What do we know about Electronics Recycling in 2017?
Electronics recycling from the world is growing as the industry matures and consolidates. The future of electronic equipment which recycles globally – will be driven by electronics engineering, valuable metals, and business structure, especially. The latest information on the business – from a poll conducted by the International Data Corporation and sponsored by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries – discovered that the silicon field handled approximately 3.5 million tons of electronic equipment with earnings of $5 billion and immediately used 30,000 individuals – and that it’s been growing at about 20% yearly for the last decade.
Electronics Technology Personal computer gear has dominated volumes handled by the Electronic Equipment industry. The IDC study noted that over 60% by weight of business input volumes was Computer equipment. Monitors and CRT televisions are a portion of the input volumes in the flow – up to 75% of the Consumer electronic mail flow. What do these technologies trends mean the electronics business? Do these advances in engineering, which lead to size decrease, leading to less volume and a substance footprint? Since devices already represent volumes that are bigger than PCs – and turn faster over – they dominate the volumes entering the stream.
Even with continually increasing quantities of electronics, their weight quantity entering the recycling stream might begin decreasing. If Computers have comprised roughly 60% of the total business input volume by weight and televisions have comprised a large part of the volume of Consumer Electronic Equipment – then up to 75% of the input quantity can be subject to the weight reduction of new technology – perhaps just up to a 50% reduction. The inherent value of those devices can be higher than PCs and CRTs.
Therefore, industry weight volumes might decrease, but earnings could continue to increase. Since mobile devices are expected into turning over faster than PCs, these changes in the Electronic Equipment recycling stream might happen within five years or less. The Electronic Equipment recycling business has traditionally focused on PCs and – consumer Electronic Equipment, but what about infrastructure equipment? – such as servers, data centers, cloud computing, telecom systems, cable network systems, satellite navigation systems, defense military systems. They aren’t usually visible or thought of when considering the electronics recycling industry, but can be an increasingly important and larger share of the amounts that it handles.
