ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - has announced the addition of MarketsandMarkets's new report "Global Waste-to-Energy Market by Geography, Technology, Applications Market Trends and Forecasts (2010 - 2015)," to their collection of Alternative Sources market reports. For more information, visit

The global energy market is witnessing a shift toward waste to energy technologies due to growing energy demands worldwide, the rapid depletion of conventional sources of energy, and concerns over environmental pollution from conventional energy sources. Governments across the globe are offering initiatives and financial schemes to encourage production of energy from industrial and agricultural wastes. The report studies the waste to energy market only for municipal solid waste (MSW), and excludes hazardous metal and other wastes. The research also does not cover the waste water treatment market.

While only a few international companies are currently active in the WTE market, it is expected to witness a double-digit growth rate in the next five years largely due to the participation of developing countries. Ongoing research is also expected to resolve current concerns of conversion and efficiency; making waste a mainstream source of energy.

This market research report analyzes and forecasts the markets for all the major types of waste-to-energy technologies. It also analyzes challenges such as negative general opinion, high initial cost, long production and sales cycle, rules and regulations, political indifference and compulsion of local joint ventures.

Market forecasts are based on primary and secondary research data. The market structure is designed on the basis of secondary research on the product portfolios of WTE technology companies. This structure is cross-validated through primaries conducted with industry players and KOL's (Key Opinion Leaders). The secondary research was based on paid sources such as Factiva and basic internet search for relevant news articles and websites of companies and associations.
