International efforts to enhance global recycling capabilities and the increasing availability of obsolete scrap is likely to promote industry growth in the long term. In terms of volume, steel is the most recycled metal than other materials. This is owing to the abundant availability of steel scrap. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to cause a severe decline in the demand for 2020.

Furthermore, the growing consumption of metal in end-use industries is also likely to play a major role in driving market growth. For instance, steel is largely consumed in the automotive, construction, industrial manufacturing, and consumer goods industries. Aluminum recycling is also gaining significant momentum as recycling aluminum saves over 90% energy compared to its primary production.

Metal manufacturers are increasingly promoting recycling as an effective way to address the problem of resource scarcity and mitigate environmental impact associated with the production process. The industry is garnering significant pace as economically viable recovery of metals from the sorted recyclates is now feasible.

Asia Pacific is predicted to be the largest as well as the fastest-growing regional market from 2020 to 2027. Proper waste management and rapid urbanization are the major factors that are likely to trigger industry growth in APAC. The growing manufacturing sector in IndiaChinaVietnamThailandMyanmar, and Indonesia is leading to increased production activities, thereby boosting the demand for metal recycling.
