The rise of the worldwide healthcare industry has increased medical waste significantly. Analysts consider it as the prime reason for the growth of the global medical waste management market. Apart from this, the growing global geriatric population base is another factor driving this worldwide market. On the other hand, the high initial investment for waste management systems, coupled with an extremely competitive market scenario, is likely to hamper the market's growth over the forecast period, states the report.
The report has analyzed the global market for medical waste management on the basis of waste generators and activity types. Collection, processing, and disposal are the three main segments of this market by activity. The waste collection segment led the global market in 2012 and was closely followed by the disposal and processing segments.Based on waste generators, large quantity generators (LQG) and small quantity generators (SQG) are the two main categories of the global medical waste management market. Among both, the LQG segment occupied the biggest share in the overall market in 2012. However, the SQG segment has been projected to report a higher CAGR over the forecast period.
