The booming food and beverage sector owing to consumer dependence on convenience and ready-made foods makes a significant demand for metals and empowers the growth of this market.

The development of facilities for recycling and reusing of metals globally complementary to the gaining momentum of the recycling and reusing processes is adding impetus to the growth of the metal recycling market.

Market Restraints

The lack of systematic movement and dumping of waste and the scarcity of dumping zones for scrap collection is hindering the growth prospects of this market.

The volatile price of steel is negatively affecting the metal recycling market.

The production and recycling costs of metal is immoderate. Costly raw materials, extravagant expenditure on the human resources and also pricey transportation charges is threatening the growth of the metal recycling market.


Technological advancement and its application in the establishment of efficient metal recycling technologies is likely to be good set of circumstances for this market.

Urbanization and industrialization at lighting pace and the flourishing sectors like food and beverages, transportation and many more demand uninterrupted flow of metals which is a lucrative opportunity for this market.


Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the metal recycling market growth.
