US Cold Storage Market Growth and Forecast (2021-2026):

The US Cold Storage Market size was worth US$ 15.26 billion in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 19.69 billion by the end of 2026, expanding at an annual compound rate of 3.7% between 2021 and 2026. The United States is widely considered to be one of the leading markets in technological development responsible for the effective management of cold storage processes.

US Cold storage Market

Market Overview:

Cold chains provide storage and distribution services for products that must be kept at a specific temperature. Most of the products like meat, fruits, and others are heat sensitive and need to store and transport a particular temperature range. This has created an extensive cold chain infrastructure across the USA. Globalization has shortened the distance between countries around the world, but the physical distance between these regions remains an essential aspect of some freight transport. The longer the length, the more cargo or cargo can be damaged in one of the complex transport tasks. Some products can be damaged by impacts such as glass, but extreme temperature changes can damage other products. Cold zones are built using refrigeration equipment to space adequately and remove heat to keep the temperature low.

Recent Developments in US Cold Storage Industry:

  • Lineage Logistics Holdings, LLC opens a refrigerated distribution center in South Carolina to facilitate public access to imported products and provide solutions to export products to foreign markets. The new distribution center has installed the latest technology for large scale blast freezing, product handling and energy savings.
  • In December 2017, AGRO Merchants (USA) acquired Grocontinental Limited (UK), a provider of refrigeration and logistics services. The agreement strengthened AGRO's position as a leading provider of refrigeration and logistics in the UK and Ireland.
  • In December 2017, Americold Logistics (USA) added a new facility to the Utah Clearfield campus. This expansion helped increase the company's market leadership in northern Utah to more than 50% of its total temperature-controlled storage capacity.
  • Lineage Logistics (USA) acquired Partner Logistics (USA) in June 2017 to develop and extend its existing service offerings.

US Cold Storage Market Growth:

Managing the inventory of medicines, such as vaccines and drugs, is an expensive process, so adequate safety measures must be taken to protect the quality of the product. This is going to support the cold storage business in the USA.


Growth in this business can be attributed to various factors, such as advances in packaging, processing and storage technology for perishable food and temperature-sensitive items. As risks and investments in grain crops increase, farmers are turning to grow fruits and vegetables. Since most of these crops require refrigeration, it is expected to encourage the development of refrigeration facilities. Service providers have stepped up efforts to protect temperature-controlled products from possible tampering or malicious behavior. Facility security includes refrigerated warehouses, as well as staff and visitors. As a result, there has been an increased demand for the implementation of monitoring components such as telematics and telemetry devices, RFID devices, sensors and data loggers, and network devices to improve refrigerated storage and transport performance and efficiency. As the demand for connected trucks, refrigerated high-cube trailers, and vehicles that facilitate transportation between products increases, the need for refrigerated transportation services is likely to increase.

Increasingly, health awareness among consumers has inspired healthier eating habits and increased demand for quality products. Outsourcing services are gaining popularity among companies due to factors such as increased competition, rapid increases in operating costs, and strict quality standards. Additionally, the many benefits of outsourcing services, such as reduced operating costs, increased flexibility, increased efficiency, and experience, facilitated widespread adoption. Providing useful features like advanced refrigeration technology, monitoring and tracking systems for various products such as fruits and vegetables, Advanced Refrigeration Technology dramatically reduces the chance of wasting temperature-sensitive products.

Also, outsourcing cold and frozen storage operations offer manufacturers a variety of cost advantages. This eliminates warehouse space and the costs associated with management, technology, transportation, and labor. Working with suppliers can reduce operating costs, such as employee wages, heating and cooling fees, insurance and energy costs. As a result, manufacturers can increase their profit margins and focus on key business activities, such as making high-quality products, expanding the customer base, and meeting customer needs.


The lack of the necessary infrastructure to maintain a cold chain has great challenges to expand the company in the regional market. Additionally, the lack of electrical connections for refrigerated trailers in transportation hubs and ports can hinder market growth in this area. The refrigeration equipment has some drawbacks that can affect the demand for the product. Refrigeration equipment has significant capital and ongoing costs. This equipment has a high operating price and consumes a large amount of electricity. When a small quantity of products is shipped, it is expensive, and margins are reduced. Most refrigerants and refrigeration equipment have fluorocarbons that contain chlorine. This equipment releases a large amount of heat into the environment, raising the temperature of the earth. Refrigerated storage protects perishable products from decomposition, but long-term storage can reduce the aroma of the product.

Regional Analysis:

California led the US cold storage market in 2018, and the state has a large user base, which is why it is expected to remain in a significant state from 2019 to 2025. The state represents the largest refrigeration facility with 400 million installations, which can be attributed to the large population base. US's demand for products is supposed to increase as investment in automation of material handling equipment increases. Material handling enables the storage, protection and control of products in the supply chain. Refrigeration in materials handling has resulted in significant improvements and investments in this area in recent years. Some of the most profitable states are North Carolina and South Carolina, and they are anticipated to show CAGR of 5.3% and 4.8%, respectively, from 2019 to 2025, respectively. Advances in transportation facilities, technological advancements, and increased adoption of frozen foods lead to market growth with demand for refrigeration and storage.
