Electronic waste (e-waste) primarily includes discarded motherboards, computer monitors, headphones, mobile phones, ACs, refrigerators, and among others. Though, rapid growth in technology along with continuous innovations in electronics sector has resulted in the fastest growing waste streams. Moreover, major economies across the globe such as the US, China, Japan, Germany, and India are encountered to produce the highest amount of e-waste in 2017. Although, it is estimated that due to poor extraction techniques, only 20% of the global e-waste have been recycled. Considering the current scenario, many emerging economies are developing an integrated solution to manage the e-waste

Key findings of the report:

  • The global electronic waste (e-waste) management market is estimated to reach 65.5 Million Tons by 2025, while augmenting with a CAGR of 4.4%
  • Based on Type, disposable type e-waste dominated the market in 2018, and is projected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. However, recycled type e-waste is anticipated to exhibit a substantial growth from 2019-2025.
  • Based on material, metal segment is accounted to hold the largest market share in 2018, and is likely to emerge as the fastest growing segment over the forecast period
  • On the basis of end-use, the consumer electronics industry held the major market share in 2018, owing to the decreased prices of consumer electronics along with increasing disposable income. Whereas, the IT & Telecomm industry is likely to augment with the highest CAGR during 2019-2025.
  • Geographically, North America held the major market share in 2018, followed by Europe. However, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during 2019-2025.

Government policy framework poised to augment the market during the forecast period

Technological advancements in consumer electronics is gaining momentum, however it has also resulted in the rising volume of e-waste owing to their short life-span. Many legislations as well as strategies are paving the way to cope with challenges of e-waste management. The incorporation of circular economy in electronics and ICT sector aids in managing e-waste effectively. Additionally, extended producer responsibility (EPR), a baseline policy tool has been introduced in India for e-waste management. As per this policy, it is mandatory for the producers to conduct awareness programs, collect e-waste to reach the targets, and check recycling process. Likewise, Latin America and Middle East & Africa are also supporting and following certain regulations to manage the e-waste.
