MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

Pallets are horizontal platforms that support goods and help keep them in place while being transported from one location to another using a front-end loader or forklift. The primary purpose is to speed up the handling (in block or singularly) of the goods, the secondary one concerns the utility and the facility in the management of the warehouse. Depending on the application, they can be made of various materials such as wood, plastic, metal, and so on. In Europe, the most popular sizes are 1200X1500. The height from the ground and the structure of the base, which has 9 feet linked at the bottom in groups of three, are similar in these two types. The European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL), which was created in 1991 as an umbrella organization for producers and repairers of EPAL branded pallets, is responsible for the quality of EPAL pallets placed on the market around the world, due to an independent third-party control system.

For the extra EU, the pallet used are called Pallet Fitok.

In 2020, the global pallet market has been valued around 83 billion dollars. In the projection period of 2021-2026, the market is expected to increase at a CAGR of over 5.4 percent. By 2026, the market is expected to be worth roughly 115.17 USD billion.

In Italy, the production of EPAL pallets remained solid during 2020. Compared to the same semester of the previous year, the variation recorded was slightly negative with only a few tens of thousands of pallets less placed on the market, compared to the several millions of Italian production. Pallet production is a sort of benchmark for Italy to evaluate the economic recovery of the country, since the more it is produced, the more there is a need for pallet supply. In Italy, one of the biggest pallet producers is Casadei Pallets. The lockdown resulted in a significant reduction in the volume of FITOK-branded wooden packaging headed for non-EU countries.

Italy, like other European countries, is very active in terms of reuse and reconditioning of used pallets. Used pallets do not necessarily have to be discarded, there are several techniques for reconditioning or disassembling and completely reusing wood that save tons of C02 from the designin of wood.
