The metal recycling market size is estimated to grow from USD 277.12 Billion in 2015 to reach USD 406.16 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.95%. The segments considered for this report are based on the metal type, scrap type, end-use sector of recycled metal, and region. The segmentation based on metal type consists of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap for recycling. Scrap type involves old scrap and new scrap taken up for recycling. The end-use sectors for recycled metal are building & construction, automotive, packaging, equipment manufacturing, shipbuilding, and consumer appliances. The final segment, that is, region, consists of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is projected from 2015 to 2020. Factors such as increasing urban population, rapid industrialization, growing concerns about the depletion of natural resources, and laws & regulations, have propelled the growth of the global metal recycling industry.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the metal recycling market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research. The vendor offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global metal recycling market from the revenue of the key players in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. These data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary is depicted in the figure below:

MarketsandMarkets projects that the metal recycling market size will grow from USD 277.12 Billion in 2015 to reach USD 406.16 Billion by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 7.95%. The increasing income and spending capacity of people in developing economies and increasing demand in various end-use sectors such as building & construction, metal fabrication, electronics, medical & health care equipment, automotive, and packaging are the major factors driving the growth of the metal recycling market. Additionally, with rapid urbanization, growth in infrastructural activities, and increasing industrialization, there is an increasing need for metal products. The strict laws pertaining to waste management & recycling, increasing awareness of the efficient use of natural resources, and demand for recycled metal have led the public sector bodies such as municipalities and private sector which involves companies offering environmental services such as collection and recycling of metal waste to take active part in the recovery of metal from scrap.

Metals are used to manufacture a variety of products such as home appliances, automotive parts and components, beverage containers, packaging, jewelry, and furniture. The extensive use of metals demands proper management of its life cycle. The largest amount of recycled metal in 2014 is projected to be used in the building & construction sector. With the implementation of regulations such as Extender Producers Responsibility, recycling of end-of-life vehicles, and WEEE guidelines, the use of recycled metal in the automotive and equipment manufacturing industry is also projected to occupy a large share.

The segments considered for this report are based on the metal type, scrap type, end-use sector of recycled metal, and region. The segmentation based on metal type consist of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap for recycling. Recycling ferrous metals is a huge market which is projected to grow at a high growth rate between 2015 and 2020. Iron and steel scrap 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 steel making industry.
