A French door refrigerator is a combination of side by side top with a bottom door that has narrow vertical and bottom spaces. The bottom space in the refrigerator consists of pullout drawers that are used as freezing compartments. The freezing space at the bottom is smaller than the conventional top-mount freezer and it is occupied by an ice maker. Currently, newer refrigerator models with four doors are also available. Such a model has two vertical spaces at the bottom of the refrigerator, which replace drawers. This helps increase the space available. Availability of French door refrigerators in varying dimensions, advanced freezing technology, and attractive designs have led to these refrigerators gaining popularity across the globe.

Global French Door Refrigerator Market: Dynamics

Rise in popularity of French door refrigerators

A refrigerator is considered a basic home appliance used to preserve food for a long time. Rise in the disposable income and increase in the popularity of French door refrigerators are expected to drive the global market in the next few years. Additionally, French door refrigerators with advanced technology and innovative designs are gaining popularity among end-users. Furthermore, robust increase in the number of commercial kitchens, food services, and retailers is expected to fuel the global French door refrigerator market during the forecast period.

Adverse environmental effects of refrigeration in conventional refrigerators

Around 20% of the global warming impact of refrigeration systems is caused by direct leakage of fluorocarbons, such as hydro chlorofluorocarbons, into the atmosphere. Stringent regulatory laws are prompting manufacturers to use alternative eco-friendly refrigerants with a minimal impact on the environment and to adopt alternative technologies for vapor compression. However, use of French door refrigerators powered by electric energy generated from fossil fuel is directly hampering the environment. Moreover, conventional refrigerators with advanced technologies can be a major substitute for French door refrigerators. These factors are projected to hinder the global French door refrigerator market during the forecast period.
