Municipal solid waste, also known as trash or garbage or rubbish, is a type of waste comprising daily items that are mainly discarded by the public. Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) involves the collection, recycling, and treatment of residential & commercial solid trash to safeguard public health by enhancing sustainability and rendering support to economic growth.
 

In most of the cases across municipal solid waste management, the solid trash is accumulated and disposed of either in landfills or in an incinerator. Incineration of this trash will lead to the reduction of its existing volume and weight by 90% and 75% respectively.
 

However, extensive burning and landfilling across the globe are creating significant threats to the environment. Hence, policymakers are emphasizing more on the adoption of various sustainable municipal solid waste management practices, which primarily includes recycling. In this process, the sorted waste is sent to various reprocessing units to effectively convert it into various useful materials.
 

Increasing global population with rising urbanization have significantly raised the concerns for the proper municipal solid waste management. It is becoming a necessity for the regulators to develop stringent measures toward effective tackling of the existing solid trash. Ongoing measures toward resource recovery will significantly augment the municipal solid waste management market demand over the forecast timeframe.
 

The municipal solid waste management market report features a detailed analysis of industry trends on a global scale segmented on a country & regional basis across different sources, treatment, and composition of municipal solid wastes.
 

Moreover, the market forecasts & estimates are in line with the data represented by authorities including the International Solid Waste Association, World Bank, Municipal Waste Management Association, Food & Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, regulatory bodies, and company press releases.

The municipal solid waste management market from the residential section is anticipated to exceed 2 billion tons (MT) by 2026. The market trend is mainly focused on the effective handling of various domestic consumables including food scraps, product packaging, grass, newspapers, clippings, clothing, bottles, furniture, and appliances.
 

This garbage is usually derived from various single and multifamily residential establishments. Growing penetration of such establishments will have significant impacts on the municipal solid waste management statistics across the globe.
 

For local civic bodies, municipal solid waste management has emerged as a severe concern in the last decade. The situation is getting worse with a rapid increase in the global population. Inadequate waste disposal not only causes serious environmental concerns but also impacts the public health index.
 

As a result, regulators across the globe are now promoting the development of various decentralized municipal solid waste management systems in their respective localities. The establishment of such systems not only helps in catering to the serious environmental issues but also reduces the quantity of waste at source.
 

The involvement of the local community will significantly help municipalities to successfully carry out municipal solid waste management practices over the forecast years. Moreover, the introduction of stringent regulatory mandates by policymakers relating to waste treatment will further drive the municipal solid waste management market trends globally.

The global municipal solid waste management market has witnessed substantial improvement in the recent past. The implementation of numerous regulatory measures to implement ecological trash treatment practices has boosted the industry outlook and expanded the market size significantly. Currently, most of the developed economies are making extensive efforts to enhance their investments in regional recycling and composting/AD industry growth.
 

On the contrary, several other low-income nations are still dependent on conventional landfill & incineration techniques to dispose of municipal solid wastes.
 

Respective regulating bodies have created multiple norms & regulations pertaining to the efficient municipal solid waste management. For instance, the EU has developed the landfill directive (1999/31/EC) instituting constraints & standards for landfills to reduce the harmful effects of the wastes directed to landfills.
 

However, the implementation of stringent norms toward enhancing sustainability has diverted the business trends toward sustainable practices including anaerobic digestion and recycling. This will have a substantial impact in the market outlook globally.
 

Surging demand for paper & paper board will drive the municipal solid waste management market statistics

Stringent governmental measures to discourage the applications of plastics have created a significant impact on the usage of paper and paperboards. These products are mainly used as non-durable goods or as packaging materials. Nondurable goods comprise newspapers, cups, paper plates, and tissue paper.
 

On the contrary, containers and packaging involve products including bags & sacks, milk cartons, and corrugated boxes. In 2019, paper and paperboards held a prominent share in the global market statistics. Most of these wastes are easily recyclable; hence, their application areas and market demand are witnessing a substantial surge globally.
 

As per the EPA, the recycling rate of paper and paperboard was almost 65% in the U.S. in 2018, which was considered to be the highest as compared to other materials in the US municipal solid waste management market. Moreover, the combustion and incineration of these wastes do not have any adverse environmental impacts. Therefore, their usage has been more emphasized by the policymakers as compared to other materials.
 

Implementation of advanced waste management technologies to stimulate the North America municipal solid waste management industry outlook

Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America account for over 75% of the global market share. The market statistics for municipal solid trash management in North America will witness a significant growth owing to the implementation of advanced and innovative trash treatment technologies & practices.
 

For instance, in 2018, Waste Management, Inc. launched its new technology CORe, an organic recycling technology capable of turning food scraps/waste into energy. The recycling process is based on the technology that converts the waste into ESB, which is in the form of an organic slurry utilized to generate green energy. It is extensively utilized in New York City, South California, and Boston to deliver the output products to wastewater facilities.
 

Surging population, soaring investments in the commercial sector, and the increasing consumer spending have made North America one of the leading market players for municipal solid waste management across the globe. Moreover, the flourishing tourism sector will further create a significant impact on the market growth of MSWM in North America over the forecast period.
