Pharmaceutical Logistics Market Segmental Analysis

Global pharmaceutical logistics market is divided on the basis of type, component, and region. By type, the market is segmented into cold chain logistics, non-cold chain logistics. By component, the market is segmented into storage, transportation, monitoring components. By region, it is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and MEA.

Pharmaceutical Logistics Market Analysis by Type

Global pharmaceutical logistics market was dominated by cold chain logistics, which had a revenue share of more than 28.0% in 2021 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR from 2022 to 2028. The rise in demand for temperature-controlled products, such as the ongoing distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, necessitates precise temperature control logistics services to ensure the products' efficacy.

Furthermore, stringent government regulations requiring highly temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products to be kept at precise temperatures are expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period. The increasing use of telematics in cold chain pharmaceutical logistics is assisting companies in improving the efficiency, connectivity, and safety of transport cargoes.

Most biological and medical products require a temperature-controlled environment during the manufacturing and distribution stages, which aids in the preservation of the medicines' effectiveness and quality. As a result, pharmaceutical companies use temperature-controlled transportation and cold storage systems. Because of the increasing demand for non-cold chain pharma medicines and other products, the non-cold chain segment is expected to have a significant share over the forecast period.

Pharmaceutical Logistics Market Analysis by Component

In 2021, the storage segment will have a market share of more than 64.0%. The rapidly increasing demand for generic and branded pharmaceutical products has created a significant need for storage facilities to preserve and procure the efficacy of these products after production, as well as their subsequent distribution through multiple channels to distributors and retailers.

The monitoring components segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR from 2022 to 2028, owing to the increasing need to ensure the efficiency, integrity, and safety of the cold chain products. Monitoring components are classified as either hardware or software. Over the forecast period, the transportation segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace.

Sea freight logistics, air freight logistics, and overland logistics are subsets of the transportation segment. Because sea freight logistics services can handle sensitive large molecule biologics and personalized medicines, increasing adoption of sea-based pharmaceutical logistics is driving the growth of the pharmaceutical logistics market.
