E-Waste Recycling and Reuse Services Worldwide20 Dec 2011 • by Natalie Aster
Around the world, electronic and electrical (E&E) product sales are expected to increase.
Rapid technological advancements, such as in information and communications technology and office equipment, as well as a switch from analogue (non-digital technology, using continuous values to represent information, such as audio tapes and record players), to digital technologies and to flat screen televisions and computer monitors has helped to increase sales of electronic products. The availability of less expensive electronics in more regions is also spurring an increase in sales of E&E items.
According to the report “E-Waste Recycling and Reuse Services Worldwide” by SBI In developing regions, where an increasing number of households are able to afford electronic items, E&E sales are skyrocketing, with Africa, Latin America, China and India projected to see the most significant increase in E&E sales. Although sales of E&E items are escalating quickly, it will take some time for the e-waste R&R industry in many of these regions to be in a position to take advantage of these resource opportunities, due mostly to lack of infrastructure.
