Market Share by Certified Product Categories

The mobile phone segment is expected to gain momentum in the refurbished retail market across the region on account of the increasing usage of mobile phones. The rising shift of consumers toward smart devices is likely to fuel the segment growth in the market. With the rising costs of smartphones, and relatively fewer changes between models, there is greater demand for refurbished mobile phones that offer similar features. 

 

Another sizable segment in the North America refurbished retail market is for outdoor power equipment and tools, that tend to be expensive when purchased new and have a long lifespan. With more people changing homes, and switching between apartments and houses with lawns, the need for outdoor power equipment varies. Such equipment is not used on a daily basis nor are advanced features required, encouraging buyers to opt for refurbished models. 

 

Market Share by Country

Geographically, the United States is expected to augment the North America refurbished retail market share on account of the growing population along with the rising disposable income. The growing e-commerce sector as well as online platforms for the sale and purchase of refurbished retail with substantial production capabilities is likely to propel the market growth of refurbished products. 

 

The strong presence of key market players like Amazon and Walmart in the United States, with multiple branches and fulfilment centres throughout the country, is further expected to push forward the market growth of refurbished retail. The increasing awareness regarding refurbished products among consumers in the United States, as these products are sustainable, reliable, and affordable, is expected to fuel the overall North America refurbished retail market.
