Commercial Refrigeration Equipment

US demand for commercial refrigeration equipment is moderating from the 2010-2015 period, when growth was fueled by a rebound in sales after the economic recession. Suppliers are expected to benefit from the scheduled 2020 phaseout of R-22 refrigerant, which will prompt commercial refrigeration equipment operators to either retrofit their equipment to use an acceptable alternative refrigerant (raising demand for parts such as valves and filters), or to replace their existing equipment (boosting system sales). A number of alternative refrigerants can be used instead of R-22, and retrofitting is a less costly option for operators. However, installing new systems will spell long-term cost savings due to a boost in energy efficiency.

Regulations on industry tight

According to Commercial Refrigeration Equipment, a new study from The Freedonia Group, the commercial refrigeration industry is subject to strict regulatory scrutiny, which can impact demand. For example, HFCs have a high global warming potential, and as a result government regulators continue to seek other refrigerant options. In July 2015 the US EPA issued a final rule regarding HFC use, outlawing the use of certain HFCs in a number of commercial refrigeration systems. The final rule has various target dates depending on the type of equipment, with some going into effect as early as July 2016; others not becoming effective until January 2020.

Energy efficiency standards in effect

Freedonia forecasts that commercial refrigeration equipment sales growth will also be supported by more stringent minimum energy efficiency standards for certain products, most notably reach-in and walk-in refrigerators and freezers. These standards will become effective on all reach-ins and walk-ins made after June 2017 and will result in many producers using higher quality and more expensive materials, which will raise average equipment prices and increase 2020 demand in value terms.

Beverage refrigeration, display cases exhibit most rapid gains

Transportation refrigeration systems comprise the largest share of commercial refrigeration equipment demand in the US, accounting for 23 percent of the 2015 total. However, these products will record the slowest rate of increase in demand through 2020 due to a significant slowdown in refrigerated truck and trailer fleet expansion activity following a period of robust gains between 2010 and 2015. Beverage refrigeration equipment and display cases will post the fastest sales increases through 2020. Beverage refrigeration equipment sales will be boosted by continued growth in the number of eating and drinking establishments and associated foodservice revenues. While the majority of US production will continue to be utilized to satisfy local demand, competition from less costly imported products, especially from regional neighbor Mexico, as well as China, will intensify, limiting industry output gains.
