Growth in E-Commerce Grocery Sales is Boosting US Cold Storage Market Growth

According to our latest market study on "US Cold Storage Market Forecast to 2030 – Country Analysis – by Application, Temperature Type and Warehouse Type," the US cold storage market size is expected to grow from US$ 40,972.22 million in 2022 to US$ 148,623.44 million by 2030; it is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17.5% from 2022 to 2030.

The rising e-commerce grocery sales across the US are supporting the US cold storage market growth. In 2021, the total e-commerce grocery sales in the US accounted for ~13% of the e-commerce sector, which is further expected to surpass a share of ~22% by 2025. The COVID-19 pandemic scenario significantly changed the shopping behavior of consumers, resulting in a massive shift toward online shopping while requiring grocery items to be home-delivered. Such factors are generating the need for cold storage facilities, as the demand for shortening the delivery time of grocery products is witnessing rapid growth. Moreover, the rise in the number of private cold storage warehouses is another major factor supporting the growth of e-commerce grocery sales across the US, which is further driving the US cold storage market growth.

In terms of temperature type, the cold storage market is bifurcated into chilled and frozen. The frozen segment is anticipated to hold a significant US cold storage market share by 2030. A cold storage, or freezer warehouse, maintains specific temperatures using a complex refrigeration system. Coolant, compressor, separator, condenser, receiver, and evaporator are major components of cold storage facilities. The primary objective of cold storage is to store temperature-sensitive goods, including perishable products, such as frozen foods, dairy items, meat and seafood, and pharmaceutical products. This helps maintain their quality and extend product shelf life. Chilled storage facilities primarily cater to preserving dairy products such as milk, fresh cream, curd, milk-based beverages, cheese, processed cream, and medicines (including tablets). On the other hand, frozen storage facilities help preserve frozen meat, processed food, fish, seafood, chemicals, and pharmaceutical products—such as vaccines.

Frozen warehouses or freezer warehouses are primarily operational in sub-zero temperatures, usually between -18°C and -25°C. These facilities are designed and developed to store frozen foods, such as seafood, meats, and frozen desserts. The products that must be kept at low temperatures to avoid bacterial growth and maintain product integrity are suitable for frozen warehouses. Frozen storage is a broadly used method for expanding the shelf life of eventually refrigerated food products. Freezer warehouses must be constructed from sandwich panels—the insulating element that avoids temperature leaks to the outside. The flooring of the freezer warehouse floors should be insulated to prevent condensation. A refrigerated warehouse is also known as a cold storage warehouse or chill store. These facilities primarily maintain a controlled temperature, normally between 2° and 8°, to save the quality of perishable products. Chilled warehouses are generally used for storing fresh produce products such as dairy products and other delicate or perishable products that require a chilled but not frozen environment to maintain their quality. Chilled storage helps in reducing rotting, sprouting, and insect damage. Reefer containers, ships, and trucks are usually equipped with chilled storage facilities for better management of products at the time of transportation as per supply chain requirements. Thus, all these factors are positively contributing to the growing US cold storage market size.

The scope of the US cold storage market report focuses on the US. As per the Department of Agriculture, in June 2022, the US registered 3.73 billion cubic feet of gross refrigerated warehouse capacity. Among these, public storage accounted for 72%, with 517 warehouses, and private and semi-private facilities listed 387 warehouses.

Tobin Scientific, United States Cold Storage, Lineage Logistics, Agro Merchant Group LLC, Wabash National Corporation, and Americold Logistics, Inc. are a few of the major cold storage and logistic companies operating in the US.
