Entry of Biosimilars will Expand the Demand of Cold Chain Logistic Services

A New Report from IMARC Group expects the growth of the biosimilar market to expand the demand of cold chain logistic services in the coming years.
Noida, Uttar pardesh, India ( 28/11/2011
Biosimilars or generic versions of branded biological drugs are currently at a nascent stage with their 2010 sales being worth US$ 200 Million. This market, however, is expected to explode in the next few years. Driven by an increasing number of branded biologicals facing patent expiry, the combined sales of biosimilars in the US and major European markets is expected to exceed values worth US$ 8 Billion by 2016.

IMARC Group in its latest study entitled “Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast (2011-2016)” finds that the increasing growth of the biosimilar market is expected to expand the demand of cold chain logistic services in the coming years. Findings from the report suggest that biosimilars are expected to cost 20% - 60% less than their branded counterparts and, as a result, will become more affordable for both patients and healthcare providers. The study expects the entry of biosimilars to expand the overall patient pool of these drugs and thereby increasing their overall shipment volumes. Findings also suggested that a number of key biosimilar manufactures are expected to be based in Asian Countries. Since the manufacturing facilities of these companies will be based in Asia and their end user markets in the US and Europe, the study expect a significant increase of biopharmaceutical exports between these regions.

IMARC’s report entitled “Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast (2011-2016)” provides an analytical and statistical insight into the logistic opportunities in the global healthcare market. The study that has been undertaken using both desk based as well as qualitative primary market research has analyzed three aspects of the global healthcare cold chain logistics market.
