Temperature Controlled Pharma Packaging Solutions Market

2020 Analysis and Review of Temperature Controlled Pharma Packaging Solutions Market by Product - Insulated Shippers, Insulated Protective Shippers, Insulated Containers, and Others for 2020 - 2030

Temperature Controlled Pharma Packaging Solutions Market Outlook

The temperature controlled pharma packaging solutions market is anticipated to witness a positive growth trajectory over the forecast period. However, High maintenance and investment cost pertaining to the temperature controlled pharmaceutical packaging solution in the pharmaceutical industry is projected to hinder the market growth during the assessment period.

Lack of awareness concerning the benefits of the packaging solutions since only a few companies utilize temperature-controlled pharma packaging solutions may hinder market growth. Furthermore, lots of precautions are required to uphold during pharmaceutical product packaging to ascertain their stability and protection such as the container should be dry and clean, etc. Several stringent government legislation on the use of certain sorts of pharmaceutical products for producing temperature-controlled packaging solutions is estimated to restrict market growth.

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced several businesses to re-establish their respective growth trajectory for the approaching years. The market has foreseen a slump in demand in the first two quarters of 2020 owing to the high influence of COVID-19. This is majorly due to disruption across supply chains, triggered by the outbreak further fast-track the requirement for improved shelf-life of pharma products amid cold storage and shipment.

Rapid technical innovations and advancement are crucial aspects of the expansion of the industry. Major companies are investing more in research & developments to develop more efficient products to set their products apart from the competition.

For instance, Cryoport, Inc. a leading supplier of temperature-controlled supply chain solutions for the life sciences sector, acquired CRYOPDP, a leading provider of advanced temperature-controlled logistics solutions to the pharmaceutical, clinical research, and gene & cell therapy markets.

The acquisition will provide CRYOPDP noteworthy synergies with Cryoport's operating entity, Cryoport Systems, with very little overlap in infrastructure and capabilities, from a regional as well as product and service support viewpoint.

Insulated Shippers to Remain Top Selling Category

Insulated shippers account for more than 60% of the total sales and continue to influence manufacturers’ growth strategies. While EPS foam containers are typical product of choice of distributors and suppliers to ship specialty pharmaceuticals and biologics, demand for PUR containers and fiberboard is expected to remain strong going forward.

Today, many pharmaceutical companies are turning to PUR insulated shippers as an alternative to their EPS counterparts, owing to high durability and sustainability, reduced risk of product failure, less space consumption, and more extreme temperature control. Additionally, insulated containers, both chest style and upright style, are projected to garner significant traction in long-term dimensions.

APEJ to Outperform North America in 2020 Amid COVID-19 Related Disruptions

The latest strain of coronavirus has upended the global pharmaceutical supply chain - a major roadblock for key market players. China’s dominant role as the ‘world’s factory’ and the domino effect of nationwide lockdowns, product stoppages, scarcity of raw materials, and labor shortages are putting the global supply chain in general and North America’s temperature controlled pharma packaging market in particular at risk.

North America’s market is expected to lose its leading position to APEJ in 2020 and beyond, mainly assisted by recent restrictions on the export of various active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) from India and a large number of US-based generic drug manufacturers whose supply chain is heavily reliant on Chinese suppliers.

Next-gen Tracking Technology and High Insulation Based Packaging Solutions to Dictate Future Growth Prospects

Temperature controlled pharma packaging solutions will continue to see a stronger influence of regulations, considering the nature of products to be packed and shipped. Moreover, the demand for quality and compliance is growing at a faster rate than innovation. Market players are targeted towards reinforced composite materials with high thermal protection and stability to set their products apart from the competition.

The greater need for cost effective solutions for highly temperature-sensitive shipments is likely to direct the focus towards lightweight yet high insulation based packaging solutions. Through next-gen shippers and data management devices, innovative technologies are making their way into the market space, enabling faster, more accurate transparency in the movement of sensitive pharma products.
