Indian Cold Chain Market Growth

Cold chain logistics refers to a temperature-controlled supply chain, involving a series of refrigerated production, storage, and distribution activities. It also includes equipment that helps to maintain the desired temperature range, thus ensuring preservation and extension of the shelf life of various temperature-sensitive products.

 

The Indian cold chain market development is influenced by the growing demand for processed food products and the growth of the retail and e-commerce industry in the region. One of the biggest factors which will aid market growth over the forecast period is the growth of the organised food retail sector in the region.

 

Currently, the country is the largest producer of milk and the second-largest producer of fruits and vegetables. The region is also experiencing substantial production of marine, meat, and poultry products. As most of these products are perishable and temperature-sensitive, they require a specific temperature for storage and transportation. This is generating the demand for and leading to the establishment of large cold chain facilities in the region.
