Report Description

Global Frozen Food Market was valued at US$ 232.42 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to reach US$ 320.06 billion by 2026 displaying an elevated CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period (2020-2026). Frozen Foods have increasingly become an integral part of daily diets among people. Busy lifestyles and increasing working population have driven the food manufacturing industry to produce new products in the form of frozen foods to meet the surging demand for ready to eat food items. Rising demand for convenience and Ready-to-Eat (RTE) food products is a major growth driving factor for the global frozen foods market. The longer shelf life of frozen foods without decay is also boosting its demand across the globe. In addition, the easy availability of these foods in different types has also catalyzed the demand further. The rising population coupled with increasing disposable income levels, especially in the emerging regions such as the Asia Pacific, has impacted positively on the overall product demand. To add on, cold chain infrastructure also plays a pivotal role in driving the frozen food market, as it helps to transport products at both the domestic and international levels. The global demand for fresh and processed fruits & vegetables has tremendously surged, as the consumption habits of the urban population have changed dramatically. This demand is fulfilled using cold chain logistics to maintain the temperature and quality of frozen food products. The rise in the export and import of frozen food has spurred accredited to the strong global cold chain services available in developed economies. According to the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW), a core partner of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), it has been estimated that the global capacity of refrigerated warehouses increased to 616 million cubic meters (m3) in 2018, from 552 million cubic meters (m3) in 2014.
