Shutdown of Industrial Units and Reduced Waste Production Hindered Market Augmentation

Most workplaces were functioning at 50% capacity as organizations limited their workforce to minimize human contact. This, in turn, decreased the total amount of waste generated and hindered the industrial waste management market growth.

Experts say the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of managing waste to reduce long-term health risks to people and the environment, which is likely to generate lucrative opportunities for market growth. It has also resulted in a significant rise in medical waste, which mainly constitutes face masks, hand gloves, and protective gear.
