Although the volume of e-waste is multiplying, the quality of e-waste is getting affected, as devices are becoming smaller and smaller as a result of product developments. As a result, these products contain very little amounts of precious metals, which is lowering the value of materials in the e-scrap recycling market. Hence, companies in the e-scrap recycling market are collaborating with non-profit trade associations such as ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries) to increase awareness about e-waste recycling challenges, and are participating in developmental programs to formulate strategies.

After Europe, Asia Pacific is projected to maintain its position as the second-highest region in terms of recycling volume, with an estimated output of ~5,200 thousand metric tons in the e-scrap recycling market by the year 2027. Since India is one of the rapidly developing economies in Asia Pacific, manufacturers are increasing their focus in the region. As such, there is growing demand for a well-designed and well-regulated e-waste recovery regime in India, as the country is highly deficient in terms of precious metals. Hence, companies in the electronic scrap recycling market can tap into incremental opportunities in India and gain profits, as labour is relatively cheaper in comparison with developed economies.

Increased Use of Electronic Products and Shorter Product Life-cycle: A Key Driver

- The demand for electronic and electrical equipment has risen drastically with advancements in technology. Persistent innovations in electronic and electrical technologies have further shortened the life of electronics and electrical products.
- E-scrap primarily comprises laptops, computers, mobile phones, television sets, and other electrical or electronic household appliances. The global production of e-scrap is increasing rapidly, and it is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.
- Additionally, the presence of various precious metals such as gold, silver, palladium, tantalum, and gallium makes e-waste attractive for recycling. Thus, most companies in the field are switching to the electronics recycling business, thus boosting the e-scrap recycling market.
