The Europe Cold Chain Market was worth US$ xx million in 2020 and is foreseen it will reach a valuation of US$ xx million by 2025 with an annual development rate of xx% between 2020 and 2025.
The cold chain is a temperature-controlled storage activity that includes a series of processes such as raw material storage, production, storage of finished products, equipment, and logistics, as well as distribution of final products. Refrigeration solutions designed to maintain product quality and shell shelf life, such as fresh seafood, chemicals, produce, photographic film, frozen food, and pharmaceuticals. Cold chains are essential to extend marketing periods, avoid excess capacity, reduce transport bottlenecks during peak periods, and maintain product quality. This process includes temperature-controlled warehouses for storage and cold-insulated transport vehicles for product distribution. Cold chain logistics solutions are widely used to transport and store vegetables, fruits, pharmaceuticals, beef, and pharmaceuticals. The modes of transport used are refrigerated cargo, refrigerated wagons, refrigerated trucks, and air cargo. This includes related equipment and logistics to maintain cold storage temperatures to preserve product quality and shelf life. Products like food, pharmaceuticals, seafood, and photographic film require refrigeration. Cold cargo is used to transport perishable products or products with high sterilization properties such as pharmaceuticals and medicines.
The evolution of the Europe Cold Chain market for the food industry will be driven by increasing demand for frozen and chilled food and beverages due to changes in consumer preferences.
With the growing population around the world, the demand for processed and convenience foods has increased, driving the Europe Cold Chain market in the food industry. Increasing demand for fresh produce and increased shelf life of products are expected to be the main drivers of the Europe Cold Chain market. The Europe Cold Chain market is driven by several initiatives taken by government to develop cold chain infrastructure. The rise in world disposable income and rapid urbanization have also brought good signs for the development of the entire market. In addition, the need for transportation and refrigeration facilities, as well as increased export and import activities, led to numerous capital investments from major players. The development of the international trade in perishable foods will also have a positive impact on the Europe Cold Chain market. Cold chain service providers aim to adopt advanced technology to meet the growing demand for food safety for processed and convenience foods. This is the reason why Cold Chain will be considered the best business opportunity for years to come, leading to numerous multinational vendors infiltrating this market to offer better Cold Chain solutions. Therefore, the adoption of cutting-edge technology will promote excessive growth of the market in the food industry.
Demand for cold chains is increasing as demand for organized retail increases and consumer awareness to mitigate food waste increases. With the advancement of new technology, the use of cold chains in the food and beverage sector can prevent the deterioration of food quality. Furthermore, the enormous development potential of emerging markets and uncharted regions offers new development opportunities for players operating in the Europe Cold Chain market. The government is taking the initiative to promote the cold chain industry. In addition, increased investment and import and export activity from the major players in the cold chain industry are supposed to drive European business over the foreseen period.
High energy costs are a growing concern for Europe Cold Chain suppliers. Cold storage facilities use traditional fluorescent lighting fixtures that are required throughout the year according to regulations. Rising fuel costs and efficient management of fuel consumption are another major concern for cold chain suppliers, as requirements for cold chains, especially refrigerated vehicles in Europe, increase in recent years. Emerging economies face a variety of challenges when running cold chains. The annual operating cost of a cold chain business is much higher per cubic foot. Another limitation for new entrants is high property prices. Acquiring land and building a fully integrated world-class refrigeration facility with a 1 million cubic foot storage capacity requires a significant capital investment. Since the refrigeration unit is not mobile, the location of the project is a key factor and getting enough land to build a refrigeration facility is not easy for small players.
Geographically the Europe Cold Chain Market is segmented into UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands, Turkey, Czech Republic and Rest of Europe. By temperature type, the frozen segment is estimated to occupy the largest share of the Europe Cold Chain market during the forecast period. Freezing food further preserves the shelf life of food to make it more inert. This freezing process promotes food spoilage and helps slow down biological and chemical reactions that limit shelf life.
Depending on the application, the dairy and frozen dessert segments are anticipatedto hold most of the market during the projection period. The main concerns in the transportation of dairy and frozen desserts are constant control of temperature, exposure to dust and sunlight.
Coronavirus has affected supply chains in all industries due to limited trade during the pandemic, and as a result, food manufacturers are expected to drive the market with a focus on storage not only of food, but also to increase the useful life of cold chains. Consumers source long-lasting processed foods into perishable goods, and limited trade movements between countries have exceeded their cold chain storage capacity in some countries. These advances underscore the need for the food value chain to move from the open-air market to a cold chain model of long-term storage of perishable products. These factors are expected to drive demand for cold chains during the forecast period.
Geographically the Europe Cold Chain Market is segmented into UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands, Turkey, Czech Republic and Rest of Europe. Europe cold chain market is predicted to experience significant growth over the projected period due to increased government investment in logistics infrastructure development and the penetration of warehouse management systems. Italy is a major regional contributor and is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period. Technological advancements in seafood packaging, processing and storage are expected to drive growth.
