US demand for commercial refrigeration equipment is forecast to increase 3.1 percent annually through 2020 to $11.3 billion. Beverage refrigeration equipment and display cases will be the fastest growing types. An upcoming ban on R-22 refrigerant will force equipment retrofits and replacements. Foodservice will be the fastest growing market.

This study analyzes the $9.7 billion US commercial refrigeration equipment industry. It presents historical demand data (2005, 2010 and 2015) and forecasts (2020 and 2025) by product (e.g., transportation refrigeration systems, refrigerators and freezers, beverage refrigeration equipment, display cases, ice machines, cryogenic equipment, liquid chillers, refrigerated vending machines) and market (e.g., foodservice, food and beverage retail, food and beverage distribution, food and beverage production).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 43 industry players, including United Technologies, Ingersoll-Rand, and Dover.
