Household refrigerator is a household appliance primarily used for food storage with protecting it from getting contaminated. It consists of thermally insulated compartment(s) and a heat pump that transfers heat from the inside of the appliance to its external environment maintaining the refrigerator temperature below the ambient room temperature. This reduces the reproduction rate of bacteria and reduces the rate of food spoilage. Recent technological advancements in household refrigerator technology has led to changing ecosystem of household appliances. For instance, filtered hot water on demand and integration of smart phone to check what’s inside the fridge, by selecting icons from a panel with the assistance of voice-recognition technology.
The upgraded models of household refrigerators are meticulously designed with integrated technologies for enhancing utility of appliance and storage of food in specially controlled conditions. Emerging technologies such as wireless communication and Internet of Things (IoT) along with their high adoption rate has led to integration of these technologies in household appliances. Similar trend is expected to transform the household refrigerator market. For instance, refrigerators with Wi-Fi-enabled touchscreen and embedded apps for cooking, messaging and music such as Epicurious for recipes and Evernote for note-taking are supporting additional activities along with food storage, leading to growth in household refrigerator market.
Household refrigerator market has been experiencing sustainable growth in recent years due to increasing demand for consumer goods, rapid economic growth, increasing demand for refrigerated food products, easy consumer finance, growth in urbanization and import and export activities in food and beverage sector.
