Recyclable Cold Chain Packaging Market: An Overview

Choosing efficient and effective packaging considering the cost and compliance is a crucial factor. Technological advancement in manufacturing and product development made recyclable cold chain packaging a highly competitive, more manageable, and economical solution.

Recyclable cold chain packaging is a packaging system for shipping goods from the manufacturing facility to the final destination with maintaining a consistent temperature. It involves complete and constant refrigeration of products during production, handling, storage, and transportation to retain their essential characteristics and value.

Different types of cold chain packaging protection are available to cater to the needs of each kind of product. The manufacturers can choose their shipping containers depending upon the level of packaging security is required. The temperature-sensitive products are vulnerable to losses during the shipping process. Hence, the cold chain thermal packaging can reduce product losses during shipping leading to higher customer satisfaction. Medical products such as vaccines, insulin, blood bank, medicines, and food products such as frozen foods, vegetables, dairy products, seafood and meats utilize insulated cold chain products.

Recyclable Cold Chain Packaging Market: Dynamics

The recyclable cold chain packaging with recyclable curb side packaging made from heavy duty Kraft paper and recycled paper fibers with insulated liners maintain the proper temperature. The recyclable cold chain packaging is considered as the best alternative to polystyrene or foil based bubble wrap form boxes, which are hard to dispose as compared to completely recyclable curbside thermal insulated shippers will strengthen the demand for recyclable cold chain packaging.

The recyclable cold chain packaging is the best option with eco-thermal liners, removing the bulky, heavy internal cooling material and reduce the weight and overall size of the packaging. Therefore, it is the best option for the consumer to easily recyclable at home to dispose of the packaging responsibly.

Many packaging materials which are packed and transported cannot be recycled and litter the landfills. Further growing the online sales, the delivery suppliers use extensive packaging material. Therefore, many environment-conscious manufacturers are concerned about minimizing or eliminating post-consumer packaging waste by using recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable products. Hence, the environment-friendly recyclable cold chain packaging will have remarkable growth.

For instance,

  • On 30th June 2020, Softbox Systems Ltd. launched Tempcell™ ECO packaging solution for the pharma cold chain. It is made from 100% corrugated cardboard material utilizing Thermaflute™ plastic-free patent-pending insulation technology. The corrugated cardboard is easily disposable and recyclable at the consumer end.

With the release of the Covid-19 vaccine, the complexity of vaccine storing and transporting at frozen, ultra-frozen, and refrigerated formulations has become the utmost priority. The objective is to transport safe, intact, and on-time delivery vaccines. The Covid-19 vaccines are wasted due to exposure to heat and broken vials during transportation. Therefore a temperature-controlled pharmaceutical recyclable cold chain packaging safeguards the integrity of the vaccine and keeps it safe, secure, and reliable. Pharmaceutical and food products are considered essential services as per Government regulations. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the cold chain supply packaging becomes highly crucial due to the safety and integrity of temperature-controlled products. In the Covid-19 pandemic, consumers focused on stockpiling of retail and food products and the evolution of e-commerce as a popular choice for temperature-sensitive food items delivery at home. Therefore food, beverages, and pharmaceutical products using recyclable cold chain packaging during Covid-19 will expect significant growth.
