North America Market Study on Commercial Refrigeration Fans: Criticality of Energy Efficiency Pushing Innovations in Refrigeration Space

North America Commercial Refrigeration Fans Market Segmentation By Material Type - Metal, Composites and Motor Technology - ECM Motor Technology, PSC Motor Technology


Commercial refrigeration fans are fitted in refrigeration equipment to promote even air-flow and cooling throughout the cabinet. These fans are used to draw out hot air and ensure a supply of fresh air, which is cooled by the refrigerant pumped from the compressor.

Commercial refrigeration fans are powered through motors that draw power from an external power supply source of the refrigerating equipment. These fans come in different sizes to suit various requirements, and are found in several types of equipment including refrigerators and freezers, transport trucks, trailers, containers, beverage refrigerators, and display cases.

Energy Efficiency and Eco-Friendly Refrigeration is the Key to Sustainability

The increasing regulations enforced by environmental agencies are compelling industries to adopt energy-efficient commercial refrigeration equipment.  For instance, the efforts made by Energy Star, Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. (EPA), and Department of Energy, U.S. (DOE) through voluntary programs, to support businesses and individuals with rebates, is encouraging the adoption of such equipment in industrial as well as commercial establishments.

The enforcement of a ban on refrigerants such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are significantly contributing to climate change, is also a step to promote sustainability in the market. Electronically commutated motors that offer variable speed options in addition to being energy-efficient are mostly used in commercial refrigeration systems.

Electronically commutated motors are maintenance-free, as the number of moving parts in these motors is minimal. Furthermore, electronically commutated motors operate silently and are vibration-free. These are some of the key factors that are making OEMs adopt ECM motors to power commercial refrigeration fans.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

A comprehensive view of the North America commercial refrigeration fans market has led our analysts to conclude that, the market is growing at an impressive rate, with the United States continuing to hold its dominance over the forecast period.

Mexico is also expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the commercial refrigeration fans market, on account of its steady GDP growth. In addition, the emergence of a large number of supermarkets and hypermarkets in Mexico is also expected to fuel the growth of the North America commercial refrigeration fans market. Consumer demand for lightweight fans is picking up traction owing to the availability of composite materials. The lower cost associated with the manufacture of composite material based fans is also one of the key factors which will lead to price reduction of commercial refrigeration fans. Further, the use of composite materials in fan fabrication brings about a significant reduction in the overall weight of commercial refrigeration fans.

Governmental regulations mandating the use of energy-efficient appliances is also resulting in the development of economical drive systems for commercial refrigeration fans. Electronically commutated motors have taken center stage and are slowly eroding the market share of permanent split capacitor motors which have higher energy and maintenance requirement.

It is expected that the burgeoning e-commerce industry which is making players like Amazon forge partnerships with local stores which sell perishable commodities / daily needs will also need to incorporate refrigerated vans within their delivery fleet. This is likely to lend wings to the long term growth prospects of the North America commercial refrigeration fans market.
