UAE Cold Chain Logistics Market

UAE Cold Chain Logistics Market – Overview

Cold chain logistics refers to the management of temperature-sensitive products, such as perishable foods, pharmaceuticals, and vaccines, throughout the supply chain. It involves the use of temperature-controlled facilities, equipment, and transportation to maintain product integrity and safety from the point of origin to the point of consumption. The cold chain starts from the manufacturer or producer and includes storage, transportation, and distribution until the final destination. The temperature is carefully monitored and maintained at a specific level throughout the cold chain, and any deviations can result in product degradation, spoilage, or even harm to consumers. Effective cold chain logistics is crucial for ensuring product quality, safety, and efficacy.

UAE Cold Chain Logistics Market

Growth Drivers

Expanding Food and Beverages Sector

The UAE cold chain logistics market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the projected period, owing to the rising demand for fresh and frozen goods in the country. With greater disposable income and a larger workforce, more people are looking for high-quality food goods that require secure temperature control throughout shipping and storage. This has resulted in an increase in demand for cold chain logistics services which enable the safe and efficient transportation of perishable commodities from manufacturers to retailers and end users.

Restraints

High Installation and Maintenance Cost of Cold Chain Storages & Transportation

The exorbitant initial investment required for cold chain logistics development, as well as the significant overhead expenses associated with its upkeep, is a key impediment to the UAE cold chain logistics market. The total cost of construction of such a unit is roughly USD 33,300, but a basement unit has an initial cost of more than USD 50,000. The location of a warehouse has a considerable impact on the cost of constructing a cold storage facility. Building a cold storage facility in an urban region is often more expensive than in a rural area.

Impact of COVID-19 on the UAE Cold Chain Logistics Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic proliferated the growth of the UAE cold chain logistics market. The market gained significant traction in medical supplies and the pharmaceutical industry. The rising demand for healthcare products, such as vaccinations and medical supplies, raised the demand for temperature-controlled storage and delivery. The pandemic also brought to light the significance of maintaining a strong and effective cold chain infrastructure to protect the safety and efficacy of vaccinations and other temperature-sensitive items. As a result, the UAE government has invested in the country's cold chain infrastructure, including the construction of new facilities and the upgrade of existing ones.
