Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Overview

The healthcare cold chain logistics market is estimated to be worth $1.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. The origins of the cold chain for transportation of temperature sensitive products can be traced back to 1797, when British fishermen first used natural ice to preserve their fish stock.Presently, a wide variety of pharmaceutical products, such as biologics, vaccines, human organs for transplantation and certain conventional pharmacological interventions as well, are temperature sensitive and require freezing / cryogenic holding temperatures for transport. In fact, over 95% of all approved biologics and 90% of all vaccines are cold chain dependent. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the number of development programs for vaccines, significantly raising the demand for cold chain service providers in the foreseen future. In order to cope with increased inflow of patients, countries must prepare sustainable cold chain logistics to deliver / supply COVID-19 vaccine to different parts of globe. Other healthcare products which are required to be shipped / stored under specific temperature conditions include aerosols, blood plasma samples, certain types of diagnostics kits, fertility samples, and laboratory specimens. For some products, even the slightest variations in temperature / storage conditions can adversely alter their integrity and / or viability.

Over the years, the growing demand for such products has necessitated the need for well-defined infrastructure and protocols to support cold chain dependent logistics operations. Further, stakeholders in this segment of the industry have designed and established a variety of innovative solutions to serve the evolving demands of the healthcare sector. Moreover, connected cold chain solutions have been observed to offer a variety of advantages over conventional methodologies, such as automation of most of the steps and elimination of human handling errors that are associated with human intervention.
