US demand for insulated shipping containers is forecast to increase 3.5% per year to $945 million in 2024. Sales gains will be supported by:

  • increasingly exacting expectations for the handling of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals and medical supplies
  • rising online sales of meal kits and other perishable food and beverage items

Pharmaceuticals & Medical Supplies to Remain Dominant Applications

Suppliers of insulated shipping containers will continue to benefit from growing demand for protective packaging solutions for high-value specialty drugs, such as medicines for cancers and vaccines for infectious diseases. Such pharmaceuticals require temperature controls throughout the supply chain to ensure their safety and efficacy as well as to reduce losses during shipment. A growing regulatory focus on compliance with storage temperature requirements will also support demand.

Solid Increases in E-Commerce Market Supported by Meal Kits & Other Shipped Perishables

Insulated shipping containers are seeing strong sales increases in the relatively small e-commerce market, driven by expanding online sales of meal kits and other perishable food and beverage items. Many packages containing fresh and frozen items require good insulation during shipping, (e.g., packages are often left outdoors until the intended recipient arrives home). Nonetheless, in these applications insulated shipping containers will continue to face competition from more sustainable protective packaging alternatives such as insulated liners and reusable shipping containers.
