The unit load device market is projected to grow from USD 1.64 Billion in 2016 to USD 2.02 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.28% during the forecast period. Various factors, such as increase in demand for lightweight ULDs, growth in international trade, and increase in demand for cold containers are expected to drive the unit load device market.

The market is segmented on the basis of product type, application, material, container type, and region. The product type segment is further divided into LD 3, LD 6, LD 11, M 1, pallets, and others. Based on product type, the LD 3 segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The LD 3 container is mainly utilized in passenger aircraft and growth in the LD 3 container segment can be attributed to the increase in passenger traffic.

Based on application, the unit load device market is segmented into commercial and cargo. Commercial is the largest application segment. Rise in passenger traffic has led to increase in air cargo, thereby propelling the demand for unit load devices for commercial aircraft.

Based on material, the unit load device market is segmented into metal, composite, and others. The composite segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The aviation industry prefers containers made of composite materials due to high maintenance and replacement costs of aluminum containers and pallets.

Based on container type, the unit load device market is segmented into normal, cold, and others. The normal container segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Normal containers are used to transport dry cargo. Some of these containers are made of composite materials that are lightweight and durable. Normal containers are used in commercial aircraft as well as cargo aircraft. Rise in aircraft orders will significantly contribute to the increasing demand for unit load devices. The demand for unit load devices is the highest in the Asia-Pacific region and is expected to grow in the future.
