Smart waste collection is gaining prominence in North America and Europe where the market in both the regions is anticipated for significant growth during the forecast period. Increased research spending on the development of sensors with high-performance batteries is a key focus area for companies in the smart waste collection market.

Weight-based Solutions Address Issues of Non-uniform Trash Distribution

The smart waste collection market is estimated to advance at a favorable CAGR of ~7% during the forecast period. Novel SWMS are helping government authorities to efficiently monitor the quality of service deployed by smart waste solution companies. However, issues such as non-uniform trash distribution inside waste containers has led to gaps in proposed designs for SWMS solutions for smart waste collection. For instance, an individual might mistakenly dump a huge empty carton in the trash and this can mislead to appear as a full trash level with the help of automatic sensors. Hence, companies in the smart waste collection market are increasing their efficacy in weight-based solutions to address these challenges.

Weight sensors are being highly publicized as a novel solution to address the issue of non-uniform trash distribution in the market for smart waste collection. The integration of advanced compactors that compress wastes in waste containers are further bridging the gap in non-uniform trash distribution.
