Commercial Refrigeration Equipment

As Quoted In Contracting Business

Growth in capital investment and nonresidential construction expenditures, plus food industry efforts to reduce operating costs, will benefit US commercial refrigeration equipment demand.

US demand to grow 4.6% per year through 2016

US demand for commercial refrigeration equipment is forecast to rise 4.6 percent per year to $9.4 billion in 2016. Growth will result from improvements in capital investment and nonresidential construction expenditures. A positive outlook for the broader US economy will also encourage end users such as retailers and fleet operators to both expand existing operations and replace aging equipment. Food industry efforts to reduce operating costs, a byproduct of narrow profit margins, will create opportunities for suppliers of energy efficient equipment.

Aftermarket sales to remain dominant

Aftermarket sales of commercial refrigeration equipment, which consist of both repairs and products purchased to replace existing equipment, accounted for 73 percent of demand in 2011 and will continue to comprise the majority of demand. Food and beverage distribution is expected to post the fastest growth of any commercial refrigeration equipment market through 2016, rising at a yearly rate of 5.9 percent. Foodservice will remain the largest market for commercial refrigeration equipment, as Americans continue to spend around half of their food budgets outside the home. Food production will continue to benefit from increased trade in food and beverages, as well as from expansions and renovations of food production facilities. Gains in the retail market will come from a rising number of food stores. Furthermore, the average amount of floor space at food retail establishments will similarly increase, creating added floor space for commercial refrigeration equipment.

Transportation refrigeration to remain largest equipment type

Transportation refrigeration equipment will remain the largest commercial refrigeration equipment type, benefiting from the positive outlook for capital investment. In addition, product innovations such as hybrid electric systems and products that utilize natural refrigerants like carbon dioxide will stimulate sales. Ice machines will also record above average growth due to increased construction of hotels and motels, which are major end users of this equipment. Additionally, ice machines will benefit from the rising number of foodservice establishments and from technical innovations like remote monitoring.

Growth in shipments to lag US demand gains

Shipments of commercial refrigeration equipment from US facilities are forecast to grow 4.0 percent per annum through 2016 to $8.6 billion. Competition from imports in both domestic and overseas markets will cause growth in shipments to lag demand gains. The US has become a net importer of commercial refrigeration equipment, as many of the leading manufacturers have moved production facilities overseas to reduce labor costs.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $7.5 billion US commercial refrigeration equipment industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market (e.g., foodservice, food and beverage retail, food and beverage distribution, food and beverage production) and product (e.g., transportation refrigeration systems, refrigerators and freezers, beverage refrigeration equipment, display cases, ice machines, refrigerated vending machines).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry players, including United Technologies, Ingersoll-Rand and Manitowoc.
