Demand for commercial refrigerators and freezers has generally increased over the past five years. This has been driven by steady demand from supermarkets and convenience stores, as a large number of such retailers were opened or refurbished during these years. Food manufacturers and other final users, such as restaurants, cafes, hotels and clubs, also contributed to higher demand for industry goods. However, lower demand in some years resulted from client industries reducing expansion activities and increased competing import levels.
Companies in the industry manufacture commercial refrigerators and freezers, including walk-in cabinet coolers and freezers. Although these products are primarily used in the restaurant, food manufacturing and retail sectors, they can also be used for warehousing and other applications.
