With the growth of China’s economy over the past decade, the residents’ food consumption structure has experienced constant adjustment, a situation that led to a rising demand for food cold chain. Moreover, the government at all levels has poured more funds into the construction of cold-chain infrastructure in an attempt to spur the rapid development of cold chain logistics. In 2005, China’s cold chain logistics industry scale was only RMB41.7 billion, but by 2015, the figure surged to RMB158.3 billion, registering a CAGR of up to 14.3%.

Although China has built a certain foundation in cold chain logistics in the past decade, the cold chain logistics industry in the country is still in its infancy because of poor infrastructure, imperfect logistics system, and low degree of marketization. In future, with the continuous adtruckcement of urbanization, the cold chain policy environment tends to be clearer, and hence the rise of fresh food e-commerce and the ongoing financial innovation would further drive the development of cold chain logistics industry. We project that by 2020 the cold chain logistics market size in China will reach RMB347.9 billion, with an estimated CAGR of 17.1% during 2015-2020.

In China, the cold chain logistics demand comes mainly from five kinds of agricultural products including meat, aquatic products, frozen food, fruits & vegetables, and dairy products. In 2015, the cold chain circulation of these products reached 332.24 million tons, up 15.55% year on year, and it is anticipated that by 2020 the market size will hit 597.8 million tons, registering an estimated CAGR of 12.47%. By cold chain circulation, the fruit & vegetable cold chain constitutes the largest market segment; the cold chain demand from aquatic products is growing rapidly. As the cold chain technologies become more mature, the two kinds of products will hold larger market share. Additionally, pharmaceutical products, especially vaccines, blood products and diagnostic reagents, will become an important growth area of cold chain logistics,

The competitive landscape for cold chain logistics industry chains is reflected in the following:

In terms of logistics operation, most cold chain logistics enterprises often operate both cold storage and cold-chain transportation business. For example, the enterprises like Xianyi Holding, Swire Cold Chain Logistics, and Zheng Ming Modern Logistics not only take the lead in cold storage capacity in China, but also have strong transport capacity.

With regard to cold storage, the cold storages in China are unevenly distributed, with low market concentration. According to the data released by Cold Storage Branch of CAWS, the top 10 cold storage operators had a combined volume of 9.3 million cubic meters in 2014, accounting for a market share of around 10.5%; the volume of the top 30 cold storage operators held an aggregate of 15.31 million cubic meters, occupying a 17.3% market share. The typical enterprises, including Henan Xianyi Supply Chain, Swire Cold Chain Logistics, and CMAC, have large cold storage networks across China.
