The growing e-commerce sales of electronics are also expected to boost the growth of the e-waste recycling market in the coming years. The governments of various countries across the globe are increasingly introducing various policies for e-waste management across the value chain of the electronic devices industry. In addition, several non-profit organizations and government agencies are also taking initiatives to increase awareness regarding the proper disposal of e-waste among consumers. This factor will have a positive impact on the e-waste management market. The government policies and standards for e-waste management are also expected to cushion the e-waste management market's expansion. South America is expected to grow considerably, owing to the adoption of latest technologies. It is expected to increase the demand for electronics, further driving the e-waste generation rate. Furthermore, the organizations that have been specialised by third-party auditors will present additional potential prospects for the expansion of the e-waste management industry in the future years. On the other hand, the Middle East & Africa is expected to create opportunities for e-waste recycling, owing to its ability to feed the domestic industries' income through precious metal recovery. According to the research report, “South America, Middle East & Africa E-Waste Management Market Research Report, 2028” published by Actual Market Research, the market is projected to grow with 11.15% CAGR for 2023-2028. Electronic waste (e-waste) is generated in South America in much the same way as it is generated in other regions of the world. This includes the increasing use of electronic devices, such as computers, televisions, smartphones, and other consumer electronics, as well as the replacement of equipment by companies and government organizations. The generation of e-waste in South America is a growing concern due to the limited capacity of many countries in the region to properly manage and dispose of electronic waste. This can lead to the improper disposal of electronic devices, which can have negative impacts on human health and the environment. To address this issue, some governments and organizations in South America have implemented regulations and programs aimed at promoting the responsible disposal of e-waste and encouraging the recycling of materials from discarded electronic devices. However, the extent and effectiveness of these programs can vary widely across the region, and the challenge of managing e-waste remains a significant issue in many countries in South America. Furthermore, the generation of e-waste in the Middle East and Africa is a growing concern, particularly in countries with rapidly developing economies and increasing urbanization. The lack of proper e-waste management systems in many countries in the region can result in the inappropriate disposal of e-waste, leading to potential harm to human health and the environment. To address the growing problem of e-waste, some countries in the Middle East and Africa have implemented regulations and programs aimed at promoting the responsible disposal of e-waste and encouraging the recycling of materials from discarded electronic devices. However, the extent and effectiveness of these programs can vary widely across the region, and the challenge of managing e-waste remains a significant issue in many countries in the Middle East and Africa. The rising awareness towards the adverse impact of electronic waste on the environment and health is driving the governments towards e-waste management policies globally. Initiatives led by governments include financial assistance towards recycling facilities, incentives, and mandatory waste collection regulations towards electronic manufacturers. Policies such as Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) services commissioned towards encouraging e-waste collection and recycling are promoting the growth of the e-waste management market. Furthermore, several non-government organizations are conducting awareness campaigns focused on consumer education on e-waste disposal and recycling methods. Also, the economic benefits coupled with recycling and reuse of discarded devices is motivating the waste management activities. Electronic devices contain glass, plastic, and several useful metals that can be reused, thereby limiting the need for imports. This is also providing a considerable financial advantage to OEMs in the electronics industry. Metals such as copper, mercury, silver, gold, lead and aluminum are all found in varying concentrations in most of the electronic components. Proper collection and recycling of these metals will serve the purpose of new devices. Based on the material segment, metal is expected to dominate the market by 2028. Brazil’s electronic products market is presently among the largest in the world, and has been showing continual growth since the past few years. It produces electronic waste on a large scale, with higher portion of this waste being generated each year. Brazil is among the few countries in the South American region that have imposed regulations for electronic waste treatment. The National Policy on Waste Management (PNRS) puts forth that every organization and institution in the country is responsible for separating and properly disposing of the waste it produces. It is not just the responsibility of these entities, but also that of cities and consumers. The municipalities of the seven Emirates, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi, are also lending their support to private organizations promoting and managing the proper recycling of e-waste. For instance, the largest recycling plant in the world has been built in Dubai Industrial City, in collaboration with a global-level recycling company Enviroserve. This plant has a capacity of processing close to 39,000 tons of e-waste annually. With e-waste on the rise globally, the company has built a plant in Dubai capable of processing 14 times more e-waste than it does today. It processes waste from 10 countries across the Middle East and Africa and can recycle up to 98% of the material from an electronic device into raw materials, which are then sold to manufacturers in the automotive, IT and construction industries. The South America, Middle East & Africa waste management market pose huge demand for the waste management providers as it is developing and growing rapidly. Many countries in the region are preferring to become green cities, recycling and environmental friendly in their approach. Governments as well as the private sector providers are positively responding to the rising problems caused by waste in the region. Also, they are raising awareness for the benefits they can receive from good and efficient waste management policies and practices. Few of the many reasons why the nations are increasingly focusing on the waste management recently are: • Lack of space - Cities is growing and people are moving to suburbs and to the rural areas. As they move they are getting closer to areas in which trash has been deposited, such as open landfills. • Open Landfill - The open space in which waste is just thrown are now becoming obsolete. Open landfills are known to pollute the environment. Cities are becoming conscious that places like these just call for insects, rats, odours and diseases such as plagues. The bad waste management can be translated into increasing healthcare costs. Overall, this means that the living in the same neighbourhood with the open landfill can be very challenging. African countries are among the prime destinations of electronic waste (e-waste) also called Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), and have been challenged with the management of its environmental and health impacts. Electronic waste (e-waste) is generated in the Middle East and Africa as a result of the increasing use of electronic devices, such as computers, televisions, smartphones, and other consumer electronics. As these devices become obsolete or are replaced by newer models, they are often discarded and become part of the e-waste stream. As on ‘world environment day’ the popular cab company Uber announced a 3 day e-waste collection campaign in Dubai from 2nd July to 4th July. This included free doorstep pick up of old end of life laptops, desktop monitors, mobile phones and other dead electronic devices. The facility was available to the people through the uber app which had the complimentary e-waste pick up option. Uber UAE collaborated with Dubai Internet City, Dubai Science Park and Averda(e-waste management company) to tackle the e-waste collection and dumping productively. The drive was carried out successfully and the e-waste was disposed of in Averda for further process. More so, the Emirates is developing the smartest e-waste bin which is about to launch by 2020. This e-bin will effectively meet the e-waste recycling demand in UAE. The bin will be a smart movable waste dumping system which will effectively communicate and convey information to the e-waste collection company as well as the user. For instance, the e-bin will inform the user about the recycling compatibility of the e-waste items and it will also inform the company for collection when it’s full. When the e-bin is short of enough dumping space, it will instantly suggest the location of the nearest e-bin in that particular area. Electronic waste (e-waste) disposal regulations in South America vary by country. Here are a few examples of e-waste regulations in the region: • Brazil: Brazil has implemented regulations for e-waste disposal through the "National Policy for the Proper Management of Electronic Waste" and the "Law on the Proper Management of Electronic Waste."
