Sep 22, 2022

A new report from Guidehouse Insights analyzes the sustainable refrigeration market globally.

Considering that refrigeration consumes more than 50% of supermarket energy, sustainable solutions in the commercial refrigeration industry, such as those promoting high efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, offer substantial potential for market growth. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, the global market revenue for high-efficiency commercial refrigeration equipment is expected to grow from $10.9 billion in 2022 to $28.7 billion in 2031, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4%.

Global warming is not just a one-industry issue, so collaborating to build teams across industry, government, and finance is essential for achieving decarbonization,” says Young Hoon Kim, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “Revenue for equipment used in sustainable solutions is growing and there are many options for retailers and manufacturers to grasp this expanding market opportunity and continuously develop innovative and sustainable solutions.”

Decarbonization is driving the sustainable refrigeration market; policies support the adoption of low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and programs encourage high efficiency systems. Additionally, major retailers are investing in sustainable solutions to demonstrate environment, social, and governance responsibility. As the technology continues to advance, financing options have made sustainable refrigeration in the commercial sector more affordable, according to the report.
