The report includes an overview of products in the medical waste market, offers detailed market analyses, and discusses competitive environments. The study has information about significant products and players, issues and trends influencing the marketplace as well as other data impacting the medical waste industry.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
As the trend continues to evolve worldwide with regards to the regulation of medical waste, in particular infectious medical waste, product suppliers, service providers and generators of medical waste will need to be diligent in addressing issues affecting this topic. After the closing of more than 3,600
medical waste incinerators in the United States during the 12 year period from 1995 to 2007, the industry was faced with finding alternatives to incineration, noted by most as the most cost-effective and efficient method of disposing of medical waste. Now facilities turn to service companies, autoclave methods, and even some microwave solutions to meet the steady flow of medical waste generated by a growing health care and pharmaceutical industry.
This report will evaluate the industry for 2012 and discuss advances in the market since the last update in 2007. Several challenges still exist in the medical waste market, including limited options in on-site treatment and extravagant costs for removal of waste by service companies. Industry experts have stressed the benefits of reducing the waste generated and taking advantage of recycling opportunities to be the most beneficial for saving. However, this approach can take years to implement in many facilities, particularly in high bed count hospitals. The need for cost-effective, efficient solutions continues to be in high demand by facilities nationwide.
