Summary

GBI Research’s new report, “E-waste Management Market to 2020 - Expansion of Domestic Electronics Sector to Drive Asia Pacific Growth Despite Ban on Illegal Exports from Developed Countries” provides key information and analysis on the market opportunities in the e-waste management industry. The report provides key market trends and competitive landscape analysis for the e-waste management market, and examines the current and forecast data for the e-waste recovery market. The research discusses market dynamics in detail by providing analysis of the key drivers, restraints and challenges of the e-waste management market. It segments the global e-waste recovery market on the basis of materials recovered and geography.

E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams, globally. The rate of generation of e-waste is high in both developed and developing economies. The main reason for the high growth rate in developing countries is the increasing market penetration of electrical and electronics goods. In developed economies, the rate of e-waste generation is high because of the high obsolescence rate and high replacement rate of electrical and electronics items. GBI Research expects stringent government regulations pertaining to e-waste management and increasing demand for the recycled material to drive the e-waste management market. Key manufacturers such as Apple Inc., Dell Inc. and Hewlett Packard Development Company (HP) are taking steps to ensure the safe and environmentally friendly disposal of their discarded products.

This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GBI Research’s team of industry experts.
