Global Cold Storage Mobile Computer Market Size, Trends, and Analysis- Forecasts To 2026 By Type (Basic, Phone-Size, Full-Size/ Gun-Gripe), By Wireless Technology (Wi-Fi, Cellular), By Operating System (Windows, Android), By Pricing (High, Low), By Region (North America, Asia Pacific, CSA, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa); End-User Landscape, Company Market Share Analysis & Competitor Analysis
Cold storage mobile computers are used to manage and monitor products that have to be stored in very low temperatures. The growing global market for various products has seen an increase in the import and export of perishable goods that require very low-temperature conditions to prevent spoilage and ensure the product reaches the consumer as fresh as possible. Mobile computers are becoming increasingly popular to collect data on the products being stored, monitor temperatures of the storage, enhance security features, and prevent unnecessary shutdowns. Stocktaking and inventory is a labor-intensive and time-consuming ordeal. With cold storage mobile computers that are capable of reading barcodes and wirelessly communicating with other devices, operators can reduce the amount of labor and time required to maintain the inventory. Cold storage mobile computers can reduce human errors which can prevent unnecessary shutdowns that can be very expensive to the company. There is a global increase in the importing and exporting of various products that require cold storage like food products, pharmaceuticals, and other perishable goods. The COVID-19 vaccines are being slowly released to various parts of the world. These vaccines require stringent temperature control during storage to ensure the vaccines do not become ineffective. This increase in demand for cold storage from the pandemic will increase the demand for cold storage mobile computers in the market. Cold storage mobile computers are built differently from other mobile computers. Cold storage mobile computers have to be able to withstand very low extreme temperatures and should work under these circumstances. They come with internal heaters that can prevent the extreme cold from interfering with the working of the cold storage mobile computers. They also require larger screens and keys to ensure workers can work the cold storage computers through their gloves. The screens should not fog up and the cold storage computers should be able to work even when the temperature varies when they are taken out of the cold storage areas. The cold storage mobile computers are connected to a wireless network that includes other devices and allows operators to monitor the products that are being stored, control the temperatures in various storages, and monitor security data. The market is driven by the increasing demand for cold storage facilities, the increasing implementation of a wireless network connected logistics management, the need to control temperatures, and the growing demand for cold storage for COVID-19 vaccines. The market is restrained by the cost of cold storage mobile computers and the limited connectivity in remote storage locations.
Based on the type, the cold storage mobile computers market can be segmented into basic, phone-size, and full-size/gun-gripe segments. The phone-size is likely to dominate the market and hold the dominant share from 2021 to 2026. The growing technological advancements in computer parts have seen computers becoming smaller and smaller especially for computers that do not require a lot of power. With the decrease in size, the cost has also been reducing. This has increased the implementation of phone-sized cold storage mobile computers and is expected to keep increasing during the forecast period.
Based on the wireless technology used, the cold storage mobile computers market is segmented into Wi-Fi and cellular segments. The Wi-Fi segment is the leading segment in technology type. The segment is driven by the remote nature of cold storage facilities which inhibits the coverage of cellular networks and the ability of Wi-Fi to set up localized networks that are capable of connecting the various cold storage mobile computers and other devices being used in the cold storage facility.
Based on the OS, the market is explained into the android OS and windows OS segments. The windows segment is dominant andholds the maximum share in the global market. Windows is one of the most common operating systems on the planet and the number of users and the large number of people who are comfortable with windows and a large number of windows skilled labor force are the major drivers for the expected dominance of the windows segment.
Based on the pricing, the cold storage computer market can be segmented into premium and low segments. The low segment is expected to be a dominating segment in pricing. For most cold storage applications, low-priced cold storage mobile computers are more than capable of doing the required job. The market is driven by the falling cost of computer parts, the high applicability of low-priced cold storage mobile computers, and the opportunity for owners to reduce capital cost.
The North American region is expected to hold the dominant share of the market. The region is quick to implement new technologies, increased demand for perishable products from other parts of the world, growing imports, and a large number of cold storage mobile vendors in the region. The APAC region will register peak growth among all other regions. The region’s major drivers for the growth of the cold storage mobile computers market in the region are the rising export of perishable goods to other regions, the rising number of cold storage mobile computers vendors, stringent government regulations on the storage of perishable food products, increased pharmaceutical production, and the growing number of cold storage facilities in the region.
AM, Honeywell International Inc., Unitech, Zebra Technologies Corporation, Janam, PULSA GmbH, Datalogic, MobileWorxs, Bartec, and Intermec, are the key players sharing maximum revenue.
