Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Medical Waste Containers market size is expected to be worth around US$ 2.8 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Medical Waste Containers market size was valued at US$ 1.8 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

The increasing number of diagnostic laboratories, the increasing number of patients suffering from cancer, the rising number of surgical procedures across the globe, and the recent outbreak of COVID-19 are the key factors driving the market.

Medical waste disposal in specific containers is a critical step in maintaining the hygiene and safety standards in hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic laboratories. It ensures that general, infectious, and hazardous hospital remains would not be exposed to the patients as they are transported and managed in a proper systematic way. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has tremendously increased the volume of hospital remains across the globe.

As per the journal published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2020, as per the guidelines issued by the CDC, domestic and hospital remains from observation wards, fever clinics, special examination rooms, laboratories, and isolation wards, especially the nucleic acid testing laboratories, should be marked as COVID-19 related medical remains, and separate containers printed with “COVID-19 infection” should be affixed. In addition, remains from protective facial masks carrying pathogens has also increased to a great extent. Thus, containers with distinct marks were placed in the public areas of the hospital to collect those abandoned masks. Furthermore, an increase in awareness regarding hospital safety standards and increased investments by hospitals in maintaining their cleanliness is also anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period.

Report Highlights

The chemotherapy containers segment held the largest market share of 37.11% in 2020 and is anticipated to witness a considerable growth rate over the forecast period. The growth of the segment is majorly driven by the rising cases of cancer and surgeries of cancer patients across the globe. For instance, as per the report published by the World Health Organization in 2018, around 2.1 million cases of lung cancer, 2.1 million cases of breast cancer, and 1.8 million cases of colorectal cancer were reported globally. Such factors are anticipated to drive the demand for chemotherapy containers, thereby propelling segment growth.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) containers segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The RCRA container is majorly used for the storage of hazardous waste. These containers are less expensive and are less difficult to manage as compared to surface impoundments or tanks. The RCRA containers are movable and allow operators or owners to use only one unit for transportation, disposal, and storage.

The hospitals and private clinics segment of the medical waste containers market held the largest revenue share of 35.5% in 2020. The increasing cases of chronic wounds and cancer and rising number of hospital admissions are the major factors driving the segment. In addition, the increasing number of surgical procedures is also anticipated to positively impact segment growth over the forecast period.

The hospital and private clinics segment is also anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The increasing number of clinics and surgical procedures are the major factors contributing to segment growth over the forecast period.

The general medical waste segment held the largest market share of 35.6% in 2020. The general medical waste majorly includes waste generated from research facilities, health-care establishments, and laboratories. More than 75.02% of the waste produced from hospitals and clinics comprises of general medical waste. The general medical waste is governed by municipal waste disposal mechanisms.

The infectious medical waste segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. Infectious waste generally comprises pathogens (bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi) in an adequate concentration or quantity to cause disease in susceptible hosts. The infectious waste majorly comes from waste from isolation wards, tissue or swabs, and laboratory cultures. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 is one of the major drivers for the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 45.5% in 2020. The region is anticipated to witness a considerable growth rate over the forecast period. An increase in the number of surgeries and healthcare workers is expected to drive the demand for medical waste containers in the region. 

In Asia Pacific, the market is expected to witness the fastest growth rate of 6.10% over the forecast period. The presence of developing countries such as China, India, and Japan is anticipated to boost the market growth in the region. Increasing healthcare infrastructure development in this region and the rising awareness about patient safety and hygiene standards are some of the factors anticipated to drive the market. In India, most of the hospitals have contracts with third parties for medical waste management.
