The cold chain industry maintains refrigerated warehouses at strategic locations and provides refrigerated transport solutions. Cold chains are necessary when dealing with temperature sensitive products and their logistics. One can increase the shelf life of the product by maintaining the bio-chemical and physical properties using cold chain. It also stores and helps maintain supply of seasonal products. The cold chain industry serves as a direct link between the retail industry and the producers, which include farmers, fishermen, and the dairy industry.
Investment in the cold chain industry increased after the 2010 global slowdown, North America being the largest market. The need of refrigerated solutions for numerous daily products, growth in retail outlets and favorable government policies are the main market drivers. However, lack of standardization and high operational and infrastructure costs may restrict market growth. Nevertheless, increased government initiatives to reduce post-harvest and food losses and increased limit of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the developing countries provide immense opportunities to the market.
