Cold chain monitoring market for pharmaceutical & healthcare application to hold the largest share in 2019
Monitoring the temperature is a critical factor in the pharmaceuticals and healthcare cold chain. The specific temperature requirement varies according to the specific pharmaceutical product. The potency of drugs or vaccines tends to degrade in the case of temperature variations encountered in the supply chain. Moreover, the value chain of the pharmaceuticals and healthcare industry has a significant impact of government regulations, which facilitates the adoption of cold chain monitoring solutions across the value chain.
Cold chain monitoring market for transportation to grow at higher CAGR between 2018 and 2023
The high growth of the transportation segment is driven by the growing distribution network of the cold chain. Nowadays, cold chains have become vital for modern supply chain solutions, transporting larger volumes of more sensitive or vital cargo over greater distances through diverse climatic conditions. Being prone to environmental variations, cargo needs to be maintained at a specific temperature or within an acceptable temperature range, which is also driving the growth of the market for the transportation segment.
Americas to hold largest share of cold chain monitoring market in 2018
The Americas is the largest market for cold chain monitoring. The Americas to hold the largest share of the global cold chain monitoring market in 2018. Pharmaceuticals and healthcare is expected to continue to account for the largest size of the cold chain monitoring market in the Americas in the next few years. Various pharmaceutical companies supplying numerous drugs that require cold chain monitoring solutions are based in the country.
