percent increase in ready-made meals and mixes, and a 41 percent increase in frozen food, indicating a sudden consumer shift from home-cooked food to ready-to-eat products. Indeed, it is predicted that this shift in consumer behavior will greatly boost the market examined over the projected period.

Market Dynamics

The global refrigeration coolers market is driven by the growth in the investments in refrigerated warehouses and cold storage facilities and rising demand for ready-to-eat products, beverages, and frozen food. Conversely, the requirement of high initial investment is hindering the growth of the market.
