Key Takeaways from Metal Recycling Equipment Market:

  • The Asia-Pacific holds the largest market share. It, in fact, contributes for more than 40% of the overall revenue. This could be credited to a noteworthy increase in acquisitions, mergers, site relocations, and integration activities all across. The government of China altered the import limitations regarding copper and aluminum in January 2021, which is expected to bolster the metal recycling equipment market.
  • MEA alone is expected to witness a CAGR of ~5% in the metal recycling equipment market. This could be reasoned with growing investments in textile equipment, aircraft production, and fabrication of metallic items.
  • North America and Europe are witnessing steadiness in the metal recycling equipment market and expected to continue to be the same even going forward.

“The fact that metals have pretty good recyclability and sustainability is likely to take the metal recycling equipment to a new ‘high’ in the near future”, says an analyst from Future Market Insights.
