Recent developments in the pharmaceutical industry have led to the emergence of biologic drugs that need to be stored under controlled temperature.

The consumer’s increasing preference for online shopping is compelling e-retail companies to develop adequate warehousing facilities, which is contributing to the category spend momentum.

This is driving the category demand in several European nations. The thriving e-commerce industry is also responsible for the category demand in the United States. The months of November and December are the primary shopping season during which the spend rate increases considerably.
