Rise in global population and disposable income to drive industry demand


The growing global population and increasing disposable incomes have spurred a notable surge in the demand for fresh and top-quality perishable goods. With consumers becoming increasingly health-conscious and favoring nutrient-rich, minimally processed foods, the transportation market for perishable goods is experiencing significant growth. As per the United Nations projections, the world population is anticipated to reach USD 9.7 billion by 2050, further intensifying the need for efficient and dependable transportation of perishable products. Moreover, the rapid expansion of e-commerce platforms has facilitated easier access to a diverse range of perishable goods for consumers, contributing further to the market’s expansion.

The globalization of supply chains and the expansion of international trade have profoundly affected the transportation market for perishable goods.
