Refrigerated Furniture Market in Europe is on a Steady Rise

The market for refrigerated cabinets in Europe’s top six markets (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Belgium & Netherlands, Poland) will increase by 3,3% this year. By 2021, the refrigeration market will see moderate growth of 2,9% per year continuing it’s steady rise as more markets try to reduce their emissions by investing in new refrigerated cabinets.

Best Growth Registered in Italy

The total market value in the examined markets was 1.156 billion euros in 2017. The biggest market is Germany with a value of € 275,8 million. In terms of growth potential, Interconnection expects Italy to make big steps forward with average growth of 4,0% annually until 2021. The reason for this is the recovering economy and higher demand for replacement of outdated refrigeration cabinets, which was often postponed due to the political and economic crisis. In France, on the other hand, economic stagnation has begun. Even the increase in the number of new grocery stores, the market is advancing just a mild 1,4%.

Surprising Negative Performance of the Polish Market 

Although Poland shines with good macroeconomic indicators, the countrys market for refrigerated cabinets reported negative growth. Stagnating investment in new commercial buildings and a renovation have created problems for the refrigeration market. While non-residential construction is not getting under way in Poland, this area has grown in Belgium and the Netherlands. In the next few years, the growth in the later countries will be 2,5% per year. The UK, in turn, is struggling with Brexit, which particularly badly affected by the replacement market. Therefore, growth will be only 0,4% in volume by 2021.

Remote Gaining Shares

The trend in Europe is moving strongly towards remote refrigeration cabinets. This segment has a share of 58,4% and stable growth (+ 3,3%), while plug-in refrigerating cabinets only achieved a weak growth (+ 0,4%) in 2017. This trend will continue in the future, as the number of large discount grocery stores increase. This sector usually chooses the remote cabinet version, explains Sasa Spiridonov, the author of the study. Convection cooling accounts for 73,3% of the total market compared to gravity cooling (26,7%). The segment of refrigerating cabinets with temperatures above 0°C accounts for 66,6%, followed by freezer cabinets (27,3%) and reversible cabinets (include both ranges – negative and positive temperatures) at 6,1%. The market is dominated by the big companies. In Italy alone, Epta, Arneg, ISA and De Rigo alone account for more than a third (34,3%) of the total market.
