"Increasing demand for plastic pallets across the industry verticals, across the globe"

From the past three decades, wooden pallets have been adopted due to their strength and easy manufacturing processes. On the other hand, it has many disadvantages such as less durability, moisture absorption, cleanliness problems, and it splinters and breaks easily. The wooden pallets need to follow certain regulations such as International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) to prevent the spread of insects and diseases. Nowadays, logistics and shipment companies are shifting more towards plastic pallets, owing to its advantages such as lightweight and environmental friendly as compared to wooden pallets. Moreover, the growing awareness to reduce the carbon footprint is also increasing the plastic pallets demands, which in turn, will fuel the global pallets market sales. 

  • For instance, In Saudi Arabia, the company Takween Advanced Industries is focused primarily on developing new and innovative plastic pallets with the use of various technologies, such as injection molding and blow molding, to increase its market presence.

  • CHEP has adopted new technologies to develop plastic pallets to offer lightweight products in multiple industries, such as pharmaceutical and food and beverages.

Furthermore, considering the multiple benefits of plastic pallets, the demand for the plastic pallets market is projected to increase in the short-term, mid-term, and long-term forecast period.

"Increasing demand for wooden and plastic pallets across Asia Pacific is driving the region"

The pallets market in Asia Pacific was accounted for US$ 14.77 Bn in 2018 and is expected to emerge as the growing region during the forecast period. The growth in Asia Pacific is likely to be driven by the adoption of wooden and plastic pallets for importing and exporting goods from one country to another. Countries, such as India and China are expected to have a significant opportunity to grow over the forecast period.

In 2018, MEA generated a revenue of US$ 6.18 Bn and was estimated to witness the growth owing to increasing demand for plastic pallets in the transportation and logistics industry. Countries of MEA are adopting the usage of recycled products, which is ultimately supplementing the reduction of plastic wastes.

For instance, Saudi Arabia has started adopting new technologies for waste recycling purposes. Saudi Arabia itself produces 15 million tons of municipal wastes each year, which includes plastics wastes (5-17%), glass (3-5%), metals (2-8%), paper (12-28%) and food wastes (40-50%). Moreover, Saudi Arabia is working continuously on adopting new and innovative technologies to reproduce plastic products for multiple purposes, which includes material handling products and services. According to Invest Saudi, the country is focusing on the establishment of a production facility of semi-finished engineering plastics. This will further augment the global pallets market revenue in this region.
