Ultra-low Temperature Freezers Market to Reach US$ 738.6 Mn by 2031: TMR Study

Ultra-low Temperature Freezers
March 27, 2024 ( PR Submission Site )

The global ultra-low temperature freezers market, valued at US$ 477.9 Mn in 2021, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2022 to 2031, reaching over US$ 738.6 Mn by 2031. Analysts predict a surge in market demand driven by increased investment in drug development, as ultra-low temperature freezers are crucial for storing samples at specific temperature ranges.

Advancements in drug discovery and clinical testing, coupled with rising incidences of diseases like cancer, are key growth drivers. The availability of ultra-low temperature freezers has significantly expanded vaccine storage capacity, facilitating global vaccine distribution. Market players are launching new products to bolster their market share in this growing segment. Ultra-low Temperature (ULT) freezers, also known as -80 freezers, are crucial in the life sciences sector for long-term storage of biomolecules. Operating between -40°C to -86°C (-40°F to -123°F), they prevent denaturation of biomolecules like oligonucleotides and proteins.

Featuring dual doors for temperature stability, an inner door minimizes heat influx, while exterior knobs and silicone gaskets ensure tight sealing. With polyurethane walls providing effective insulation, ULT freezers safeguard stored samples from external environmental conditions. Growth in Biobanking Sector Driving Global Ultra-low Temperature Freezers Market Size Blood banks play a crucial role in collecting, preserving, and distributing valuable biological samples for scientific research in both public and private sectors.

Investments in new therapies are on the rise to address healthcare gaps. The biobanking sector is poised for significant growth, especially in developing regions like Asia Pacific and Africa, owing to their genetic and biodiversity. Increased R&D investment in chronic diseases is expected to fuel growth in these regions. While public biobanks dominate, private ones are growing due to rising demand for preserving stem cells, gamete cells, and tissues.
