European Market Assessment for End-of-Life LCD Processing

Share via:

A European specialist waste contractor set out to explore the evolving landscape of End-of-Life (EOL) LCD screens processing within Western Europe. Their initiative aimed to dissect the recycling market, navigating through the complex legislative and regulatory environment while forecasting the sector’s development.

Project Scope and Aims

The project’s core objectives were comprehensive. The contractor sought to provide an in-depth overview of the Western European LCD recycling market. This involved an intricate review of the legislative and regulatory stance within the EU, particularly focusing on Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK, and how it impacts the classification and handling of EOL LCDs as hazardous or non-hazardous waste. Additionally, the research was to consider other market influences and constraints, estimate the current size of the EOL LCD sector, and predict its growth over the next decade. The contractor also aimed to evaluate the practical conditions of waste LCD management and treatment across these three markets.

Research Methodology

The contractor approached these goals through a methodical research process. Desk research was initiated to pinpoint prevailing disposal practices and technologies. This was followed by conducting telephone interviews with key personnel at the governmental and regulatory levels, as well as with members of relevant trade associations and those active in the processing and disposal sectors. The contractor’s in-house experience, represented by Leading Edge, was leveraged to forecast the inflow of EOL LCDs into the market. The culmination of this research was a series of standardised reports, each detailing the findings for the individual geographic markets assessed.

Outcomes and Client Benefits

The results of the study were comprehensive. The contractor delivered a rich set of data, including up-to-date information on key market indicators and forecasts for LCD volumes. These insights are tailored to assist the client in refining their broader business plan, equipping them with the knowledge to make strategic decisions that align with anticipated market developments.
