Challenges – Wood Packaging Market
Several Disadvantages Related With Wood Packaging
Some wooden packages such as wooden crates are usually custom made, so they can be expensive. The untreated wood packages can easily become contaminated with fungi and bacteria. Often the treatment of wooden crates with paint or other chemicals causes wood quality deterioration. Also, the wood material may be too hard or rough for products like soft fruits, and therefore liners of soft material may be needed, which further increases the expenses. Metallic packagings are being preferred as it is hard to dispose of the wooden crates after use. Moreover, the continuous manufacturing of wooden packagings such as crates, pallets, containers, and more have put an extra claim on the natural forest resources. All these disadvantages of wood packaging may hinder its market growth during the forecast period.
Covid-19 Impact on The Wood Packaging Market

Governments of the leading producing countries have imposed import and export restrictions which are significantly disrupting the shipping and transportation of various commodities, which is disrupting the wood packaging demand. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the countries have gone under lockdown, due to which the construction projects and operations are disruptively stopped, which is hampering the market growth. Also, since the wood packaging cannot be sanitized evenly, the plastic and metallic packages are being preferred more, which is affecting the wood packaging market negatively.
Technology launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the wood packaging market. Major players in the wood packaging market are Universal Forest Products, Inc., Shur-way Group Inc, Palcon, Cox Co, and Stora Enso.
