Cold Chain Monitoring Market by Component (Hardware: Data Loggers & Sensors, RFID Devices, Telemetry & Telematics, Networking Devices, and Software), Logistics (Storage, and Transportation), Application, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2022
“The enactment of strict regulatory framework for pharmaceutical practices in North America and Europe is expected to drive the cold chain monitoring market.”
The cold chain monitoring market size is expected to grow from USD 3.11 billion in 2015 to USD 6.23 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 9.84% between 2016 and 2022. Monitoring solutions improve the performance of the cold chain operations by providing real-time actionable data about the storage and distribution network in various applications. Effective monitoring of cold chain activities in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors reduces wastage by prolonging shelf live and effectiveness of the drugs. The regulatory bodies have thereby enacted rules pertaining to the effective management of the pharmaceutical products; this is a major driver for the cold chain monitoring market. The growing demand for quality food products is also boosting the growth of the cold chain monitoring market for food and beverages applications. However, the cost of the installation of equipment in an expansive cold chain has proved to be a major restraining factor for the market growth. However, the growing trend of warehouse automation is creating huge major opportunities for the cold chain monitoring market.
“The cold chain monitoring market for transportation logistics is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period due to the expansions and evolution of the present cold chain activities.”
The market for transportation logistics is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The transportation sector is exposed to external influences, which are detrimental to the cold chain. This necessitates the use of enhanced monitoring solutions to effectively control the losses due to enviromental changes and mismanagement. The growing cold chain also results in the rising transportational support required in the distribution activities of the cold chain.
“The cold chain monitoring market in APAC is likely to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, whereas the Americas is expected to hold the largest market share between 2016 and 2022.”
The cold chain monitoring market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The growing demand for food, rapid urbanization, and initaitives by governments to bring more people under the healthcare umbrella are some of the factors driving the growth of the cold chain monitoring market in this region. The Americas is expected to hold the largest share of the cold chain monitroing market between 2016 and 2022. The pharmaceutical regulatory environment in North America, growing food-based cold chains in South America, and considerable number of cold chain monitoring solution providers in the U.S. are some of the factors driving the market growth in the Americas.
