Surge in Automation and Digitalization of Pallets

The use of radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags for product tracking, especially in plastic pallets, is increasing rapidly since the recent past. These tags can contain more information and can easily be located within the warehouse. Vendors have started using robots for processes such as pallet nailing, pallet dismantling, and pallet repair. In future, robots are expected to boost production with limited personnel requirement. This factor is likely to contribute significantly towards the growth of global pallet market over the forecast period.

Clad-rack Warehouses - Optimum Solution for Cold Storage

Pallets are anticipated to witness significant demand in the foreseeable future as these are utilized to create a cold environment. Pallets are stacked together to develop clad-rack warehouses as they support their own weight along with providing a vertical cladding. These racks are widely used in cold storage due to surface and height optimization. As a result, manufacturers of storage pallets will witness huge demand in the future from the growing regional food processing industry.

Increasing Adoption of Smart Pallets

Increasing deployment of smart pallets in most regions is expected to propel the demand for pallets in the coming years. Smart pallets comprise of an RFID microchip placed inside the central plank of the pallet, to collect information in real time. Smart pallets offer a solution for product tracking, asset tracking, and inventory management. In the coming years, the need of smarter pallets is anticipated to increase as the supply chain is likely to become automated. Moreover, utilization of pallets is gaining attraction among new users. Owing to growth of manufacturing, construction, warehousing, and construction sectors globally, pallet utilization will readily increase.

Preference of New Users for Recyclable Pallets

Non-wood pallets or alternative pallets are anticipated to witness massive increase in demand in several regions such as Europe and North America. Among these, plastic pallets will remain the most attractive option due to the ease with which these can be cleaned. In addition, they are not only more likely to be made from recycled materials, but also be recyclable themselves.
