CLEVELAND, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Revenues from material recovery, the fastest-growing segment of the broader US waste management services industry, are expected to climb at an average annual rate of 5.6% through 2020. Rising oil prices will spur sales of recovered materials such as plastic resins as alternatives to petroleum-based inputs in manufacturing. At the same time, manufacturing activity in the US and China – a major purchaser of recovered materials – will support recovery revenues. Paper production (including paperboard) in China, for example, is expected to rise 3.7% annually through 2020, heightening demand for recovered paper as an input material. However, ongoing efforts to reduce generated waste – and limitations on recovery rates – will constrain the volume of marketable material and corresponding revenues.
