Delhi, India (PressExposure) November 29, 2012 -- Robust vaccine sales, temperature sensitivity, global immunization programs and increasing exports are expected to be the catalysts in driving the global vaccine logistic services market in the coming years. Research firm IMARC Group expects this market to experience double digit growth rates during 2012-2017, according to its latest report titled "Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast: 2012-2017". The report which has done a comprehensive analysis on the cold chain requirements and opportunities for healthcare products expects the global vaccine market to exceed sales worth USD 44 billion by 2017, creating a huge demand for cold chain logistic services. According to an analyst at IMARC Group, "vaccine production is concentrated, whereas its consumption is diversified across the world. As a result, the global vaccine supply chain involves a lot of movement with exports from only a few manufacturing countries and imports around the world. The extensive transport of vaccines around the globe is currently creating huge opportunities for logistic services providers".
The report, an updated and far more analytical version of our popular 2011 study, found that vaccines are highly temperature sensitive and must be stored and transported at well defined temperatures. The ideal storage and transportation temperatures of vaccines range from 2-8Â°C. Any failure in the cold chain distribution of vaccines can render them useless and even worse can lead to serious health problems to the patient that is being administered that drug. Cold chain breaks in the storage and transportation of vaccines in the past has led to their huge wastage in various immunization programmes. It is estimated that around 25% of all vaccines arrive at their final destination in a degraded state.
The study, that has been undertaken using both desk based and qualitative primary market research, has analyzed three aspects of the global healthcare cold chain logistics market. The first aspect involves the quantification of the global market for temperature sensitive healthcare products into three major classes and evaluation of the current and future opportunities in each of these classes. The second aspect involves an in-depth understanding on the global healthcare cold chain distribution process and logistic requirements for various temperature sensitive healthcare products. The third aspect involves the quantification of the global healthcare cold chain logistic services market and a comprehensive evaluation of its various segments.
