Biopharmaceutical Logistics Market Experiencing Robust Growth

Published on Apr 16, 2015

Strong biopharmaceutical sales, temperature sensitivity, biosimilar launches and increasing outsourcing trends are expected to be the catalysts in driving the global biopharmaceutical logistics market in the coming years. Research firm IMARC Group expects this market to experience double digit growth rates during 2014-2018, according to its latest report titled “Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast: 2013-2018”. The report which has done a comprehensive analysis on the cold chain requirements and opportunities for healthcare products expects the global biopharmaceutical market to reach sales worth USD 177 billion by 2018, creating a huge demand for cold chain logistic services.

According to an analyst at IMARC Group, “Outsourcing trends in the biopharmaceutical industry are increasing with more and more manufacturers outsourcing the manufacturing of their drugs to third parties. The trends in outsourcing are expected to increase even further among smaller biopharmaceutical companies who typically find that biopharmaceutical manufacturing and process development are not a part of their existing core competencies. The increasing trends in biopharmaceutical outsourcing creates an additional step in the overall supply chain of these drugs. In many cases, contract manufacturers and their partners may be present in two different countries; this creates huge requirements for the efficient cold chain packaging, storage and transportation of drugs between the pharmaceutical company and its contract manufacturer”.

IMARC’s new report entitled “Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast (2013-2018)”, which is the third edition of our highly acclaimed publication, provides a comprehensive insight into the logistic opportunities in the global healthcare market. The study, that has been undertaken using both desk based and qualitative primary market research, has analyzed three aspects of the global healthcare cold chain logistics market.
