Global Cold Chain Industry Overview
The cold chain industry is increasingly adopting IoT to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of supply chains. IoT sends real-time notifications about the condition of products to enterprises and allows them to remotely control and monitor the temperature settings of the vehicle or warehouse. Moreover, by allowing enterprises to focus on descriptive and predictive analytics, IoT helps in maintaining the quality and integrity of food and medicines throughout the transportation or storing process. Restaurant owners can also ensure proper food safety procedures by accurately monitoring the temperature of food storage facilities through IoT. These benefits of IoT have encouraged market vendors to integrate IoT solutions with cold chain. The increasing use of IoT with cold chain has been identified as one of the critical cold chain market trends fueling market growth in the coming years.
Trade corridors are integrated transport networks that are designed to stimulate economic development by connecting cities or countries through integrated infrastructures, such as railroads and highways. Several countries and regions are investing heavily in trade corridors to generate economic benefits and aid in development, such as economic growth, jobs, reduce poverty, and economic resilience. Enterprises use these economic corridors to transport perishable and temperature-sensitive products, such as fruits, vegetables, and fish across borders. The increasing number of trade corridors will boost the demand for refrigerated transportation, consequently fueling the growth of the cold chain market at a CAGR of almost 15% during the forecast period.
