Press Release

Global Refrigerator Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5.7% During 2024-2032, Driven by the Rising Preference for Energy-Efficient Refrigerators

Global Refrigerator Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Refrigerator Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of about USD 126.30 billion in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of around USD 207.94 billion by 2032.

The Asia Pacific accounts for a major market share as it is the hub of home appliance manufacturers such as LG Electronics, Inc., Panasonic Corporation, and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. The growing population and a rise in the working population expand the food service industry, which, in turn, drives the demand for commercial refrigerators.


The growing demand for home appliance items due to the region's increasing infrastructural development activities is favouring the refrigerator market demand in the Asia Pacific. Further important drivers aiding the market expansion in the Asia Pacific include the growing number of households, rising disposable income, rapid urbanisation, and a strong desire for smart appliances to replace traditional appliances. The expanding hospitality and tourism sectors in countries like Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia further contribute to a surge in the demand for refrigerators.


Key players are increasingly attempting to enhance the sustainability profile of refrigerators amid rising environmental concerns. For instance, in September 2023, LG Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: LPL) received International Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certification for its premium refrigerators (600-litre models) MF-B6**, F62*****B, and M62******2(S). EPD certification helps consumers make more environmentally conscious decisions by giving them clear, reliable information about a product's impact on the environment.


Due to its sophisticated Inverter Linear CompressorTM, vacuum insulation, and optimised refrigeration cycle, the energy-efficient refrigerator lowers energy usage. LG believes that consumers seeking to reduce their home's energy use will benefit with the product's efficiency and newly granted EPD certification.
