Waste Management Market Size, Trends (2021 - 2026)

The size of Waste Management Market size was around USD 455 Billion by revenue, at the end of 2021. It is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.05 % to reach close to USD 512 Billion by the end of 2026.

Waste management is generally a process of handling junk scrap and the procedure involved to recycle them. Advanced Disposal Works, Veolia Environment S.A, and Biffa Group are some of the major industry players working in the waste management business. Waste management business includes industries, which operate by collection, storage, and disposal of waste, starting from ordinary household waste to the waste generated at nuclear power plants. Effective waste management can be considered as a solution to the extinction of available energy sources. So many businesses are offering waste management services of a range of kinds, and several governments also operate the waste management business for safety and better. The waste management business is wide, covering the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal, and monitoring of waste materials. 

Waste Management Market

Lessening people's health & productivity, the intoxication of water bodies, and air-related releases are some of the significant issues related to the mismanagement of solid waste. Escalating urbanization along with a constant escalation in the worldwide population has boosted up the implementation of solid waste management procedures for thrown-away goods while maintaining the economical, technical, and social feasibility of the treatment works. Continuous hard work toward resource recovery collaborated with the escalating call for segregated solid waste management implementations across developed agglomerates will boost the industry expansion. The phrase waste management is usually related to composites made by human activity and is usually taken place to decrease their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste management is also taken place to get back resources from it with the help of recycling. Waste management can have solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive things, with different techniques and branches of expertise for each of them. Waste management differs greatly for developed and growing nations, for towns and villages, and for residential and industrial producers.

Recent Developments 

  • To address the escalating worries of plastic scrap in the nation of India, 32 businesses that are PepsiCo India, Coca-Cola India, Bisleri, Diageo, and Reliance firms have come together to introduce a packaging waste management business and have an aim prepare over Rupees 1,000 crore for the employment.

  • European Plastics converters introduced the third Edition of recycling review. The Trade association, European Plastics Converters (EuPC), has confirmed the initiation of the third edition of its survey on the usage of recycled polymers in Europe by plastics converters in association with Polymer Comply Europe (PCE).

Waste Management Market Drivers and Restraints

The escalation in environmental awareness, quick industrialization, escalation in population, and escalation in urbanization boost the expansion of the worldwide waste management industry. In addition to that, practices of strict government rules toward open dumping are estimated to boost the waste management industry expansion. The development of the global waste management industry is driven by an escalation in the adoption of proactive government rules to decrease non allowed dumping. In addition to that, ascend in population and globalization has led to the growth in the total scrap waste worldwide. The urban population manufactured approximately 1.9 billion tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) in 2019 that is estimated to rise to 2.4 billion tones by the year 2025. Furthermore, escalation in industrialization in developing nations, like India, China, and Taiwan, has led to the advancement of, oil & gas, automobile, and medical businesses that is the reason for a huge amount of scrap and the reason to cause pollution. These factors are estimated to highly contribute to the extension of the global market. Nevertheless, the high price of procuring and operating waste management solutions is estimated to hinder market expansion.

Conversely, a rise in awareness among the public and government agencies about these solutions and rise in the urge to create waste-to-energy solutions are presumed to offer high growth potential for leading players over the calculated period. The development of the global waste management business is also complemented by rising concerns related to ecological issues, technological developments, the need to secure renewable resources, and funding in improving waste disposal methods. Waste collection procedures account for almost thrice the revenue covered by waste disposal, while the sale of recyclable materials and the energy made from waste makes more than 10 times that amount.

The scarcity of areas for effective waste disposal and focus on energy and resource recovery is driving the industry expansion. On the other side, lesser sustainability in waste management and less significance towards waste management are restraining the industry expansion. In addition to that, the increase in the purchase of recyclable products is offering immense opportunities for market expansion.
