Waste-to-Energy Plant Operation
The Waste-to-Energy Plant Operation industry has performed well over the past five years to 2018. As the economy has grown, increased consumption, industrial activity and construction activity have spurred growth in national waste generation, increasing demand for industry waste disposal and treatment services. While the industry has performed well over the past five years, revenue growth has been somewhat hindered by stagnant electricity prices. In an effort to compete, industry operators have been unable to raise prices for the electricity they produce. The industry is forecast to grow at a somewhat diminished rate over the five years to 2023. This slowdown is a result of continued declines in the world price of steel, which will bolster industry profitability but slow the growth rate of revenue. Overall, demand for the utilities and recycled steel produced by the industry is expected to grow.
