(EnergyIndustry.Net, September 12, 2019 ) Market Overview • Industrial Waste has always been a perennial problem since the start of the industrial revolution, and its management remains a growing dilemma up to this day since the amount of substantial Industrial waste increases as population rise and economies develop. Today, the total amount of industrial waste generated annually worldwide is around 7 billion tonnes. • Industry-based waste management is one of the most elaborate Waste Management procedures. According to research conducted by The Energy and Resources Institute industrial waste management industry has an annual turnover above USD 433 billion and engages around 40 million workers (including informal recyclers), the industry covers a vast variety of operations for different waste streams and different phases of the waste life-cycle. • It is considered that the industry will further grow, especially in developing countries, and the recycling business will be the cornerstone of it. Market Dynamics Growth Factors • The primary factor driving the growth of Industrial waste is rapid industrialization. Rapid industrialization has resulted in opening up enormous opportunities in the management of industrial waste. • Especially, developing countries like China and India are setting up new manufacturing industries due to which consumption for better goods and services is overgrowing which provides a growth path for industrial waste management companies to operate in these countries. • Stringent environmental regulations imposed by various developed countries is forcing developing countries to dump their thermal power plant waste into large landfills under proper measures that drive the growth in the Industrial waste management market in these nations.
Restraining Factors • Use of waste management technologies which incurs additional investments is a major factor restraining the growth of the global industrial waste management market. • Additionally, significantly increasing amount of industrial waste and lack of initiatives by industries to minimize waste in developing economies are other factors expected to hamper the growth of the global waste management market over the forecast period 2019-2026.
Market Segmentation • Global industrial Waste Management is segmented on the basis of industries, and services. • Based on industry, Global Industrial Waste management vast into manufacturing, mining, coal combustion, oil & gas production, and others. • Manufacturing industries dominate the Industrial Waste Management market as global demand for the goods is driven by increased consumption in the developing economies such as India, China, Indonesia which is growing annually. Coal combustion follows next with high industrial waste as major developing countries are highly dependent on their thermal coal power plants so high amount of fly ash generates, which is the An industrial waste in these countries. • Oil & Gas industry generates a very high amount of industrial wastewater with hazardous chemicals that are polluting underground water and soil through this activity. • Mining and other industries generate a considerable industrial waste due to strong environmental norms being pushed in developed countries it still generates waste in the developing countries. • Based on the services, Industrial Waste Management market is classified into disposal services (landfills, recycling, composting & anaerobic digestion, and others) and collection services (collection & transportation, storage & handling, and sorting). • Among these, the disposal service segment is anticipated to dominate the global waste management market throughout the forecast period 2019-2026 as more of the new disposal machines are getting developed which offers more investment opportunities in this segment through the process of converting the industrial waste into useful energy.
Geographical Analysis • North America is the major dominating region promoting industrial waste management growth. Countries in North America and Europe have enacted stringent regulations about the collection, recycling, landfill, and incineration of industrial waste. • Different Asia Pacific countries especially India, China, and ASEAN, are beginning to shift toward sustainable industrial waste management. However, several developing and under-developed nations in Middle East & Africa and Latin America are struggling hard to implement the regulations on the collection, recycling, landfill, and incineration of industrial waste. • It is estimated to hamper the demand for industrial waste management services, especially in the Middle East & Africa and Latin America in a near short term.
Competitive Trends • global industrial waste management market is highly competitive due to the presence of significant waste management players, such as Clean Harbors, Daiseki Co., Waste Management, Suez Environment S.A., Advanced Disposal Services, Veolia Environment S.A, Covanta, Remondis AG & Co. Kg, Biffa Group, and Hitachi Zosen Corporation are provided in this report. • These players are enhancing the Global Industrial Waste Management market through mergers and collaborations. For instance, In November 2018 Veolia, one of the leading waste management service providers collaborated with Tetra Pak for recycling used beverage cartons collected within the European Union.
Market Report Insights • In the European Union (EU), about 3 million tons of hazardous waste from cement works has been used as an alternative fuel. 11,138 units have been given authorization by SPCBs under Hazardous Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2003, mostly for temporary storage of hazardous wastes within the plant premises. • In India, about 4.43 million tons of hazardous waste is generated annually, out of which 71,833 tons are incinerable (as per the reports of SPCBs submitted to the Supreme Court of India). There is a need to explore the possibility of using such wastes by other industries.
