  • Metals can easily be recycled repeatedly without alteration in properties.

  • Thus they are used as raw materials in manufacturing processes. 40 percent of worldwide steel production is made using recycled steel as a raw material. Value of Recycled Metals from scrap in the US in 2015, in USD millions, by metals

  • The primary drivers for the Recycled Metal Market are the financial incentives and environmental safety associated with recycling.

  • This motivates the community collection of scrap metal for sale to recycling operations. Lower energy is required in the manufacturing processes if the recycled metal is used as raw material, also emitting lesser amounts of greenhouse gases and a reduction in production costs.

  • The growing volume of e-waste from discarded electronic products has also provided easy availability of scrap metal to be used as raw material after recycling. Collection and recapture of metal scrap for recycling have been a significant challenge despite the financial incentives associated with it.

  • Sorting different materials according to the base metal from a large scrap heap has also been challenging. The increasing complexities of product design, containing a mix of various alloying elements have also made the separation of metals difficult.

Recycled Metal Market Segmentation and Shares Analysis

  • Based on Type, the market is segmented into Ferrous, Non-Ferrous metals, and Others. Iron and Steel, which come under Ferrous metals, are the most recycled metals globally due to their usage in leading industrial and construction industries. These metals are also readily available for recycling, given their prevalence in all major consumer products.

  • Non-ferrous metals are further segmented into Aluminum, Copper, Lead, and Others. Of these, aluminum, due to its excellent scrap value and lower energy needs, is the most recycled non-ferrous metal. The aluminum can, as a result, is the most recycled consumer product worldwide. Metal recycling of Silver, Gold, and Platinum is also done, albeit in lower quantities as the recycling processes involved are expensive.

Recycled Metal Market Geographical and Competitive Share

  • North America leads the market share by region as it is well established as the largest consumer market for recycled goods. Around 42 percent of crude steel in the United States is made using recycled materials. The increase in productivity of the Automotive and Construction sectors in the region has in turn increased demand for recycled metals.

  • Asia Pacific region is also witnessing steady growth in the Recycled Metal Market as countries with developing economies, like China, India, Japan, and Australia are driving the demand for recycled metals. The generation of e-waste in the region is also high, making the availability of scrap for recycling operations easy.
