Growing awareness related to adoption of sustainable and eco-friendly refrigeration products is positively influencing the market statistics. Blast chiller manufacturers are introducing new models of environmentally friendly chillers with no ozone depleting properties in response to the amplifying market trend. For instance, in June 2020, Everidge launched its eco-friendly PBF 4.0 blast chiller with innovative R290 propane refrigeration system that significantly reduces the environmental impact.

Industry challenges restricting the growth of blast chillers include the presence of several alternatives to these appliances. High capacity commercial freezers and liquid nitrogen-based refrigeration devices act as substitutes to chillers. The rising adoption of these substitutes in small cafes and restaurants due to their cost-effective nature is expected to hamper the market demand for blast chillers. However, the introduction of small sized, compact variants of chillers by leading market players will reduce the impact of this restraint over the forecast time frame.
