The medical waste management is defined as the management of biomedical waste by various services such as incineration, chemical treatment and autoclaving. Medical waste is the by-product generated from the hospitals, laboratories, and research industry and surgery centers. This growth of this market is due to increase in volume of medical waste, stringent regulatory framework in order to manage the medical waste safely and in eco-friendly way, and development of healthcare infrastructure. In addition, increasing numbers of awareness program regarding medical waste management, propels the growth of the market

Medical waste is defined as the byproduct of medical, surgical, and treatment procedures, which are performed at healthcare facilities. Waste generated from hospitals, diagnostic centers, and clinic requires proper handling and management. Medical waste management ensures proper collection, storage, treatment, and disposal of biomedical waste to ensure safety of general population, animal, and environment.

Medical Waste Management Market

Growth of the global medical waste management market is majorly driven by a growth in volume of medical waste; rise in geriatric population; rise in prevalence of chronic disease; and increase in technology for effective treatment of medical waste. According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), it was reported that India generated approximately 45,308 tons of biomedical waste between June 2020 and May 2021, owing to increase in use of various diagnostic activities and treatment of COVID-19 patients. According to the Longitudinal Ageing Study in India (LASI), in 2020, it was reported that two in every three geriatric person was diagnosed with a chronic disease. In addition, initiatives taken by governments for effective management of medical waste fuels the market growth. For instance, in 2019, the United States Environmental Protection Agency signed a rule titled “management standards for hazardous waste pharmaceuticals and amendment to the P075 listing for nicotine,” which states streamlined standards for handling hazardous pharmaceuticals waste. Moreover, rise in funding for research activities and high utilization of biomedical products and technology propel growth of the market.

However, high cost of services and transportation provided by emerging key players is expected to restrict the medical waste management market growth during the forecast period.
