Supportive government initiatives to strengthen the cold chain infrastructure are providing new market opportunities across the globe. In September 2020, the government of India gave an approval to 27 cold chain projects through the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Sampada initiative in 11 states of India. The government announced an investment of USD 28 million in this initiative, driving the market.
 

Industry challenges hampering the wide adoption of industrial refrigeration systems include stringent regulations and high costs associated with refrigerants used in these systems. The rapidly increasing prices of refrigerants will hamper the market demand for large industrial refrigerators.
 

As per the market data shared by Carel Industries, in July 2017, the prices of R-404A and R-507 refrigerants increased by over 225%, and R-410A and R-134a prices increased by 100% in Europe. High taxes charged by government authorities on refrigerants used in industrial systems will hamper the market revenues.
 

Rising economic losses inflicted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are expected to restrict the growing market size in 2020. The industrial refrigeration system industry is severely impacted by growing disruptions in supply chain and unavailability of raw materials. Market players are facing a huge gap in demand and supply of industrial refrigeration systems due to rising financial insecurities among industrial customers.
 

However, the high importance of cold storage systems to preserve and transport critical vaccines will generate new opportunities for the market during the pandemic.
