India Refrigerator Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2029

According to TechSci Research report, “India Refrigerator Market – Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2018-2028F” The Indian refrigerator market is forecast to grow at an impressive CAGR of around 11.62% in the forecast period due to rapidly surging demand from the consumer durables industry. In India, the market’s growth is stimulated by the rising urbanization, the rising disposable income of consumers, and the technological advancements contributing to increased convenience at low prices. The demand for refrigerators in the projected period is likely to register sustainable growth due to the increasing working population and preference for modernity in living standards.

Over the years, refrigerators have been widely used across households and commercial places to provide a convenient and safe means of food preservation. They are available based on their features, size, and applications. With rising awareness among customers, they seek “value options” that balance the characteristics of price, quality, convenience, consistency, and innovation. The demand for refrigerators is expected to increase in the forecast years. Furthermore, refrigerator companies are now in India focusing on innovative products to attract end-users. Nowadays, refrigerators are coming up with eco-friendly refrigerators that do not release harmful compounds. The sector’s rise has been fueled by new technology such as door configuration, convertible, edge-to-edge shelves, smart inverter technology, auto smart connect, Wi-Fi connectivity, etc.

The India refrigerator market is segmented into single-door, top freezer, bottom freezer, side-by-side, and french door in terms of type. The single-door product type has dominated the market, with a market share of more than 50% in 2022. It will maintain its dominance during the forecast period, but the market share will decline as consumers shift towards refrigerators with additional features and higher storage space. However, refrigerators such as top-freezers, side-by-side, etc., are the fastest growing because consumer preferences have shifted toward modernity instead of the traditional one.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the sales of refrigerators went down. Additionally, businesses approached zero levels in April and May up to this point, and most organizations either partially restricted production to exports only or closed their plants totally due to the exchange limitations and job creation across the country. On the other hand, e-commerce has seen significant growth as companies can generate revenue from refrigerators through online channels. Since January, Flipkart has seen a 2.5x demand for energy-effective and convertible refrigerator variations, offering higher capacity alongside multi-functional features like curd producers. As refrigerators are restricted in India compared to different regions, convertible choices are witnessing greater adoption, transforming the freezer section into a standard fridge. Regarding geography, the trends mentioned earlier are concentrated in metros, but smaller and tier-2 and tier-3 cities also contribute to this growth.
