Market Fuelled by Legislation and Energy Security
This research service provides an analysis of the global waste to energy (WTE) plant market for the period 2009–2016, with a detailed breakdown of new plants, modernisation works, and also operation and maintenance services segments. The study looks at the WTE aspect of municipal solid waste (MSW) management and covers the incineration technology solutions. It also describes the current status of the WTE plant market in Europe, Americas, APAC, and MEA regions. This research service analyses the influence of key market drivers and restraints on the prospects of the market. It also gives a comprehensive competitive analysis of the global key markets.
-The global waste to energy (WTE) plant market was worth $Xbillion in 2012, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of X% from 2012–2016. It is expected that in 2016, the market will reach $X billion as thermal waste utilization is gaining more acceptance globally.
-The adoption of WTE plants is highest in Europe and Asia-Pacific (APAC), due to the introduction of globally the most advanced municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment processes in these regions.
-Currently, WTE thermal solutions are witnessing strong demand from regions with high population density but limited area, such as Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia. This is due to diversion of waste from landfilling to incineration for energy recovery.
-Currently, APAC is the global market leader with X installed plants, highest mass volume of incinerated municipal solid waste (MSW), and highest estimated market revenue.
-It is expected that by 2016, the APAC region will become globally the most attractive market for new WTE plant installations due to high generation of MSW feedstock and limited landfilling.
-Europe is forecast to become the second-largest market driven by strict landfill regulations and adequate support in the form of policies and incentives for generation of green electricity.
-The global shift from coal and nuclear power to renewable energy, in order to lower carbon dioxide emission and address the critical need of energy security, is benefiting the WTE plant market.
1. Technology based on grate combustion surface dominates the global WTE plant market and were used in X% of the installed plants as of 2012 and is expected to remain the leading global WTE plant solution.
2. WTE plant suppliers are focusing on process integration by development of holistic solutions to provide energy efficiency and positive return on investment.
3. APAC is expected to drive the growth of the WTE plant market due to its high availability of inexpensive feedstock material, high potential for maintenance work, and demand for new WTE plant installation.
4. In terms of plant capacity, the global trend appears to be shifting from medium to large plants.
5. Modernization services are expected to drive the European and Americas markets, as in both regions, nearlyX% of installed fleet is older thanX years.
