Global Metal Recycling Market – Segmentation Analysis

The Global Metal Recycling market has been segmented by metal type, end-user application, mode of recycling, scrap type, and geography. The market for recycling of ferrous metals is gaining momentum and is expected to grow at a faster rate. Iron scrap and steel scrap are the primary ferrous metals which are recycled. According to the world steel association, 1689 million tons of crude steel was produced in 2017, and the annual growth rate from 2015 to 2017 was 2.1%. Ninety-nine million tons of scrap steel was exported, and various countries of the world imported 98.4 million tons of scrap steel in 2017. The Bureau of internal recycling states that 40% of the world's steel is produced from scrap. In the case of non-ferrous metals, the world refined copper production from scrap was 3.481 million tons in 2017 and this figure grew by 9.4% when compared to 2016. Aluminum is one of the primary non-ferrous metals which is most widely recycled after steel and paper.

Recycled metals find their primary use in building and construction, Automotive, electronics and electrical equipment, Shipbuilding, packaging industries, Commercial household products, Aerospace, and Industrial machinery applications. Building and construction industry is the dominant segment in this market because of the increase in disposal of metal scrap into the landfills. A study by the scientists at the Department of Materials Science, Carnegie Mellon University has concluded that most of the scrap metal is emerging from the construction and building industry. In 2016, the total metal scrap from the building and construction industry was 19 million tons in the United States which was followed by consumer goods which accounted for 6 million tons of metal scrap production and industrial products which produced 11 million tons of metal scrap.
