The Latin America corrugated pallets market size witnessed significant growth in the past and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2023-2030).
Corrugated pallets, also known as paper pallets, are not made of wood but are constructed from corrugated materials, paper board sheets, and other paper-based components. They are produced using different manufacturing techniques, including corrugated top and bottom decks, internal support cells, honeycomb support blocks, corrugated runners, compressed corrugated material for support blocks, and built-up runners.
The global corrugated pallets market is divided into segments based on the product, end user, and region to conduct a comprehensive analysis. The research aims to determine the revenue generated from the sales of various types of corrugated pallets, including those with less than three walls, 3-5 walls, and 5+ walls.
In Latin America, the growth of the food and beverage industry is being driven by emerging economies. These economies are experiencing population growth and improved living standards, leading to an increased demand for corrugated pallets in the food supply chain across various countries. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations also highlights that around one-third of global food production is wasted during transportation and handling, resulting in food shortages. To tackle this issue and meet the rising food demand, corrugated pallets play a vital role in food preservation. They offer effective protection against moisture and humidity, preventing mold growth, addressing hygiene concerns, and reducing food wastage.
In Latin America, the market for corrugated pallets is projected to experience a decline due to the enforcement of environmental regulations. Bans and regulatory measures are being implemented on corrugated pallets emitting harmful solvents and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), posing health risks such as nausea, vomiting, nosebleeds, fatigue, and dizziness. As a result, these factors are expected to impede the market’s growth during the forecasted period.
In Latin America, the popularity of e-commerce retail channels is growing among households. Companies that use packaging materials that cannot be recycled are facing significant criticism and public scrutiny. The use of plastic in packaging is widely acknowledged as the least sustainable option and often encounters legal challenges from government authorities and environmental protection agencies. However, corrugated packaging has emerged as a viable and eco-friendly substitute for plastic packaging materials due to its ability to be completely recycled.
