The scrap metal recycling market is driven by the increase in the price of raw materials. In addition, rising concerns about the impact of mining on the environment are anticipated to boost the growth of the scrap metal recycling market.

The price of ferrous and non-ferrous raw materials has steadily increased over recent years. This is mainly due to China’s revised environmental regulations regarding the import of metals. Besides, countries such as the US and Canada have imposed several import/export restrictions and tariffs on metals such as steel and aluminum. These factors have created a huge supply-demand gap, which has significantly increased the price of raw materials. This is also leading to an increase in the preference for scrap metal recycling among end-users, which is driving the growth of the market.
