The need for electronic scrap recycling is rising in response to the progressively shorter lifespan of electronic products and stringent government regulations governing the collection and processing of electronic waste (e-waste). The global electronic scrap recycling market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.2% by volume during the forecast period from 2015 to 2022.
Disposal or landfilling of e-waste raises serious health and environmental issues. On the contrary, its recycling proves to be a feasible solution for the elimination of its harmful effects. E-waste consists of unwanted or broken electronic or electrical devices, and peripherals such as smartphones, televisions, laptops, refrigerators, computers, printers and other electronic products.
The ever-rising problem of e-waste is being solved with the use of electronic recycling. Most electronic products are made up of metals, which are recyclable. The dismantling and recycling of end-of-life electronic products promotes the conservation of undamaged natural resources.

The global electronic scrap recycling market is consolidated, with a very small number of players dominating the global market. The most important strategy adopted by key players in the global electronic scrap recycling market is the geographical expansion of their businesses in order to gain a competitive edge in the market. For instance, in May 2010, LS-Nikko Copper, Inc. started its first U.S. liaison office at Electronic Recyclers International heaquarters, in Fresno, California.
Another important strategy adopted by electronic recycling companies is innovation in the recycling process. Umicore N.V. is an example of an innovator in this market. In September 2014, Umicore signed a new standard for the processing of copper bearings or precious metal waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) fractions. The new standard is expected to contribute to enhancing the overall performance of the recycling chain, thus opposing the illegal use or practices of harmful and inefficient technologies for recycling.
