Therefore, they are widely used for distributing small volume of products over short distances, such as pharmacy – home, wholesaler – home, and shop – home, among others. Effective cold chain management plays a critical role in ensuring consistency in the quality of the product across the distribution channel. The use of isothermal bags has significantly improved cold chain efficiency. One of the key purposes of cold chain management is to keep a check on the temperature to which vaccines and diluents are stored. The need for isothermal arose with the increasing need for temperature controlled storing solutions. The introduction of isothermal bags significantly aided those suffering from chronic diseases, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis. Over the years, there have been several design level transformations in isothermal bags, with consumer convenience, being at the epicenter. Nowadays, manufacturers of isothermal bags focus on solutions, which are practical, lightweight, and discreet.
Global isothermal bags market – Segmentation
The global isothermal bags market has been segmented as –
Isothermal bags offer excellent insulation, and can keep the products hot or cold for hours. Therefore, critical products, such as vaccines, insulin, and drug, which get denatured due to change in temperatures, can be safely carried during last mile transportation. In addition, the ongoing growth in consumption of frozen food.
*Pricing of isothermal bags has been done on the basis of capacity.
Global isothermal bags market – Key Players
Some of the key players operating in the global isothermal bags market are – Tempack Packaging Solutions S.L., Advanced Products Portugal, Cold & Co SPRL, Tecnisample s.l., Emball Iso, Greiner Bio One International GmbH, Medactiv, and Deltalab SL, among others.
Global isothermal bags market – Significance
Over the years, isothermal bags have undergone substantial design level changes. Many manufacturers are now adding cold packs to the isothermal bag to extend transport autonomy. There are several drugs which lose their effectiveness above 8°C. Therefore, maintaining the temperature is of key importance, during the last mile to ensure quality retention of the product. Pharmaceutical and drug monitoring companies across geographies are in the process to frame stringent legislations for handling and distribution of pharmaceutical products.
As of 2017, eight out of the top ten selling pharmaceutical products require storage and distribution at 2-8 degree Celsius. Therefore, there is an absolute need for storage solutions such as isothermal bags.
Key developments shaping the market
The road ahead
The need for product integrity at controlled temperature during last mile transit is expected to play a key role in the growth in demand for solutions such as isothermal bags. Increasing R&D in the field of biotechnology has boosted the demand for appropriate cold chain solutions to transport biological samples such as blood plasma, and serum, among others. Therefore, with advancement in the pharmaceutical sector, as well as the food & beverages industry, the global isothermal bags market is anticipated to face lucrative opportunities for growth, during the forecast period.
