Waste Management Market Research, 2032

The Global Waste Management Market Size was valued at $1860.2 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $3498.2 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2023 to 2032.

Waste management is the collection, transportation and disposable of garbage, sewage, and other waste products. It involves treating solid waste and disposing of unwanted products and substances in a safe and efficient manner. Waste management includes all types of waste including solid, liquid, or gas. Waste management deals with municipal, industrial, and hazardous waste. Municipal waste generally refers to residential waste and non-hazardous waste generated in towns and cities. Industrial waste refers to waste generated in industries while production and manufacturing processes. Hazardous waste refers to waste generated in pharmaceuticals, medicals, chemicals, and paint manufacturing industries. Increase in demand for responsible landfilling, where modern landfills are designed to minimize environmental impacts and maximize safety will propel the waste management market specially in developing countries.

Furthermore, major activities performed on waste are its collection and disposal. Collection services refer to collection & transportation, storage & handling, and sorting of waste. Whereas disposable services refer to segregation of waste into landfills, recycling, compositing, and anaerobic digestion.

Waste Management Market

Growth of the Global Waste Management Market is driven by proactive government measures to reduce illegal dumping. Moreover, an increase in adoption of WTE incineration and recycling techniques is expected to promote the market growth. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) with an aim to reduce open dumping and manage hazardous and nonhazardous waste. In addition, the surge in population and increase in globalization has led to an increase in the overall waste volume, worldwide. Urban population produced about 1.3 billion tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) in 2012, which is expected to grow to 2.2 billion tons by 2025. Moreover, increase in industrialization in emerging economies, such as India, China, and Taiwan has led to development of chemical, oil & gas, automobile, and medical industries, which generates enormous amount of waste and causes pollution. Moreover, increase in environmental awareness regarding renewable waste management systems among people and rise in CO2 emissions, globally, are expected to generate growth opportunities for waste management. These factors are expected to significantly contribute toward the growth of the global market.

However, the high cost of procuring and operating waste management solutions is expected to hamper the market growth.  In addition, waste management is labor intensive and can consume a lot of amounts as their wages. Similarly, costs of transportation of waste can take up a lot of allocated amounts as the cost includes collection cost and further transportation to landfills or recycling facilities. Cost recovery for waste services differs largely from income levels. Thus, making the market a little rigid, considering the investments related to its process, which, in turn, hampers the waste management market growth.

Due to lockdown, owing to coronavirus, the waste production drastically declined from industries and commercial sector as industries and offices were partially or completely shut down. However, the municipal waste increased from residential areas. Furthermore, due to the decline in manufacturing operations of new goods, led to fall in demand for recyclable material such as rubber and plastic. However, reopening of production facilities and introduction of vaccines for coronavirus disease are anticipated to lead to re-initiation of waste management companies and waste recycle industry at their full-scale capacities.

Conversely, rise in awareness among public and government agencies about these solutions and surge in need to develop waste-to-energy solutions are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for market players during the forecast period. Owing to these opportunities several waste management companies have adopted strategies such as business expansion, acquisitions, agreement, and partnership to offer better services in the waste management market. For instance, in March 2019, Veolia announced a partnership with Nestle to develop recycling programs to recycle plastic waste. Similarly, in February 2020, Suez entered an agreement with the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park to recover hazardous waste from the automotive sector and clients inside the industrial park.
