The patent expiration of many innovative drugs by the end of 2017 is one of the market drivers for pharmaceutical logistics. This will increase the volume of pharmaceutical products as a large number of biopharma replica of these drugs will come into the market. The rise in volume of pharmaceutical products will positively affect the revenue for the pharmaceutical logistics players as the charge of transportation is decided based on the volume of goods and distance traveled.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global pharmaceutical logistics market is highly fragmented with a substantial number of small and big players. These players are competing in terms of providing secure pharmaceutical supply chain functions and cloud-based supply chain solutions. The pharmaceutical manufacturers segment is the only customer segment for this market. The global pharmaceutical manufacturers segment is also equally fragmented as the global pharmaceutical logistics market.

“The growing population and economic conditions in some parts of the world will increase the end-user consumption of pharmaceutical products, which, in turn, will boost the growth of both the global pharmaceutical market and the global pharmaceutical logistics market. The developed countries, such as the US and the UK, are matured markets for pharmaceutical logistics players,” says Raj Kumar, a lead logistics research analyst from Technavio.

The product diversification of pharmaceutical players is the major concern for 3PL logistics players. As the pharmaceutical products are constantly evolving, these evaluations will repeatedly change the product portfolio of pharmaceutical players. The frequent changes in the product portfolio will affect the efficiency of the 3PL players as each product requires a separate type of transportation and storage.
