The report includes anoverview of products in the medical waste market, offers detailed market analyses, and discussescompetitive environments. The study has information about significant products and players,issues and trends influencing the marketplace as well as other data impacting the medical wasteindustry.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYAs the trend continues to evolve worldwide with regards to the regulation of medical waste, inparticular infectious medical waste, product suppliers, service providers and generators of medicalwaste will need to be diligent in addressing issues affecting this topic. After the closing of morethan 3,600 medical waste incinerators in the United States during the 12 year period from 1995 to2007, the industry was faced with finding alternatives to incineration, noted by most as the mostcost-effective and efficient method of disposing of medical waste. Now facilities turn to servicecompanies, autoclave methods, and even some microwave solutions to meet the steady flow ofmedical 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 lastupdate in 2007. Several challenges still exist in the medical waste market, including limited optionsin on-site treatment and extravagant costs for removal of waste by service companies. Industryexperts have stressed the benefits of reducing the waste generated and taking advantage ofrecycling opportunities to be the most beneficial for saving. However, this approach can take yearsto 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.SCOPE OF THE REPORTThis study will be a helpful business tool, providing a thorough evaluation of the regulated medicalwaste market.
