Insulated Shipping Boxes Market: Overview

The rising utilization of protective packaging and transportation is expected to push the demand for insulated shipping boxes across the globe. There are various heat sensitive products in multiple industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and others which needs temperature controlled environment. Therefore most of the companies depend on the insulated shipping boxes for safe and secured transportation of their products. Insulated shipping boxes are suitable to overcome extreme temperature variations, i.e., neither too high nor too low. Insulated shipping boxes are appropriate solutions to maintain critical temperature conditions for heat sensitive products. Insulated shipping boxes are made up of expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), and polyurethane, sometimes placed in a corrugated box. They are available in various sizes and specifications. The outlook for the global insulated shipping boxes is expected to be positive during the forecast period.

Insulated Shipping Boxes Market: Dynamics

The global insulated shipping boxes market is expected to expand owing to the rising demand for temperature sensitive products. The growing consumption of perishable food products, temperature-sensitive chemicals, pharmaceutical goods, and laboratory products among others are expected to drive the demand for the insulated shipping boxes during the forecast period. Exposure to extreme temperature and climatic conditions is expected to propel the need for the insulated shipping boxes in the market. The increasing demand for protective packaging pushes manufacturers to implement the use of cold chain shipping and controlled distribution system. Compact sizes of insulated shipping boxes allow easy storage and thus freeing warehouse space. Also, these boxes can be custom printed and can be manufactured as per the customers’ requirement. Unlike refrigerated containers which require electricity to maintain a constant temperature, whereas insulated shipping boxes depend on their insulating characteristics. They save electricity expenses. Besides, insulated shipping boxes are used for the short distance transportation of pre-cooked food and frozen products. These factors are expected to drive the demand for insulated shipping boxes during the next decade. The higher cost of insulated shipping boxes and availability of flexible insulated packaging solutions can hamper the growth prospects of the global insulated shipping boxes market during the forecast period. Overall the market is expected to witness lucrative growth opportunities during the next decade.
