Saddam Huq QA, Senior Manager, Global Logistics and Cold Chain at GSK Vaccines in Belgium notes: “India, viewed as one of the key growth markets, recognized its weak link by improving its provision at major airports, including Mumbai and Hyderabad, but cold chain facilities still pose a barrier with the unstable power supply to the development of the market in the country.”

The report states that the cold storage market in India is highly fragmented with more than 3,500 players in the unorganized sector and around 30 players in the organized sector.

India currently has 6,156 cold storage facilities across various states with a total capacity of 28.68 million metric tonnes which is insufficient – according to the report.

Alternatively, we also see strong ambitions from local Manufacturer’s in India such as ‘Serum Institute of India’ that are supplying vaccines to WHO globally.”
