Temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products are the future of the healthcare industry. The demand for cold chain logistics services globally is currently experiencing a robust growth. According to a report by IMARC, the total size of the healthcare cold chain logistics services market is expected to expand from its current USD 7.3 billion to almost USD 11.4 billion by 2018. This growth is being led by increased sales in temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products. Among those witnessing a boom is the Middle East and North Africa region. With an increasing population, the demand for temperature sensitive healthcare products in the region is on the rise.

Governments especially in the GCC are allocating huge budgets to provide high quality healthcare services to all its residents. With nearly 80% of pharmaceuticals that are imported from foreign countries, managing the cold chain becomes a complex process and needs an efficient packaging, storage and transportation system. With the warmer climates in the region, technology becomes apparent in managing such temperature-sensitive products. To overcome this, technologies have to be adopted at all stages of the supply chain to ensure that the perfect temperature of the shipment is maintained and managed throughout.

MENA Pharmaceutical Cold Chain 2014 will engage local and regional stakeholders and highlight the region’s cold chain practises. The forum will bridge the important links in the ecosystem with the objective of creating a superior integrated cold chain network. MENA Pharmaceutical Cold Chain 2014 will feature case studies, presentations and interactive discussions on how to overcome various challenges in handling temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products and highlight latest technologies used to protect the products and offer safety to end users.
