North America and Western Europe to account for more than 50% of the global returnable plastic crates (RPC) market by value   

The global returnable plastic crates (RPC) market has witnessed impressive growth in the past few years due to global growth in the logistics and shipping industry. Growing exports and imports between several countries and safe transportation of products has paved the way for the growth of the RPC market.

Factors impacting growth in demand and adoption of returnable plastic crates

RPC market manufacturers are mainly emphasizing on expanding their footprint through returnable transit packaging. There has been rapid increase in the usage of plastic crates for the bulk packaging of several fresh agricultural products during several process such as harvesting, post-harvest handling, as well as for the transportation and storage of food grains, fruits, vegetables, etc. across the globe. Due to the availability of plastic crates in different capacities, consumers can pack their agricultural produce depending upon its usage. The sturdy and hard nature of plastic crates as compared to other packaging material is boosting the market. Furthermore, plastic crates are lighter and compatible as compared to wooden crates, which is boosting their demand in agricultural applications. Plastic crates are better for handling due to their smooth surface as compared to wooden crates that have splinters and nails. In addition, wooden crates are open and this is likely to lead to the drying of agricultural products, whereas plastic crates can be packed properly, which decreases the chances of drying and keeps the produce fresh for a longer time.
