The number of pallets in use in the US is forecast to grow 2.4 percent annually to 2.6 billion in 2017. Metal and plastic pallets will grow the fastest but wood will remain by far the dominant pallet material. Construction and other markets will be the fastest growing segment, outpacing manufacturing as both markets rebound from recent declines. This study analyzes the 1.1 billion unit US pallet industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by material (e.g., lumber, engineered wood, plastics, corrugated paper, metal, fasteners), source (new and refurbished wood, new and reclaimed resin), product (e.g., lumber pallets, engineered wood pallets, plastic pallets), 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 40 industry competitors such as Great Northern, ORBIS, and PalletOne.
