Display Cases

This study analyzes the United States market for display cases, which include normal temperature (which encompass multiple shelf cases with glass doors used to store beverage cans and bottles) and low temperature types available in open or closed configurations.

Markets included are:

  • food and beverage retail establishments, including convenience stores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets, as well as farmers’ markets, produce markets, and other specialty food shops
  • foodservice, or the service of food to paying or nonpaying customers by restaurants and bars, airlines, company cafeterias and canteens, daycare facilities, food trucks, government facilities and military sites, institutional establishments, lodging and hospitality establishments, and sports and recreation venues

For the purposes of this study, “food” is occasionally used to refer to both food and beverages.

How will the COVID-19 coronavirus impact the global economy? The Freedonia Group is tracking recent developments and analyzing their impact in an easy to follow Economic Impact Tracker.

Excluded from the scope of this study are:

  • air conditioning systems
  • all refrigeration equipment designed for residential use
  • revenues generated from service and maintenance activities on display cases
  • containers that house food and beverage products for transport
  • equipment used in liquid natural gas facilities, as the capacity of these products exceeds the defined size of commercial refrigeration equipment

Demand for display cases is presented in US dollars at the manufacturers’ level. Unit estimates are also provided. Historical data for 2009, 2014, and 2019 and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 are presented in current dollars (which are not adjusted to account for inflation).
