Biological Treatment Technologies Market Trends




  • Rising concern about municipal solid waste treatment to boost market growth




Municipal solid waste (MSW) is waste collected by or on behalf of a local authority. It comprises mostly household waste, and it may include some commercial and industrial wastes. The quantity of MSW has risen year on year, presenting a growing problem for local authorities, particularly as legislation. At present more than 62% of all MSW generated in England is disposed of in landfills. The governments of most countries are planning to use alternative waste management options for dealing with MSW to limit the residual amount left for disposal in landfills. These factors are driving the growth of the biological treatment technologies market in municipal solid waste management. Some of the biological treatment technologies have already been used in the UK for source segregated waste, for green garden waste, food waste, and in other industries such as sewage sludge treatment and agriculture.


Additionally, Rising investments in R&D from key players and technological advancements in biological treatments offer lucrative opportunities for the market's growth during the forecast period. Manufacturers of biological treatment systems are projected to benefit from advancements in biological treatment technology in the near future. Due to growing environmental concerns and increased activities surrounding solid waste management, the natural processes used by biological treatment solution provider helps in the decomposition of organic contaminants. Moreover, customers are focusing more on eco-friendly technologies and services. They have become more selective while choosing the service provider based on their environmental footprint. The companies are also addressing some of the world's most pressing sustainability challenges, including solid waste management and climate change. These factors are stimulating the growth of the biological treatment technologies market. Therefore, such factors related to hair products have enhanced the Biological Treatment Technologies market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


Biological Treatment Technologies Market Segment Insights


Biological Treatment Technologies Treatment Insights


The Biological Treatment Technologies market segmentation, based on treatment, includes Composting, Vermicomposting, Black soldier fly treatment, Anaerobic treatment, and Fermentation. The anerobic digestion segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to the Biological Treatment Technologies market revenue. Aerobic digestion (also known as anaerobic digestion) is a process that uses microorganisms to break down organic material in the absence of oxygen. This process generates biogas, which can be used to generate electricity or heat. The anaerobic digestion segment is expected to dominate the market share during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for renewable energy sources and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


Biological Treatment Technologies Application Insights


Based on application, the Biological Treatment Technologies market segmentation includes Residential, Commercial, Industrial. The industrial sector is the largest segment of the Biological Treatment Technologies Market, followed by the commercial segment. This is due to the increased use of biological treatment technologies in industrial processes, such as wastewater treatment, and the growing need for sustainable waste management solutions in commercial buildings.
