Returnable plastic pallets are preferred over single-use wood pallets for the transportation of food and beverages products throughout the cold chain network because, when exposed to moisture, wood pallets are more likely to encourage bacterial and fungal growth. Therefore, increased food and beverage movement throughout the cold chain is anticipated to be advantageous for the local reusable packaging market. As more businesses come to understand the advantages of using sustainable packaging options, there is a rapid rise in the trend toward recyclable packaging in North America. Several factors, such as growing environmental awareness, increasing demand for eco-friendly packaging options, and government initiatives to support sustainable development, are behind this trend.

The use of robust materials, like plastic, metal, and wood, that can be reused numerous times before being recycled or disposed of, is one of the main trends in returnable packaging. In place of single-use packaging, which creates a lot of waste and is bad for the environment, these materials offer a more affordable and environmentally responsible option.

Additionally, returning pallets has a number of benefits, such as less waste, greater effectiveness, and cost savings. As a result, more businesses are incorporating these pallets into their supply chain management procedures. Using returnable pallets, companies can achieve sustainability goals and lessen their damaging environmental impact.

MARKET DYNAMICS

KEY DRIVERS:  

  • Growing demand for returnable packaging in end-use industries

Different industries searching for affordable and sustainable solutions are the ones driving the demand for returnable packaging. Returnable packaging is being adopted by a variety of industries, including those in the automotive, retail, consumer goods, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, e-commerce, agriculture, electronics, and more, in order to improve product protection, reduce waste, and optimize logistics.

  • Long-term cost savings from returnable packaging is driving the growth of the overall returnable packaging market.

RESTRAIN:

  • Increasing cost of raw materials restraining the growth of market

During the forecast period the prices of raw materials and energy will increase. The increased raw materials prices will affect the growth of market and affect the value chain, resulting in rise of operation cost.

  • Specific limitations that prevent the adoption of returnable packaging may apply to some end use industries.

OPPORTUNITY: 

  • The development of technology opens up possibilities for returnable packaging system optimization

Supply chain management software, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, RFID tracking, data analytics, and other technologies can be integrated to provide real-time visibility, asset tracking, and improved decision-making capabilities, which can improve operational effectiveness and customer satisfaction.

  • Returnable packaging has lots of opportunities for innovation in terms of both functionality and design.

CHALLENGES:

  • Varying environmental laws and regulations across different regions

The environmental laws and policies governing packaging waste and sustainability can vary greatly from one nation to the next. Due to the need to navigate and adhere to various sets of regulations, businesses that operate across multiple regions or engage in international trade are made more difficult.

IMPACT OF RUSSIAN UKRAINE WAR

According to the European Federation of Wooden Pallet and Packaging Manufacturers, there will be pressure on the supply of wooden pallets and packaging as the conflict in Ukraine affects the supply of wood.  

The organization, which represents manufacturers in the EU and the UK, expressed "deep sympathies and support for the people of Ukraine," saying the virtual shutdown of the Ukrainian economy would have "serious direct impacts on countries like Hungary, Italy, and Germany and an indirect impact across Europe by unbalancing the market, increasing competition for more limited wood supplies, and putting upward pressure

More than 215 million m3 of sawn softwood timber was exported from Ukraine last year, a large portion of which went toward the production of wooden pallets and packaging for use in countries like France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Poland. An estimated 16 million pallets were also produced and exported, mostly to Europe.

While Belarus exports about 3 mm3 and Russia exports about 4.3mm3 of softwood lumber to the EU, respectively, the trade sanctions that have been put in place against the two nations will have a significant effect on Europe.    .

Up to 25% of the pallet and packaging wood used in some nations comes from these three nations. Alternative timber sources, such as those in Germany, the Baltic States, and Scandinavia, can only make up a small portion of the deficit.

The conflict has also significantly disrupted energy supplies, resulting in a more than 35% increase in the price of gasoline and a barrel of oil now costing more than US$100. According to FEFPEB, this would have a significant impact on production costs as a whole, resulting in inevitably higher prices.

IMPACT OF ONGOING RECESSION

Packaging needs will decline due to the recession, and the shutdown will cause paper waste to start going to landfills.

Gas prices have an impact on European paper mills. However, the lack of orders for finished goods is currently the main issue. This is a result of the economy's slowdown and expectations that a severe economic crisis will cause demand for packaging to fall precipitously. There were still warehouses that were overstocked due to the expectation of high demand.

Supply chain optimization efforts may prioritize the use of returnable packaging to enhance efficiency and minimize waste.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

 

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
