Overview of the global corrugated pallets market

Technavio’s market study identifies the demand for environment-friendly corrugated pallets to be one of the primary growth factors for the corrugated pallets market. As paper is easily recyclable as compared to wooden materials, consumers prefer cardboard and paperboard corrugated pallets over wooden pallets. Wooden pallets harbor bacteria, insects, and molds that lead to serious health risks. Corrugated pallets provide advantages such as easy transportation, space optimization, higher fuel savings, recycling revenue, and eco-friendly properties, that influences the adoption of these pallets. Our market analysts estimate that in terms of units, the market will incur sales volume of around 60 million units by 2021.

The retail industry, logistics, and e-commerce industry are increasingly demanding for lightweight pallets manufactured using paper and corrugated board. These corrugated pallets are lightweight that optimize the space utilization in the truck and reduce the material handling cost in the warehouse. Their lightweight property reduces the shipping costs significantly, in comparison to wooden pallets. Reduced shipping costs proportionately decreases the fuel consumption and results in cost savings in various industries. The growing demand for lightweight pallets is identified to be one of the key trends contributing towards the growth of the corrugated pallets market.
