Insights on Global E-waste Recycling Market Forecast to 2028

DUBLIN, May 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The report “Electronic Waste Recycling Market Forecast to 2028 – Impact of COVID-19 and Global Analysis by Product Type, Material Type Processed and Geography” has been added to from offer.

According to this report, the e-waste recycling market is expected to reach $8,199.04 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 14.3% from 2021 to 2028.

The widespread use of electronic products and devices in the consumer electronics industry necessitates the effective disposal of these gadgets. Stringent rules governing the safe disposal and management of e-waste recycling are driving the e-waste recycling market. According to the United Nations, global volumes of electronic waste increased by 21% between 2004 and 2019. In 2019, the world dumped 53.6 million metric tons of electronic waste, of which only 17.4% was recycled. This propels the growth of the e-waste recycling market.

Electronic waste contains precious metals such as silver, gold, palladium, platinum, indium and gallium. These unique elements are regularly used in the manufacture of consumer gadgets and computer and communication systems. The prices of these metals are high, due to their scarcity. This is driving the demand for metal-based devices that can be reused, refurbished or recycled.

Disposing of e-waste in the vicinity harms the environment. For example, lead is a neurotoxin found in about 4 to 8 pounds of old televisions and cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors. If not disposed of or recycled properly, it can seep onto the earth’s surface, rendering the soil of that land infertile. Additionally, a huge volume of e-waste is transported to developing countries from developed countries every year. According to the EPA, in 2019, 3.75 to 10.72 million tons of e-waste were shipped to China. The transport of electronic waste has a negative impact on the environment and the people involved in the transport due to the disposal of dangerous chemicals, such as lead. This poses the need for growth in the growth of the e-waste recycling market.

According to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and Pacific Region (ESCAP), APAC contributed 46.46% of global e-waste generated in 2019, or 24.9 million metric tons of e-waste by volume. In addition to generating such a huge amount of e-waste, developing countries like China also import e-waste from developed countries like the United States. However, swift government initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of e-waste is propelling the growth of the e-waste recycling market in the region. For example, the Singapore the government has installed more than 300 e-waste recycling bins across the country in various locations such as city centers, malls and supermarkets in July 2021. The regulator aims to collect waste on a quarterly basis while also offering door-to-door collection services for major appliances. Such initiatives are expected to increase the demand for e-waste recycling, thereby providing lucrative opportunities for e-waste recycling market players in the region.

The e-waste recycling market is segmented on the basis of product type, material processed, and geography. On the basis of product type, the e-waste recycling market is segmented into IT & Telecom Equipment, Small Appliances, Major Appliances, Consumer Electronics and Others. The e-waste recycling market, by material processed, is segmented into metal, glass, plastic and others.
