Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
Hazardous waste disposal services have a buyer power score of 3.0 out of 5. This score signifies that buyers in the hazardous waste disposal market have a moderate level of power. “Low levels of specialization raise buyer power, while high market share concentration and a low availability of substitutes limit buyer power,” says IBISWorld business research analyst Deonta Smith.
Because most aspects of the hazardous material disposal process are standardized, buyers have a wider range of haulers form which to choose. Thus, the low levels of specialization benefit buyer power. “However, low specialization will not benefit buyers seeking to dispose of highly sensitive materials such as radioactive waste because regulations mandate that such materials are handled and disposed using more complex methods, which can impact service prices,” says Smith.
While small-scale haulers make up the majority of service providers, large-scale firms own most of the market share, which further limits a buyer's options. Moreover, any buyer that is planning on procuring hazardous waste disposal services in a certain market will be limited to operators that service that geographic location, which reduces buyer power.
The lack of substitutes for hazardous waste decontamination services also can narrow the buyer's scope of possibilities. If a buyer is not satisfied with the firm that serves their geographic location, procuring services from a national firm may be available as an alternative. Leaning toward a larger operator can help buyers obtain leverage by creating competition during the negotiation process. Major vendors include Clean Harbors Inc., Freedom Environmental Services Inc., Heritage-Crystal Clean Inc. and Newalta Corporation.
