Market Synopsis

Fishery and Aquatic Food Processing Industry to Remain an Important Application Field for Flake Ice

Fishery and aquatic food processing stood as the largest segment in terms of value in 2017. Flake ice is extensively used in the fishery and aquatic food processing industries. Flake ice is one of the best methods for cooling seafood products quickly in order to preserve peak freshness. Moreover, the fact that flake ice is harmless, portable, and cheap is another important factor aiding its adoption in the fishery and aquatic food processing industries. Flake ice helps in keeping the fish cold, moist, and glossy, and at the same time, proves beneficial to prevent dehydration, which is often common in cases of other methods of cooling, such as refrigerated storage without ice.

Product Innovation Will Remain an Important Strategy for Manufacturers to Gain a Competitive Advantage

The flake ice machine market is highly competitive, with the presence of both domestic and international players. Product quality, brand recognition, availability, performance, product innovation, and product pricing are some of the major criteria on which the market players usually compete. In order to get a competitive advantage, the players often invest in product innovation. For instance, recently, MAJA, a German-based manufacturer of flake ice machines, introduced a "hybrid" machine that facilitates end users, such as supermarkets, to initially use an HFC refrigerant but ultimately transit to CO2. The new product is specially targeted at customers who are not able to invest in CO2 refrigeration racks at the moment but can switch over in the coming years.
