Insights on the Ice Maker Global Market to 2026 - by Product Type, End-use Sector and Region

·6-min read

Dublin, May 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Ice Maker Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global ice maker market reached a value of US$ 4.8 Billion in 2020. An ice maker, also known as an ice generator or ice machine, is an appliance that is used for producing ice in both the residential and commercial sectors. It is manufactured using various components, which include motors, compressors, condensers, evaporators, throttle valves and heating elements. Among these, the compressor cold compresses the low-pressure vapor to high-pressure vapor and directs it to the condenser. The condenser helps in condensing the high-pressure vapor into the high-pressure liquid, which is then drained out through the throttle valve. The liquid is then sent towards the evaporator wherein heat exchange takes place and results in the formation of ice.

One of the significant factors catalyzing the market growth include the rising demand for ice in the healthcare sector for storing organs and aiding rehabilitation procedures. Besides this, ice makers are also utilized in microbiology, biochemistry, biotechnology and genetic engineering laboratories to store biological samples and assist the transportation of these samples to other facilities. The growing popularity of cryotherapy (cold therapy) is further impelling the market growth. Additionally, there is an increase in the demand for the product in the food and beverage (F&B) industry, owing to the burgeoning sales of processed foods and inflating income levels of the individuals. This escalation in demand can also be accredited to the easy availability of ice makers in different sizes, depending on the requirements of the consumers. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global ice maker market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
