Waste Treatment & Disposal Services in the US

Demand for the Waste Treatment and Disposal Services industry is highly correlated with consumer spending, as the vast majority of waste generated in the United States stems from consumer products and packaging. As unemployment has declined and incomes have risen over the past five years, consumer spending has increased strongly, driving growth in industry revenue. In the coming years, an acceleration in consumer spending is anticipated to continue raising demand for industry services, despite sustained gains expected in recycling.

This industry owns and operates waste treatment or disposal facilities, including waste combustors (waste-to-energy plants), solid waste landfills and compost dumps. Many companies in this industry also provide waste collection and hauling services and are also included in the Waste Collection Services industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
