Medical courier market to exhibit productive growth during the forecast period

The global medical courier market is growing steadily as a direct effect of the rising trends in the same day delivery and express delivery segment.  Expansion of healthcare transportation/logistics and growing demand for faster delivery of samples and specimens for diagnostic or testing purposes generates maximum revenue share in the market. Moreover, manufacturers are focused on reducing logistics cost along with enhancing better healthcare delivery model in various fields such as pharmaceuticals & biotechnology industries, hospitals, medical laboratories, clinics and public health departments.

Growing need for organ transplants is a crucial factor supplementing the overall growth in medical courier market.  However, risk of compromising quality due to rush for delivering products in shortest time and lack of trained staff hampers the overall growth in developing nations. Additionally, dependency on own services by hospitals with limited external logistics support is restricting the market growth in few regions.

Medical Courier Market

High demand, and presence of top players holds North America in dominant position

At present, North America (dominantly, the U.S.) generates revenue share in the global market due to presence of some of the biggest medical courier service providers. Enhancement in clinical supply model along with commercial distribution will spur revenue growth during the forecast period. Top service providers are observed to be partnering with medical laboratories, pharmacies, blood centers, home health agencies, and veterinary laboratories globally. Multinational firms provide quick transportation of supplies while eliminating fragmentation and redundancies with a centralized and streamlined process by reducing the overall cost of shipment. On the other side, rising establishment of special economic zones (SEZs), export processing zones (EPZs), and free trade zones (FTZs) by various Asian governments have a supportive role in the lucrative market growth of Asia Pacific.

Other prominent factors include business opportunities in the private sector and development of cross-border e-commerce of physical goods is contributing to a significant market share in the market. However, high cost, limited availability of courier services for clinical supplies, lack of staff, and complexity in customs, export procedures and documentation are limiting the growth of the medical courier market.
