Over the past few years, technological innovations have revolutionized the electronics industry. Electronic products serve a wide range of areas such as environmental protection, security, communications, food supply, health, education and medicine. The increasing demand for electronic products has led to rise in electronic waste. However, only a small percentage of the global electronic waste is being recycled, while a large portion is often dumped into landfills. Inadequate public education and lack of awareness has further increased the recycling problem. More visibility in terms of collection methods, adequate support from the government and increased awareness among the consumers is expected to boost the electronics recycling market.
