Innovations to Gather Momentum in Commercial Refrigeration Equipment Market as End Users Lean on Greater Efficiency and Greener Technologies: FMI

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – The worldwide commercial refrigeration equipment market will grow 3.4% in 2019 to total US$ 46 billion, up from US$ 44.8 billion in 2018, according to Future Market Insights (FMI).

FMI analysts expect commercial refrigeration equipment sales to remain strong going forward, driven by greater production of F&B goods and preferential shifts towards quick service restaurants (QSRs) that align with today’s ‘on-the-go’ culture. Analysts also expect sustainable and energy-efficient refrigeration systems to become a norm across the end-use industries, which should compel manufacturers to increase their investments in R&D and product innovations.

“The enforcement of new refrigerant regulations such as the EPA 680 Upgrade, and the Kigali Amendment for the phase-down of HFC refrigerants will largely impact the market growth,” said the FMI analyst. “Manufacturers who are keeping the innovation quotient high and providing turn-key solutions to meet regulatory requirements, with safety to end users at their core, will be rewarded in the long run. Leveraging energy-efficient technologies to offer low global warming potential (GWP) products with rich functionalities will be the ticket to capturing significant market share as well.”
