Global food waste management market is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. The global food waste management market is driven by the growing environmental concerns among the population. This has drastically increased the need for efficient food waste management and reduction of greenhouse gases. This is expected to spur the market growth through 2025. Additionally, increasing use of organic food waste for manufacturing fertilizers and animal feed is further expected to foster the market growth over the next few years. Also, changing food habits and rising trend of food on the go further drives the market growth during the forecast period. However, waste segregation and collection can hamper the market growth over the next few years. Also, landfills and incineration techniques can further restrict the market growth since they can increase environmental problems. Besides, the sudden outbreak of pandemic COVID-19 has led to the increasing accumulation of food waste which is not getting managed due to nation wise lockdowns is further negatively impacting the market growth.

The global food waste management market is segmented based on type of waste, process, source, application, company and region. Based on type of waste, the market can be fragmented into cereals, dairy products, fruit & vegetables, meat, fish & seafood, oilseeds & pulses, processed food, coffee grounds & tea and others. The fruits & vegetables segment is expected to dominate the market owing to the increasing health consciousness among the population. Additionally, a lot of fruits & vegetables get wasted during production and harvesting stages. Based on process, the market can be grouped into aerobic digestion (composting), anaerobic digestion, incineration/ combustion and others. The anaerobic digestion segment is expected to hold a significant market share during the forecast period since it helps recover energy and nutrients from the waste.

Regionally, the food waste management market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to dominate in the overall food waste management market owing to the increasing awareness among the population coupled with increasing initiatives by the government for efficient food waste management. Additionally, lack of cold chain infrastructure in the region further drives the growth of market.
