Medical waste service providers collect, treat and dispose of a wide range of medical waste produced by medical service organisations within the health sector. Demand for industry services has increased at a steady rate over the past five years, as downstream demand from hospitals and other medical service providers has grown steadily. This has been due to general population growth, continued demand for medical services and increased hospital and medical funding from governments. Reduced demand from pharmaceutical companies and governments has only had minor effects on the industry.
