Historic Market Outlook for Pallet Corner Boards

The global pallet corner board market witnessed a CAGR of 4.0% during the historic period with a market value of US$ 536.2 Million in 2022.

Corner boards are rigid, right-angled strips made from paper and plastic that reinforce the edges on the top, bottom, and corners of a box to protect it from any collisions, stress or strapping that it may have to endure during storing or moving processes. Most of the paper pallet corner boards are made from recycled paper and are 100% biodegradable. Using corner boards is one of the most efficient and reliable yet simple ways of adding strength to boxes while protecting the goods inside them and ensuring their safety from strains and stresses.

Pallet corner boards are cost-effective and are used as a protective measure against damage from heavy blows, warping due to stacking, etc. The size and thickness of the corner boards are customizable according to the customer’s requirements. Some manufacturers also allow custom printing on corner boards to facilitate branding of the customer’s company or to make the boxes of their brand distinguishable from others.

Quality products damaged due to mishandling or mishaps prove detrimental to businesses and may affect customer retention which is the grounds for which they invest in packaging protection. All these factors contribute to the expansion of the pallet corner board market extensively.

How logistics is attributing to the steady increase of pallet corner boards sales

Globalization, the emergence of e-commerce websites, the rise in consumerism, and ease of communication and transportation across vast distances have fueled the logistics industry in the past decade. The rising quantity of items stored in inventory and the growing number of transits over longer distances are causing logistic companies to majorly consider the safety of the items being shipped. This owes to the fact that an increase in consignment leads to higher chances of damage to the items as even a slight blow or jolt to the packaging box can cause the item inside it to get disfigured easily especially if it is fragile.

Logistics companies strive hard to make any product reach its destination from the dispatch center while not only maintaining its utmost quality but also ensuring that no substandard product is delivered. Adding pallet corner boards to boxes as a protective measure at an economical cost saves huge costs of logistic facilities and management while corroborating the safety of goods. Due to the increasing utilization of logistics, the scope of the pallet corner board market is also expanding.
