San Francisco, Calif., USA, May 29 2023 — /EPR Network/ —

Retail Cooler Industry Overview

The global retail cooler market size was valued at USD 1.50 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% from 2022 to 2030. A rise in the popularity of outdoor recreational activities such as off-roading and hiking among travelers is driving the market. In addition, improved manufacturing technologies for lightweight chillers that can keep ice for an extended period will contribute to market expansion over the foreseeable future. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the growth of the market. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, customers are willing to spend more time in nature through activities such as hiking, camping, fishing, boating, and cycling, which is boosting the market demand for retail coolers. For instance, according to Outdoor Industry Association, Americans took up new activities such as hiking, walking, and running during the COVID-19 period.

Moreover, polystyrene coolers are perceived negatively as most products made from the material are dumped in landfills. Polystyrene materials also occupy a disproportionate amount of space by volume in a landfill on account of their bulky nature. Polystyrene coolers take approximately 500 years to decompose completely. Polystyrene is built of multiple units of styrene, which is believed to be carcinogenic by the Department of Health and Human Services and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Additionally, the rising number of hypermarkets, specialty food stores, and supermarkets across the globe has significantly boosted the adoption of retail coolers. According to The Food Institute, Costco is expected to open around 22 new warehouses each year, with 75% of them located in the U.S. The retailer also plans to open three new stores in Bradenton, Florida; Bismarck, North Dakota; and Plainfield, Illinois. Similarly, Walmart invested billions in new stores and improvements throughout 2019.

An increasing number of companies are striving for innovation in the sustainable space, particularly when it comes to choosing materials. For instance, NIKU Farms, a Toronto-based meat delivery service, opted for a new biodegradable and compostable packaging material from KTM Industries for its insulated coolers in 2019. NIKU became the first meat delivery service company to use KTM’s Green Cell Foam in Canada for its farm-to-door meat subscription boxes.
