CBRE

The cold storage segment is expected to witness significant growth over the next few years on the back of a strong consumer and industrial base, according to the findings of CBRE South Asia.

The findings were released by the leading real estate consulting firm on October 12.

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for CS is also being further fueled by a wider omni-channel distribution of F&G across Tier-I and Tier-II cities in the country, according to the report. Further, the cold chain network would also play a vital role in reducing the loss of the produce and improving CS efficiencies, it said.

States including Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Gujarat, Punjab Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Haryana and Karnataka accounted for 91 per cent of the total CS capacity in India in 2019. The overall CS RE stock of in the country is estimated to reach 1,400 – 1,500 million sq. ft. by 2023.
