The global ferrous scrap recycling market size is anticipated to reach USD 111.9 million by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 1.7% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing secondary metal production is anticipated to augment market growth.
Crude steel is produced through basic oxygen converter and electric arc furnace (EAF), where the former follows the conventional method of production that includes raw materials, such as iron ore, metallurgical coal, limestone, and very less amount of scrap. However, in the EAF, scrap is the key raw material along with less energy consumption. According to the World Steel Association, crude steel production through the EAF process increased by 10.1% from 2017 to 2018. Growing steel production through the EAF process is a key driving factor for the market.

Ferrous scrap recycling is a market with lots of growth potential owing to increasing concerns over sustainability and depleting non-renewable resources. As a result, recycling is the most viable and efficient option to continue the production of metals owing to rapidly accelerating demand and at the same time causing minimal impact on the environment.
The recycling process involves certain steps, which are, scrap metal collection at yards, sorting, passing through radiation detector, shearing, shredding, separation of ferrous materials, media separation, and baling. After passing through all processing steps, the obtained blocks of ferrous scrap are transported to steel mills for further processing and are used in production.
Ferrous scrap is collected through various sources, where the key markets include construction, automotive, consumer goods, and industrial goods. The construction industry is the major contributor towards scrap generation as ferrous products recovered from the sector can be used directly if the quality is not impacted or else are sent for recycling.
Automotive is the second major sector in the market, as the recovery rate of scrap from vehicles often lies between 95-100%. Over 25 million vehicles are recycled across the world annually generating a large amount of scrap. The car recycling industry is a large market as it not only helps in reducing carbon footprint but also provides thousands of jobs and generates revenue for the economy. Over 80% of materials in a vehicle are recyclable, of which, metal is most accessible. In the U.S., around 18 million tons of steel is reused that helps in reducing air pollution by 86% and water pollution by 76%.
Based on region, Europe held the largest share in the market owing to the technological advancements, coupled with the presence of various recyclers in the region. As a result, the region is the largest exporter of ferrous scrap in the world, helping developing nations, which are still under the process to organize their scrap and recycling markets.
The competitive scenario of the market is high owing to the extremely unorganized nature of the market. Integration across various stages of the value chain is witnessed, for instance, automotive players setting up their own shredding units. In 2019, Maruti Suzuki and Toyota Tshusho Group announced a joint venture to set up a vehicle dismantling and recycling unit in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India by 2020-21.
