Temperature Controlled Packaging for Pharmaceutical Market Trends



  • Growing demand for fresh and frozen foods to boost market growth


The government's implementation of tight rules and regulations is anticipated to increase the efficiency of how pharmaceutical products are distributed. For instance, the Food & Drug Administration (US), Regulation 21 CFR 211.150 "Distribution procedures," states that pharmaceutical products must be shipped within appropriate temperatures and under accurate conditions in accordance with requirements. In addition, the regulation specifies that appropriate manual, electromechanical, or electronic temperature and humidity recording equipment, devices, and/or logs shall be used to document proper storage of prescription drugs.


Containerized cargo volumes at the Port of Mobile are expected to increase in 2021 as shippers look for uncrowded ports serving important North American markets. August saw a 34% rise in container volume via the Port compared to August 2020, while year-to-date tonnage saw a 27% increase. Part of that achievement may be attributed to a 37% rise in refrigerated containers as a result of the Port's almost $74 million investment in refrigerated facilities to serve cold cargo supply chains.


The market for temperature-controlled packaging solutions for pharmaceuticals is anticipated to rise as a result of expanding research and development initiatives around the world aimed at improving the manufacturing and packaging processes in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Along with pharmaceutical materials, the growing development of innovative medications and therapies such stem cells, r-proteins, and monoclonal antibodies has increased the demand for cold chain packaging systems at different phases of product development, driving market expansion. Therefore, such factors are enhanced the Temperature Controlled Packaging for Pharmaceutical market CAGR across the globe in the recent years.

Credo Cargo Pallet Shipper System, a reusable bulk shipper featuring cutting-edge slot-in components for simple loading and unloading, was introduced by Pelican Biothermal.


Temperature Controlled Packaging for Pharmaceutical Type Insights


The  temperature controlled packaging for pharmaceutical market segmentation, based on type, includes active systems and passive systems. The temperature controlled packaging for pharmaceutical market's active system segment is the largest by type. Active containers include active temperature control, which uses electric cooling or dry ice to keep the temperature inside the container within a set range. When compared to a passive system, the active system offers the maximum level of temperature accuracy. A costly alternative that offers a steady temperature for long-distance shipping is the active system. The supply chain delay can be effectively managed by the system. The presence of a power supply reduces the likelihood of temperature excursions. The active systems will be driven by the expanding transportation of bulk volume payload of medicinal items that require certain temperatures. Hence, the increasing number of shipping containers are anticipated to aids the market growth.
