Pharmaceutical companies and warehousing providers invested in technology and automation to improve operational efficiency and agility in response to the challenges posed by the pandemic. This included adopting warehouse management systems (WMS), robotics, and advanced analytics to optimize inventory management, order processing, and logistics operations. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the market.

The pharmaceutical industry is witnessing increasing development and distribution of temperature-sensitive products such as biologics, vaccines, and specialty medications. These products require strict temperature control throughout the supply chain to maintain efficacy and safety.

Additionally, Pharmaceutical warehouses must invest in infrastructure and technology to meet these specialized storage requirements, including temperature-controlled storage areas, cold chain logistics, and monitoring systems to ensure product integrity. Therefore, the expansion of the pharmaceutical industry is driving the market's growth.

However, setting up a pharmaceutical warehousing facility requires significant investment in infrastructure, including construction or acquisition of warehouse space, installation of temperature-controlled storage areas, and implementation of security systems. Hence, high initial investment costs are impeding the market's growth.
