Global Laboratory Freezers Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the global laboratory freezers market size was worth USD 3.23 billion in 2022 and estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.8%, to reach USD 4.08 billion by 2027.

The global Laboratory Freezers market is developing at a rapid pace. Laboratory refrigerators are used to cool samples or specimens for preservation. They are refrigeration units for storing blood plasma and other blood products, vaccines, and other medical and pharmaceutical supplies. They need to be totally hygienic and wholly reliable and thus differ from standard refrigerators used in homes/restaurants. There are four types of laboratory refrigerators - Explosion-proof freezers, Blood bank refrigerators, Chromatography refrigerators, and Lab fridges.


Technological advances, growing blood transfusions, and rising cases of organ transplantations are key growth drivers to the laboratory freezers market.

At a global level, the number of organ transplantation procedures is increasing significantly. The organs need to be preserved under specific cooled conditions to keep them healthy, make them available and ready for the proceedings, demand laboratory freezers, and drive growth to the market. As per the U.S. Government Information on Organ Donation and Transplantation, around 39,718 transplants were performed in 2019.

Moreover, blood collected from the donors and the blood components are required freezers and used for the treatments such as blood loss caused by accidents, bleeding disorders, and trauma, which is further expected to accelerate market growth. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 60,530 leukemia cases are likely to be diagnosed by the end of 2020, demanding more blood to treat the diseases and augmenting the laboratory freezers market growth.

Furthermore, the rising elder people population suffering from various diseases needs blood, and organ transplantation provides lucrative support to the global laboratory freezers market.


The cost of the freezers is expensive, which is limiting the market growth to some extent. Increased usage of renovated or redecorated equipment is further hampering the market growth. The iceboxes used in the freezers may lead to the lowering of the ozone layer, showing a little negative impact on the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global laboratory freezers market:

COVID-19 is a worldwide public health emergency that has affected nearly every market. The disease spreads rapidly through respiratory droplets from sneezing or coughing, primarily through direct contact with infected individuals. In all laboratories and research laboratories, laboratory freezers are used. Laboratory freezers are commonly used in medical facilities, blood banks, pharmacies, and biotechnological industries to preserve biological materials such as organs, blood, serum, and vaccine tests. These freezers must meet relevant protection and temperature consistency requirements.

Increasing demand for blood and blood components, increasing the number of organ donation procedures, and technical advances in laboratory freezers are all driving market development. The storage of volatile chemicals, industrial-grade compounds that can combust if exposed to the environment, vaccines, and blood samples is done in a laboratory freezer. DNA/RNA, autopsy specimens, tissues & plasma, blood, hormones, antibiotics, and medicines are all stored in ultra-low temperature freezers. Laboratory Freezers, as per a WHO protocol, the storage of respiratory and serum specimens in domestic frost-free freezers should be stopped due to large temperature fluctuations. Laboratory freezers are expected to put additional strain on supply chains because they are used for research, but steady demand could mean continued growth in the coming years.
