VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the future of insulated coolers market looks promising with an increase in camping, traveling, medical, fishing, and boating applications.

The global insulated coolers market size was valued at US$ 550 million in 2018, and is expected to become a billion-dollar market by 2029.

Biodegradable Insulated Coolers Emerge as a Major Trend

Biodegradable insulated coolers are gaining huge traction, owing to low-cost offerings and increased intolerance of single-use plastics. Continuous launch of biodegradable or sustainable products remains a major strategy for major players to gain a distinct competitive edge. For instance, in April 2019, Igloo Product Corp. introduced an eco-friendly insulated cooler – RECOOL, made with recycled paper pulp and Alkyl ketene dimer, a natural waxing and binding agent. Similar innovations at the global platform will impact the insulated coolers market growth in the following years.

Hard Coolers to Gain Prominence in Future
