Laboratory Refrigerators and Ovens: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 30, 2010
Refrigeration has long been a significant part of myriad clinical and biological research applications. Refrigerators and freezers constitute the most widely used appliance in laboratories, and are available in a range of sizes, shapes, and temperature ranges. Refrigerators find increasing use in laboratories handling blood, blood products, DNA, enzymes, and tissue samples. Increased awareness about energy savings is increasing the demand for energy efficient laboratory refrigerators. Developing energy efficient units could result in lifecycle energy cost savings of an estimated $1500 and $2500 for laboratory refrigerators and freezers, respectively. With no set standards for laboratory refrigerators and freezers currently in place, several companies are working with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to establish a set of Energy Star industry standards.
The US constitutes the largest regional market for laboratory refrigerators and ovens, as stated by the new market research report on Laboratory Refrigerators and Ovens. Nevertheless, growth is expected to mainly emanate from Asia-Pacific, which is forecast to grow at a CAGR of more than 3.0% over the analysis period. Laboratory refrigerators represents the largest segment of the global market. Key trend in refrigeration is the cold storage of vaccines, specifically H1N1 vaccines that requires storage within a temperature range of 35ºF to 46ºF. Within refrigerators, general-purpose laboratory refrigerators represent a major sub-segment, while Sub-zero refrigerators is the fastest growing segment. The Laboratory freezers market is, however, dominated by the general-purpose lab freezers, accounting for more than 55% of the global market. General-purpose laboratory ovens also dominate the laboratory ovens market, accounting for a major share of the overall market.
Cryogenic products represent a critical solution for preserving samples at ultra low temperatures. The cryogenics industry offers mechanical ultra-low temperature freezers, dewars and storage containers in different shapes, sizes, and configuration. Ultra-Low Freezers are capable of bringing down temperatures from –18 degree centigrade to an ultra-low –86 degrees centigrade and are the most preferred ones in biomedical laboratories. These units are competing with liquid nitrogen storage units (the conventional cryopreservers) that are used in storing bone marrow, human embryos, and sperms.
