December 07, 2021 | Transportation and Logistics

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Asia Pacific Cold Chain Market Report by Service Type (Refrigerated Storage, Refrigerated Transport), Temperature (Chilled, Frozen), End User (Food and Beverages , Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the Asia Pacific cold chain market size reached US$ 166.3 Billion in 2023. A cold chain is a supply chain network comprising refrigerated storage, production and distribution facilities. Besides this, it is equipped with a device that is utilized to constantly maintain the required low-temperature range. This storage system aids in managing the temperature of perishable products in order to maintain safety and quality from the point of origin through the distribution chain to the final consumer. Some of the common cold chain products include vegetables, meats, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, reagents, flowers and plants, seafood and dairy goods. With the growing number of organized retail stores, there has been significant growth in the demand for cold chain systems across the Asia Pacific region.

Asia Pacific Cold Chain Market Trends:

The market in the Asia Pacific is primarily driven by the rising product demand from the pharmaceutical industry. This can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of numerous acute illnesses and fatal infections among the masses, along with the growing geriatric population across the region. With the rapid outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the demand for cold chain supply chain networks has rapidly increased, further catalyzing the market. In addition to this, extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players for introducing novel drugs and treatment methods are major driving factors. Apart from this, the growing investments by private and public agencies to upgrade the overall healthcare infrastructure are creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, continual developments in the food and beverage industry and the proliferation of quick service restaurants (QSRs) and food joints are significantly supporting the demand for cold chains. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, the emerging e-commerce sector, intensive business competition and continuous advancements in cold chain technology, are also positively influencing the market across the Asia Pacific. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 477.0 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 12% during 2024-2032.
