Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Recycle, reduce, reuse

The Medical Device Cleaning and Recycling industry has grown in popularity during the five years to 2012. The Great Recession was a strong boon to the industry because hospitals were not only trying to reduce costs, but also trying to save margins that were falling due to low patient numbers as healthcare coverage fell. Hospitals will continue to look to cheaper recycled devices during slow economic recovery, and aspects of the 2010 healthcare reform will start to benefit the industry in 2014.

What is the Medical Device Cleaning & Recycling industry?

This industry owns and operates medical waste reprocessing centers where reusable medical waste is recycled, cleaned, recalibrated, repackaged and resterilized. Industry firms then sell the goods back to hospitals and medical suppliers.
