No frost refrigerators gain traction due to energy-efficiency

The no-frost refrigerator industry is slated to witness nearly 5% growth through 2032. These refrigeration units are used extensively in commercial and residential settings owing to their benefits, such as low energy consumption, automatic defrost systems, and 360-degree cooling. These fridges also have lower maintenance requirements as compared to conventional systems and do not overwork the compressor, which increases their lifespan. Such features are playing a key role in boosting the sales of no-frost refrigerators.

Widespread availability of non-inverter refrigerators

Non-inverter refrigerator market shipments are projected to surpass 120 million units by 2032. These refrigerators are economical and have wider availability, which is a major factor propelling industry expansion. Leading participants, such as Godrej, Videocon, Kenmore, Frigidaire, and Samsung are providing a diverse range of non-inverter fridges. However, the inability to adjust temperature levels and high noise operation are affecting product revenues to some extent.
