Overview of the global packaged refrigeration market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global packaged refrigeration market to grow steadily at a CAGR of above 4% by 2021. One of the major drivers responsible for the growth of this market is the rise in demand for frozen food. Frozen food is a major application of commercially packaged refrigeration systems. The increasing demand for frozen food will directly impact the demand for packaged systems. The major reason for the growth of the frozen food market is the changing lifestyle and dynamics of the society. The rising demand for frozen food prompts supermarkets and other retail outlets to store these products, thereby increasing the refrigeration requirement. Also, the increase in retail outlets across the globe will augment growth in the global packaged refrigeration market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the increasing pressure requirements for packaged refrigeration components. It is observed that there is a significant consumer preference of packaged refrigeration system components that can handle higher pressure conditions. This is to facilitate the use of higher efficiency systems, such as the transcritical CO2 systems. Also, as the trend is moving toward more eco-friendly and higher efficiency systems, such as CO2 systems and transcritical CO2 systems, the need for higher pressure components will rise. Moreover, the use of higher pressure systems will also eliminate the need for backup systems. These advantages will, in turn, drive growth in the global packaged refrigeration market during the forecast period.

Overview of the global industrial shredder machine market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global industrial shredder machine market to grow at a slow pace and will post a CAGR of around 1% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in the production of light vehicles. The light vehicle market holds immense growth potential in terms of market penetration in the global market. The increase in the adoption of light vehicles will induce significant growth in the shredder machines market. Also, there has been an increasing focus on the pollution level, from commercial vehicles, cars, and heavy transport vehicles, in countries across the globe. This has compelled governments in every major country, where pollution levels are high, to implement policies and regulations. Few of these policies also focus on scrapping age-old cars that are responsible for emitting pollutants from exhausts. This, in turn, will propel the growth of the global industrial shredder machine market during the forecast period. 

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the growth in the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). It has been observed that there is a growing interest in electric vehicles (EVs) by automotive manufacturers across the globe. Also, government efforts to reducing dependencies on petroleum will further propel the growth of EVs globally. This increase in adoption of EVs will eventually augment growth in the global industrial shredder machine market in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global industrial shredder machine market is highly fragmented due to the presence of several international and regional

Overview of the global blow molding machinery market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global blow molding machinery market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 3% by 2021. One of the major drivers for the growth of this market is the exponential growth of the e-commerce industry across the globe. With an increasing number of e-commerce companies, the need for packaging is on the rise, propelling the demand for packaging machinery. E-retail is expected to become a primary sales channel for consumer goods and pharmaceutical products in the coming years. This rise in e-commerce will positively stimulate the blow molding machinery market. Moreover, it is anticipated that the demand for white-top corrugated board and micro-flute packaging will increase in the coming years, this is due to their high flexural strength and high durability. The rising customer requirement for faster delivery has boosted demand for high-efficiency packaging materials, this, in turn, will augment the growth of the global blow molding machinery market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the use of 3D printers in plastic blow molding. This technique uncouples the two-step process of printing and fusing the structures, making the blow molding process simpler and more energy efficient. Also, this technique uses liquid ink made from metal powder (or a mixture of metal powders and solvents). The use of a 3D printer in custom plastic molding gives the manufacturer a quicker layout/prototype when compared with the molding of the actual product. Consequently, the adoption of this technique may affect the global blow molding machinery market in the coming years.

Overview of the global turbine inlet cooling systems market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global turbine inlet cooling systems market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 4% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the reduction in the number of coal-based power plants.  Owing to the increase in concerns about environmental protection and the goal of clean power has been the main reasons for the closing of power plants in several countries across the globe. Also, in several countries, the consumption of natural gas as a fuel, instead of coal, for power generation is on the rise. For instance, in the UK, the major contribution to power generation is from natural gas instead of coal. This shift towards natural gas has significantly reduced the consumption of coal across the globe. Another reason for the decrease in demand for coal is the shutdown of many coal power plants with respect to environmental concerns. This reduction in the number of coal-based power plants will ensure the construction of new gas-fired power plants, which in turn will increase the demand for gas turbines and further drive the turbine inlet cooling systems market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the rise in distributed power generation. Power generation is undergoing a transformation from centralized systems to integrated networks. This is due to the growing reliance on distributed power generation systems. Distributed power technologies are characterized by high flexibility, and are suited for a wide range of applications such as electric power, propulsion, and mechanical power. Distributed power technologies can operate in a standalone mode as well as work in an integrated
