The global recycling bins market size is set to enter a period of prolific expansion owing to surging solid waste generation around the world, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Recycling Bins Market, 2023-2030”. According to the “What a Waste 2.0” report published by the World Bank (WB) in 2018, worldwide, approximately 2.01 billion metric tons of municipal solid waste is generated every year. The WB predicts that by 2050, the amount of waste generated will rise to 3.40 billion metric tons. Even more shockingly, only 13.5% of this waste is recycled and 5.5% is composted, the WB’s report highlights. Increasing waste generation is detrimental to public health as non-treatment or inefficient disposal this waste is likely to create breeding grounds for various diseases, which will inevitably and disproportionately harm the less-privileged. As a result, the adoption of recycling bins and other modern waste management technologies is rising worldwide, which is driving the global market.

Market Driver

Rapid Urbanization to Stimulate Strong Growth Trends in the Market

Urban areas are responsible for majority of the waste generated around the world and this is expected to increase exponentially in the coming decades as countries rapidly urbanize. The Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) revealed in 2018 that roughly 55% of the world population is living in urban areas. However, the DESA predicts that the number of urban dwellers will rise sharply to 68% by 2050, adding over 2 billion inhabitants to urban spaces in the next three decades. The effects of this unimpeded growth are already visible in the form of stupendous waste generation in most large cities. For example, the WB states that wealthy countries such as Canada and the UK produce 34% of the global waste, while more than 90% of the waste in low-income countries is mismanaged. To counter this massive issue, governments around the world are aggressively promoting the adoption of tools and devices such as recycling bins to optimize waste collection, segregation, and treatment processes.

Regional Insights

Excessive Waste Production to Fuel the Market in North America

North America is expected to lead the recycling bins market share during the forecast period owing to inordinately high waste generation in the US and Canada. The WB reveals that the daily per capita waste generation in North America is 4.87 pounds, while in Sub-Saharan Africa it is only at 1.01 pounds. This is expected to create huge demand for recycling bins in the region, especially at the household level.

In Asia Pacific, speedy growth of urban areas, initiation of hygiene awareness schemes by governments, and improved funding for sustainable development programs will be the key growth-drivers for the region. In addition, evolving waste management infrastructure at local government level will provide extra impetus to the recycling bins market growth in the region.
