With healthcare growing more sophisticated due to the rising population, waste management has become a major challenge. The rate of medical waste generation has surged significantly, mainly due to the burgeoning number of research labs, clinics, hospitals, and diagnostic centers across the globe. In the U.S., hospitals generate close to 5.9 million tons of medical waste per year. This will lead to an increased focus on ensuring the safe disposal of medical waste including contaminated cotton and minimizing infection risks, thereby augmenting demand for biohazard waste bags.

The high prevalence of healthcare-acquired infections is another major factor creating lucrative growth prospects for biohazard bag developers. This growing disease burden will help improve medical fluid bag production and consequently bolster the usage of biohazard disposable bags. Despite the growth trajectory, the lack of awareness regarding the improper disposal of syringes and other hazardous waste may hinder industry development to some extent, especially in low-income countries.
