May 9, 2012 - PRLog -- Apex Insight has published new research on the UK waste management industry.  This quantifies the market size for waste management and historical patterns of growth, probes key trends behind the figures, sizes the different segments, profiles and explores the performance of leading operators, discusses the regulatory framework and sets out a market forecast supported by relevant evidence.

The study is based on data from economic, government and company sources as well as interviews with senior-level contacts in the market.  It includes analysis of relevant economic factors – such as GDP, household trends – and more specific factors including waste arisings, landfill targets and void levels, treatment markets and innovation in waste-to-energy.  The analysis of historical trends and forecasts is anchored in this information.

It is intended for waste management businesses themselves as well as private equity and other investors, banks, analysts, consultants and other parties with interests in the environmental and waste management industry.

The study concludes that, having stayed relatively resilient in the economic downturn, continued growth in the industry is underpinned by some structural drivers and should reach just over £9bn in 2012.

The vvldt market remains relatively concentrated with a few European operators taking a significant share of the total market. These larger players have significant scale and negotiation advantages compared to their smaller peers.

Future growth is supported by regulation across the collection and treatment segments, targets that need to be met, decreasing landfill void and new innovations in waste-to-energy.

However, some uncertainties remain around the rate of growth, such as the risk that slow economic recovery could lead to continued depressed business activity across waste generation industries.

Findings from the study are presented clearly and concisely with extensive use of charts and tables to illuminate points and support conclusions.
