Transport reefer system demand expected to climb through 2022

May 14, 2018
Discover why demand for transportation refrigeration systems is projected to increase 4.2% per year through 2022.

Demand for transportation refrigeration systems is projected to increase 4.2% per year through 2022 to $2.7 billion, according to a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

The study, Commercial Refrigeration Equipment in the US, 14th Edition, finds that growth opportunities will stem largely from the ongoing need for refrigerated transport of food and beverages. Most demand for transportation refrigeration systems in the United States is met by domestic production. However, competition from imports has increased in recent years driven by rising imports from Mexico and China due to lower production costs.

Transportation refrigeration systems are among the most expensive types of commercial refrigeration equipment, and some manufacturing capacity has been relocated to help curb production costs.

Kyle Peters, Capital Goods project director, said, “Transportation refrigeration systems will outpace all other commercial refrigeration product segments.” Demand for commercial refrigeration equipment in the US is projected to rise 2.9% per year through 2022.
