Analyst view: “Rising concerns related to environmental impact of toxic refrigerants are increasing the adoption of eco-friendly industrial refrigerators in the market.”
The major market factor restraining the growth of the industrial refrigeration system market is the high initial installation cost associated with these systems. The leading market players offer extended warranties up to five years on the equipment, restricting the new equipment installation. Additionally, the maintenance and repair cost associated with these machines is comparatively lower than the installation of new system, posing a challenge for the new equipment sales. High energy consumption of these systems also is adversely impacting the market representation.
The COVID-19 health crisis has inflicted high losses to the global economy. Several countries across the globe imposed stringent lockdowns and restrictions on movement during the months of March and May 2020. This led to complete halt of several industries including manufacturing, e-commerce, and retail, hampering the product adoption in these sectors. However, the pandemic led to an unprecedented growth in the pharmaceutical industry, creating robust market opportunities. Industrial refrigeration system are likely to witness a rising demand, supported by government policies.
