“In terms of value and volume, the ferrous segment is projected to lead the metal recycling market from 2020 to 2025.”
Based on type, the ferrous segment is projected to be a faster-growing market during the forecast period. Iron and steel scraps are some of the most widely recycled ferrous metals in the world. This scrap comes from end-of-life products and scrap generated through manufacturing processes. The use of scrap in steel production has formed an integral part of the steelmaking industry. According to the Bureau of International Recycling, 40% of steel production is made from scraps.

“In terms of value and volume, the building & construction segment of the metal recycling market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
The building & construction segment is the fastest-growing segment in the metal recycling market. The need to reduce the environmental impact of mining metals has encouraged the use of recycled metals in the building & construction sector. Most recycled metals used in this sector are obtained from demolition waste, which is one of the largest sources of metal waste, especially in the US.

“In terms of both value as well as volume, the Asia Pacific region is expected to account for the largest share in the global metal recycling market during the forecast period.”
Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing market for metal recycling due to its increasing economic growth. It accounted for over a third of the world’s GDP, according to a paper published by World Economics in February 2017.

According to the Population Reference Bureau, the fastest-growing consumer markets of China, India, and other Asia Pacific countries had a combined population exceeding four billion people (as of 2018). This is projected to be an essential driver for global consumption of consumer durables and the building & construction sector over the next two decades; this, in turn, is expected to lead to the growth of the metal recycling market. Other drivers that will have a positive impact on this market are increasing household incomes and the growing middle-class population.
