Medical Waste Management Market Value and Growth Analysis (2021 - 2026)

The size of the global Medical waste management market is expected to grow from $ 9.5 billion in 2026 to $ 6.3 billion in 2021, with a CAGR of 6.2%.

Management of medical waste depends on the efficiency of waste sorting. If segregation is not appropriate, there is always a risk that a small amount of hazardous waste will mix with a large amount of medical waste, making the entire volume of hazardous waste.

There are different types of waste on the medical waste management market, such as sharps, chemical waste, pathological waste, industrial waste, and other types of waste. Waste management on a larger scale is related to the collection, transport, disposal, reduction, monitoring and recycling of used sanitary materials. Medical waste is generated by activities such as diagnosis, treatment (including surgery), and other disease prevention measures. It is mandatory to treat various pathogens and dangerous chemicals produced during medical operations. The medical waste management team converts infectious, contaminated and hazardous medical waste into safe and reusable products and materials.

Medical Waste Management Market Trends:

The growth of the entire medical and healthcare industry is causing demand for these systems. In addition, the increasing prevalence of diseases such as cancer and other chronic disorders and the increase in the geriatric population and traffic accidents are generating a greater demand for these advanced medical solutions. Therefore, the commercial availability of advanced medical solutions coupled with an expanding patient base is the source of a large amount of waste and by-products.

Recent Developments in the Medical Waste Management Market:

  • The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Government of India have partnered to implement a US $ 40 million pilot project to help the country's healthcare system effectively manage and dispose of hazardous medical waste .
  • The Ministry of the Environment published the latest Biomedical Waste Management Rules, that will introduce a broader and more comprehensive routine for the management of biological waste.

Medical Waste Management Market Drivers:

The drivers of this market are the increase in research and development activities related to health care, the increase in the rate of spending on health care and treatment, and the increasing prevalence of communicable diseases. The increasing prevalence of diseases and the number of patients are the main cause of the increase in medical waste and therefore it is driving the growth of the market. In addition, the growth of the market is also reflected in the efficient supply of inventory necessary for the daily operation of hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centers. This results in the generation of more waste. These by-products and wastes require a suitable system or service for the collection, transport, disposal and recycling of specific materials or by-products if necessary. The demand for the use of cost-effective and environmentally friendly non-incineration technologies is increasing, as serious problems, such as the release of toxins into the air through incineration technology, are considered the main method of medical waste treatment. This innovative technology for medical waste is driving overall market growth. The medical waste management market is driven by an aging population, strict regulations for medical waste management, and the production of a large quantity of medical waste by various end users. In addition, the growing demand for safe waste management through an environmentally friendly treatment process further drives the growth of the market. The rapid growth of the healthcare sector would result in the generation of an increased quantity of medical waste, providing a significant growth opportunity for the market.

Medical Waste Management Market Restraints:

A radical shift in the market from large players to smaller local players is expected to hamper growth. Developing countries invest a large amount of capital to adopt sophisticated technologies to help reduce pollution and other dangerous effects on the ecosystem during treatment and disposal. However, these countries lack clear and strict guidelines and regulations for the management of medical waste, making it difficult for the market to grow.

Opportunities in the Medical Waste Management Market:

Some of the treatment, disposal and recycling procedures release gases and harmful compounds such as mercury and oxides. These dangerous compounds can cause soil, air and water contamination, leading to the spread of infectious agents that can cause cancer. Therefore, factors such as the development and adoption of advanced processing, disposal and recycling techniques for these materials are the engine of growth. Additionally, government initiatives to support financing of medical waste management programs in emerging markets are expected to drive growth. There are many factors that motivate, constrain and create opportunities for the global healthcare waste management market. The growing concern for the use of safe and environmentally friendly waste management and treatment processes is expected to drive the market in the coming years. Furthermore, the growing healthcare industry would thus generate more medical waste, creating opportunities for the market.

Challenges in the Medical Waste Management Market:

In the United States and European countries, due to strict regulations, most medical waste management service providers require permits, approvals, certificates, and other types of government permits from all jurisdictions in which they operate. Regulated waste disposal costs 10 times more than unregulated waste disposal. As the amount of medical waste produced increases, reducing regulated medical waste from healthcare facilities is a challenge.

Medical Waste Management Market Segmentation:

By Service:

  • Collection
  • Treatment
  • Disposable
  • Incineration
  • Recycling

The collection, transportation and storage services sectorheld the biggest industry share in  the year 2019.

By Type Of Waste:

  • Non-hazardous
  • Infectious
  • Pharmaceuticals

The non-hazardous waste segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019. Large amounts of non-hazardous waste are generated in healthcare facilities around the world; therefore, the emphasis is on efficient management.

By Treatment Site:

  • Offsite
  • Onsite
