Arrow and Cloudblue lead recycled mobiles market growing at CAGR of 17%

By Editor


The global market for green and recycled mobile phones is expected to post a CAGR of 17 percent by 2019.

The market for green and recycled phones is dominated by a few key players like Arrow and Cloudblue.

Introduction of initiatives such as the e-cycle and e-stewards certification to reduce the illegal and improper disposal of e-wastes is expected to foster growth in this market during the forecast period.

Also, augmented production of mobile phones is the key driver for the growth of this market. With the rise in mobile phone manufacturing, the amount of e waste generated also increases. The improper disposal of such waste products not only raises environmental concerns but also leads to resource depletion.

Therefore, in order to overcome supply shortage during the manufacturing process, many enterprises are increasing focusing on the recycling of waste materials such as metal, batteries, and plastic.

The research estimates the plastic segment to account for more than 42 percent of the total market share by 2019. High market share of this segment can be attributed to factors like its ability to make the phone resistant to damage and its capacity to bring down the manufacturing cost.

Geographically, the Americas will lead the global market for green and recycled mobile phones during the forecast period. Rising consumer awareness pertaining to the importance of handling e-waste is a critical factor that drives growth in this region and results in its high market share of almost 53 percent by 2019.
