Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102830 | Status : Ongoing



Cold chain packaging systems are designed to hold temperature-sensitive payloads at the right temperature. There are three main types of cold chain packaging systems: active, passive, and hybrid. A cold chain is a supply chain which is regulated by temperature. This is a series of activities that maintain the desired low temperature, such as refrigerated output, storage, and distribution. The cold chain is a continuous sequence of storage and distribution operations that sustain a given range of temperatures. It is used to help prolong and protect product shelf-life. It is very important because medicinal products lose their potency over time, particularly if they are exposed to heat, and some even lose their potency when they are frozen. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) and polyurethane (PUR), are the most widely used thermal packaging materials.

Growing demand in the defense sector for temperature-transport of pharmaceuticals, and food, such as specilaity druds, tissue, and blood is expected to boost the cold chain packaging materials market. Environmental issues related to the packaging waste are driving demand for recyclable materials is likely to create opportubties for the market. Emerging developments in recycling technology are expected to raise demand for cold chain packaging materials to achieve higher value from recyclate and increase the use of recycled waste in packaging. The increase in demand for perishable food products, the growth of foreign trade as a result of trade liberalization, and the expansion of the organized food retail sector are some of the factors which is anticipated to drive the market. In addition, growing demand of online grocery coupled with increasing internet penetration and the resulting increase in the number of tech-savvy consumers is boosting the growth of cold chain packaging which in turn is projected to boost the market. Sales of processed food items, for example, are contributing considerably to the growth of the market. Growing tough regulations such as the successful implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act against a cold storage warehouse requirement for food safety is one of the main drivers of the  market. Additionally, the growing demand from various industrial applications such as, pharmaceutical industries, medical devices, and others are the majorly driving the market.

Key Market Driver -

Growing demand from food and pharmaceutical industry is likley to drive the market.

Key Market Restraint -

Volatily in raw material price restraining the growth

The rising raw material prices are one of the main challenges in the cold chain packaging industry. Polystyrene is the main raw material used in packaging solutions for the cold chain packaging. Recently, due to the increased difference between demand and supply, volatility in polystyrene prices has risen the price and is likely to continue during the forecast period. In addition, the increased cost of raw materials further increases the total cost of the finished product.
