Global Biopharmaceutical Logistics Market: Segmentation

Based on type, the global biopharmaceutical logistics market has been segmented into cold chain logistics and non-cold chain logistics. Although the overall pharmaceutical market has more products requiring non-cold chain based logistics transport, the market for cold chain is witnessing a higher growth rate owing to the rise in manufacture and transport of biologic drugs and those drugs which require temperature controlled shipping.

The principal modes of transportation for biopharmaceutical logistics include air shipping, sea shipping, road shipping and rail shipping. New regulations in the U.S., the European Union, and elsewhere, has radically lengthened the list of drugs requiring temperature-controlled handling. Specifically, new rules for handling products that fall into the controlled ambient (15 to 25 degrees C) category has upsurged the demand for temperature controlled handling. This has led to many pharmaceutical companies resorting to air shipping for such critical products. However, concerns over cost containment has led to the trend of increased preference for transporting pharmaceuticals by sea and road, wherever possible.
