Smart Waste Management Market Scope and Opportunities Analysis 2021 – 2027

The global smart waste management market was valued at USD 1,531.6 million in 2020 to USD 4,103.5 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 15.1% from 2021 to 2027. Smart waste management is the concept that uses sensors in waste to track the live status of the city waste collection services when bins are ready for the emptied or filled. It also monitors the historical data collected by sensors and databases, identifying and optimizing driver routes, reducing operational costs, filling patterns, and scheduling. Remote monitoring and IoT-based waste bins are more feasible for collecting waste effectively. It also reduces routing and fuel prices.

Some of the factors, such as strict government regulations for waste management, are anticipated to boost the market growth of smart waste management. An increase in technological innovations such as IoT and cloud-based smart waste bins and development in the adoption of smart waste bins are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for smart waste management companies.

All these factors are expected to increase the demand for smart waste management services.

Global Smart Waste Management Market Dynamics

Drivers: Rapid urbanization and industrialization

The global urban population was reported at 34% in 1960. This trend reveals a potential growth in the urban population. As per the estimates and forecasts of the WHO, the global urban population is expected to grow by approximately 1.84% every year until 2020, which is at the rate of about 1.63% per annum from 2020 to 2025, and around 1.44% per annum from 2025 to 2030. As per the current estimates, by 2025, the urban population is expected to reach 4.3 billion, generating about 1.42 kg/capita/day of municipal solid waste. As per the United Nations Economic and Social Commissions for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) region witnessed an annual urban population growth rate of 2.6% in the past five years. Adoption of data analytics and IoT by major players to improve efficiency by assisting them in the making data-driven decisions fuels the growth of the smart waste management market. This rise in the urban population is expected to result in an unprecedented increase in waste generation. Thus, to manage waste sustainably by using sensor-based services and IoT-based systems, urban and smart cities are anticipated to adopt smart waste management, which, in turn, would propel the growth of the market.

Restraints: Lack of efficient connectivity

Smart waste management systems use ultrasonic sensors, IoT-based systems, Bluetooth connectivity, and other garbage collection and effective waste management systems. IoT-based smart waste collection and monitoring systems are used to collect waste effectively. At times, IoT-based systems do not work correctly, owing to lack of internet connection, lack of standardization, and IoT barriers, which hampers the development of smart cities, particularly in waste management practices. Hence, these factors are anticipated to restrain the growth of the global smart waste management market.

Opportunities: Technological advancements

Key players have developed new innovations in smart waste bins, enabling sensor-based, IoT, and remote monitoring systems. In addition, intense competition has been witnessed within waste management processes. Furthermore, key players such as SUEZ Environmental Services and Urbiotica offer IoT-based monitoring systems for waste management. For instance, in October 2019, Bigbelly Inc. entered into a partnership with Telit, based in the UK, and deals in smart waste monitoring systems. The partnership aimed to improve IoT-based smart waste and recycling systems. Hence, an increase in technological advancements is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the global smart waste management market.

Solid Waste, by waste type, is projected to account for the largest market share

Based on type, the global smart waste management market is divided into solid waste, special waste, and e-waste. In 2020, the solid waste segment accounted for the largest market share of 54.1% in the global smart waste management market. Solid waste includes residential, commercial, and municipal waste. It usually consists of a mixture of heavy loads of timber, bricks, tiles, rubber, paperboard, paper, plastics, clothing, packaging materials, food scraps, cans, bottles, garden waste, and newspaper waste. It can be disposed of in landfills or waste stations. It uses sensors, RFID tags, and mobile applications. Rapid industrialization and urbanization from developed to developing countries have resulted in enormous volumes of solid waste. For instance, in 2017, Americans generated about 267.8 million tons of municipal solid waste, of which about 67 million tons were recycled, and 27 were composted, which is equivalent to a 35.1% recycling rate. The rise in waste generated by countries such as China and India propels the smart waste management market growth.
