New York, May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “Cold Chain Logistics Market for Vaccines : Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2021-2030” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06076412/?utm_source=GNW
In some countries, about 80% of the drugs are estimated to lose their potency due to inadequate temperature control during their cold chain transportation. For some vaccines, even the slightest variations in temperature / storage conditions can adversely alter product integrity and / or viability. In this context, it is worth mentioning that there are several vaccines being developed against COVID-19; given the nature of the pathogen, these aforementioned product candidates are likely to be cold chain dependent. For example, the synthetic mRNA-based COVID vaccine being developed by Pfizer (which is, so far, the most promising candidate) is required to be stored at -70°C (-94°F) or lower. This fundamentally complicates the use and cold chain distribution for vaccines in temperate / equatorial regions, where distances between populated regions are vast and a proper cold chain infrastructure is lacking. Other healthcare products that need to be shipped / stored under low temperatures include aerosols, blood plasma, and certain diagnostics kits.

Considering the projected growth of the global population, it is likely that the demand for vaccines will indubitably increase. Consequently, well-defined cold chain infrastructure and established vaccine supply networks are crucial to the success of global level immunization initiatives. This is also true for all vaccination programs for COVID-19, which is an immediate and exigent concern. In other words, the biggest challenge in cold chain logistics is lack of / inadequate infrastructure to support the cold chain storage and / or transportation of vaccines. Moreover, connected cold chain solutions have been observed to offer a variety of advantages over conventional methodologies, such as automation of most of the steps and elimination of human handling errors that are associated with human intervention.

Over time, there has been significant consolidation in this industry, with stakeholders expanding their respective facilities / capabilities, and also making strategic acquisitions to better serve their growing clientele. Further, the logistics service providers are focused on devising and implementing flexible business strategies and technical advancements in order to cope with increased inflow of patients. The countries are also preparing for sustainable cold chain storage and distribution / supply of COVID-19 vaccine to different parts of globe, as the reliance on cold chain facilities for coronavirus vaccine is expected to increase substantially.
