The recession encouraged key downstream markets for the Refrigeration Equipment Wholesaling industry to delay or abandon purchases of industry products because demand for their own products and services fell as consumer spending and industry production plummeted. The industry rebounded in 2010 but growth is expected to slow in the coming years. Supermarkets, the largest market for industry equipment, are expected to have only slight revenue gains.
Wholesalers in this industry distribute commercial refrigeration equipment, including beverage coolers, cold storage machinery, refrigerator compressors, condensing units, refrigerated display cases and drinking fountains. This industry excludes the wholesaling of residential refrigeration equipment. Household refrigerators and air conditioners are not included. Distributors of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment are also excluded for this industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
