These pallets are usually handled by forklifts or pallet jacks. In most of the cases, pallets are rectangular in shape and occupy an area of one square meter or more. The India pallets market is projected to register a CAGR of 13.9% in terms of value over the forecast period of 2016-2024. In 2016, the India pallets market was valued at INR 6,223.1 Cr.

Key market dynamics
A robust growth of the manufacturing sector in India is an important market driver increasing the use of pallets in the Indian market. The manufacturing sector in India is poised to take off and exhibit a sustained growth due to the government initiatives like ‘Make In India’ and the rollout of the GST tax structure in the coming years. Such kind of reforms are likely to have a positive impact on the manufacturing sector in India. Due to the fillip received in the manufacturing sector, the development of the warehousing industry is likely to receive a major boost, and as a direct consequence of this, the pallets industry in India is likely to grow significantly. In addition, the growth in demand for safe transportation of goods and various materials is likely to further boost the use of pallets in the Indian market. All these factors are likely to boost the growth of the India pallets market over the forecast period.
However, decline in international trade and India being a labor intensive industry is likely to hamper the growth of the India pallets market. In addition, a lack of proper warehousing infrastructure is likely to restrict the growth of the India pallets market.
