North America Cold Storage Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Warehouse (Private & Semi Private, Public), By Construction, By Temperature (Chilled, Frozen), By Application, And Segment Forecasts, 2021 - 2028

North America Cold Storage Market Growth Growth & Growth & Trends

The North America cold storage market size is expected to reach USD 86.48 Billion by 2028, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2021 to 2028. Technological advancements in cold storage warehouses are stimulating the growth of the market. Increasing automation is changing the conventional warehouse operations, enabling companies to maximize their output. Growing penetration of robotics applications, automated material handling equipment, and high-speed conveyor systems help in achieving the order accuracy.

Rising awareness concerning the low ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants to tackle environmental and social facets along with increasing demand for energy-efficient natural refrigerants are the key factors driving the market. Inorganic refrigerants such as ammonia, CO2, and hydrocarbon-based refrigerants are the most popular natural refrigerants that are being increasingly preferred by end users for their energy efficiency, low cost, and low GDP & ODP.

High running costs, capital investment, and scalability of different picking methods are the key factors restraining the market over the projected period. Additionally, advanced automation, software system, and high-tech advancements in tracking systems and warehousing have led to high requirements for skilled labor. Dearth of skilled labor can restrict the market from realizing its utmost potential.

Compared to other revenue-generation streams for real-estate firms, the North America cold storage construction market is smaller in size. From the owner’s perspective, potential developers and real-estate firms may want to consider investing in cold storage facilities owing to their growing population in the region. Furthermore, there will be a bidding war among investors to acquire Class A (high-quality or newly-constructed building located in central business areas and draws the highest rent) traditional warehouse space in the U.S. and Canada. To avoid such situation, real-estate firms can invest in developing a class B (older than class A buildings and draws less rent compared to class A) warehouse as the cold storage facility.

Key companies operating in the market are Lineage Logistics; Americold Logistics LLC; Burris Logistics, Inc.; Cloverleaf Cold Storage Company; and VersaCold Logistics Services. In addition to cold storage services, market players are providing value-added activities such as food processing and harvesting to increase the product life of fresh foods.
