Latin America Food Waste Management Market Drivers and Restraints:

Rapid industrialization and increased R&D activities to develop efficient systems should have a positive influence on growth. The increasing use of organic waste for the production of animal feed and fertilizers, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the rising energy needs are the factors that should stimulate the demand for waste management systems. Food Increased consumption of processed foods, including prepared meals, is also expected to stimulate demand. The rise in health-conscious among consumers in the country is likely to boost the consumption of fruits and vegetables, thus causing an increase in food waste production. In addition, the government initiative to educate people on proper storage methods for fruits and vegetables to prevent rot should stimulate growth.

The growing demand for improved technologies, such as gasification for waste treatment, is expected to create new opportunities in the next seven years. The gasification process converts organic materials such as biomass or combinations of inorganic and organic surpluses into a combustible gas called synthesis gas. The negative effects of incineration and landfill techniques on the environment are supposed to hamper Latin America Food Waste Management Market growth. Both incineration and landfill contribute to GHG emissions, the leading cause of global warming. The incineration process involves burning the waste to turn it into ash and heat. Anaerobic digestion is the latest technological improvement that should stimulate industrial growth to eliminate food waste, as it helps to recover energy and nutrients from products. Waste separation and collection is a significant challenge that is presumed to stimulate industry demand during the prediction period.
