Construction waste is anything that is generated as a result of construction, and then abandoned, regardless of whether it has been processed or stockpiled. Construction are at the core of all our demand, i.e. water, energy, and material, but they also create waste. This waste, generated in the construction, maintenance, and disposal phases of a building, is called construction and demolition (C&D) waste. The construction waste market includes waste from demolished structures, renovations in the real estate sector, and construction and repair of roads, flyovers, and bridges. According to a report by the World Bank in 2012, globally, cities generate 1.3 billion tons of solid waste every year. This volume is expected to increase up to 2.2 billion tons every year by 2025. Building material accounts for half of the solid waste generated every year worldwide. Steps in construction waste management are storage and segregation, collection and transportation, recycling and reuse, and disposal.

Policies are drafted to increase recycling of construction waste, as countries around the world are concerned about environmentally sustainable development. The solution for a sustainable future is to reduce, reuse, and recycle. The construction waste market is a part of the solution for a sustainable future. Various certifications such as LEED are in place in different countries to encourage managing construction waste more efficiently.

Lack of standardization, low margins, poor policy push, lack of awareness, and lack of techniques are the key barriers for the expansion of the construction waste market.
