The medical and lab refrigerator market was valued at US$ 2,267.9 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 3,096.6 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2020 to 2027.

Growing demand for safe storage of blood and blood derivatives from hospitals, pharmacies, clinics, and diagnostic centers is boosting the medical and lab refrigerator market growth across the world. Both in medical research and pharmaceutical sector, rising government funding is expected to increase the demand for medical and laboratory refrigerators further. For example, the Medical Device Directive of the European Commission has used specific requirements and regulations for biomedical freezers and refrigerators to store blood and blood components. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of various chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiac diseases, and infectious diseases is leading to an increase in blood transfusion demand another critical factor that will boost the medical and lab refrigerators market growth. According to the European Society of Hemapheresis (ESFH), high preference toward plasmapheresis will raise the installation of plasma freezers in hospitals, blood banks, and research organizations for the storage of fresh frozen plasma, RBCs, and other blood derivatives. Increasing awareness about blood donation and government initiatives to encourage donations will also foster business growth. However, the high cost of refrigerators and freezers of medical grade, as well as increasing preference for refurbished equipment, may impede the medical and lab refrigerator market growth during the period of analysis.
