Market Overview:

The global hazardous waste containers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing awareness about environmental protection, stringent regulations for safe disposal of hazardous waste, and growing demand for eco-friendly products. The metal segment is expected to dominate the global hazardous waste containers market in terms of revenue share during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the high durability and resistance against corrosion offered by metal containers as compared to other types of containers such as polyethylene and fiberglass. The hospital segment is expected to account for a major share of the global hazardous waste containers market in terms of revenue during the forecast period.

Global Hazardous Waste Containers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Hazardous waste containers are used to store and contain hazardous wastes. The importance of hazardous waste containers is that they help to protect people and the environment from the harmful effects of hazardous wastes.


Metal is a key raw material used in the manufacturing of containers for hazardous waste. The metal types most commonly used are steel, aluminum and tin. Other metals such as copper, brass and bronze may also be used depending on the application requirements.

The global demand for metal cans has been increasing over the past few years owing to its wide range of applications in food & beverage packaging, pharmaceuticals and chemical industries among others which have been driving its growth factor globally.


Polyethylene is a widely used plastic in the packaging industry. It is resistant to most solvents and has excellent barrier properties to moisture, light, and oxygen. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers are lightweight; have high transparency; strong resistance against acids & bases; low permeability for gas & liquid; and recyclable nature.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) applications. The ICI segment accounted for the largest share in 2016 and is anticipated to witness a significant growth rate over the forecast period. This can be attributed to growing awareness about environmental protection along with increasing government regulations concerning disposal of chemical waste in landfills.

The global increase in the number of hospitals has resulted in an increased demand for medical equipment & devices which have been fueled by rising disposable income levels coupled with improved healthcare facilities & services across various regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa. This has led to an increased use of HWCs at hospitals thereby contributing towards higher revenue generation within this segment.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The U.S., as a developed nation, has higher per capita income and is thus more likely to spend on healthcare facilities across the world. As a result, North America is expected to witness high demand for hazardous waste containers over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow at an exponential rate over the forecast period owing to increasing investments by foreign players coupled with growing medical tourism industry in countries such as India and China.

The European region accounted for 20% of total revenue share in 2017 owing to stringent regulations imposed by various governments across Europe pertaining their disposal practices towards toxic waste materials generated from domestic sources or industrial units under their jurisdiction (elements 4 & 5). However, lack of proper infrastructure and low public acceptance may hinder growth during future years (elements 6 & 7).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the manufacturing sector for hazardous waste containers to store and dispose of various types of wastes in an environmentally friendly manner.
  • Growing awareness among consumers about the benefits of using hazardous waste containers for safe storage and disposal of chemical, pharmaceutical, and other types of wastes.
  • Stringent government regulations on handling and disposing of hazardous wastes are driving the demand for certified hazardous waste containers.
  • Rapid growth in e-commerce is resulting in increased generation of electronic waste that needs to be safely disposed off using certified hazardous waste containers.
