How Is The Philippines Frozen Storage Market Positioned?
During the 1980s till 2002, Philippines frozen storage industry was considered to be in its nascent or emerging phase. Owing to the geographical location, the country experiences a high average annual temperature ranging from +21C to +32C. This results in high demand for low-temperature control services including cold and frozen storage pallets. However, during this phase, there was an acute shortage of cold chain solutions especially in rural areas which augmented the demand in this industry. On the contrary, the market also faces challenges of high maintenance costs indicating a dire need for government and private initiatives to instill momentum in the sector. The year 2002 witnessed the formation of the Cold Chain Association of the Philippines, commonly referred to as CCAP with over 100 logistics and construction companies as its members.
Consequently, initiatives such as the Philippines National Cold Chain Program launched in 2004 by USDA Food for Progress, Philippine Nautical Highway System and introduction of the RORO system in 2015 also propelled the frozen industry of the country. Presently, the market is in its growth stage and has constantly risen to owe to factors such as increasing demand for frozen transport and blast freezer services, an increase in per capita income and growing consumer preference for fast food products. Budding e-commerce business and online grocery shopping have also positively impacted the frozen storage business.
What Is the Philippines Frozen Storage Demand Side Analysis?
To assess the demand for frozen pallets in the Philippines, our team compared the Philippine market with the Indonesia market including frozen food production and imports estimating the amount at ~ million tons and ~ million tons during 2019 for the Philippines and Indonesia respectively. Thus, for the number of pallet positions per ton to be at par between the Philippines and Indonesia, the Philippines should have ~ pallet positions, implying a shortage of around ~ pallets. Moreover, since the Philippines have ~ times higher food wastage than Indonesia, the additional pallet position required in the Philippines was around ~ pallets in 2019.
What Is The Demand-Supply Gap For Frozen Storage Pallets In the Philippines?
The Philippines required additional ~ pallet positions to meet the frozen food consumption requirement accounting for food wastage. In the next five years till 2025, we are anticipating this gap to be reduced to approximately ~ pallet positions as various players complete their respective expansion projects.
What Is The Scenario Of Food Wastage In Southeast Asian Nations?
As per Ken Research Analysis, the Philippines have the highest food wastage in Southeast Asia. The increasing population in the region, especially the Philippines is anticipated to augment the demand for food and beverages requiring cold storage. Cold chain sector is projected to require increasing initiatives, including investments by both the government and private sector to overcome challenges of food wastage as the shortage of cold storage pallets is a key contributor to this wastage.
According to the Journal of Developments in Sustainable Agriculture 11, Institute of Food Science and Technology, substantial post-harvest losses of up to ~% were recorded from the initial harvesting, grading, packaging, and transportation from field to storage and distribution to the consumers in the Philippines. The cold chain system allows the transfer of agricultural produce from farm to market at controlled temperature and relative humidity. Most growers in the Philippines lack farm to cold storage facilities. Thus, perishable produce is often left in the open or kept under ambient temperature conditions.
