Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Storage, and Waste Management for Consumer Electronics, Computer Equipment, and Mobile Phones: Market Analysis and Forecasts

Electronics Recycling and E-Waste Issues
By: Pike Research

As the adoption of consumer electronics, mobile phones, and computer equipment continues to increase around the world, the business and environmental challenges associated with electronic device disposition at end-of-life (EOL) grow greater and greater. Pike Research anticipates that, as devices become obsolete and are replaced, the total volume of EOL electronics, which is known as e-scrap, will more than double between 2010 and 2025, placing increasing pressure on industry players, governments, and advocacy groups to find new ways to expand electronics recycling and reuse. E-scrap that is not recycled, reused, or stored becomes e-waste and is buried, incinerated, or dumped.


Recycling and reuse is increasing at a significant pace, driven by environmental legislation around the world as well as the sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs of leading electronics manufacturers and service providers. Pike Research expects that the total tonnage of recycled/reused electronics will increase seven-fold over the next 15 years, surpassing the annual volume and weight of devices that become e-waste yet still not stemming the tide of e-waste growth.

This Pike Research report includes a detailed analysis of e-scrap issues facing the electronics industry over the coming years, including an assessment of market and economic factors, legislative issues, environmental concerns, and the strategies of key industry players. The study provides market forecasts through 2025 for unit sales of electronics by category, along with volume and weight of total e-scrap generated as well as the ultimate disposition through recycling, reuse, storage, and e-waste. Also included are detailed interview responses from state environmental management agencies, OEMs and service providers, and e-waste processing companies.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What are the most important stakeholder issues related to e-scrap in terms of administration and compliance?
  • What are key industry players doing internally and externally to address these e-scrap issues?
  • What are the likely volumes of new electronic unit sales by type of equipment over the next 15 years?
  • What will be the volume and weight of scrapped electronic products that will become e-waste, be recycled, reused, or placed in storage based on lifecycle timing?
