The global garbage disposals market plays an important role in managing kitchen waste efficiently. Garbage disposals provide an effortless way to grind food waste directly into small particles that can easily be flushed through plumbing pipes. Installing a garbage disposal unit under the kitchen sink saves time and effort spent in collecting and throwing garbage. They help reduce waste that normally ends up in landfills. The small particles can also be used as compost for gardens and plants. The growth in urbanization and nuclear families has increased kitchen waste exponentially. Highrise apartments with limited space for waste storage find garbage disposals very useful.
The global Garbage Disposals Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3061.01 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Disposal units with ENERGY STAR certification meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy.
