Category : Energy and Power | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC421


The incinerators are equipment that are used for treatment of waste through burning of organic substances present in it. During this process, waste materials are converted into flue gas, ash, and heat wherein the heat produced is further used for generation of electricity. The furnace utilized in combustion process is automatically monitored and controlled to ensure efficient and safe operations.

Market Dynamics

The major factors propelling the incinerator equipment market is the growing demand for waste management technologies. The incinerator process helps to minimize the cost of transportation of waste to landfills as well as reduce pressure executed on available land. It also helps to eliminate harmful gases that are produced from landfills which further reduces environmental risks. On the other hand, the incinerator equipment market is greatly affected due to regulatory policies relating to carbon emissions, implemented by different organisations such as US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and others. Dioxins which are produced on a huge scale during waste treatment process are very toxic in nature due to high content of carcinogenic chemicals in it. Incineration is mainly introduced in line with waste to energy plants rather than separate installation due to its high set up cost. Also, there is rising demand for skilled professionals who can efficiently manage continuous operation and maintenance of the incinerator equipment.

Market Trends

Incinerators with newer technology and cleaner combustion are expected to be the future trends for this market. Rapid growth of the technology has been in progress to initiate technologies at economical costs and leading to further enhanced environmental performance. The energy produced from this incineration process is highly regulated and it is usually provided to limited public and private operators. Since the tariff of electricity formed through incineration is wholly based on production costs, the government therefore, is planning to subsidize the prices to make it affordable for the consumers to purchase.

The governments across the world are also encouraging a lot of private players to participate in order to overcome huge investments associated with the development of incineration plants. Also, the collective involvement of public as well as private companies has reduced the ownership issues which initially would have affected energy generation and waste management process. The suitable location of the plant is also crucial to commence cost effective services for waste disposal.

Market Classification and Overview

The global incinerator equipment are used for treatment of chemical and industrial wastes, municipal wastes, building wastes, sewage incineration, medical waste incineration, agricultural incineration, and ashes. Major incinerator technologies include rotary kiln, liquid injection, static fluidised bed, direct flame, multiple hearth incinerator, catalytic combustion, moving grate incinerator, furnace, and waste gas flare. Among these technologies, rotary kiln, fluidised bed and liquid injection are more dominant across the industry owing to its flexibility and usage in large number of applications.

The waste combustion process through incinerator equipment is mainly undertaken in Japan due to shortage of available land resource. Denmark and Sweden have been the leaders in the production of energy through incineration process. Germany, Luxembourg, France and the Netherlands are the other countries which are mostly depending on incinerators include.
