According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Construction and Demolition Waste Management Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global construction and demolition waste management market is witnessing healthy growth. Construction and demolition (C&D) waste management refers to the process of collecting, transporting and recycling debris produced during the construction, alteration, destruction, rehabilitation, or refurbishment of infrastructures. The process helps with the proper disposal of construction materials, thereby curbing their negative impact on the environment. It also ensures the recycling of waste materials so as to limit the production and consumption of virgin resources and new materials. Nowadays, the rising concerns about environmental degradation have led to the adoption of C&D waste management globally.
Global Construction and Demolition Waste Management Market Trends:
With rapid urbanization and globalization, there has been an increase in C&D activities around the world. These activities generate a considerable amount of waste that is usually disposed of in landfills, rivers and other water bodies, leading to environmental pollution. Owing to these negative consequences, governments of various nations have implemented stringent regulations to control and reduce illegal disposal of construction waste materials. They are also working toward recycling demolition waste and simultaneously generating sustainable raw materials for reconstruction. For instance, the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA) is promoting the recycling of recoverable C&D materials, including concrete, asphalt, asphalt shingles, gypsum wallboard, wood and metals, that are produced in the United States every year. Other than this, many non-governmental organizations are creating awareness about the hazardous impact of construction waste, which has significantly encouraged end users to adopt C&D waste recycling techniques. Moreover, technological advancements in the building and construction industry have led to innovative and advanced waste management techniques, which will provide a positive thrust to the market in the forthcoming years. Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2019-2024.
