Qatar Cold Chain Market – Growth, Trends, Covid-19 Impact, Size And Forecast: Ken Research


Qatar’s Increasing Reliance on Domestic Food Industry: Qatar had been largely dependent on food imports from countries. However, the blockade introduced in June 2017 halted food supply lines from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates to Qatar. This allowed Qatar to focus on building a self-sustaining food supply chain, increasing dependence on cold storage and transportation. Hence, the government made advancements in Qatar’s domestic food industry to reduce impact of possible import fluctuations, further increasing the demand for cold warehouses in the Qatar.

Qatar National Vision 2030: In accordance with ‘Qatar National Vision 2030’, the logistics sector has been contributing significantly in Qatar’s goal of diversifying the economy. Al Wukair Logistics Park is one such facility offering one-stop-shop for leasing warehouses and running logistics operations for businesses. In order to achieve the government’s objective of making Qatar an advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for its people by 2030, investments in the cold warehouse and transportation system are being made.

Technological Advancement and Automation: Cold chain operators in the country are implementing modern technologies such as radio frequency identification to enable asset remote diagnostics in real time and integration & communication between all processes. Exponential adoption growth of RFID in Qatar warehouse operations is expected. Adoption of automation in the facilities is being implemented using automated storage and retrieval systems and cloud computing. Further, robotics are being used for picking, sorting and loading/ unloading to increase operational efficiency.

FIFA World Cup 2022: Since FIFA Cup 2022 is to be held in Qatar, development of the infrastructure and construction sector have been given leeway. This in turn has increased the trade and cold chain warehousing activity in Qatar and will help the expansion of the market over the coming years. GWC has been chosen as the ‘Regional Supporter and Official Logistics Provider’ for the FIFA World Cup 2022. It will provide event logistics, customs brokerage, global freight forwarding, venue services, warehousing services, and reverse logistics.
