Report Overview @

Key players are investing in the development & commercialization of sharps containers to reduce incidences of infectious disorders caused due to improper disposal methods of metal sharps by health care workers. In February 2018, Becton, Dickinson and Company, a leading sharps containers manufacturer, launched a new program to help ensure proper containment of household sharps in Los Angeles (the U.S.). Rise in number of surgical procedures which generate significant amount of sharps waste are estimated to boost the sharps containers market by 2025. However, lack of awareness about proper methods of sharps waste containment & disposal in developing nations is likely to hamper the sharps containers market during the forecast period.

The global sharps containers market is segmented on the basis of product type, usage type, waste type, medical waste generators, distribution channel, size, and region. In terms of product type, the global sharps containers market is divided into patient room containers, phlebotomy containers, and multipurpose containers. Multipurpose containers accounted for the largest share of the market in 2016, and is estimated to continue to dominate the market during the forecast period. Rise in demand for sharps containers by large quantity waste generators such as hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers is expected to boost the multipurpose containers segment during the forecast period. Based on waste type, the global sharps containers market is classified into infectious & pathological waste, sharps waste, pharmaceutical waste, and non-infectious & other waste types. In 2016, the sharps waste segment dominated the market with highest revenue, due to improved regulatory policies by governments for safe disposal of contaminated sharps. However, the non-infectious & other waste types segment is projected to expand at a significant CAGR from 2017 to 2025. The medical waste generators segment is divided into hospitals, clinics & physician’s offices, pharmaceutical companies, long-term care & urgent care centers, pharmacies, and others. The hospitals segment accounted for the highest share of the market in 2016. Rise in hospitalizations across the globe due to favorable reimbursement policies in private and public hospitals is estimated to increase the amount of sharps waste in hospitals.

In terms of usage type, the global sharps containers market is bifurcated into disposable and reusable. The reusable segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, which is attributable to the efficient distribution network of reusable sharps containers manufacturers. Based on distribution channels, the global sharps containers market is categorized into direct sale, online sale, and retail sale. The direct sale segment is anticipated to expand at a significant growth rate from 2017 to 2025.

In terms of container size, the global sharps containers market is classified into 1-2 gallons, 2-4 gallons, 4-8 gallons, and other sizes. The 1-2 gallons segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2016, due to rise in adoption for pocket sharps containers in developed countries. However, emergence of local & regional players in the sharps containers market to cater to the high unmet needs by small & medium quantity waste generators is estimated to drive the 2-4 gallons segment by 2025.

However, increase in usage of metal sharps in Asia due to rise in surgical procedures is estimated to fuel the market in Asia Pacific.
