The global pallet market reached a volume of 7.6 Billion Units in 2020. Pallets refer to horizontal platforms that support goods and assist in carrying them from one place to another using a front loader or a forklift. They are one of the most common bases employed to stack goods and are generally secured with a stretch wrap, pallet collar, adhesive or other means of stabilization. They can be manufactured using different materials depending on the application, such as wood, plastic, metal, etc. As they are relatively stronger than other containers like plastic wrappers and cardboard boxes, workers can stack heavier objects on a single pallet without breaking it. Owing to these attributes, they are extensively used by a large number of manufacturers and shippers of commercial goods across the globe.

Apart from this, increasing consumer expenditure on housing and infrastructural activities owing to the inflating income levels of consumers, in confluence with the rapid urbanization as well as industrialization, is boosting the demand for pallets worldwide. In addition, manufacturers are investing in research and development (R&D) activities to incorporate technological innovations in the production of pallets. For instance, they have introduced multiple-trip pallets, which aid in reducing cost per-trip, eradicating solid waste and improving operational efficiency. Plastic pallets have also gained immense popularity across various sectors on account of their reusability and recyclability. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global pallet market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
