Third-party Logistics Market in India: Key Drivers and Trends
Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The introduction of tax reforms and initiatives for 3PL in India is notably driving the third-party logistics market growth in India, although factors such as high operational costs may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the third-party logistics industry in India. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Third-Party Logistics Market in India Key Driver
One of the key factors driving growth in the third-party logistics market in India is the introduction of tax reforms and initiatives for 3PL in India. The 3PL sector in India is experiencing a transformative phase with the introduction of various reforms and initiatives. The GST is one of the major tax reforms that was introduced by the Government of India. The implementation of GST helped reduce the price differences between states and make tax liabilities uniform across India. The new tax regime reduces logistics costs and increases operating efficiencies by reducing border checks. The increasing introduction of such reforms and initiatives in India is expected to fuel the market growth of 3PL in India.
Third-Party Logistics Market in India Key Trend
The emergence of digitalization in 3PL is another major factor supporting the third-party logistics market share growth in India. Digitalization has emerged as a key trend among various 3PL service providers in India. Many of the 3PL providers have started investing in smarter information technology (IT) and software systems that can give a better return on investment. Specialized software helps drive the costs down, save time, and increase efficiency. Some of the technologies used for logistics services include radio-frequency identification (RFID), blockchain, and real-time location systems (RTLS). The use of such advanced technologies is expected to reduce the operational costs in the logistics sector, which would drive the growth of the market in focus over the forecast period.
Third-Party Logistics Market in India Key Challenge
The high operational costs will be a major challenge for the third-party logistics market share growth in India. The logistics industry in India is becoming highly competitive in terms of the pricing of services owing to the increase in demand for VAS. Transportation costs form a major part of logistics costs. The volatility in fuel prices in India is contributing to the rise in transportation costs. As fuel prices increase, logistics service providers charge customers for achieving profits. The constant demand for lower rates from customers creates pricing pressure on logistics service providers. The unorganized and inefficient logistics supply chain in India results in various indirect costs such as inventory carrying costs as well as damages and losses to goods in transit. These incidences are very common in the Indian logistics sector and account for a larger part of operational costs. These factors are likely to restrict the market growth of 3PL in India.
This third-party logistics market in India analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
