“Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market: Trends and Opportunities”
Driven by factors such as the strong growth of the bio-pharmaceutical and vaccine markets, increasing outsourcing trends, rising regulatory focus and the expansion of manufacturers into new geographies, the requirement for temperature assured distribution and handling of healthcare products is currently witnessing strong growth.

Healthcare cold chain logistics services refers to the packaging, storage, transportation and monitoring of temperature sensitive healthcare products (biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and clinical trial materials) along a supply chain. Over the last few decades, there has been a dramatic change in the nature of healthcare products. Drug portfolios have evolved from primary reliance on small molecule drugs, towards more structurally complex biopharmaceutical products, which often have much stricter storage and transportation requirements.

Gaps and breakdowns along the supply chain can set off a chain of dire consequences for product manufacturers. This may result in greater regulatory scrutiny and high financial penalties to plummeting sales, a damaged brand equity, and worst of all, compromised patient safety. This along with other factors such as the strong growth of the biopharmaceutical and vaccine markets, increasing outsourcing trends, rising regulatory focus on the integrity of healthcare products and an expansion of manufacturers into new geographies have created a strong growth in the requirement for temperature assured distribution and handling of materials.

IMARC’s new report “Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast – 2016 – 2021”, provides an analytical, statistical and technical insight into the global healthcare cold chain logistic market. The study, which is based both on desk research and multiple waves of qualitative primary research, is a must-read for entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, consultants, business strategists, and all those who are planning to foray into the healthcare cold chain logistics industry in any manner.
