Developments in the E-waste Management Market

NEW YORK, November 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report published by Zion Research, global demand for e-waste management is expected to reach USD 58 billion by 2021, with a compound annual growth rate of 22.7 percent during the forecast period. Global e-waste management market is expected to grow rapidly due to the growing amount of electronic waste each year. Increasing use of electronic products such as televisions, mobile phones, washing machines and various electrical components has pushed demand, as the effects of e-waste on the environment and human health are an important issue.

The importance of e-waste management is explained in a report by Research and Markets. According to the report, the short lifespan of popular electronic products requires the waste management industry to come up with innovative solutions. "The last several decades has brought significant explosion of electronic devices, with advancement in quality of life and communications. For example, transformation of telecom from landline phones to wireless mobile phone is one of the several examples. However, emergence of updated technology so frequently leads to reduced life span of the electronic devices. Electronic products are rapidly becoming obsolete and are being replaced at a very short life span. This reducing life span of electronic device is however a challenge before the technology industry. It serves as a major driver for the emerging e-waste management market. About 70% of the heavy metals in the U.S.A. landfills come from electronics, though only 2% of the trash is electronic waste. Tons of e-waste is exported to Asia and Africa each year for processing," according to the research.
