According to Renub Research latest report, Refrigerated Transport Market, Global Forecast 2023-2028, Industry Trends, Growth, Insight, Impact of Inflation, Company Analysis” Refrigerated Transport Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.37% from 2022 to 2028. The food and pharmaceutical industries have grown rapidly, leading to an increased demand for refrigerated transport logistics service providers. To keep up with the evolving industry trends, the logistics industry is continuously expanding its capacity for refrigeration in the supply chain. As a result, there are various emerging trends in the industry, and logistics service providers are working to keep pace and evolve to meet these demands.

Refrigerated transport vehicles are specially designed to maintain a specific temperature range, usually between -20°C to 8°C, depending on the type of product being transported. These vehicles can be vans, trucks, or containers that are equipped with refrigeration units, insulation, and temperature monitoring systems to ensure that the products remain at the desired temperature during transit.

The future of the refrigerated transport industry seems promising as there is a growing demand for its services and advancements in technologies and systems. The emergence of the health food trend and the growth of the middle class worldwide have led to an increase in demand for products that were not in existence a few decades ago. This includes items such as probiotic supplements, kefir, and kombucha, which are popular among health enthusiasts. The efficient movement of these products depends on the development of a digitized, highly efficient, and globalized cold chain industry.


Chilled food market is projected to achieve a high Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in the refrigerated transport industry


The refrigerated transport industry is expected to experience significant growth in the chilled food market. This growth is due to the increasing demand for perishable food products that require refrigeration during transport to maintain their quality and freshness. The rise in population and changes in dietary habits are expected to further drive the demand for chilled food products and, consequently, refrigerated transport services. The demand for dairy products, beverages, fresh fruits, bakery, and confectionery items is also increasing, with developing nations experiencing significant growth in this segment.

Emerging countries are also witnessing a surge in demand for chilled food products. The growth of chilled food products is attributed to the increasing number of supermarkets worldwide, providing ample opportunities for the growth of this segment. Therefore, the refrigerated transport industry is expected to witness a high growth rate in the future.
