European Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment Recycling Market

LONDON, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

European Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment Recycling Market

New WEEE Legislation Drives Market Towards $2 Billion by 2020

This research service analyzes the European Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment (WEEE) Recycling market. It describes the present status of recycling technologies and waste volume management. The WEEE covered in this research includes municipal solid waste (European Waste Catalog code 20) and industrial waste (EWC code 16). Hazardous wastes are excluded from this study. This study does not cover final recycling processes, such as metal or glass smelting, plastic remolding, and waste to energy processes. For this study, WEEE is segmented into Large Household Appliance, Small Household Appliance, IT and Communications, Consumer Equipment, and Others. The market is analysed for the period 2009–2020, with 2012 as the base year.

Executive Summary

•At present, electric and electronic equipment account for the fastest growing volume of waste generated. Consequently, significant attention needs to be directed towards managing this waste, to limit hazardous elements and to decrease illegal dumping and export to cheaper non-OCDE* countries.
•The European Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling market is forecast to post a CAGR of X percent during 2012 to 2020. WEEE 2 Directives are likely to drive this market through legislative targets, selective collection of waste, and higher recycling rates.
•Europe is a leading region with technically advanced recycling companies. The collection rate of WEEE materials from citizens is high, in the region, as a result of tight cooperation between private companies and the public sector.
•During 2013–2020 Germany is expected to be the most engaging market for WEEE recycling as a result of effective collection schemes and innovative technologies in recycling. The markets in CEE, Iberia, and France are expected to grow between 2013 and 2020 because of significant waste volume collection and technological developments.
•Recycling of precious materials from WEEE is expected to grow, as European countries shift from excessive and environmentally harmful mining to material recovery from waste sources (surface mining or urban mining**).

CEO's Perspective

1. The Large Household Appliances segment is expected to continue to dominate the volume of WEEE collection and recycling.
2. Market development is driven by the WEEE 2 Directive (2012/19/EC), where electric and electronic equipment producers and distributors are legally responsible for the life cycle of the manufactured product.
3. The Clearing House System, which is the most common collection scheme in Europe, is likely to boost the competition in the market.
4. As precious metal content in electronic goods is projected to decrease in future, companies are expected to focus on collection and separation of WEEE at source.
5. The cost of recycling WEEE per ton is expected to decrease in Western Europe and CEE, whereas it is likely to increase in Poland.

Market Overview—Research Scope

•This research evaluates the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment recycling market in Europe. At present, the market is dominated by private sector owners, who cooperate with the public sector in the collection process. This setup is not expected to change in the future.
•The WEEE recycling sector is based not only on Municipal Solid Waste (European Waste Catalog code 20), but also on industrial EWC code 16. However, hazardous waste input material is excluded.
•The study covers collection and recycling (processing and recovery) of WEEE listed in the second Directive 2012/19/ EC in Annex I, where waste is differentiated into Xcategories. The list of WEEE covered is listed on slideX of this report.
•The scope of the study does not cover final recycling processes, such as metal or glass smelting, plastic remolding, and waste to energy processes.
