Global Medical Waste Treatment Market Propelled by Swelling Volume of Waste Material

Medical waste can be primarily treated usingincineration, autoclaves mechanical/chemical Disinfection, microwave and irradiation. Incineration is a process where medical waste undergo controlled burning in a dedicated waste incinerator, italso reduces the volume of waste and eliminate the need of pre-processing the waste.

The global medical waste treatment market is predicted to expand steadily till 2020 due to the increasing volume of waste materials generated and mounting regulatory pressure to judiciously use available raw materials. Medical waste includes discarded medical products such as morgues, lab products, syringes, pathological waste, blood, microbiological waste, and bandages. It can also include hospital waste such as bedding materials, padding, and other similar products. Products used for the treatment of patients also fall under the medical waste category. Animal models used for research activities are also discarded after the research, thus falling under the medical waste category. 
The global medical waste treatment market can be segmented on the basis of geography and type. By geography, the global medical waste treatment market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. Leading companies in the global medical waste treatment market offer waste control measures to reduce the volume of medical waste materials dumped in landfills and control extra consumption of raw materials. Hospitals, laboratories, clinics, dispensaries, and nursing homes are some of the primary sources of medical waste.

The Many Ways to Treat Medical Waste
By type, the global medical waste treatment market is classified into pathological waste, radioactive waste, infectious waste, laboratory waste, sharps waste, biodegradable waste, genotoxic waste, and recyclable waste. Improper disposal or mishandling of medical waste can lead to many infections, injuries, and diseases. Expensive medical waste treatments will act as the major restraint for the global medical waste treatment market. However, the availability of many alternatives in medical waste treatment will propel the growth of the global medical waste treatment market during the forecast period. 
Leading companies in the market have introduced many ways to treat medical waste. Medical waste is primarily treated by using autoclaves chemical/mechanical disinfection, incineration, irradiation, and microwave. Incineration is a procedure where the medical waste is destroyed through controlled burning in a waste burner. Incineration reduces reliance on regular pre-processing procedures and decreases the volume of medical waste. The autoclave-based chemical/mechanical technique applies heat and pressure on the waste material in a dedicated closed chamber to reduce the volume of waste materials. Microwave, on the other hand, is a technique where the medical waste is initially shredded and then mixed in water. The mixture is heated in a microwave at a specific temperature. The microwave is the most inexpensive form of medical waste treatment, thus it is the most used one.
