Significant Growth in IT Industry Driving the Market
The frequency of introduction of new products and categorical innovations in the IT industry indicates the industry’s constantly evolving landscape. The IT industry has touched a point where Big Data analytics, cognitive computing, cloud computing, and the fastest-growing Internet of Things (IoT) are changing businesses worldwide. Increasing usage of information and communication technology (ICT) devices, coupled with decreasing lifecycle of IT products, generates the need for companies to dispose electronic waste safely.
For example, according to the global e-waste monitor 2017 report by The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), e-waste generation is expected to rise significantly from 44.7 metric tons in 2014 and reach 52.2 metric tons in 2021. Thus, significant rise in e-waste generation is affecting the environment. In order to dispose of this waste and minimize its side effects, companies are recycling, recovering, and safely disposing their electronic waste. This is expected to drive the global IT asset disposition market significantly.
