Wet Waste Management

Problem Definition: 

The global wet waste management is expected to be valued at over USD 130 billion by 2022. The market is expected to witness a CAGR of over 5% from 2015 to 2022. In India the amount of waste generated every day is more than 1,00,000 metric tonnes, which is actually higher than many countries’ total daily waste generation taken together. Over 75% of the recyclable waste is overflowing the landfills and merely 30% of it is being treated. 

Industrialization in emerging economies, mainly Asia Pacific countries such as India, China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea, is not only leading to the development of chemical, healthcare, oil & gas, food, medical, and automobile industries but is also emerging as a major source of noxious wet waste generation. 

With the rise in the urban population, global Wet Waste Management industry growth is also expected to drive in the future.

Any type of waste that is not considered as dry waste is considered as wet waste. It consists of kitchen wastes such as vegetable and fruit peels and pieces, tea leaves, coffee grounds, eggshells, bones and entrails, fish scales, as well as cooked food.

Developing WTE (waste-to-energy) solutions are expected to further enhance the global industry demand by simplifying the process implementation. The government initiatives to spread waste management awareness through various programs, advertisements, and social networking sites is also an important factor, which is gaining importance globally and is expected to enhance the overall wet waste management market over the forecast period. Increased amount of wet waste and lack of landfill sites are going to be the major challenges in the near future.

The global wet waste management market is segmented on the basis of service, process, type, and source. The service segment includes disposal & landfill, sorting, collection & transportation, processing, and storage. 

On the basis of process, the wet waste management market is segmented into incineration, recycling, and dumpsites/landfill treatment. The type segment includes agricultural waste, food scrap, shredded paper, medical waste etc. The region is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period owing to developments in China, India, and Taiwan. Global wet waste management industry is expected to witness entry of significant mid-sized industry participants.
