Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers Market size is set to surpass USD 600 million by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Growing research and development activities and rising incidence of infectious diseases has increased the adoption ultra-low temperature freezers (ULTF) to store various biological products in order to ensure their shelf life and quality. Ultra-low temperature freezers are used for the storage of enzymes, drugs, chemicals, bacteria, viruses and tissue samples due to their labile nature. Thus, with growing focus on research activities in the field of immunology and virology, the demand for ULTFs is projected to grow in the coming years.
Rising demand for COVID-19 vaccine will boost the ultra-low temperature freezers market growth
Outbreak of COVID-19 has enlarged the pool of infected population around the globe. More than 1 million people have died because of this infectious disease. Several measures have been undertaken for the development of vaccine as effective measure for controlling infection. Storage and distribution of vaccines to different parts of the world have been the main intent of the government and authorities. Thus, several vaccine developers are partnering with ULTF manufacturers to effectively transport and store vaccines. For instance, Pfizer is planning to distribute more than 200 million doses of vaccines annually in almost 165 countries. The recommended storage temperature for these vaccines is -70°C±10°C for up to 10 days unopened. Thus, growing demand for the vaccines and technological development in the industry will further drive the growth over the coming years.
Cost-effectiveness and advancements will enhance the acceptance of chest freezers
Chest freezers accounted for 5% of the market share in 2019. Cost-effectiveness and automatic defrost capacity are few of the factors driving the preference for chest freezers. Furthermore, considering their advantage in storage of less used items for long duration, chest freezers are being adopted widely.
