Market Insights

Metal recycling reduces environmental impact and offers a method by which natural resources can be conserved, thus driving the demand for metal recycling. Moreover, metal recycling expends comparatively less energy than metals derived from ores. The growing need for metal due to a rising population and the resulting increased demand for metal from end-use industries is a significant factor propelling market growth. Another vital factor compelling market growth is the increasing consumption and demand for canned beverages. This has directly influenced demand from the metal recycling industry as it is a cheaper and more efficient method of procuring required metals such as aluminum. Americans recycle close to 120,000 aluminum cans on a minute by minute basis making metal recycling necessary due to mass consumption patterns.

Industrialization and the unfortunate lack of proper metal sorting across the globe have made the metal selection process difficult and time-consuming. Moreover, rapidly emerging markets, such as India do not have strict rules regarding recycling of metal which is likely to lead to hinderance for global growth of the metal recycling market. However, this is expected to change as these countries develop and industrialization, and a requirement for cost-effective metal is expected to offer market expansion opportunities.
