Market Highlights:

Cold chain monitoring is defined as the process of planning, implementing and controlling, effective flow and storage of perishable goods, from point of origin to the point of production, distribution and consumption in order to temperature controlled supply chain (often called cold chain). It is a solution equipped with various sensors that can be used to transmit the data about the freshness of any frozen foods or pharmaceutical products. This system helps the logistic companies to monitor the condition of the product and take necessary actions so as to reduce losses.

For monitoring activities, organizations deploy various components which include hardware devices, software and services. Cold chain monitoring also deals with transportation of products along a supply chain that must be maintained within a certain temperature range to uphold the integrity. This type of supply chain monitoring system are widely being used by chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries for monitoring activities with the help of various hardware & software devices such as RFID devices, sensors, networking devices, telemetry & telematics. Cold chain monitoring across the end-to-end supply chain plays a vital role. The pharmaceuticals strong pipeline for personalised medicines and preserving fresh food in controlled temperatures are important across the supply chain.

Owing to increase in need for refrigeration in pharmaceuticals, food & beverages are driving the market. The market for food & beverages is expected to grow at highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to growing need for refrigeration in pharmaceutical sector and rising demand for fresh food and need to reduce food wastage.
