The building & construction segment, by end-use sector, accounted for a larger market size for metal recycling in 2019, in terms of both value and volume. Manufacturing new metals is a complicated and conventional method for construction companies. Hence, companies prefer to convert old scrap metals into reusable new metals to expand their exponential turnover and meet the demand of the rapidly increasing global population. Thus the dominant market position of the building & construction sector is attributed to the exponential growth of construction activities happening globally.

The Asia Pacific region is projected to lead the metal recycling market, in terms of both value and volume, from 2020 to 2025. The development in the construction industry in emerging countries such as India and China is expected to boost the demand for recycled metal in the market. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is the hub of foreign investment and booming industrial sectors, largely due to the low-cost labor and cheap availability of land. This, in turn, increases the growth of construction activities, which boosts the demand for metal recycling in the region.
