As per Vision Research Reports, the global metal recycling market was valued at US$ 957.8 billion in 2019 and is poised to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% over forecast period 2020 to 2027.
The increasing demand for metals coupled with rising focus on conservation of natural resources and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is the crucial factor driving the market growth. Metal recycling allows manufacturers to procure raw materials for the production of finished goods without degrading their properties. Furthermore, it is cheaper than the primary production of metal. In addition, the environmental imperative also plays a significant role in driving industry growth. China emerged as the largest player in the global industry in 2019. According to World Steel, China is the largest producer of steel and it produced 996.3 million tons in 2019 and accounted for roughly 53% of the global crude steel production. China sources roughly 20% of the raw material required for steel making from scrap recycling.
Steel led the market and accounted for more than 78.0% share of the global volume in 2019. The large-scale utilization of steel in the construction, automotive, and consumer goods industries is the major factor driving the segment growth.
Aluminum is yet another product that has tremendous potential for recycling. According to the Aluminum Association, aluminum is one of the most recyclable materials in the industry today. According to the statistics provided by the association, nearly 75% of all the aluminum produced in the U.S. is still in use today.
The construction sector led the market and accounted for more than 45.0% share of the global volume in 2019. There is a considerable demand for steel and aluminum from the global construction industry. Rising urbanization owing to increasing disposable income levels in the emerging economies is likely to contribute to the growth of the construction industry, thereby driving the demand for construction metal products. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the recycling industry.
The automotive industry also uses a considerable amount of metal. For instance, engine components and various other auto components, such as hoods, mufflers, basic vehicle frames for doors, and fuel tanks, are made of steel.
Asia Pacific led the market and accounted for more than a 65.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. This dominance can be attributed to the significant metal production in the region.
Metal production in Europe is considerably smaller when than Asia Pacific. However, the usage of recycled scrap for secondary metal production in Europe is relatively higher. The rising emphasis on the circular economy in Europe coupled with stricter government regulations on energy usage plays a major role in promoting market growth in Europe.
In North America, roughly 42% of crude steel is produced using recycled materials. This illustrates the massive significance of recycling in the region. The country is a major producer of secondary aluminum. Further, the U.S. produces steel mainly using the EAF process which consumes a significant quantity of scraped material.
Some of the prominent players in the metal recycling market are:
European Metal recycling
