Passive Temperature Controlled Packaging Market Trends




  • Reusable passive packaging methods boost market growth.




Market CAGR for passive temperature controlled packaging is driven by the reusable passive packaging methods. Demand for these systems is the fact that passive temperature controlled packaging can also be recycled. It gives capability for reverse logistics with only a few tweaks and enhancements to the passive temperature-controlled packaging. The supplier is given the chance to repackage and redistribute products as a result. Manufacturers now frequently use reusable containers for business reasons due to a variety of factors. It is expected that throughout the anticipated period, the market expansion will be supported by the special reusability feature supplied by passive temperature controlled packaging.


The expansion of the cold chain packaging market is primarily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry because to the increased transit of temperature-sensitive goods. For vaccines, infusions/injections, biologics, hormones, insulin, antibiotics, cellular therapies, reagents, treatments for chronic or rare diseases, and other products, pharmaceutical packaging comprises containers, pallet shippers, vacuum insulated panels, crates, boxes, and others. When subjected to quite high temperatures, certain items may lose some of their qualities. To maintain product quality, specialised thermal packing and transportation technologies are required.


According to IQVIA's Pharmaceutical Commerce Analysis for 2018, cold chain (including products and transportation) amounts for around 18% of overall pharma spend. In addition, the growth of cold chain solutions in the pharmaceutical business is twofold that of non-cold chain solutions.


Furthermore, increased worldwide trade of pharmaceutical products is driving up need for cold chain packaging to safely transport the medicines across long distances. Emerging economies in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa are investing extensively in the pharmaceutical industry and infrastructure development, which is expected to drive demand even higher. Cold packaging is more widely used in the pharmaceutical industry than in other industries due to its numerous benefits. As a result, increased demand from the pharmaceutical industry is propelling market expansion.
