Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growth of the returnable transport packaging market. Returnable transport packaging includes products such as reusable containers, pallet containers, drums, barrels, dunnage, racks, and pallets that enable manufacturers and various industrial users to transport raw materials and goods safely and efficiently across the supply chain.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is demand from the warehouse and logistics industry. The global logistics sector was valued at $780 billion-$ 825 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. The market growth is mainly driven by the increasing economic activities and the rising demand from the e-commerce sector. The logistics industry is also increasing its focus on the industries such as the pharmaceutical, grocery, retail, and automotive industries that are the key end-users of pallet containers. The warehousing and logistics industry requires heavy duty pallet containers to export a variety of goods to various warehouses and distribution centers across the globe.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is volatility in the raw material prices. Pallet containers are manufactured using materials such as wood, plastics, metal, and corrugated cardboard. Volatility in the raw material prices is witnessed in the global pallet container market due to the gap in the demand and supply of the various raw materials. Steel, an alloy of iron and carbon, is used as a raw material for the manufacturing of pallet containers because of its low cost and high tensile strength. The expected fluctuation in the prices of the steel during the forecast period is anticipated to reduce the demand for the pallet containers made of steel.
