The logistics and warehousing industry's revenue is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% during 2015-2019. The warehousing market in India is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8% to USD 2 billion in FY'2019. The cold chain industry is rising as a fast-growing logistics segment in India with major advancements and growth in the food processing sector, organized retail and government initiatives driving the industry forward in the coming years.
