Wastes that cause dioxin pollution and mercury pollution are hazardous to the environment, and their disposal is among top priorities for reducing pollution. For environmental safety, the treatment and proper disposal of medical waste have been made compulsory by the government of many countries. Medical waste management is also necessary for keeping the hospital premises clean as dirty surroundings can cause patients as well as medical staff to suffer from new diseases.

During the forecast period, Europe can remain a leading regional market due to the strong support given by governments in European countries to the initiatives to make medical waste nontoxic and harmless to the environment. The strongest economies in this region that can become strong markets are France, Germany, and the UK.

During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific is likely to become the fastest-growing regional market due to the rapid growth of the healthcare sector in developing countries like China, Indonesia, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, and Taiwan. The growing number of hospitals in these countries can drive market in the Asia Pacific region.

In the MEA region, the market is limited due to limited availability of medical facilities, lack of awareness, lack of sanitation as well as hygiene.
