Rigid environment and safety guidelines and regulations for handling and processing of medical waste have been created across all the developed regions of the world. Healthcare facilities and pharmaceutical manufacturers are the largest producers of medical waste. Since the healthcare infrastructure of the developed world is well established, compliance to the guidelines form a considerable component of overall hospital and medical facility management in these regions. Compliance to such stringent rules has urged healthcare facilities to shift their activities from on-site waste management to off-site options through contractual arrangements, in order to augment overall administrative efficiency and ensure safety.

Through outsourcing of medical waste management activities, it is ensured that highly skilled workers collect, handle, treat and dispose medical waste in a cost effective way while simultaneously assuring environmental and human safety. Some of the prime observations in this Industry are:

Large hospitals and outpatient facilities are the largest generators of medical waste
Incineration in the most common method of medical waste treatment
Preference for on-site medical waste treatment will drop in the future in the view of cost management and administrative convenience
Outsourcing of medical waste management processes is majorly an outcome of cost constraints in planning medical facilities since the economic upset in 2008
The Industry in developed regions is fragmented with several local companies exhibiting rigorous Industry activities
Moreover, emerging Industrys of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East Africa will be the fastest developing Industry in the view of the rapid infrastructure development and healthcare expenditure. Growing awareness in these regions has also urged the governments for developing well-defined regulations for medical waste management.
