North 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 growing energy needs are the factors that should stimulate the demand for food waste management systems in North America. Increased consumption of processed foods, including prepared meals, is also expected to stimulate demand. In the United States, the fruit and vegetable segment had more than 39.4% of the overall revenue in 2018. The surge in health-conscious consumers in the country is likely to stimulate 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 adverse effects of incineration and landfill techniques on the environment are assumed to hamper North 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. The recent trends like anaerobic digestion 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 suspected to stimulate industry demand during the outlook period.
