Global Industrial Crates Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Industrial crates are a type of shipping container that is used to store or transport goods. They are typically made from metal or plastic and are rectangular in shape.


Wood is one of the most commonly used materials in the manufacturing of industrial crates. It is a renewable resource and can be replaced with few years time. Wood based products are environment-friendly as they do not emit any toxic fumes during production process like some metal or plastic counterparts.

The global wood market size was estimated at USD 135 billion in 2015.


Metal and its usage in the industrial crates market is a strong, robust, large-sized box (or boxes) used to store various types of goods. It can be used for shipping products safely from one place to another; it has high load capacity and durability. The metal boxes are available in different shapes and sizes; they can be customized as per the requirements.

Application Insights:

The chemicals segment led the global industry and accounted for more than a 29% share of the total revenue in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand from various industries including oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceuticals, energy and power.

Chemicals are one of the important applications that include hazardous materials. These hazardous materials need proper storage facilities to maintain their safety while waiting for transportation or during installation at their final destination. Industrial crates provide easy-to-clean interiors which enhance hygiene conditions required by companies handling such types of cargo across different industries worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing foreign investments and trade activities with major economies such as U.S., China, Japan, and Germany among others. In addition, rising population coupled with rapid urbanization has led to an increase in demand for food products which will further boost industry size over the next eight years.

Europe was valued at USD X million in 2017 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 due high consumption of industrial crates within construction sector especially within Eastern European countries such as Russia that are engaged in building new cities on their territories including Moscow and St Petersburg among other cities throughout Russia that are home for around 13 million people along with other smaller cities having populations less than 500 thousand people each thus resulting into higher construction activities across Europe thus driving product demand over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for industrial crates from the automotive and transportation sector as a result of the growth in global trade.
  • The increasing popularity of lightweight crates made from plastic and other composites that offer better durability and resistance to weathering compared to traditional wooden crates.
  • Development of innovative crate designs that can be used for multiple purposes, such as storage, shipping, and handling products in factories and warehouses.
  • Growing demand for reusable industrial crates as a result of initiatives by governments and businesses to reduce wastefulness and environmental impact associated with disposable packaging materials.
