Global Non Ferrous Scrap Market: Dynamics

Economic benefit of recycling increasing the demand for non-ferrous scrap materials

Across the world, metals, both non-ferrous and ferrous are used in everyday life. Conservation of mineral resources has gained importance with increase in population. Non-ferrous metals are recyclable, and the manufacturing industry is using scrap as a raw material to meet the needs of society. Generally, the cost of refining a new non-ferrous metal is more than cost of production from non-ferrous scrap. For example, as per U.S. Aluminum Association, 90.0% less electricity is required to produce aluminum from scrap than from bauxite (aluminum ore).

Rise in usage of non-ferrous materials increasing demand for non-ferrous scrap

Across the world, rise in demand for non-ferrous materials is increasing the demand for non-ferrous scrap. According to Bureau of International Recycling (BIR), global usage of copper scrap was 5.9 million tons in 2000 which increased 40.0% to reach 8.3 million tons in 2015. Over the same period, the London Metal Exchange (LME) price of copper increased from US$ 1,814 to US$ 5,502 per ton which increased the market size of copper recycling from US$ 10.7 Billion to US$ 46.0 Billion.
