Over the past few years, the Indian refrigeration equipment market is witnessing an upward growth trajectory. The rising demand for Dairy, frozen & chilled products among consumers, evolving lifestyle, rapid urbanization and growth in the retail sector including an increasing number of hypermarkets and supermarkets are some of the factors projected to create a significant growth backdrop for this market.
While most businesses have been experiencing a lull, massively impacting the economy, with the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic which is unlikely to disappear soon, this domain is experiencing a surge. The current transport and workforce bottlenecks encountered are boosting the use of cold supply chain and temperature-controlled warehouses utilized for handling pharmaceuticals, perishable foods, agro produce and dairy products.
