Medical Waste Management Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2020 to 2030.

Market Industry Reports (MIR) has published a new report titled “Medical Waste Management Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020–2030.” According to the report, the global medical waste management market accounted for over US$ 6.6 billion in 2019. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2020 to 2030. 

This market growth can be attributed to several factors, which have led to its wide-scale adoption. The growing incidents of infectious diseases coupled with an increasing volume of healthcare waste and the implementation of various regulations for the management of medical waste are anticipated to further contribute to this substantial growth between 2020 and 2030. However, the lack of training for proper disposal is likely to restrain market growth to a certain extent.

To obtain better insights regarding the market scenario, prominent players are focusing on collaborative initiatives with several institutions, research centers, and companies. For instance, in April 2019, Waste Management announced plans to acquire smaller rival Advanced Disposal Services for about $3 billion in cash. This acquisition will result in the growth of Waste Management’s footprint and allow it to deliver unparalleled access to differentiated, sustainable waste management and recycling services to customers of Advanced Disposal Service.

Growing incidents of various diseases have led to increasing treatments and surgeries at hospitals, in turn, increasing the volume of medical waste. Furthermore, the emergence of new diseases has generated the need for new curable drugs for treatment, resulting in a rise in R&D; activities. Pharmaceutical companies will, in turn, support growth of the market over the forecast period.

However, the lack of training for proper waste disposal is one of the major factors hampering market growth. Also, the lack of training with regards to medical waste management poses serious risks to the health of personnel. The major reasons for lack of training are budget constraints, lack of skilled trainers, and lack of willingness to provide training.
