A reefer container is a refrigerated container used in intermodal freight transport in the pharmaceutical industry. It is most widely used for transporting medicines and biological samples (for analysis), vaccines, and blood and its derivatives. A rise in international trade and ease of navigation, and less terminal turnaround time are a few of the prominent factors contributing to the demand for reefer containers in the pharmaceutical industry. Developments in technologies for reefer containers are further bolstering the demand for cold chain facilities. Pharmaceutical reefer units can control the temperature of products and allow shippers to monitor their shipments throughout the journey. These containers are also equipped with sensors to detect small temperature variations and determine if the products are exposed to light, which could trigger alterations in the compositions of certain pharmaceuticals.

The increasing number of geriatric populations; growing spending on pharmaceutical products; changing lifestyle habits leading to obesity, diabetes, and other costly health conditions; and rising investments in R&D capabilities are among the major factors contributing to the huge demand for pharmaceutical products across the world. Also, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has fueled the demand for these products, which underlines the need for transportation activities that play an essential role in ensuring the reach of products to consumers. The increased R&D in the pharmaceutical companies has consequently increased the number of vaccines and other drugs synthesized which needs to be stored at appropriate temperatures to maintain viability. Most pharmaceutical products are temperature-sensitive, and therefore, they must be stored and transported in a controlled environment, to maintain their efficacy and safety, which triggers the need for reefer containers.
According to the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science data published in July 2019, the biopharma industry loses ~US$ 35 billion per year owing to failures in temperature-controlled logistics. Such incidents have created a need for proper temperature-controlled transportation methods, such as reefer containers, to prevent shipment losses. Moreover, with improvements in reefer container technologies and a decrease in the cost of shipping, several pharmaceutical players have started trading overseas to enhance their revenue performances. As per the recent UN study, the population of the 65+ age group is set to rise from 9% to 16% globally, and the population of individuals aged 80 and above is projected to triple by 2050. The incidence of diabetes and many other chronic diseases is expected to surge in several developing markets. As per the International Diabetes Federation, ~537 million adults (20–79 years of age) were living with diabetes in 2021. Also, the total number of people living with diabetes is projected to rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045. Moreover, this number is rising more rapidly in low- and middle-income countries. Thus, the burgeoning need for pharmaceutical products, with the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, is further strengthening the reefer containers for pharmaceutical market.
