The unique insights provided by this report also includes the following:
Based on Service Type, transportation segment dominated the market in 2020
A huge part of the logistics services is attributed to transportation owing to its high cost. Among the various modes of transportation, overland transport accounted for the largest market share in 2020. In the international supply, trucks are the main workhorses alongside railways. Trucks are the most common way of transportation and in the U.S., an average of 50 million tons of freight is transported using trucks each day. Overland transport is the most widely used mode of transport owing to the presence of excellent road infrastructure in most of the countries worldwide, flexibility, and ability of door-to-door service.
Furthermore, the increasing demand for sea freight is anticipated to accelerate the demand for temperature controlled services during the forecast period. Using water transport reduces transportation by almost 70% to 80% and is thus gaining popularity among pharmaceutical manufacturing companies.
Based on Logistics Type, Non-cold chain logistics held the largest market share in the global temperature controlled services for healthcare market in 2020
The non-cold chain logistics is used for the transportation of healthcare products that do not require temperature control. The non-cold chain logistics accounted for the largest market share in 2020, driven by the considerable demand from the pharmaceutical industry. Whereas, cold chain logistics involves the shipment of temperature-sensitive products using refrigerated and thermal packaging to protect the integrity of products. Cold chain logistics is the fastest growing segment when it comes to biopharmaceutical logistics. The biopharmaceutical industry is witnessing exponential growth which is supporting the market for cold chain logistics.
The market for cold chain logistics is growing at a higher rate due to the rising demand and development of temperature-sensitive healthcare products. Cold chain logistics experienced a surge in demand over the past two years due to the advent of pandemic. The ongoing COVID-19 vaccine distribution has proliferated the demand for cold chain logistics as the vaccines are sensitive to temperature.
However, most of the developing countries lack the appropriate infrastructure to support cold chain logistics which significantly hampered the market growth and posed challenges in the vaccine distribution for coronavirus. Most of the companies across the healthcare logistics have grabbed the opportunity during pandemic to cater to the rising healthcare needs by introducing new solutions and expanding their business.
Based on Regions, the North America region is the largest contributor to the market revenue in 2020
North America held the largest market share in 2020 and the market growth in the region is attributed to the accelerating demand from the healthcare industry, regulatory changes supporting the pharmaceutical industry growth, and increasing technology integration in healthcare logistics.
Technologies such as RFID, IoT, and drone are increasingly being used across temperature controlled services. Companies across the healthcare logistics supply chain are providing new services and solutions to meet the demand for contact-free delivery amid the pandemic. For instance, in July 2020, UPS expanded its drone delivery network in North Carolina in collaboration with Matternet’s M2 drone system to enable a new hospital delivery network.
