Pallets - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

The total number of pallets in use in the US will grow 1.7 percent annually through 2019 to 1.4 billion units. Wood will remain the dominant material but plastic, metal and corrugated paper pallets will grow faster and gain market share, albeit from small bases. Manufacturing will remain the dominant market, but warehousing will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 1.3 billion unit US pallet industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by material (wood, plastics, corrugated paper, and metal), 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 43 industry competitors, including PalletOne, Universal Forest Products, and Sonoco.
