The pallets market size is predicted to be worth around $110 billion in 2028, from $79 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021 to 2028. Pallets are a tertiary form of packaging that can be used for stacking, storage, protecting, or transporting of goods in supply chains. It is utilized as a base for unitization of goods for logistics and warehousing.
Moreover, pallets can be manufactured using materials such as wood, plastic, metal, and corrugated paper, which can be handled using material handling equipment such as forklifts, pallet jacks, or conveyors. Pallets find applications in nearly all supply chains including industries such as chemicals, food & beverage, retail, and others.
The unprecedented growth in e-commerce industry is expected to drive the demand for pallets on a significant scale. The COVID-19 pandemic has enhanced the inclination of population towards e-commerce platforms, especially in countries such as India and others, where e-commerce had lesser prevalence. The rise in e-commerce has challenged supply chains to develop transportation and logistics to control flow and cost of outgoing and incoming goods. Online orders are generally in smaller quantities and more frequent, thus, requiring more assets for goods management. This creates a demand for pallets for e-commerce-based logistics, which in turn drives the pallets market growth.
Moreover, the rise in focus toward sustainable packaging and pallets is also expected to drive the growth of the pallets market. Majority of the pallets in use today are produced with wood and is one of the largest contributors in municipal solid waste (MSW). In addition, the waste wooden pallets are rich in energy, which is generally wasted during MSW disposal. Thus, companies are now adopting recycling techniques to reduce the wastage of wood for pallet manufacturing. For instance, companies such as Brambles, Ltd., based in Australia, and CABKA Group GmbH based in Germany, are striving toward production of fully recyclable or 100% reusable wooden and plastic pallets.
However, the fluctuations in prices of wood, especially in Europe and North America, limits the growth of the pallets market. Europe and North America are the largest consumers of wooden pallets collectively, hence, the price changes in lumber affects the consumer patterns in the pallets industry. In addition, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the international trade and manufacturing supply chains. This affected the demand for pallets during 2020.
On the contrary, the adoption of new technologies in supply chains such as use of internet of things (IoT), automation, collaborative robots (cobots), and others, can promote pallet manufacturers to produce pallets with RFID tags, GPS sensors, and others, which can create a demand for pallets in the near future.
