APAC industrial refrigeration systems market forecasted to reach $10,696.1 Million by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.
The market has been witnessing considerable growth, mainly due to factors such as growing food and beverage processing industry and increasing cold chain market.
Insights on market segments
Based on equipment type, the APAC industrial refrigeration systems market is categorized into compressors, condensers, evaporators, controls and others (pumps, valves, vessels and auxiliary equipment). The compressor category generated highest market revenue share of over 35% in 2017, as the compressors hold the largest share in the initial cost of the equipment. However, owing to increasing significance of controls in the coming years, which enables improvement of efficiency and functionality of the whole industrial refrigeration system, the controls category is projected to grow fastest, during the forecast period.
Based on the refrigerant type, the APAC industrial refrigeration systems market has been categorized into ammonia, carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) and others, wherein others include chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), fluorocarbon (FC), hydrocarbon (HC), Air and Water (H2O). The ammonia-based industrial refrigeration units recorded the highest market share of about 40% in 2017. As the region edges closer to phasing out of HFC, owing to its high ozone depletion potential (ODP) and a global warming potential (GWP), several companies are currently considering ammonia as a viable alternative, which is relatively cheaper as well as highly efficient.
Industrial refrigeration systems market in India is projected to register the fastest growth
The industrial refrigeration systems market in India is projected to record the fastest growth in the APAC region. India is the largest producer of milk, second largest producer of fruits and vegetables, and third largest fish producer globally. Dairy being one of the most intricate and diverse sectors, it requires refrigeration in the production and storage of products such as milk, cheese and butter. Furthermore, the food processing industry is getting considerable government support, for instance, during the 11th and 12th five-year plan, the government of India sanctioned 40 mega food park projects. The growing food processing industry in countries like India would support the market growth in the coming years.

Growing food and beverage processing industry and strengthening cold chain infrastructure are the major factors driving the market
Growing food and beverage processing industry in developing countries such as India and China, is one of the key drivers supporting APAC industrial refrigeration systems market growth. The processed and ready-to-eat food is now being consumed in majority of APAC countries. The food processing rate in developing countries is however quite low. China processes 40% of its food produce. While, India’s food processing industry ranks fifth in the world in terms of exports of processed foods. Moreover, considerable government support with ambitious ‘Make in India’ initiative is further supporting the food processing industry in the country.
Also, cold chain infrastructure garnered a lot of attention owing to the growing meat and pharmaceutical industries. Cold chain is a series of refrigerated storage, production and distribution activities, along with the associated logistics and equipment, to maintain a desired low temperature range. It is used to preserve seafood, agricultural products, frozen food, and pharmaceutical drugs. These products require a low temperature range for transportation and distribution from production to consumer end. The demand for meat, seafood and bio-pharmaceuticals are supporting growth of cold chain industry, which in turn is boosting the demand for industrial refrigeration systems in APAC.
Surging demand for CO2/ammonia cascade refrigeration is poised to offer lucrative opportunity for market players
There has been a surging demand for CO2/ammonia cascade refrigeration, as this system avoids the weaknesses of each refrigerant and make use of their strengths. One of the advantages of the cascade system is that in a facility with heavy freezer load requirements, CO2 has better efficiency than ammonia. Another advantage of this system is that all portions of the system are under positive pressure, which negates the need for an air purging sub-system found on ammonia installations with freezers and refrigeration pressures that run under vacuum pressure. The rising demand for cascade system is expected to pose lucrative opportunity for market players.
