DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jul 29, 2022–
The “Precious Metals E-Waste Recovery Global Market Report 2022 ” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global precious metals e-waste recovery market is expected to grow from $9.22 billion in 2021 to $9.61 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.28%. The market is expected to reach $11.51 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 4.61%.
The precious metals e-waste recovery market consists of sales of precious metals waste recovery by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that recover precious metals from electrical or electronic devices. Precious metals such as gold, copper, silver, platinum and others are used widely in electronic applications in PCBs of mobile phones, motherboards of computers, and connectors, due to their high conductivity, low-ampere current carriage, high sensitivity, and resistance to corrosion. These precious metals are reprocessed and further re-used.
The main types of precious metals e-waste recovery include palladium, copper, gold, silver, nickel and platinum. Palladium is used in electronics with contacts, circuit boards, and computer chips for multi-layer ceramic (chip) capacitors (MLCC). The precious metals e-waste recovery sources include household appliances, IT and telecommunication, consumer electronics, small industrial tools, professional medical tools.
Asia- Pacific was the largest region in the precious metals e-waste recovery market in 2021. Europe is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
The rising utilization of consumer electronics and home appliances across the globe is the key driver for growth of the precious metals e-waste recovery market. Precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium are used in electrical and electronic devices for their properties such as malleability, high corrosion resistance, high conductivity and others.
The utilization of consumer electronics and home appliances across the globe is rising due to the introduction of technological advanced devices, increasing disposable income, and decreasing prices of consumer electronic devices. For instance, the global electrical and electronics market is expected to grow from $3,077.0 billion in 2021 to $4145.3 billion by 2026. The usage of the electrical and electronic devices increases the quantum of e-waste globally, thus driving the demand for precious metals e-waste recovery.
