Factors Supporting the E-Waste Management Market Growth

With fast rising product innovation, notably in household electronics and appliances like the switch from analogue to digital technologies, monitors, and flat-screen televisions, the e-waste management market is predicted to experience revenue growth. In the next four years, managing e-waste is expected to increase by over 33%, according to the UN. There are now more prospects for the e-waste management sector to flourish thanks to partnerships between top manufacturers like Dell, HP, and Cisco from Japan, China, and England and international groups like Solving the E-waste Problem (StEP). The market for e-waste management is projected to experience revenue development due to an increase in the number of refrigerator sets being discarded from domestic appliances.

The WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) stream, which includes refrigerators, cell phones, laptops, and TVs, is thought to be one of Europe's fastest-growing streams. As WEEE is a combination of parts and materials, due to its hazardous nature, it causes issues with both the environment and human health. Electronic waste requires the EU to regulate e-waste disposal, which is anticipated to spur expansion of the European e-waste management sector.

Governments in China and India have made significant efforts to harvest and recycle metals that pose a harm to both people and the environment. The market expansion in North America is being driven by an increase in the number of electronic items with shorter lifecycles, such as smartphones, laptops, and PCs, which results in a higher volume of e-waste in the region.

E-waste production is rising as a result of the increasing number of electronic gadgets that require ongoing maintenance or become outdated. Additionally, the overall cost of replacing electrical gadgets is lower than that of fixing them. This has led to an increase in the desire to buy new items, which is supporting the e-waste management market's revenue growth.

Lack of Recycling Technologies in many Countries are Main Reasons for Loss of Valuable Resources and Pollution

The technology is helping in production of cheap and affordable appliances, and lifespan of electronic devices is decreasing day by day. As the new devices are relatively cheaper, people are preferring to purchase new devices instead of repairing older ones. People are also keeping up with newer trends in the market, and changing existing devices to the new ones periodically. This is leading to lots of e-waste production, and is causing pollution problems.

The chemical toxicity is increasing due to landfills and seepage of mercury and lead in environment, along with wasting resources as gold, copper, platinum, lithium and silver, which are used in making of parts and circuits. Such wastage might cause supply bottleneck of resources. These metals are recoverable, and there are ways to recycle them, but the recovery is being hampered by the lack of advancement in recycling technologies.
