Market Overview:

The global ice machine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for soft and hard ice cream machines across different applications such as catering, entertainment venues, shops, plants, and other sectors. North America is expected to hold the largest share of the global ice machine market in 2018 owing to factors such as rising disposable income levels and growing demand for frozen desserts. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period due to rising population levels and increasing per capita income in countries such as China and India.

Global Ice Machine Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An ice machine is a device used to create ice from water. The importance of an ice machine varies depending on the application. In some cases, such as in a restaurant, an ice machine is necessary for keeping food cold and preparing drinks. In other cases, such as in a household, an ice machine may be used less frequently or not at all.

Soft Ice Cream Machine:

Soft ice cream machine is a device used to make soft serve ice cream. It is also called as manual or electric ice-cream maker. Soft serve machines are low in cost and easy to use, which makes it popular among small shops and home users.

Hard Ice Cream Machine:

Hard ice cream machine is used to make hard ice cream. It has different types of freezing systems like dry freezers, liquid nitrogen freezers and liquid carbon dioxide freezers. The most common type of hard ice cream is made with milk and sugar.

The working principle of the machine is very simple, it uses a mixture of air and water which gets frozen due to the presence of cryogenic agent (generally CO2 or N2).

Application Insights:

The entertainment venue segment dominated the global market in 2017. The application of ice machines at various events, such as sports games and live shows, is anticipated to drive the demand for these machines over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing number of music festivals across different regions is expected to boost industry growth over the coming years.

The shop segment accounted for a significant share in 2017 owing to rising consumer spending on luxury goods and services. Moreover, shops are likely to remain one of the prominent end-use segments due to growing disposable income among consumers coupled with an increase in their shopping trips within a city or region. This trend will benefit industry growth over the coming years as more people spend their money on personal grooming products and other high-end items from stores or online retailers that have installed ice machines for long hours operation.

Plant segment accounted for a significant share in terms of revenue generation due to rapid industrialization along with urbanization trends across various regions including Asia Pacific.

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of ice cream parlors, which are catering to growing demand from consumers. China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and India are some of the prominent countries that have contributed significantly toward regional growth.

North America is projected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to increasing popularity of frozen desserts in U.S., Canada and Mexico among millennials as well as other age groups due to rising health concerns about fresh fruits & vegetables being contaminated with pesticides or undergoing spoilage during transportation from farmlands/orchards/greenhouses etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for processed food and beverages: The global processed food and beverage market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016 to 2021. This growth is driven by the increasing urbanization and rising disposable income of consumers in developing countries.
  • Growing popularity of ice cream: Ice cream is one of the most popular desserts across the globe, with a market value of more than billion in 2016. The growing demand for premium ice creams has led to an increase in the use of ice machines by restaurants, cafes, and other foodservice establishments.
  • Rising number of hotels and restaurants: The number of hotels and restaurants is increasing rapidly across the world as there is a growing trend among people to travel and eat out at restaurants instead of cooking at home. This has resulted in an increase in demand for commercial ice machines from these establishments.
