Ferrous Scrap Recycling Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2020-2027

The global Ferrous Scrap Recycling market size is expected to be worth around US$ 111.8 million by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Ferrous Scrap Recycling market size was valued at US$ 97.5 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 1.6% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

Increasing secondary metal production is anticipated to augment market growth.

Crude steel is produced through basic oxygen converter and electric arc furnace (EAF), where the former follows the conventional method of production that includes raw materials, such as iron ore, metallurgical coal, limestone, and very less amount of scrap. However, in the EAF, scrap is the key raw material along with less energy consumption. According to the World Steel Association, crude steel production through the EAF process increased by 10.2% from 2017 to 2018. Growing steel production through the EAF process is a key driving factor for the market.

Ferrous scrap recycling is a market with lots of growth potential owing to increasing concerns over sustainability and depleting non-renewable resources. As a result, recycling is the most viable and efficient option to continue the production of metals owing to rapidly accelerating demand and at the same time causing minimal impact on the environment.

The recycling process involves certain steps, which are, scrap metal collection at yards, sorting, passing through radiation detector, shearing, shredding, separation of ferrous materials, media separation, and baling. After passing through all processing steps, the obtained blocks of ferrous scrap are transported to steel mills for further processing and are used in production.

Ferrous scrap is collected through various sources, where the key markets include construction, automotive, consumer goods, and industrial goods. The construction industry is the major contributor towards scrap generation as ferrous products recovered from the sector can be used directly if the quality is not impacted or else are sent for recycling.

Report Highlights

Ferrous scrap collection has been segmented based on four sectors: construction, automotive, consumer goods, and industrial goods. Construction led the market and accounted for more than 46.01% share of the global revenue in 2019. Construction has been the key end-user of steel, and hence the industry makes the maximum contribution to metal scrap collection. Steel is widely used in the construction industry, considering its benefits such as durability, versatility, strength, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability.

Europe accounted for the largest volume share of 42.4% in 2019. The European steel industry has been an efficient operator of steel recycling systems for more than 150 years. In Europe, steel in cars is recycled at a rate of more than 95% and in packaging at over 74%. The phenomenal property of this alloy of being recycled over and over makes steel scrap a major raw material in crude steel production. In terms of export, European Union-28 (EU-28) is the largest ferrous scrap exporter in the world. According to the 10th edition of World Steel Recycling released by the Bureau of International Recycling, EU-28 exported 21.44 million tons of steel scrap in 2018.

India is in the process of making policies in favor of the recycling industry of the country, which will encourage in developing collection and dismantling centers, shredders, and aggregators. The policy shall aim towards reducing scrap imports and by 2030, the country may come out self-sufficient. In December 2018, India’s 1st automobile shredder was established by Mahindra Group and it aims to begin shredding operations from vehicles and consumer durables at five more locations. Automotive players such as Tata Motors and Hyundai have also shown interest in establishing such shredding units.
