The trend of Metal Recycling Industry is consolidating across the globe and Market Research Future (MRFR), has recently published a comprehensive report on the global metal recycling market, covering key trends and patterns that are likely to impact the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2022-2030. As per MRFR's analysis, the metal recycling market is expected to reach a valuation of USD 54.1 billion in 2019 to around USD 88.5 billion at a CAGR of 8.04% by the end of 2022 and 2030.

Metal recycling helps to significantly reduce greenhouse emissions and conserve natural resources. It involves reprocessing of used metals to convert them into usable metals. Doing so not only reduces energy consumption but also provides economic advantages as recycling involves lesser cost than procuring metals from virgin ores. The trend of metal recycling is gaining momentum due to augmenting need for energy conservation and mounting awareness regarding the advantages associated with it. Metal recycling typically involves passing used metals through the stages of sorting, melting, processing, purification, and solidification. Stainless steel, copper, zinc, l;ead, iron, and copper are among the most recycled metals.
