SandlerResearch.org Reports Smart Waste-Collection Technologies Gaining Ground

An effort to cut costs in municipal waste collection is driving growth in the worldwide smart waste industry, according to a new research report, titled Global Smart Waste Market 2015–2019, from SandlerResearch.org, a database of selected syndicated market reports for global and regional industries.

The use of smart waste technologies minimizes the overall cost involved in solid municipal waste collection, according to SandlerResearch.org, and these technologies employ RFID- and sensor-based containers that facilitate real-time, easy-to-use Web portal services for fill-level measurement. The global smart waste market is forecast to grow at 16.82 percent year over year between 2014 and 2019, according to the report. The new report also emphasizes key advances in technology in the waste-management process.

Smart waste management refers to the management of solid municipal waste from residential societies, streets, public places, commercial buildings, hospitals and other institutions. It uses smart technologies, such as RFID disposal tags and sensor containers that provide real-time fill measurement of solid municipal waste. A sensor-based container, for example, can help reduce the overall collection and logistics cost of waste collection by approximately 50 percent, SandlerResearch.org reports, by helping authorities to more efficiently manage solid waste collecting routes, which ultimately reduces fuel and service costs. What's more, the proper and efficient management of solid municipal waste can mitigate many problems related to pollution, climatic changes and public health.

The Global Smart Waste Market 2015–2019 research report has been prepared based on in-depth market analysis, with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, as well as the Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions, and also covers the Global Smart Waste market landscape and its growth prospects during the coming years. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
