The Nonferrous Metal Recycling industry's revenue has suffered in the past five years, as consumers and manufacturers have spent less on products recycled by this industry. However, the recovering manufacturing sector will benefit demand for industry products over the five years to 2021, as the industrial production index continues to rise. However, growing competition from overseas recyclers will hamper growth.
This industry recovers copper, aluminum, lead and other nonferrous metals from scrap and then manufactures primary forms (e.g. bar, billet, bloom, cake, ingot, slab, slug and wire) from the recovered metals through secondary smelting and refining processes.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
