Market Dynamics

Driver: The rapid urbanization.

The world has experienced rapid urbanization due to increased industry, rising disposable income, and rising population. But because this urbanization has been haphazard, ad hoc, and unplanned, resources are being used inefficiently and wastefully. Tonnes of solid garbage is produced daily by unplanned urban clusters; this waste is not separated, recycled, processed, or managed properly, resulting in unfavourable environmental conditions that harm people, animals, and the environment. Because of this, municipalities and other government entities have been encouraged to implement these systems quickly to enhance the lives of their residents. The rising urbanization will slow down the market’s growth.

Restraints: high investment and operating costs.

An efficient solid waste management system has several stages. It requires regular collection of waste, separating and transporting it. The processing requires machinery and labour. All of these are capital-intensive requirements. Furthermore, operating the system also involves significant maintenance costs. The recycled products must be introduced in the markets, requiring significant efforts from all stakeholders. Therefore, high investment and operation costs will hamper the market’s growth.

Opportunities: technological advancements and smart solid waste management systems.

The imperative need to reduce the burden of solid waste on global cities has led to the introducing of smart technologies, systems and devices to deal with the problem. Pre-installed garbage chutes enabling easy waste segregation at the source in housing societies are prime examples of such systems. Using machines to identify and separate solid waste into categories optimizes the process, making it quicker and more effective. Such systems will drive the market’s growth during the forecast period.

Challenges: lack of implementation.

Industrial and commercial establishments are responsible for significant solid waste generation. However, they do not share proportionate responsibility when managing this waste, given the lack of accountability and implementation on behalf of the relevant regulatory authorities. Such complacency leads to inefficient solid waste management practices and challenges the market’s growth.
