The refrigeration sector is one of the most critical industries worldwide. It plays a vital role in keeping perishable products fresh and safe for consumption.
To ensure the efficiency and longevity of refrigeration units, it is essential to use high-quality OEM spare parts. That’s where the OEM spare parts industry comes in — while it’s expected to evolve in the coming years, here are four trends shaping its future…
1. Rising demand
Driven by population growth, urbanisation, and increasing demand for fresh and safe food products, the demand for cooling units is expected to increase. This growth in demand will lead to a corresponding increase in the demand for OEM spare parts. So OEM spare parts suppliers need to be prepared to meet this increasing demand by scaling up their production and improving their supply chain processes.
2. Advancing technologies
The refrigeration sector is becoming increasingly technology-driven. The use of IoT, data analytics and machine learning is transforming the industry, leading to more efficient and smarter refrigeration units. This technological revolution will also impact the OEM spare parts industry. OEM spare parts suppliers need to keep up with the latest technological advancements to provide the most advanced spare parts to their customers.
3. Supply chain evolution
The rise of e-commerce and the digitalisation of the supply chain is also set to impact the OEM spare parts industry in the refrigeration sector. Customers are increasingly turning to online marketplaces to purchase spare parts, and suppliers need to be able to offer their products through these channels.
Additionally, digitalisation will help to streamline the supply chain and improve delivery times, making it easier for customers to receive their OEM spare parts quickly.
4. Improved sustainability
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the refrigeration sector. Governments around the world are implementing regulations to reduce the environmental impact of refrigeration units, and customers are increasingly demanding eco-friendly solutions.
This shift towards sustainability will also impact the OEM spare parts industry, with suppliers needing to provide environmentally friendly spare parts.
“The future of the OEM spare parts industry in the refrigeration sector is set to be driven by increasing demand, technological advancements, digitalisation, and sustainability,” says Tristan Buchinhoren, managing director and founder of Spare Exparts. “OEM spare parts suppliers, like us, that are prepared to adapt to these changes and invest in the latest technologies, will be well-positioned to meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
