The global metal recycling market size is expected to gain momentum owing to the increasing awareness regarding the depletion of metal reserves during the forecast period. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™ in an upcoming report, titled, “Metal Recycling Market, 2022-2029.” The market for metal recycling is being driven by a high rate of depreciation, an improvement in energy efficiency with lower emissions of greenhouse gases, accelerated industrial development in emerging countries, and more consumer awareness. Furthermore, the growing shortage of rare earth metals presents an opportunity for the worldwide market. However, the uncontrolled flow of waste metals and a lack of scrap collecting zones are expected to limit market expansion. Nucor Corporation, for example, recycles scrap steel into hot-rolled steel, bars, and rods that are then utilized in the automobile, building, industrial, and shipping industries.

COVID-19 Impact-

Detrimental Impact of Covid-19 on Construction Industry

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 disrupted the supply chain, resulting in a substantial drop in metal output. Furthermore, there was a significant decrease in demand due to the downturn of major end-use sectors like construction and automotive. This is anticipated to have an impact on the recycling sector in 2020. However, a strong comeback in industrial operations is predicted in the coming years.
