The food processing business is a pillar of the world economy, with a projected value of USD 535 billion by 2025-26. USA, China, Germany , Netherlands and Japan are few of the large markets of global processed food industry.

In the USA over 70% of perishable food gets refrigerated, while in India, it is less than 4% . The current level of food processing in India is 10 per cent, and contributes 12.8 per cent to the Indian GDP.

Indian government approved a new PLI scheme for the food processing sector, with a budget outlay of US$1.46 billion. Improved Cold Chain facilities will aid in recouping the present one-third loss of perishable goods.

India is the world’s third largest producer of pharmaceuticals by volume. The pharmaceutical industry, particularly biopharma, is largely reliant on the cold chain.

The medical refrigerators market is projected to grow from USD 3.3 billion in 2019 to USD 4.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2019 to 2024.

Refrigeration systems are essential to process control and environmental management in pharmaceutical manufacturing and storage given the extremely high value of pharmaceutical raw materials, intermediates and finished products.
