According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Cold Chain Monitoring Market is accounted for $5.3 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $14.7 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 18.5% during the forecast period. Cold chain monitoring solutions are designed to track and monitor products throughout the storage and transportation cycles. They can track temperature-sensitive products, such as processed food, frozen food items, and other eatables, in real time. At this juncture, the growing trade of perishable products across the developed and developing economies bodes well for the growth of the market. Advances in connected devices technologies, such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and the Internet of Things (IoT), is also expected to open opportunities for the development of innovative cold chain monitoring solutions.

According to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), in May 2021, the Japanese government has provided approximately 210 million KES to UNICEF to boost Kenya's cold chain capability for the rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations as part of a USD 11 million donation to 11 countries in the East and Southern African region.

Market Dynamics:


Raising demand for temperature sensitive-drugs

Drugs that require specific temperature ranges in order to maintain chemical stability, such as vaccines, are becoming more and more popular. Global demand for heat-sensitive medical items is increasing, including those for pharmaceuticals, vaccines, insulin, derived blood products, and oncology treatments. The growing demand for pharmaceutical products, particularly in developing countries, is expected to drive the growth of the market.


High cost of implementation

Cold chain monitoring system installation is incredibly expensive. Costly expenses are involved in setting up the connecting network and deploying the sensors. It costs a lot of money to transport high-value cargo across long distances while keeping it within the appropriate temperature range. Cost is the major hindering factor to introducing real-time cold chain monitoring systems.


Better control of assets in warehouses

Several temperature zones can be seen in a large warehouse. As a result, it's crucial to continuously monitor the temperature of storage areas as well as the actual state of the commodities being stored there. Warehouse automation aids efficient storage space utilization, reduces wear and tear, increases reliability, and reduces operating costs are the factors enhancing the growth of the market.


Complexities involved in the installation and monitoring

The significant rise in customer expectations has made cold chain monitoring even more difficult. Customer options and the complexity of multi-sourcing supply chains have both expanded as a result of globalisation. To optimise the profit, this data must also be examined and actionable data must be produced. As a result, issues like scale visualisation, identifying the type of fault, and developing solutions could be difficult.

Covid-19 Impact

COVID-19 is an unprecedented global public health emergency that affected almost every industry, and the long-term impacts are projected to reflect on the growth of various end-use industries during the forecast period. The pandemic hit the global economy at large and has created unprecedented turmoil and change for individuals and organizations across the world. The pandemic has led to the closure of workplaces, restrictions on travel, and the creation of the work-from-home option for almost all employees, which has created challenges for businesses to operate.

The software segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The software segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to the temperature, humidity, pressure, and others are easily trackable with the help of sensors. The pharmaceutical supply chain has experienced tremendous expansion as a result of the use of cloud-based supply chain monitoring tools. As a result, the contemporary, flexible, end-to-end supply chain enabled by cloud-based cold chain monitoring software is more dependable.

The pharmaceuticals segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The pharmaceuticals segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the stringent regulatory standards applicable in various parts of the world to ensure safe and secure storage and transport of pharmaceutical products. Several pharmaceuticals and medications have a propensity to be extremely temperature-sensitive. As a result, supply chain managers are using cold chain monitoring solutions in particular while keeping and shipping pharmaceutical products.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to increasing demand for chilled and frozen food products. Refrigerated transport and storage are included in the infrastructure for cold chain monitoring. The rising imports and exports of exotic vegetables, fruits, and dairy products are being driven by the rising demand for dairy goods, vegetables, and fruits, which is also driving up the demand for cold chain monitoring systems.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the rising chemical industry. The expansion can be ascribed to various factors, including the sudden rise in pharmaceutical products and other medical necessities. Governments are taking initiatives for cold chain monitoring logistics. Also, the increasing urbanization and demand for high-quality food products are a major reason for the rapid expansion.
