Factors driving growth and revenue of the healthcare segment of the global temperature controlled packaging solutions market
International organizations such as World Health Organization (WHO) are continuously focussing on reducing wastage of vaccines across the globe. As a part of this, various programs are initiated to monitor vaccine wastage at country levels. These programs also focus on proper handling and transportation of vaccines. This particular factor surges the demand for temperature controlled packaging in the healthcare sector. Another factor that is creating a positive impact on the market is an unprecedented shift towards structurally-complex biotechnology drugs over chemical-based drugs. Drugs used in the treatment of cancer or cold chain drugs such as insulin require constant temperature control. These specified drugs are fuelling the demand for temperature controlled packaging solutions, which is ultimately boosting the global temperature controlled packaging solutions market.
As patents on prominent biologics expire by 2022, leading pharmacy manufacturers are anticipated to flood the market with variegated biopharma and biosimilars, further driving the need for temperature controlled packaging solutions
Several regulations regarding handling and distribution of pharmaceutical products are being implemented in various regions in North America and Europe to harmonise manufacturing, processing and distribution of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products. This in turn is creating a favourable environment for temperature controlled packaging solution services
Transportation of temperature-sensitive products using passive systems such as temperature controlled packaging provides flexibility of transportation and ease of handling, thus reducing damage during transportation
Sluggish growth of the global temperature controlled packaging solutions market in the Japanese healthcare sector
Sluggish growth in the Japanese pharmaceutical sector owing to a moderate economic growth, falling drug prices, and pro-generics policies is projected to keep the global temperature controlled packaging solutions market in the region highly cost sensitive; therefore companies in this region should introduce more cost-effective solutions addressing the Ambient/CRT and frozen applications segments. The recent shift in clinical trials from developed countries to Brazil, Argentina, and Peru is further expected to create good market opportunities for temperature controlled packaging solution providers. Increasing regulations regarding temperature assured packaging of most pharmaceutical products in Western Europe is helping maintain continuous growth in the region and revenues in the region are anticipated to expand with a CAGR of more than 8% over the forecast period.
