Global Metal Recycling Market Report to 2030

Dublin, May 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Metal Recycling Market by Metal Type, Scrap Type and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2030” report has been added to from offer.

The global metal recycling market size was USD 217.0 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 368.7 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Metal recycling refers to the reprocessing of scrap metal into new metal products to reduce greenhouse gas emission levels, conserve natural resources and manage energy consumption. Governments in developed regions such as Canada, USA and UK and others have taken steps to promote the metal recycling industry with good waste collection system, separation processes and of sorting. For example, the Government of Canada works with provinces, territories and industries to promote the reuse and recycling of metal products. This should improve not only the Canadian recycling industry, but also its metal industry.

An increase in urbanization and industrialization along with increased consumption of raw materials along with depletion of natural resources and reuse of these resources has created immense scope, which is driving the growth of the global recycling market metals. Market players such as Nucor Corporation, Aurubis AG and others are engaged in product acquisition and launch as a key development strategy to enhance the metal recycling product portfolio.

However, the unorganized flow of scrap metal and the availability of less scrap collection areas are expected to hamper the market growth. Conversely, increase in building construction owing to increase in construction waste disposal in landfills is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the global metal recycling market.

The metal recycling market is segmented on the basis of metal type, scrap type, end user and region. By scrap type, the market is split into old scrap and new scrap. The old scrap metal segment generated the highest revenue in 2020. By metal type, the market is fragmented into ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Ferrous segment dominated the market in 2020. By end user, the market is categorized into building & construction, packaging, automotive, shipbuilding, electronic & electrical equipment and others. The automotive segment generated the highest revenue during the forecast period. However, electronics contain heavy and valuable metals, such as lead, copper, gold and aluminum, and recycling them ensures the conservation of natural resources. Hence, the electronics and electrical equipment industry is the fastest growing sector during the forecast period.

Regionally, the market analyzed in North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia and Rest of Asia-Pacific) and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East and Africa). The Asia-Pacific region generated the highest revenue in 2020.
