The waste management process comprises collecting, transporting, and handling waste materials or rubbish. Municipal, industrial, and hazardous trash are reduced, reused, and recycled as part of waste management to address waste segregation.

Market Dynamic


The creation, introduction, maturation, growth, and eventual disposal or recycling of an electronic device are all parts of its usual life cycle. Electronic products reach the recycling stage for three reasons: they have reached the end of their useful lives, technology has advanced, or consumer demands have changed.

New electronic devices and improved versions of the current products, including laptops, mobile phones, and televisions, are produced due to rapid technological breakthroughs. Similarly, as people’s purchasing power increases, electronic devices’ shelf lives shorten. New iterations of mobile phones and other electronic items are released; the previous iterations are either discarded or sold online for recycling.

Therefore, as the lifespan of electronic items gets shorter, more and more e-waste is produced. The necessity for recycling electronic items is prompted by the buildup of electronic trash, which fuels the demand for electronic waste management.


It is projected that high operation and acquisition costs of waste management systems would influence the market expansion. The sector is also labor-intensive and can demand high salaries from its workers. Garbage transportation expenses are also substantial since they cover the collection and transportation of waste to landfills or recycling facilities.

COVID-19 Impact

Due to the lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, waste generation from the commercial and industrial sectors was reduced as companies and offices were closed entirely or partially. However, garbage in urban regions from populated areas grew. Beginning in 2021, production facilities reopen, and increasing immunization rates cause businesses in the trash recycling sector to resume operations at full capacity.

Segment-Wise Analysis

What are the reasons for raising industrial and electronic waste?

In 2021, the industrial waste sector dominated the market by over 50.0%. The principal causes of the rising industrial waste are rapid urbanization and industrialization. Industrial waste management is necessary since improper handling of this garbage can cause damage to animals and plants as well as groundwater and lake contamination.

Over the projection period, the e-waste category is anticipated to grow at the quickest CAGR of 7.3%. Rapid technological development has led to the creation of new electronic devices and improved versions of current products, which has decreased their shelf life and increased the production of e-waste.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

  • In 2021, Asia Pacific held the largest market share, over 48.1%. Government programs like the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan and the zero waste plans adopted by several Asia Pacific nations are anticipated to increase public awareness of trash management. The Asia Pacific market expansion is predicted to benefit from this.
  • The need for trash management in North America is expected to be fueled by rising garbage creation, stringent government laws for waste management, and unlawful dumping. Furthermore, the demand in North America is anticipated to benefit from rapid technical developments, including waste management methods that recycle PET bottles.
