The global refrigerated transport market reached a value of US$ 16.11 Billion in 2020. Refrigerated transport refers to the temperature-controlled freight shipping vehicles, such as refrigerated trucks and shipping containers. These vehicles are equipped with a built-in cooling system that maintains the desired temperature throughout the transportation process. They are commonly used for transporting products such as fruits, meat, seafood, and dairy, along with non-food products such as pharmaceuticals and flowers. These vehicles aid in maximizing the shelf life of the product, while ensuring year-round availability of seasonal products.
The growing food and beverage industry represent as one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. This, along with the growth of the cold chain industry across the globe, is further contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, owing to the growing health-consciousness among consumers, the demand for frozen variants of various fresh products has increased, along with the growing demand for the service from residential as well as foodservice operators, such as quick-service restaurants (QSRs), hotels and other eateries. Since the food products and raw materials require controlled temperatures during transportation for storage and prevention of spoilage, refrigerated transport has become integral to the distribution process. Additionally, the manufacturing of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical drugs and expanding trade opportunities across the globe, are also providing a thrust to the market growth. Other factors, such as the implementation of favorable government policies and regulations regarding the production, processing, transportation and quality of products, along with the increasing adoption of marine transport vehicles, owing to their cost-effectiveness, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global refrigerated transport market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
