Electronic Waste Management Services in India

Electronic Waste Management Services in India

Increased consumerism, growth of the Information Technology (IT) sector, and the high replacement rate of old electronic devices with new ones will stimulate market growth during the forecast period 2015–2019.

The biggest challenge in Electronic Waste (e-waste) management is collection of waste from consumers. Collection of e-waste requires high awareness among consumers about safe disposal and a strong logistics network.

E-waste market comprises a huge base of informal recyclers, who represent a threat to the organised collection network. Currently, there are very few organised participants holding a minor share in the overall market.

The market is full of opportunities as a majority of waste remains untreated. With technology penetration of more than 􂀀% in urban India, the greatest potential lies in this part of the country.
