Global Surgical Waste Management Market 2017-2021

About Surgical Waste Management

Waste that is generated during surgical processes is known as surgical waste. Surgical waste is both hazardous and non-hazardous. Out of the waste generated from surgeries, 85% is non-hazardous and 15% is hazardous. Surgical waste is a huge threat to the environment. Hence, it necessitates proper disposal. Annually, around 250 million surgeries are carried out across the globe, which results in the bulk generation of surgical waste. On average, annually, more than two million tons of surgical waste is being generated. Each day, 5,500 tons of surgical waste is being generated, out of which, approximately 825 tons is hazardous surgical waste. Injections and syringes constitute the bulk of medical waste. Globally, each year, more than 12 billion injections are used, out of which, 30% are for surgical procedures. The mishandling of these injections will lead to the spreading of infectious diseases like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Ebola virus disease (EVD), and other pathogenic problems.
