Furthermore, widening base of middle-income population in developing economies and shifting consumer preferences are resulting in rapid replacement of older versions of an electronic product with a newer version. This, in turn, is boosting the sales of electronic devices. Moreover, electronic device manufacturers follow sustainable disposal practices in order to adequately manage electronic devices at their end-of-life period, such as take-back policy. Such factors are anticipated to work in favor of the market during the forecast period.

Governments across the globe are implementing numerous regulations and policies to effectively manage e-waste. For instance, in India, the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change has mandated that electronic device manufacturers are responsible for recycling and reducing e-waste in the country. Additionally, several other methods are being implemented to minimize e-waste generation, including use of renewable materials, production process modifications, and green packaging options.
