  • Published Date: January 17, 2022

Blast Chillers Market size is set to surpass USD 2 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc. The global shipments are expected to reach 70,000 units by 2027.

Blast chillers are witnessing a substantial demand due to rising catering services and hotel & restaurant chains by increasing population. Market players are acquiring other blast chiller manufacturers to enhance their service offerings. For instance, in March 2021, Tecnoeka acquired ATOL Srl, a manufacturer of blast chillers of Sincold brand in Italy. Stringent government regulations against the emission of blast chillers are encouraging companies to innovate new equipment with eco-friendly refrigerants.

Increasing food rescuing activities by governments to decrease the hunger index globally will propel the blast chillers market revenue. Chillers are being adopted by supermarkets as well as restaurants to preserve the packed foods and remaining edible foods to support food rescue program.

Expensive ownership cost is a key factor, which is adversely impacting the blast chillers sales worldwide. Furthermore, strict government regulations against refrigerants used in the chillers are hampering the industry demand. They also require high energy absorption for instant and prolonged cooling of the inner surface, thereby increasing the maintenance cost of the owners. To tackle these challenges, OEMs are integrating smart energy management into their flash freezers for low energy consumption and are using eco-friendly refrigerants with low GHG emissions.


Analyst view: “The proliferation of hotels & restaurants as well as supermarkets led by rising population is augmenting the blast chillers market growth. Integration of smart technologies to lower the energy consumption and reduce the maintenance will provide a positive outlook in the F&B industry.”

Stringent lockdowns enforced by various governments in 2020 owing to COVID-19 pandemic affected the overall market statistics. Industry participants faced raw material shortage by disruptions in the global supply chain. However, government provided relaxations to blast freezer OEMs due to freezers’ key role in preserving the medical essentials and vaccines for longevity in lockdown time. Owing to this, flash freezers observed upward industry trend in the health care sector amid pandemics. To enhance their market revenue, industry players unveiled new models to attract greater clients from the medical sector.
