Why is the cold storage market rapidly increasing?

There are a number of reasons for the increase in this market and for the increase in the demand for perishable products. 

Consumer awareness for elimination of food waste is increasing as the cost of food is rising and food waste becomes a more relevant topic. Throwing out food is no longer a viable option for consumers.

With disposable incomes increasing in many countries, more citizens are able to access perishable foods, increasing the demand for cold storage. Along with this, these consumers want food that is not able to be grown locally, so importation is the reality, again increasing the need for cold storage along the importation routes. Temperature control is needed in the country of origin, along the shipping route and in the country where they are shipped.

Since the pandemic, there is an increase of people who are eating at home. This is fueling the need for cold storage with at-home chefs wanting fresh and perishable ingredients.
