The cold chain packaging market involves transporting and storing temperature-sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals, food, and chemicals in thermally insulated packaging along the supply chain between manufacturing and end use to extend shelf life. Cold chain packaging ensures safety and quality of products by enabling products to be stored and distributed at recommended temperatures with strict temperature monitoring and control. This has become increasingly important as manufacturing and consumption points have separated geographically requiring international and intercontinental logistics. The global cold chain packaging market plays a vital role in reducing losses due to damage or spoilage and ensures uninterrupted supply of quality products.
The global Cold Chain Packaging Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 31.04 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
Active and intelligent packaging is gaining increasing traction in the cold chain packaging industry. These types of packages monitor factors like temperature, humidity, shock, gas concentration etc during transit and storage. They are equipped with sensors, tags, and tracking devices that provide real-time data on physical conditions experienced by packages. This allows identifying problems early and taking corrective actions. Big data generated from these packages helps optimize logistics, cold chain infrastructure and ensure highest product quality. Technologies like RFIDs and sensors integrated with IoT and cloud computing are ushering a new era of digitally connected cold chain ecosystem.
Threat of new entrants: New entrants face high capital requirements to enter this market due to expensive machinery and equipment needed for cold chain packaging.
