Refrigerated Transport – Overview

Refrigerated transportation, commonly referred to as reefer freight, involves the conveyance of temperature-sensitive products like food items and pharmaceuticals. Specialized vehicles equipped with built-in refrigeration systems maintain a controlled temperature to prevent the deterioration and loss of value of these products during transport. This method is not limited to food but is also crucial for transporting other delicate items such as medical products and pharmaceuticals.

India Refrigerated Transport Market

Growth Drivers

Increasing Demand for Frozen Products

The evolving landscape of frozen food consumption is influenced by various factors such as the global increase in female employment, the impact of pandemics, and changing lifestyles, including the prevalence of work-from-home practices. Expected growth in frozen food sales presents expansion opportunities for companies in the refrigerated transport market, particularly in India. Frozen products, with an extended shelf life, become preferable amid changing climatic conditions affecting crop productivity. Food producers strive to provide affordable and accessible frozen options, addressing both consumer preferences and reducing food loss. The demand for frozen foods is further propelled by the growth of service industries, including fast food chains, quick-service restaurants, and hypermarkets.

Restraints

High Initial Investment

The India Refrigerated Transport Market faces a growth restraint due to the high initial investment required for establishing refrigerated transport infrastructure. The significant upfront costs associated with acquiring temperature-controlled vehicles and installing refrigeration systems pose challenges for market entry and expansion. This financial barrier limits the participation of potential stakeholders and hinders the overall growth of refrigerated transport market in India.

Impact of COVID-19 on India Refrigerated Transport Market

COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the India Refrigerated Transport Market. The stringent lockdown measures implemented to curb the virus's spread resulted in a decreased need for refrigerated transportation services. Key sectors like food and pharmaceuticals, which heavily rely on refrigerated trucks, experienced supply chain interruptions, adversely affecting the market. Furthermore, the temporary closure of hospitality establishments, including hotels, restaurants, and catering services, contributed to a decline in the demand for refrigerated transportation. Despite these challenges, as restrictions gradually lift and economic activities resume, the market is poised for recovery, driven by an upswing in demand for secure and efficient cold chain logistics in the post-pandemic period.
