Global Asbestos Disposal Bag Market: An Overview

Asbestos disposal bags are used for removal or safe disposal of asbestos or lead-containing waste. Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance, and therefore its disposal needs appropriate solutions so that it doesn’t contaminate the landfills with carcinogens. It is most prominently used at construction sites for insulation, weatherproofing and flame retarding applications. Attributing to its carcinogenic nature, asbestos disposal is a process governed by several regulatory bodies. Asbestos containing material disseminates in the air with ease, this makes the disposal process trickier.

Depending upon the asbestos content, handling and disposal methods vary. Fibrous waste is kept in asbestos disposal bags which then undergoes solidification and stabilization before going to the landfill. Usually, these bags are made up of industrial grade polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) and have standard 4 or 6 mil thickness. While the non-fibrous material is crushed, solidified, and then stabilized to a fixed binder ratio for disposal in landfills.

Global Asbestos Disposal Bag Market: Dynamics

With the rising concerns for safe disposal solutions of hazardous waste, the demand for asbestos disposal bags is anticipated to have a positive outlook during the forecast period. Depending upon the asbestos content present in the waste, regulations for disposal vary accordingly. Moreover, manufacturers are providing asbestos disposal bags with printed warning messages as well. Printed asbestos disposal bags are expected to gain traction in the coming years as they are labeled with a disclaimer that the bag contains toxic waste.

Several unorganized regional players in the emerging economies are expected to contribute to the global asbestos disposal bags market during the forecast period. Although they would not be able to compete directly with the Tier 1 players, they can cause a shift in product pricing trends. However, the manufacturers need to comply with the regulations laid by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which might restrict the entry in the global asbestos disposal bags market. Furthermore, the threat of substitutes for asbestos disposal bags is fairly low as the asbestos containing material removal guidelines have strict norms laid by regulatory bodies.
