Many times, medical waste is assorted with municipal waste and is buried without adopting any regulations, leading to the release of harmful particles in the atmosphere and negatively affecting the environment. Thus, inappropriate disposal of medical waste is one of the major issues that create a need for biohazard bags for effective medical waste management.

Less than 15 gallon segment accounted for over 15% market share in 2019. Less than 15 gallon capacity bags are used for collecting, transporting and storing biohazardous waste. The 10-gallon biohazard bags are torn and puncture-resistant and provide superior strength for handling different types of medical waste. Additionally, these bags have long-lasting durability that can allow the storage of medical waste for longer duration as compared to others. Moreover, these bags are extensively used to isolate hazardous items accumulated from hospitals, laboratories, and other healthcare facilities. Hence, above-mentioned aspects prove beneficial for the segmental growth.

The plastic material segment will witness around 8.5% CAGR during 2020 to 2026. Plastic material is known for its durability and is resistant to many harsh chemicals as compared to others. Moreover, biohazard bags made from plastic material are usually recyclable and thicker that allows a sufficient amount of medical waste to be stored. However, every plastic material is not recycled. The U.S. Environmental Agency stated that only about 8% of 31 million tons of plastic is recycled every year, and the remaining material goes into waterways and landfills directly, by creating a threat to wildlife. 

Moreover, plastic biohazard bags are used to carry all types of medical waste including infectious waste, biohazard waste, and chemotherapy waste. Thus, increasing usage of plastic material biohazard bags due to its recycling property will boost the segmental growth.
