San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
Visibility of a product is essential for the sale of goods, illustrating the importance of refrigerated display cabinets in food retailing. Refrigerated cabinets are mostly used in supermarkets, hypermarkets and grocery shops, to preserve, store, transport, and display temperature-sensitive products. Increasing number of hotels, restaurants, take-aways, and non-traditional outlets such as kiosks, gas stations, will spur demand for refrigeration equipment such as freezers, coolers, and beverage refrigeration equipment.
There is an increasing trend towards new equipment and technology as global customers are increasingly seeking out refrigeration products that improve food safety, enhance performance, conserve energy, and support environmental goals. Soft market conditions have also drawn increased attention towards the need for utilizing energy more efficiently and conserving energy by way of streamlining food storage and display methods. Additionally, the retail and convenience sectors are transforming their menus to add more gourmet on-the-go foodservice thus requiring new equipment that extend shelf life and enhance product appeal. Demand for Refrigerated Display Cabinets will benefit from rising standards of living, growing middle class, rollout of new retail food outlets across the world, and retailers' ongoing need to expand or renovate existing facilities.

Although challenged by global slowdown, growth will be encouraged by this industry's optimistic long-term trends.
In order to survive in the changing economy, avoid a price war and create more value, manufacturers planned energy-efficient solutions, such as the launch of new products with real added value. Also, many retailers will trash out older refrigeration equipments in favor of newer models and more innovative products. This is particularly the case where high-technology products have such functions that make them unique and exclusive, but are still sold at affordable prices. Consequently, replacement sales, which traditionally represented a minuscule percentage of total equipment demand, are expected to drive overall industry growth.
