Rise in elderly population, development of advanced manufacturing techniques for medical & drugs equipment

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2021 / — According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, the global Medical Waste Management Market is forecasted to grow at a rate of 5.3% from USD 11.92 Billion in 2019 to USD 18.34 Billion in 2027. The study talks about the growing population across the globe, which in turn increases the number of patients, resulting in the rising volume of medical waste. Hence there is a requirement of proper management of the medical waste that is generated at an ever-growing rate. Medical waste is a type that contains infectious materials that are toxic and can cause multiple types of diseases. This medical waste is generated by health care facilities like physician’s offices, hospitals, dental practices, clinics, and research facilities. Medical waste can contain things like blood, bodily fluids, and other contaminants. Medical waste management refers to the proper processing of the waste material generated by the various health care institutions. The emergence of medical waste management has led to the prevention of the release of toxic compounds into water and land. Medical waste management is done by treating waste material by adopting an environment-friendly treatment procedure. It also involves developing various methodologies that are environment-friendly.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 16 billion injections are used every year across the world, but not all syringes and needles are disposed of appropriately. Rising concerns over employing Eco-friendly and safe management and treatment process, growing health care industry, development of innovative technology for medical waste management, increasing number of government initiatives, risk and high cost of maintaining the equipment in the hospitals and other medical facilities, and rise in elderly population resulting in higher health care demands are some of the key factors propelling market growth in the industry. However, a shift in the market from more significant players to smaller size players, lack of guidelines, and management of medical waste and availability of advanced substitute products of waste management techniques are the major hindrance for market growth during 2019-2027.
