We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect effect of the associated industries. These observations will further be integrated into the report.

Global Biopharmaceutical Third Party Logistics Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the exponential growth in the pharmaceutical industry. Additionally, the growing trend of outsourcing logistics by numerous medical organizations to optimize their distribution network is creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, the demand for 3PL has exponentially risen on account of the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to reduce the drug supply disruptions and ensure the availability of critical care drugs. Besides this, numerous technological innovations, such as the introduction of mobile cloud computing, warehouse robotics, real-time monitoring, and data mining solutions, are positively influencing the market growth. The newly introduced technologies assist in automating logistics-related procedures and reducing operation complexities, human errors, and damages that are caused to the products in transit. Moreover, the internet of things (IoT) and near field communication (NFC) based cold chain monitoring products are used to manage temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals and achieve real-time updates and alerts regarding the shipment. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 154.2 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
