The global infectious waste packaging market is steadily projected to rise in the next few years, mainly due to increasing investments for developing the required packaging material. This is expected to create several opportunities from a work based as well as development based perspective. However, to maintain this growth, the investments put in the market need to continue at a strong rate. The number of public as well as private organizations are also increasing around the world, which bode well for the development of the market. Incineration, chemical treatment, autoclaving, etc. are some of the processes associated with this market.
Amongst these processes, most progress is expected to occur for the incineration treatments. Even the market share for this process is expected to be larger than any other activity associated with the infectious waste packaging market. Such growth is mainly due to rise in the initiatives taken by the organizations for medical waste management and other technological developments.
Infectious waste mainly consists of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes, which further are subdivided into several other subclasses. From a regional perspective, the global infectious waste packaging market has an extensive reach in the North American and European regions. This is mainly due to the rising number of old people in these regions. These people could get diagnosed with health problems, thus causing them to end up in hospitals and healthcare centers, and hence ultimately leading to an increase in infectious waste. North America is expected to continue its dominance in this market in the near future. Other than these regions, the infectious waste packaging market has a significant presence in Asia.

Infectious waste packaging is absolutely crucial for the sustainable management of waste. A waste which include pathogens, miscellaneous waste such dialysis unit waste, contaminated equipment, and others with enough virulence and quantity so that exposure to the waste by human or animals could result in infectious disease is called infectious waste. The need for infectious waste packaging follows from the application of up-to-date waste management principles. Infectious waste packaging provides a management plan against infectious waste. Infectious waste packaging finds application in various waste managements which include medical waste, radioactive waste, and pathological waste.
Infectious waste packaging includes different packaging for different types of wastes such as, plastic bags for various solid and semisolid wastes, plastics and glass bottles, tanks or flasks for liquid waste. Packaging mediums used in infectious waste packaging are leak proof which are sealed and impervious to moisture and must be labelled with biohazard symbol. Medical practitioners, laboratory staff, and personnel who deliberately deal with contaminated waste are creating awareness regarding benefits of infectious waste packaging. Government policies of cleanliness give rise to infectious waste packaging market.
