Wellesley, Mass., May 21, 2015 –BCC Research reveals in its new report on hazardous waste management that environmental issues have become tied to international trade and investment. A rapid increase in volume and types of solid and hazardous waste from economic growth, urbanization and industrialization has challenged national and local governments to ensure effective and sustainable management of waste.
The global market for hazardous waste management technologies and services totaled an estimated $23.8 billion in 2013. This figure should reach nearly $25.9 billion in 2014, the first year of a projected five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%. By 2019, the end year of the forecast period, the market should reach $33.9 billion.
Important changes are occurring, partly due to external economic or social forces that affect the hazardous waste management industry. Such external forces include regulative and legislative frameworks, source reduction and pollution prevention programs and initiatives, economic constraints due to recession or competition, and new developments in treatment technology and disposal
“Pollution prevention strategies and legislation along with economic recession in some parts of the world have reduced the volume of hazardous waste over the past five years. However, large amounts are still being produced at industrial sites and in densely populated areas of the world, says BCC Research analyst Nikos Thomopoulos. “The population increase along with urbanization trends and continual generation of industrial hazardous waste has presented a demand for safe transportation, handling, storage, processing, treatment and environmentally safe disposal.”
Key market drivers include increasing hazardous waste, growing environmental concerns (which lead to stricter legislation globally), greater energy conservation and production from waste including hazardous waste, and lower costs in nearly all industry sectors (which stimulates growth of recycling and reuse programs).
