Waste is a global issue; when not disposed of properly, it can seriously threaten public health. Liquid waste management includes a series of activities such as processing, collecting, and disposing of liquid waste. The increasing awareness for hygiene and government regulation globally supports the growth of the liquid waste management market. Moreover, Urbanization, population growth, and economic development are some of the key factors increasing liquid waste generation. The increasing wealth of countries and the shift toward urban areas increases the per capita generation of liquid waste globally. This rapid population growth, as well as Urbanization, demands improved liquid waste collection and treatment services. For instance, The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs Report in 2018 suggests that 55% of the population worldwide lives in urban cities, and is expected to rise to more than 68% by 2050. The reports also suggest that 90% of the urban population increase will occur in Asia and Africa.

High Volume of liquid waste generated from a number of industries fuels the market growth.

The increasing awareness and concerns about the rising number of cases of water-borne diseases globally is a key factor that gives rise to improved liquid waste management services. Thereby increasing the demand for liquid waste management market. Additionally, various government initiatives for liquid waste disposal, such as the Waste disposal Act, Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals, and Environment Protection Agency, support the market growth.

Source Analysis

Immense use of water in the residential sector supports the market growth.

The residential segment dominated the overall liquid waste management market. The residential sector consumes the majority of water in various household activities. Thereby leads to an increase in per capita wastewater generation. Sewage is the main liquid waste from the residential sector. The National Waste Report 2018 in Australia suggests that in 2017 about 1,900 GL of sewage was discharged from the residential sector. Liquid waste is disposed of from households as food waste, a significant part of overall liquid waste.

Moreover, data released by the Government of India suggests that about 62,000 million liters of sewage is generated in urban areas of India per day. At the same time, the treatment capacity across India is only 37% of the total sewage generation. Aforesaid factors are the key reasons for the growth of the liquid waste management market.
