DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xcxjlz/waste_management) has announced the addition of the 'Waste Management Market Report 2013' report to their offering.
This Key Note Market Report examines the UK waste management industry, with a focus on the collection, treatment and disposal of waste. In 2011, the total UK waste management market grew by 9.5% in comparison to the previous year, according to provisional Government statistics. However, total waste volumes in the UK were expected to have declined over the same period.
The UK market comprises of two main sectors: municipal waste and commercial and industrial (C&I) waste. The vast majority of municipal waste arisings are derived from household collections or civic amenity sites, while C&I wastes are generated by activities in the retail sectors, or from manufacturing and similar industrial activities. In recent years, there has been significant growth in the volume of waste collected from both sectors, with improvements being made in the provision of collection services, along with numerous waste initiatives by Central Government and local authorities.
The most important issues impacting the waste management industry are the European waste hierarchy and the UK Government's intention to create a zero waste' economy. The waste hierarchy the principles of which guide UK waste policy involves placing waste reduction through more efficient material usage, as the highest priority, followed by re-use, recycling, other recovery methods, and finally disposal at landfill. Aside from this, the Government has committed to numerous other measures, such as the development of the anaerobic digestion (AD) sector; a reduction in the amount of waste sent to landfill; and continued improvements to services for householders and businesses, as part of the move toward a zero waste economy.
Over the short term, Key Note forecasts that the UK waste management market will exhibit relatively subdued growth, as a result of a shrinking economy in 2012 and continued economic uncertainty in 2013. As macroeconomic conditions improve, consumption levels across the UK should increase resulting in significant growth in the waste management industry from around 2014 onwards. By 2016, Key Note forecasts that the total UK waste management market will have a value of £10.79bn.
