Market Dynamics


Increase in refrigerated warehouses

The hundreds of warehouses with cold chain systems are being built to ensure the best possible storage and transit conditions for temperature-sensitive products. The crucial links that the cold chain solutions system provides are vital to a variety of export sectors. Due to end-to-end cold chain security is the weak link in the system; businesses invest millions of dollars to build efficient, effective, and dependable processes. A single disruption in the logistics system can result in capital losses and catastrophic products. Additionally, the demand for online pharmacies is increasing their demand for cold storage. Thus, the increase in refrigerated warehouses is driving the growth of pharmaceutical logistics market during the forecast period.


Lack of standardization

The lack of standards and accreditations causes substantial issues for the pharmaceutical logistics market, which is currently concerned about the quality and flexibility of available warehouse spaces. In many circumstances, the enterprises must invest additional funds to update the facility and its specifications to industry-specific standards that support their operations. Thus, the lack of standardization is the restricting factor for the growth of pharmaceutical logistics market during the forecast period.


Growth in pharmaceutical industry

Pharmaceutical companies are concentrating efforts on product quality and sensitivity. Increased creation of more sophisticated biological-based medications and vaccinations that require cold storage must all be carried at a controlled temperature, which can be accomplished using cold chain logistics. The broader healthcare logistics business is seeing significant increase in transportation and delivery of temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products and drugs. The pharmaceutical logistics industry will need to respond swiftly to rising volume, sensitivity, and quality standards of commodities, as well as ever-increasing restrictions. As a result, growth in pharmaceutical industry is creating lucrative opportunities for the growth of pharmaceutical logistics market during the forecast period.


High operational cost of cold chain logistics

The cold chain logistics market uses a lot of electricity on a daily basis. As a result of the rising cost of consumed energy, cold chain service providers are finding it difficult to reduce their operational costs. Furthermore, high energy and real estate expenses are likely to make the planning and implementation process difficult. Thus, the high operational costs of cold chain logistics is a huge challenge for the growth of pharmaceutical logistics market during the forecast period.
