What restraints is the Disposable Medical Supplies Market subject to?

  • “Rising Environmental Concerns”

Disposable devices are commonly utilized in the healthcare industry, owing to the need for infection-free medical procedures. Plastics are commonly utilized in the production of many disposable medical supplies due to its wide range of uses and low cost. Hospitals generate tons of waste from disposable medical supplies, which is hard to recycle and is harmful to the environment because plastic is not biodegradable. However, recycling of this waste is governed by strict rules, so it is still very difficult for recyclers to adhere to these rules and as a result, large portions of disposable medical supplies waste remain unrecycled. The increase in waste, and insufficient reimbursement for these disposable medical supplies, are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.
