While negative effects of the 2008 Great Recession continue to ebb, ecommerce and foreign trade are rapidly gaining traction, in turn driving growth of the international trade and ecommerce sector. The need for product protection systems, currently representing a notable rise, has been driven by the upward trend of warehousing that is extremely popular among manufacturers. This is one of the key driving engine for the product fall protection systems market. High investments on the development of logistics infrastructure, particularly by governments of developing nations such as India, to improve the transportation network will further impact future expansion of the product fall protection systems market.
The product fall protection systems market has been envisaged to exhibit a moderate 4.0% CAGR, in terms of volume, during the period of forecast (2018-2028). Rapid increase in urbanization and industrialization, particularly in developing nations of Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), is further complimenting expansion of the product fall protection systems market. This is mainly because of the ripple effects of industrialization and urbanization on growing demand for FMCG and industrial goods, and their sales uptake in third party online channels.
To cater specific requirements of end-use industries, product fall protection systems manufacturers have introduced a wide range of equipment. Value sales of pallet rack safety nets and cargo bednet/stretch are set to remain higher, with the latter forecast to register a comparatively higher rate through 2028. However, slings will continue to be top-selling variant, in terms of volume, with the cargo bednet/stretch following the suit. Volume sales of slings are envisaged to surpass 73,767 thousand units by 2028-end.?
Product Fall Protection Systems Market: North America Prevails Ahead of Europe in Terms of Volume Sales
Product fall protection systems market in North America continues to illustrate higher volume growth than the market in Europe, albeit the latter continues to hold comparatively greater market value share. Increasing momentum of the warehousing industry, in line with the rapid rise in ecommerce, is likely to bode well for growth of the product fall protection systems market in North America. Rise in awareness on product safety measures, coupled with growing demand for commercial warehousing facilities, will further drive North America’s product fall protection systems market.
