GLOBAL E-WASTE MANAGEMENT MARKET FORECAST 2021-2028

According to Inkwood Research, the global e-waste management market will reach $100566.03 million by 2028 in terms of revenue, growing at a CAGR of 12.37%. In terms of volume, the market is expected to reach $72.85 million tons by 2028, projecting a CAGR of 5.14% during the forecast period, 2021-2028.

E-waste management refers to the recycling, resale, reuse, or disposal of electronic and electrical devices. There is an increase in the number of electrical and electronic industries, leading to an increasing volume of e-waste. Electronic devices' increased obsolescence and the customers' growing purchasing power have tremendously added to e-waste each year.

Key drivers of the global e-waste management market growth are:

  • Reduced life span of electronic devices 
  • Scarcity of sources of precious metals    
  • Stringent regulatory standards     
    • The rapid growth in the volume of e-waste has led regulatory bodies to tighten the rules for handling hazardous e-waste materials. The safety measures quantify the concentration of toxic chemicals that can be released into the environment. To realize such measures, governments worldwide encourage private companies to enter this market.

Key market growth restraining factors:

  • Increasing recycling costs incurred due to inadequacy of infrastructure      
  • Less e-waste collection zones     
    • Globally, the dearth of e-waste collection centers and processing mechanisms have been posing problems in e-waste recycling. Many outdated products are either left in warehouses and storerooms or thrown in the trash, due to the absence of such systems. So to improve the situation, the mechanism must be formed for periodic collection of e-waste.
  • Low awareness in developed regions

The report scope of the global e-waste management market covers the segmentation analysis of material type, source type, and application.

Market by Material Type:

  • Metal
    • Metal is the dominating material type in terms of revenue and volume.
    • Electronic scrap has increased over the past decade due to revolutionary changes in the electric and electronic sectors. The incineration and recycling of these materials have gained high traction.
    • Moreover, the rising health hazards, such as kidney damage, bronchitis, and other diseases, due to the scarce discharge of toxic materials from incineration and scrap have increased the need for efficient scrap management techniques.
  • Plastic
    • Plastic is the fastest-growing material type during the forecast period.
    • Despite several technological developments, e-waste plastic recycling is largely hindered due to the presence of flame retardants. The growing development of e-waste management initiatives, especially in developing countries, is a major factor that drives the growth of the plastic segment in the global e-waste management market.
  • Glass
  • Others

Geographically, the global e-waste management market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

  • North America: The United States and Canada
    • North America is the fastest-growing region during the forecast period, in terms of revenue and volume.
    • For the last two decades, North America has witnessed a tremendous increase in e-waste each year due to continuous information and communication technology advancements. 
    • The recycling rate in this region is very low (10-15%) due to a strict regulatory framework in the past. This situation is radically changing with the development of various regulatory policies across the North American region.
  • Europe: The United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Russia, Belgium, Poland, and Rest of Europe
  • Asia-Pacific: China, Japan, India, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia & New Zealand, and Rest of Asia-Pacific
  • Rest of World: Latin America, Middle East & Africa

The major players in the global e-waste management market are:

  • Electronic Recyclers International Inc
  • Boliden AB
  • Aurubis AG
  • Enviro-Hub Holdings Limited
  • LifeSpan Technology Recycling Inc
  • Others

Key strategies adopted by some of these companies:
