Global Food Waste Management Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Food Waste Management is the process of reducing, reusing, recycling and composting food waste. The importance of Food Waste Management is to reduce the amount of food that goes to landfill, which can produce methane gas.


Cereals are the largest waste generated by food and beverage industry. Cereals account for more than 30% of the total food waste generated from various end-use industries. The major reason for cereals being a major component of food wastage is their high water content, which makes them perishable and prone to deterioration when exposed to microorganisms or enzymes in the environment.

The global market size was valued at USD 590 billion in 2014.

Dairy Products:

Dairy products are the edible substances obtained from milk. The main function of dairy products is to provide nutrition and energy to the human body. Dairy products consist of proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates which are an essential part of human diet. Milk is considered as a source of calcium for preventing osteoporosis which helps in strengthening bones and teeth.

Application Insights:

The others application segment, which includes paints and varnishes, pharmaceuticals, lubricants and greases, adhesives and sealants accounted for a share of over 25% in 2017. The growth is attributed to the growing demand for lubricating oils across the globe coupled with an increase in production of biofuels.

Animal feed was the largest application segment that year accounting for around 40% of global market volume. The growth is attributed to increasing consumption of animal protein sources such as meat from livestock owing to rising disposable income levels among consumers especially in emerging economies including China India & Brazil. Furthermore increased spending on research & development on enhancing animal productivity also boosts industry growth worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Europe was the largest regional market in 2017 owing to high animal feed production and consumption. The European Commission has set a target of reducing food waste by 2030 and this is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the fastest-growing markets due to rising awareness regarding food wastage, increasing population, rapid urbanization, changing lifestyles along with growing demand for packaged foods are some major factors driving growth in this region.

The U.S., China, Japan were among top 10 countries with highest per capita food waste generation globally (in terms of calories).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about food waste and its impact on environment
  • Rising prices of food commodities
  • Stringent government regulations for reducing food wastage
  • Growing inclination of consumers towards sustainable living practices
  • Proliferation of technology-enabled solutions for better management of food waste
