Palm Beach, FL – June 18, 2024 – The scrap metal markets are projected to continue to grow in the coming years. Scrap metals collected from various sources are raw materials used in metal recycling. Scrap metals are separated and processed several times to yield recycled metals. A report from Precision Reports said that the global Metal Recycling market was valued at US$ 292860 million in 2023 and is anticipated to reach US$ 386740 million by 2030, witnessing a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period 2024-2030.  The report said: “Metal recycling is the process of collecting, processing, and reusing or remanufacturing metal materials from various sources, such as discarded products, industrial waste, and construction materials. Recycling metals helps conserve natural resources, reduce energy consumption, and minimize environmental impacts associated with mining and metal production.”  Precision Reports concluded: “Overall, metal recycling is a sustainable practice that plays a vital role in reducing waste, conserving resources, and mitigating environmental impacts. It is an essential component of the circular economy, where materials are continuously reused and recycled to minimize waste and promote sustainability.”  Active companies in the markets this week include Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc.

About 42% of the crude steel produced in North America is made from recycled materials, demonstrating the crucial role recycling plays in this region.
