Waste To Energy (WTE) Market is Predicted to Reach USD 37.64 billion by 2020 Research Report by Hexa Report

Global “Waste To Energy (WTE) Market” was valued at USD 24 billion in 2012. A shift in focus towards replacing coal with renewable energy resources to reduce carbon footprints is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global WTE market.

Increasing domestic and industrial waste has prompted governments across various regions to promote energy generation from waste. Favorable regulatory policies coupled with government support in the form of tax benefits and financial incentives have had a positive impact on the market, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. 

Strong shift in trend towards energy security around the world coupled with decreasing landfill area is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global WTE market. Government support in the form of tax benefits and government subsidies are also expected to have positive influence on the market growth over the next six years. Threat from other established renewable energy sources particularly solar, wind and hydro is expected to remain a key challenge for market participants. In addition, high upfront cost associated with establishment of WTE plants is also expected to hamper the market growth.
