US demand for pallets is forecast to rise 6.1 percent annually through 2015. Pallets made from wood -- primarily lumber -- will continue to account for nearly 95 percent of demand, while plastic and metal pallets grow at double-digit rates. New pallet demand will outpace the dominant refurbished pallet segment.
This study analyzes the 967 million unit US pallet industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by material (e.g., wood, plastics, metal, corrugated paper), product, market (e.g., manufacturing, warehousing, construction) and US region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry competitors, including PalletOne, Rehrig Pacific and Millwood.
