The global medical waste management market size is projected to reach USD 9.0 billion by 2025 from USD 6.8 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.6%.

The increasing volume of healthcare waste and the growing geriatric and obese populations are the major factors driving the growth of the global medical waste management market.

The medical waste management market by service is categorized into collection, transportation, and storage services; treatment & disposal services; and recycling services. The collection, transportation, and storage services segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is mainly driven by an increasing amount of waste generated by healthcare facilities and the rising number of surgeries performed in the hospitals.

The offsite treatment segment is estimated to grow at a rapid rate during the analysis period

On the basis of the treatment site, the medical waste management market is segmented into offsite and onsite treatment. The offsite treatment segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global medical waste management market in 2019. Factors such as the increasing number of conferences and high costs associated with onsite medical waste treatment are driving the growth of the offsite treatment segment.

Asia Pacific is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the study period

Geographically, the medical waste management market is dominated by North America, which is then followed by Europe for 2019.
