The rise in the use of disposable medical products in healthcare facilities is expected to drive the medical waste management market.In a healthcare setting, most of the products used are meant for single-use to limit cross-contamination among patients and decrease hospital-acquired infection.

The use of single-use or disposal products surged due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.The widely used disposables like surgical gloves, disposable bed sheets, masks, surgical gowns, syringes, intravenous saline bags, and others account for most of the hospital waste.

Therefore, the rise in the use of disposable medical products is expected to drive the medical waste management market.

Low awareness among developing countries is limiting the growth of the medical waste management market.Inadequate knowledge of healthcare professionals and sanitation health workers on biomedical waste regulations and medical waste management protocols is causing improper segregation of waste which is leading to increased hazardous waste, needle prick injuries, and infections like hepatitis which is increasing the load on the medical waste management companies.

Infectious waste (or hazardous medical waste) constitutes around 15 to 25% of total healthcare waste.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in low-income countries, healthcare waste is not separated into hazardous and non-hazardous waste which is causing an increase in the actual quantity of hazardous waste.

Therefore, such a lack of awareness in developing countries is hindering the growth of the medical waste management market.
