The global Biopharmaceutical Third Party Logistics market size was valued at US$ 94.6 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The rising trend of outsourcing logistics, the focus of pharmaceutical players on their distribution network owing to its strong sales numbers, and the rise in the number of biosimilar launches are some of the key factors driving the market.

These advanced vehicles are designed to automate and provide temperature control systems during transportation that help in reducing complexities, human error, and damage to products in transit. Thus, these monitoring solutions allow visibility that can converse breaches through automatic alerts by providing information to execute contingency plans.

Pharmaceutical products are often temperature-sensitive, which require monitoring up to the stage of delivery through a tracking device. For instance, Onset, a supplier of monitoring solutions and data loggers introduced the InTemp CX400 series mobile app for its pharmaceutical cold chain monitoring products. The app allows users to view temperature data from CX400 loggers and set alarms from their mobile devices to get notifications regarding temperature excursions. The company recently announced its availability for Android devices.

The demand for outsourcing transportation services has grown significantly over the last few years. Outsourcing transportation services for distributing pharmaceutical drugs has reduced the overheads of giant pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, the big biopharma companies are either agreeing or are outsourcing to 3PL service providers to reduce the overall operating cost to promote lean management and application of six sigma in their business operations.

This is thus expected to boost the market over the forecast period. The 3PL service providers are investing a lot in providing value-added services is another key market driver. For instance, Expeditors, a service-based provider of value-added services ranging from simple to complex, offers a range of logistics delivery models that enhance customer services while mitigating transportation and inventory costs.

North America dominated the biopharmaceutical third-party logistics (3PL) market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 41.5% in 2020. This is majorly attributed to the dominance of the region in the biologics and pharmaceutical drugs market and an increase in exports and imports for biopharmaceuticals. Furthermore, owing to high healthcare expenditure, the adoption of advanced technologies is quite high in the region. Thus, for the improvement of warehousing and transportation, North America based pharmaceutical companies are relying more on 3PL services providers, which is driving the regional growth. Additionally, the presence of major players is also responsible for the growth of the market for biopharmaceutical third-party logistics (3PL) in the region.

In Asia Pacific, the market for biopharmaceutical third-party logistics (3PL) witnessed the second largest revenue of USD 15.4 billion in 2020 and is also expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period. Growing demand for medicines among the aging population, adoption of technologically advanced services, and growing economic conditions in emerging countries such as China and India are among the few factors responsible for its fastest growth rate.
