Growth of the cold-storage industry

Blast chillers help reduce food waste by fast cooling newly cooked/baked food, extending its shelf life and keeping it safe for later use. Food waste, particularly perishables such as meat, dairy, fruits, and vegetables, causes significant economic losses for food enterprises. Lack of proper refrigeration and freezing infrastructure has significantly contributed to food waste; thus, retailers are increasingly adopting blast chillers to decrease perishable waste. Supermarkets employ blast chillers to cool meat, prepared meals, and baked products. Reducing waste increases profitability and promotes sustainability, as such encouraging blast chiller use. Blast Chillers Market Size is projected to reach $2,392.8 million from 2023 to 2032.

Blast Chillers Market by Capacity

Growth in food service sector in developed/developing regions creates an opportunity for cold storage chain driving the market growth. The food service sector comprises two major segments, commercial and non-commercial subsectors. The Canada commercial food service sub-sector accounted for $62 billion, representing 82% of total food service sales in 2022, which is likely to have a positive impact on the blast chillers market for commercial usage. Low blast chiller penetration, along with increased consumer awareness of food safety and quality in the North America, Europe, and other regions, creates attractive opportunities to install blast chillers. Companies are creating low-cost blast chillers to target the mass blast chillers Market and local production contributes to reduced prices.

Strict Statutory Requirement

Governments and regulatory bodies globally have introduced strict statutory requirements that are an important driver for the blast chiller market. These regulations mandate particular standards for food safety, storage as well as handling especially in industries such as food processing, catering and hospitality where maintenance of quality and safety of perishable goods is essential. Examples of these regulations include Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in the U.S., as well as similar frameworks in Europe and other regions. These frameworks necessitate that businesses promptly lower the temperature of cooked foods to prevent microbial growth and improve food safety. Blast chillers comply with these demands by their ability to swiftly lower food temperatures, making them vital for compliance as they directly respond to these regulation needs. Thus, Firms must invest in advanced blast chiller technologies to meet these stringent regulations, thus propelling the Blast Chillers Market demand.

Blast Chillers Market by Application

In addition, there is a growing focus on food safety and public health globally, thus requiring the need to adhere to such stringent statutory requirements. With rise in awareness on the danger of foodborne illness and contamination, consumers are demanding better standards of safety in food, causing firms to adopt good methods of handling food as well as storing it. This change is more significant in certain areas including healthcare where population are highly vulnerable from such pathogens exist. Blast chillers play a vital role in swiftly cooling food and maintaining precise temperature control, thereby mitigating the risks associated with foodborne pathogens. This aligns with both regulatory mandates and consumer expectations. As a result, the adoption of blast chillers is becoming more widespread, not only as a regulatory compliance measure but also as a proactive approach to enhancing food safety standards. This dual pressure from regulatory bodies and consumer demand reinforces the critical role of blast chillers in modern food safety practices, further driving their market growth. Such factors are expected to drive the growth of blast chillers market and increse significant Blast Chillers Market Share during forecasted period.

Technology advancement in blast chillers

The integration of smart touchscreen controllers in blast chiller machines, enabling users to operate all functions remotely, has significantly advanced the industry and boosted demand within the blast chillers market. The latest models of blast chillers come with smart and automatic defrost functions, which ensure optimal consumption of energy and maximum performance, owing to effective probe settings. The machines are also inbuilt with safety sensors that stop the fan motor in case of any disruption during the chilling or freezing cycles. These latest technologies are attracting an increasing number of prospective customers of blast chillers industry. To upgrade cooling systems of blast chillers there are wide range of installation units available including an Industrial Air Chiller, a Modular Chiller, several Screw Chillers, and Water Chillers, while also considering the benefits of Absorption Chillers and HVAC Chillers for energy efficiency.

For instance, in May 2021, Welbilt, Inc., a major supplier of commercial foodservice equipment, announced its exclusive distribution partnership with Nuovair, an Italian company specializing in high-quality roll-in blast chillers. These chillers incorporate advanced blast freezing technology, extending shelf life by three times, and preserving food quality, ensuring superior taste and texture.
