    Abstract In the hope of supporting the Minamata Convention Parties in implementing its provisions in a more coordinated matter, the “Waste Mercury Perspective” report provides a forecast of the volume of waste mercury in electric and electronic products, and in a set of other non-electronic product categories, in the next 15-20 years. As a general trend, the volume of mercury-added product waste increased by an average of 7% per year in 2010-2018, reaching a 2018-2025 plateau of around 6.4 Mt. After 2025, which corresponds to the average date in which countries will not be producing, importing or exporting mercury-added products anymore – according the the Minamata Convention – the mercury-added product waste is expected to decrease rapidly.
