Recycled Metal Market Projected to Grow at CAGR of 4.8%, Scrutinized in New Research

Albany, USA, 2017-Dec-29 — /EPR Network/ —The global recycled metal market is gaining traction due to rapid urbanization and industrialization. Metal scrap generated from discarded machineries, construction materials, mechanical equipment, automotive, and electrical and electronic components can be reused to produce metals through an energy-efficient method.  Aluminum, zinc, lead, tin, gold, nickel, copper, silver, platinum, iron and steel, and palladium are the metals that can be recycled.

The growing awareness among industries such as automotive, building and construction, and machinery manufacturing regarding the benefits of recycled metals is likely to boost market growth. Industries are turning to eco-friendly raw materials in order to curb greenhouse gas emission and reduce their carbon footprint. However, collection and sorting of domestic materials to be recycled can be expensive, time consuming, and require energy, which are bound to work against the market growth.
