North America Cold Chain Market Growth and Forecast (2021-2026):

The North America Cold Chain Market size was assessed to be USD 81.2 billion in 2021, and it is foreseen to progress up to USD 142.6 billion by the end of 2026 at a CAGR of 9.7% during the evaluation period. Demand for these solutions is expected to rise during the anticipated period as the perishable goods transaction increases.

Market Overview:

The cold chain is a system that can be employed for the management and logistics of temperature-sensitive products with the use of refrigeration methods and thermal packaging. There are several ways that cold chain products are transported, such as rail vehicles, refrigerated trucks, air cargo, and refrigerated vessels. Cold chains combine proper logistics for temperature-sensitive products with the aid of thermal and refrigerated packaging procedures. The cold chain application is mainly applied to chilled and frozen food, which increases its own shelf life and maintains quality standards for a long time. The cold chain helps maintain the biochemical and physical properties of frozen foods in particular and regulates off-season market prices. It also limits product losses and wastage, which will improve the overall revenue of the producers. The cold chain is a technology that relies entirely on physical means to maintain adequate temperature conditions, therefore, called as the temperature control supply chain.

Recent Developments in North America Cold Chain Industry:

  • December 2017: Americold added a new Clearfield plant by adding more than 9.5 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled storage space, adding the total capacity of the campus to about 22 million cubic feet3. The Clearfield campus is Americold's gateway to deployment to the west coast of the United States, favoring national and multinational food and beverage startups and industries.

North America Cold Chain Market Growth:
