Growing popularity of various solutions apropos to temperature-controlled packaging across several industrial applications continue to influence demand for cold chain packaging materials. Since last couple of decades, companies faced an era of hardships and witnessed a highly competitive marketplace. Against this backdrop, they pursued much sought-after packaging techniques, for instance cold chain packaging, in order to carry out efficient delivery and at the same time reduce the packaging costs.

Need for Efficient Transportation of Temperature-Sensitive Drug Formulations in the Pharmaceutical Sector to Augment Demand

Momentous upswing in the pharmaceutical sector is expected to complement the growth of the cold chain packaging materials market. According to analysis of International Air Transport Association (IATA), approximately a loss worth US$2.5 Bn to US$12 Bn is registered each year owing to temperature problems during transit in the pharmaceutical sector. This triggered the need for temperature-controlled packaging technology, particularly for drugs and other formulations, which fuelled the demand for cold chain packaging materials. In addition, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for cold chain packaging was significantly elevated as formulations used in development of drugs for the virus required temperature-sensitive packaging. This further augmented growth of the cold chain packaging materials market. Also, regulatory authorities of several countries have laid strict guidelines and comply with good distribution practices (GDP) which is expected to add fuel to the pace of cold chain packaging materials market growth.

Food Delivery Service Industry to Play a Vital Role in Cold Chain Packaging Materials Market

Cold chain packaging solutions play a vital role in food deliveries by securing food quality during transportation to longer distances. This technique of packaging is used in the food logistics space in a bid to shun wastage of food products alongside protecting food quality and life. Moreover, busy lifestyle of individuals has given an impetus to online food delivery that enables consumers to get food delivery as per their schedule and place. Additionally, increasing awareness regarding healthy lifestyle has further pushed individuals to consume fresh and diet friendly food. This is poised to drive demand for temperature-controlled packaging solutions, in turn complementing the cold chain packaging materials market growth. With this background use of cold chain packaging for delivery of food as well as frozen and processed poultry products is likely to auger well for the market.

EPS Adoption Poised to Grow Significantly Thus Offering Stability in Growth of Cold Chain Packaging Materials Market

Demand for expanded polystyrene (EPS) is poised to increase at a significant rate in the coming years on the back of its perceived benefits in cold chain packaging. EPS is usually used in packaging of sea food products, meat and pharmaceutical drugs and formulations. Advantages of EPS such as light weight and cost-efficient thermal insulation coupled with higher durability quotient has pushed its adoption in packaging goods requiring uniform control of temperature. In addition, EPS reduced microbial growth making it an apt cold chain packaging material for food products with low shelf life. That said, rising adoption of EPS in packaging is poised to significantly contribute to the valuation of the cold chain packaging materials market in the years to follow.

North America to Reign Supreme in Cold Chain Packaging Materials Market; Europe Likely to Follow Suit

Adoption of cold chain packaging across developed economies in North America has been witnessing an upswing since the recent past and is likely to maintain status quo in the coming years. This is mainly attributed toward use of cold chain packaging in pharmaceuticals and food and beverage industries coupled with rising technological advances and established supply chains in the region. Favourable government regulations, trade policies, end use market scenario, subsidies and significant tax benefits are few of the macro-economical aspects that are encouraging new players in the cold chain packaging materials market to tap the region, in turn balancing demand and supply.

Europe, on the other hand, is expected to be second in terms of market valuation for cold chain packaging materials. Growth of the cold chain packaging materials market in Europe can be attributed towards changing temperature profiles across countries driving need for temperature-controlled packaging. Additionally, increasing inclination of consumers and governments in North America and Europe towards sustainable and pocket friendly packaging solutions is further expected to bolster growth of the cold chain packaging materials market.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
