Global Recycled Metal Market to Reach US$ 476.23 Bn by 2024: Transparency Market Research

Transparency Market Research has published a new report titled “Recycled Metal (Ferrous, Non-ferrous, and Others) Market for Building & Construction, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Shipbuilding, Industrial Machinery, and Other End-users – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2016–2024.” According to the report, the global market for recycled metal was valued at US$ 312.90 Bn in 2015 and is anticipated to reach US$ 476.23 Bn by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2016 and 2024.

Asia Pacific and Europe held more than 70% share of the global recycled metal market in 2015. Demand for metals is high in various industries such as construction, infrastructure, transportation, aerospace, and machinery. Extraction of metals from ore and mining entails high consumption of energy coupled with release of greenhouse gases. However, environmental concerns associated with primary production of metals can be addressed with recycled metal. The energy required and greenhouse gas emission in metal production through recycling are significantly less than that of primary production. Thus, increasing awareness regarding environmental sustainability in developed and developing regions has been fueling the global recycled metal market since the last few years.
