According to the report, the market growth will be driven by an increasing demand for metals in various industries, including automotive, construction and electronics. The report looks at metal recycling from a global perspective, noting that an increasing concern for the efficient use of natural resources is finally leading many international government bodies to become more active in regulating ore extraction and refining, and the the recycling of metals.

The report says the automotive sector is still dominating the metal recycling market as it requires large volumes for manufacturing car bodies and other components. In turn, as every recycler knows, the manufacturing of automobiles sooner or later leads to the generation of a lot of metal scrap.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the metal recycling market in terms of having the highest combined annual growth rate, due to rapid urbanization in countries such as India and China, along with the growth in the disposable income of the people in those countries.
