IDC Market Glance: Sustainability and Transparency in the Cold Chain, 2Q22

On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Glance examines the cold chain market. It also provides a high-level representative view of the technology vendors in each of the categories presented. The categories shown summarize market segments that satisfy different stages of the cold chain, with consideration for sustainability and transparency and including tracking and tracing throughout the cold chain of assets and products, and cold chain needs such as packaging and testing, 3PLs, and autonomous last-mile delivery as well as integrators and consultants.

The past two years have seen a greater level of scrutiny on cold chains, drawing particular attention for their role in moving vaccines, sometimes at extremely low temperatures, as was required for the Pfizer vaccine.

The cold chain, as a subsegment of the supply chain, is subject to all of the same challenges, such as lack of visibility into and connectivity from node to node, but the cold chain's unique requirements for end-to-end refrigerated environments and consistent temperatures present an additional host of challenges and potential points of failure. In addition, cold chains are more costly, as the cold chain is energy intensive and requires a greater degree of precision. Mismanaged cold chains can be a particularly onerous drain on the bottom line. They are also antithetical to sustainable operations.
