Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as infectious diseases is a growing demand for medical refrigerators market. Biological products are protected from temperature excursions due to power outages, better airflow is promoted, precise temperature and alarm systems are monitored, and a reliable cold-chain for biologics is enabled. They also can use digital locks to restrict access to only authorized employees. Hospitals, pharmacies, clinics, and diagnostic centers are increasing their demand for safe blood and blood derivatives storage, driving the medical and lab refrigerators market worldwide.

Also, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1.6 Mn people have cancer and related ailments, and the cost of care is anticipated to rise to USD 174 Bn by 2020. As a result, the demand for blood transfusions, biological products, and DNA-based medications is increasing as the number of cases of various chronic disorders rises. Hypovolemic/hemorrhagic shock can also be treated with blood transfusion. The demand for blood products has risen as the number of hematological disorders and traumatic and road accidents have increased.
