The e-waste segment by waste type is estimated to be the largest market for waste management, from 2021 to 2026. The growth of the wired segment is driven by the rapid urbanization, transforming urban mobility, and increased need to reduce carbon emissions. The market for the e-waste segment in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. E-waste includes electrically powered component waste. They include appliances such as computers, consumer electronics, and refrigerators. E-waste is a mixture of useful and hazardous materials that demand careful handling and recycling of materials. Thus, e-waste management has gained importance globally to secure the environment from the adverse effects of the materials such as lead and plastics.
Based on service type, the recycling segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. The growth of this segment is driven owing to high essentiality to reduce greenhouse gas emission. Recycling, recovery, and reprocessing of waste materials are useful to produce new products. The basic phases in recycling are the collection of waste materials, their processing into new products, and purchasing of those products, which may then themselves be recycled. Typical materials that can be recycled are iron and steel scraps, aluminum cans, glass bottles, paper, wood, and plastics. The materials reused in recycling serve as substitutes for raw materials obtained from such increasingly scarce natural resources as petroleum, natural gas, coal, mineral ores, and trees. Recycling can help reduce the quantities of solid waste deposited in landfills, which has become increasingly expensive. Recycling also reduces the pollution of air, water, and land, resulting from waste disposal. Recycling helps reduce energy usage, decrease the amount of new/fresh raw materials, and minimize greenhouse gas emissions.
The residential segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the waste management market in 2020, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Ever-increasing population and significant solid waste generation to drive demand for waste management services from residential segment. Waste generated from residential end users can be used for generating energy through waste-to-energy plants by burning solid waste to produce steam in a boiler and can also be is used to generate electricity.
The waste management market has been segmented, by region, into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. The Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the fastest rate, from 2021 to 2026, followed by Europe. The region has been segmented, by country, into China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Rest of Asia Pacific. Rest of Asia Pacific mainly includes Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. The population growth in the region, the high disposable income of the people, and the increased demand for packaged food products are among a few major factors that drive the growth of waste management in the region. Asia Pacific is also a key contributor to marine plastic pollution. The materials involved include plastic bottles, plastic bags, single-use plastic items, and plastic packaging, among others. Key countries responsible for this kind of pollution include China, Indonesia, and Thailand.

In addition, the rise in well-being and prosperity of urban residents is linked closely to increased consumption and production patterns with consequences for waste streams. Increased municipal solid waste is particularly noticeable in low- and middle-income countries. In these countries, the rate of waste generation has risen quickly and is expected to accelerate over the next decade and beyond. According to the United Nations’ Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), between 50% and 65% of municipal solid waste in low- and middle-income countries is organic and can be turned into high-quality compost for use in agriculture, gardening, or landscaping or converted to biogas to produce heat and electricity. There are also significant opportunities for recycling inorganic materials, such as glass, plastic, and metal. Moreover, the manufacturing of new glass‐based materials also has an ultimate opportunity for open‐loop recycling and has more environmental benefits than that of landfilling. Between 25 and 35% of municipal solid waste is recyclable inorganic waste; this proportion will increase over the coming decades with further development of countries, leading to rising demand for waste management.
