Market Highlights


The global Electronic Waste Recycling Market is accounted to register a CAGR of 15.9% during the forecast period and is estimated to reach USD 61.1 billion by 2032.


The Electronic Waste Recycling Market refers to the industry involved in the collection, processing, and reuse of electronic waste (e-waste) materials. E-waste consists of discarded electronic devices such as computers, laptops, smartphones, televisions, printers, and other electronic appliances that have reached the end of their useful life or are no longer in use. These devices often contain valuable and hazardous materials that need to be properly managed to minimize environmental impact and promote resource efficiency.


Segment Analysis


The global Electronic Waste Recycling Market has been segmented based Material and Source


Based on the material, the market has been segmented into metals and chemicals, plastics, glass, and others. The metals and chemical material segment hold the largest market share and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the projected period. This can be attributed to the presence of various metals in electronic devices. Metals are a good conductor of electricity and are used in electronic devices to maintain their functionality. Various types of metals and chemicals are used in electronic devices such as copper, silver, gold, steel, palladium, zinc, lead, and mercury due to their high conductivity, durability, and other properties. Copper and steel are the largest materials that can be recovered from electronic waste and have a good value in the market. The major stakeholders benefit from the high recovery rate of metals from electronic wastes compared to other materials. Recycled metals are also profitable as it reduces the cost of buying new raw material and reduce the harmful effect caused by them.


Based on the sources, the market has been segmented into household appliances, entertainment & consumer electronics, IT & telecommunication, medical equipment, and others. Household appliances have always been the major source of electronic wastes recycling for the past few years. This can be attributed to the significant sales of household devices across the globe. The increased disposable income coupled with the surge in affordability has driven its sales worldwide. Moreover, a considerable decline in the prices of household appliances also has boosted its sales and end-use penetration among the consumers.

Regional Analysis


The global Electronic Waste Recycling Market, based on region, has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Europe holds the largest market share in 2022. In sophisticated waste management systems in Europe, the majority of ICT trash is formally recycled and handled. As a result, garbage is collected and handled in a regulated manner, and any dangerous emissions are dealt with. Before incineration, as much as feasible is recycled, and the remainder is disposed of in supervised landfills. At formal recycling, any harmful emissions are controlled both throughout the recycling process and in the official landfill. However, Europe continues to export hazardous waste; around 10% of the ICT trash from the nations surveyed is exported. Western Europe's trash is mostly sent to Eastern Europe, West Africa, and Asia. In addition, Europe's regulated waste management systems address foreign trash, primarily from North America.


The WEEE Directive governs the bulk of e-waste in Europe. The European Union and Norway have adopted this rule. Similar laws exist in Iceland, Switzerland, and several Balkan nations, notably Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. For all six types of e-waste, the WEEE Directive established collection, recycling, reuse, and recovery objectives. The European Union has a well-developed compliance e-waste management infrastructure that allows private operators to collect e-waste in shops and towns and recover recyclable components and dispose of residuals in a compliant and ecologically sound way. This is supported by the relatively long history of EU e-waste regulation, which dates back to early 2003.
