Middle East & Africa (MEA) industrial refrigeration systems market is expected to reach $2,406.8 Million by the end of 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.
Countries, predominantly Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in the MEA region are poised for growth in industrial refrigeration systems market owing to rapid commercialization of cold-chain logistics as well as increasing adoption of environment friendly refrigerants.
Insights on market segments
Based on equipment type, the MEA industrial refrigeration systems market has been classified into compressors, condensers, evaporators, controls and others, wherein others include pumps, valves, vessels and auxiliary equipment. The market for controls category is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the energy saving and customizable features of control systems, while improving overall efficiency of the existing refrigeration systems.
Based on refrigerant type, the MEA 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 market for CO2-based industrial refrigeration systems is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. CO2 provides significant efficiency advantages over other refrigerants while being less hazardous to the environment along with being potentially safer to operate.

Increasing use of refrigeration systems in chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries is driving the market
Chemicals and pharmaceutical industry is the second largest adopter of industrial refrigeration systems in MEA. The chemical, petrochemical and oil refining industries needs refrigeration for condensation of gases, dehumidification of air, and preservation of compounds. The Middle Eastern countries, namely Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar and Kuwait are fundamentally rich in crude oil and gas, and are one of the largest suppliers of petrochemicals around the globe.
Moreover, in chemical industry, there is a need for advanced refrigeration for maintaining the temperature limits of certain raw materials, semi-finished and finished products. Hence, owing to increased use of refrigeration in these industries, demand for refrigeration in chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries expected to drive MEA industrial refrigeration systems market.
MEA Industrial Refrigeration Systems Market Competitiveness
The locally manufactured refrigeration systems are targeted at lower and medium price segments, while most of the higher priced complex refrigeration systems are being imported. The indigenous companies have developed and sustained a strong service and maintenance base over the years and offer complete design, development, production, installation, and after sales service of refrigeration systems.
Some of the major players operating in the MEA industrial refrigeration systems market include Adearest, Carel Industries SpA, Ingersoll Rand plc, United Technologies Corporation, Emerson Electric Co., Danfoss A/S, Star Refrigeration Ltd., Daikin Industries Ltd, Dover Corporation, Hussmann Corporation, and Johnson Controls International plc.
