Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is adoption of automated storage and retrieval systems. The adoption and use of automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) is one of the major trends in the pharmaceutical logistics companies in APAC, such as Daifuku and Dematic. AS/RS are inventory management systems that are widely used in manufacturing and distribution centers.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is rise in import and export of drugs and medicines in APAC. The total drugs and medicines export from APAC was more than $95 billion in 2016. The pharmaceutical export in APAC to other countries is surging as the pharmaceutical market in the region is constantly growing. For instance, India is the largest generic drug supplier globally with a market share of more than 18% of the global export by volume in the generic drug category. India has also maintained its lead over China in the pharmaceutical exports market with a growth rate of more than 11% to $12.91 billion during 2015-2016.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is pharmaceutical product labeling and temperature excursion loss. Labeling is an important process for the shipping of pharmaceutical products. It provides information about the conditions required for safe transport and storage. Product labeling processes adopted by various companies have been found to be inefficient, which is posing a serious challenge to the pharmaceutical logistics market in APAC. Unstructured pharmaceutical product data makes the drug labeling processes tedious and labor-intensive.
