Solid waste is an unwanted solid material that is created as a result of human activities. Most home, commercial, and industrial activities result in the production of solid waste. The bulk of solid trash is made up of organic materials, waste paper, waste plastic, glass, and metal objects. The act of appropriately collecting waste materials, processing them, and disposing of them in a way that safeguards both the environment and the general public is known as solid waste management. Municipal and industrial waste, urban and rural locations, and developed and developing nations all have different solid waste management practices. According to the world bank trends, the average amount of garbage produced per person per day in the world is 0.74 kilograms, however, the variation is considerable, from 0.11 to 4.54 kilos. This shows the need for solid waste management is huge in the market door to door. Also, maintaining human and environmental health is the major goal of solid waste treatment, it is given additional significance for leading to a higher quality of life and overall economic growth.

The rapid increase in industrialization waste is driving solid waste management market growth

Municipal garbage and industrial trash are two distinct market groups. Industrial waste is the biggest and fastest-growing sector. Industries generate the majority of solid waste. The growing industrialization of emerging nations is the key driver of this market's rise. Manufacturers must appropriately dispose of industrial garbage by regulatory standards. The need for effective waste management services develops as a result. The need for effective industrial waste management services is increasing as material recycling and the circular economy become increasingly crucial in meeting long-term goals.

According to the world bank trends, the world produces 2.01 billion tonnes of municipal solid garbage yearly, and at least 33 percent of it—to put it mildly—is not managed in a way that protects the environment.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, around 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste are produced and disposed of at a variety of American industrial sites each year. This shows that the increase in production of soyabean oil which has been the most important feedstock for bio-diesel will propel the market for biodiesel at a rapid pace.

The rise in proactive government measures will increase the solid waste management market

Government initiatives to stop unlawful dumping are fuelling the growth of the world market for waste management. Additionally, it is anticipated that greater use of WTE incineration and recycling processes would foster the expansion of the waste management industry. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was first introduced by the Environmental Protection Agency of the US government (EPA) in 1976 and to date is working to reduce open dumping and manage hazardous and non-hazardous waste. In addition, a rise in globalization and population has increased the volume of garbage produced globally. According to figures from the World bank global garbage is anticipated to increase to 3.40 billion tonnes by 2050, more than double the population growth during the same period, Additionally, daily per capita, trash creation is anticipated to rise by 19% in high-income countries by 2050, compared to a 40% or greater rise in low- and middle-income nations.

Countries have put laws and rules into place to standardize management recycling and solid waste management solutions for the development of management solutions. According to, as part of its commitment to efficient solid waste and pollution management in India, the government of India has launched many significant national projects, including the Waste to Wealth Mission, the Swachh Bharat Mission scheme, and the National Water Mission.

This certainly shows the increase in growth of the government taking measures to manage solid waste will propel the market growth for the solid waste management market.

During the forecast period, Asia-pacific tends to grow in the solid waste management market

For the waste management markets the Asia Pacific area has a large market share in countries like China, India, Japan, South Korea, and other Pacific Rim countries. Due to its dense population, with China and India being the two most populous nations, this area is anticipated to develop at the fastest rate throughout the projected period. According to a United Nation report, China and India comprise more than 37% of the global population. China and India are home to, respectively, 1.4 and 1.3 billion people at present.

According to the World Bank, the East Asia and Pacific area is creating most of the world's trash, at 23 percent, while the Middle East and North Africa region is generating, in terms of percentage, the least, at 6%. By 2050, overall garbage creation is anticipated to more than quadruple in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa, respectively.

According to the world bank, a results-based incentive scheme has encouraged home kitchen trash separation in China in 2018. A contemporary anaerobic digestion plant to ferment and recover energy from solid organic waste is being built with the help of an $80 million loan from the World Bank, which will benefit 3 million people. This shows that the growth of solid waste management will be huge in the Asia-pacific region as the demand will increase, propelling the market growth.

Market Key Developments.

  • In February 2020, Suez and the Shanghai Chemical Sector Park agreed to recover hazardous waste from the car industry and clients within the industrial park. This agreement, worth a total of RMB450 million, would allow them to develop ecologically while also fulfilling the growing need for hazardous waste treatment.
  • In March 2019, Veolia announced an agreement with Nestle to create recycling initiatives to recover plastic trash. It will focus on the collection, sorting, and recycling of solid plastic garbage in eleven significant Asian, African, Latin American, and European countries, with a focus on flexible plastic packaging.
