A cold chain is a temperature controlled supply chain that involves the storage and transportation of temperature-sensitive perishable goods. A cold chain is series of storage and distribution activities at a desired temperature. Cold chain helps to preserve and extend the shelf life of various products including sea food, agricultural produce, frozen food, pharmaceuticals, etc. Food and pharmaceuticals are major end users industries of cold chain services.
Global cold chain market is mainly driven by increasing need of efficient storage system for perishable goods to avoid wastage of food products. Cold chains facilitate farmers to store perishable agriculture produce such as vegetables and fruits and increase its shelf life. Cold chains prevent farmers from significant losses because of spoilage of agriculture produce. Moreover, increasing population of the world has resulted into growing demand for food. This in turn has been resulted into growing need for cold chains. Rapid growth in frozen food market is also expected to drive cold chain market in the years to come. However, high cost of real estate and energy are expected to produce significant challenge for the growth of this industry.

Meat, fish & seafood dominated the global cold chain market with around 45% share of the total market in 2014.
