U.S. & Canada Waste-to-Energy Market by Type of Technology (Thermal, Biochemical, and Others): Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast 2019–2026

The U.S. & Canada waste-to-energy market was valued at $1,811.0 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $2,894.0 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2019 to 2026.
Waste-to-energy (WtE) or Energy from Waste (EfW) is a process of energy recovery, and the technique of generating energy in the form of heat or electricity from the primary treatment of waste. Most of the WtE processes produce heat or electricity directly through thermal combustion, or generate a combustible fuel commodity, including methanol, methane, synthetic fuels, or ethanol. There are around 450 WtE facilities in Canada and 1,000 in the U.S.
The U.S. and Canada waste-to-energy market growth is accelerated by increasing demand for renewable sources of energy. Waste-to-energy is one of the most effective and robust source of energy derived from waste as a combustion substance. Rise in demand for electricity consumption is also other factor responsible for the growth of the U.S. and Canada waste-to-energy Market. Other factors include increase in demand for incineration process and rise in public WtE expenditure. Moreover, increase in inclination of consumers toward efficient and easy WtE conversion techniques, such as incineration, gasification, pyrolysis, and various biochemical treatments, including aerobic and anaerobic digestion, is expected to significantly boost the U.S. & Canada waste-to-energy market growth.
However, there are certain factors expected to hamper the growth of the market. Rise in concerns related to the environmental hazards associated with the incineration process is expected to affect the overall market growth in developed and developing countries.
On the contrary, increase in investments in R&D activities to ensure reliability in terms of environmental effects is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth in the future.
The U.S. & Canada waste-to-energy market is segmented on the basis of type of technology and U.S. & Canada regions. On the basis of type of technology, the market is bifurcated into thermal, biochemical and others. The thermal segment is further categorized into incineration, pyrolysis, and gasification.
