According to a research article published in the Indian Journal of Pharmacy Practice, drug wastage accounted for 2.0% to 3.0% of all drug costs, representing more than US$ 1.0 Bn in drug wastage in the U.S, thus contributing a large amount of pharmaceutical waste. Rise in awareness about the safe disposal of medical waste, well-developed health care facilities across the globe, and improvement in drug discovery and development by pharmaceutical companies that leads to generation of large amounts of medical waste are expected to propel the global medical waste containers market during the forecast period.

The report offers detailed segmentation of global medical waste containers market based on product, waste, medical waste generators, and usage. In terms of product, the market has been classified into chemotherapy containers, biohazard containers, RCRA containers, pharmaceutical containers, and sharp containers. Based on product, the pharmaceutical containers segment dominated the medical waste containers market in 2017 and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period, due to increased investment by key players in the pharmaceutical sectors and increasing R&D activities in the medical field. The biohazard medical waste containers segment is a prominent segment of the global medical waste containers market.

Numerous types of waste generators in the global medical waste containers market are hospitals, clinics & physicians’ offices, long-term care & urgent care centers, pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, and others. Among these, the hospitals segment accounted for a dominant value share in 2017 and is anticipated to continue to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the rising number of invasive surgical procedures across the globe. According to a report published by the American Hospital Association in 2015 on waste prevention and management in hospitals, nearly 5,000 acute care hospitals in the U.S. generate around 7,000 tons of waste every day and spend US$ 10 Bn annually on its disposal. This is one of the major factors for the estimated expansion of the hospitals segment between 2018 and 2026.
