Global E-Waste Management Market, Material (Metals, Plastic, & Glass), Sources (Household Appliances, Entertainment & Consumer Electronics, IT & Telecommunication), industry size, share, growth, trends and forecast 2015-2021

The global e waste management market is expected to reach $5785 million by 2021 growing at a CAGR of 20.8% during 2015- 2021. The reportedly growing amount of e waste has become a major challenge for both developed and developing economies. The shortening life span of the electrical and electronic equipment and the rapid technological advancements are the major driving force for the global e waste management market. E-waste comprises discarded electronic appliances, of which computers and mobile telephones have a disproportionately large number because of their short lifespan. The global production of e waste was estimated to be 41.8 million MT in 2014, with most E-waste being produced in Europe, the United States and Australasia. China is world’s largest importer of electronic waste.

Currently most e waste produced is disposed into landfills. Effective reprocessing technology, which recovers the valuable materials with minimal environmental impact, is expensive and is considered as the major restraint for the e waste market. However, government initiatives across the world for devolving recycling infrastructure for electronic waste management are the key opportunity before the players.
