Regional Snapshots

Based on region, Asia Pacific dominated the global recycled metal market with a share of over 50% in 2020, in terms of revenue and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific has the highest number of countries that are still developing and underdeveloped. The growing public and private investments in the development of sophisticated infrastructure in these developing nations is a crucial factor responsible for driving the growth of the recycled metal market. Further, Asia Pacific is among the top importers of recycled metal. The lack of advanced technology for recycling metal coupled with huge demand for the recycled metal has made this region a top consumer of recycled metal. The rising industrialization and rapid urbanization are expected to drive the growth of the recycled metal market in the region during the forecast period.

On the other hand, North America is estimated to be the most opportunistic market during the forecast period. The rising popularity of electric vehicles and demand for advanced electronic goods are the major factors of growth. Recycled metal is extensively used in the electronics and automotive industry and hence, the growth of these industries will propel the demand for the recycled metal in North America during the forecast period.

Report Highlights

  • Based on the metal type, the non-ferrous segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment. The extensive usage of aluminium in the automotive, construction, aerospace, and various consumer goods industries is the major factor accountable to drive the segment growth in the upcoming future.
  • Based on the end user, the construction segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment owing the rising investment in the development of infrastructure in the developing regions such as Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Market Dynamics

Driver - Increasing production of recycled metal owing to the increased demand from the manufacturing sector is boosting the growth of the global recycled metal market across the globe. Further, rising government initiatives to reduce the wastage of metal and develop sustainable solutions is fostering the market growth. According to the Bureau of International Recycling, the non-ferrous metals have witnessed an increase of around 6% in their recycling across the globe. Therefore, rising importance of non-ferrous metal recycling is expected to boost the market growth.

Restraints - Lack of proper government regulations and metal recycling technologies in the developing and underdeveloped economies is a key restraint that may hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

Opportunities - Rising government participation to boost the growth and development of recycled metal is expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, the implementation of Draft Steel Scrap Policy in India is expected to boost the development of the market.

Challenges - The lack of funds in the hands of the government in the underdeveloped nations restricts the growth of the infrastructure in the country, which results in low economic activities. Therefore, the lack of infrastructure is restricting the growth of various industries such as transport, construction, and various others that may restrict the growth of the recycled metal market.
