Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABLE PRODUCTS, American Panel, Amerikooler, Arctic Walk In Cooler & Freezers, Beverage-Air, Delfield, Emerson Electric, FRIGINOX, Haier, Honeywell, Hussmann, Imbera Foodservice, Imperial Manufacturing, Intertek, Panasonic, Precision Refrigeration, SRC Refrigeration, and Victory Refrigeration.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing number of M&A. In the present market scenario, the services provided by the top vendors are being consolidated through M&A. These M&A are executed by a huge number of new technology-enabled entrants. The commercial walk-in refrigerator market comprises an array of international and regional vendors.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is need to control bacterial growth and extend shelf life of food. Contamination of food affects the safety and quality of the product. It is the most common reason for food poisoning. It can result in products being discarded, which could affect foodservice restaurants, hotels, and other end-users in terms of their turnovers. Food items such as meat, fish, and poultry tend to get infected with bacteria, such as Escherichia coli (E. Coli) and Salmonella when not stored properly, causing food contamination.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is compressor failure. Customers face problems with the maintenance of compressor pressure and also with the failure of the compressor. This causes huge losses of the products that are stored in the walk-in refrigerator. These problems can be avoided by observing the equipment and taking corrective action.
