COVID-19 Impact:

Halt on E-waste Recycling and Collection to Impede Market Progress

This industry is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to a halt on e-waste recycling and collection. Furthermore, the sudden spike in COVID-19 infections led to a halt on production activities. Moreover, trade restrictions resulted in lower economic progress and limited mobility. However, the resumption of lockdown restrictions allowed manufacturers to bolster their activities and elevate their market position. These factors allowed the industry’s growth.


Small Equipment Segment to Dominate Attributable to its Robust Demand

By category, the market is segmented into temperature exchange equipment, screens and monitors, lamps, large equipment, small equipment, and small IT and telecommunication equipment. The small equipment segment is expected to dominate due to its increasing adoption.

Drivers and Restraints

Strict Guidelines Regarding E-waste Disposal to Foster Market Progress

E-waste management is an initiative aimed at effectively managing e-waste creation.

These factors may drive the e-waste management market growth.

However, lack of awareness regarding e-waste disposal is expected to hinder the industry’s growth.
