Asia Pacific is expected to be an opportunistic market in terms of consumption in the global pallets market.

Europe and North America are the early adopters of pallets in the food industry. The pallets market is characterized by the presence of a large number of Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific based players. There are a limited number of manufacturers in MEA and Latin America regions. The global pallets market has witnessed increasing adoption of plastic pallets owing to its various advantages over wood pallets. This market is expected to be characterized by new product development over the forecast period. According to the analysts of Persistence Market Research, the market for wooden pallets is highly organized owing to a large number of trivial players in wood pallet manufacturing. These interesting findings are the key highlights of a newly published report titled “Pallets Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 – 2016 and Forecast 2017 - 2025.”

On the other hand, the demand for plastic pallets is increasing across various industries due to its inherent advantages. Moreover, these pallets minimize the rate of injuries as plastic pallets do not have nails and splinters.

According to the CEO of a North America based wood pallet manufacturing company, any global standardization of pallets is likely to support block pallets as the platform of preference. The customers involved in shipping largely prefer block pallets. North American pallet users are also increasingly moving towards block pallets.
The President of a plastic pallet manufacturing company from Europe region said that customers have been asking for plastic pallets because many new foreign import restrictions have been imposed that make the use of wooden pallets less attractive.
