Current and Future Trend of E-Waste Management in India

E-Waste or Electronic Waste is generated by old, discarded or obsolete electronic products. Electronic waste is highly toxic in nature as it contains hazardous metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, etc. In India as well as other developing countries, majority of the electronic products are not recycled, which poses a serious environment and health risk.

According to a recently published report by TechSci Research, "India E-Waste Management Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2019", the country's E-Waste market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 30.6% during 2014-19. The southern and western regions are the largest contributing regions in the country's E-Waste market due to the presence of various IT hubs such as Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. However, the country's western and northern regions are also growing at a significant rate due to introduction of new recycling facilities, especially in Delhi/NCR region.

India's E-Waste market has been divided into various segments including IT and Telecom, Large Household Appliances and Consumer Electronics. Some of the key products generating most of the E-Waste in the country include PCs, mobile phones, refrigerators, washing machines, laptops, televisions, etc. Attero, Ecoreco, SIMS Recycling, Earth Sense Recycle, and TSS-AMM are the major E-Waste recycling and management players operating in the country. These players are focusing on increasing consumer awareness, while also working towards bridging the gap between the organised and unorganised E-Waste management market in India. The growing e-waste market will create a lot of opportunities for E-Waste Collectors.
