This Market Report examines the metal recycling market in the UK. Metal recyclers collect and process both ferrous and non-ferrous metal scrap — in addition to precious metal scrap — into secondary raw materials, which are then sold to steel mills, foundries and other industrial sectors to produce new metal products.

The UK metal recycling industry is crucial to the UK economy as it provides vital services to other industrial sectors, including manufacturing, engineering and construction. After declining in 2009 as a result of the economic downturn, the UK metal recycling market rebounded quickly in 2010 and grew further in 2011. However, the sector contracted again in 2012 — by 12.6% in volume terms and 13.3% in value — due to weak demand from both domestic and international markets. Despite this, a moderate growth of 2.6% by volume and 3.4% by value was estimated for 2013.

UK energy prices have been rising rapidly in the past few years, due to several EU and UK environmental taxes. According to the BBC, medium-sized industrial users of energy currently face energy cost that are on average between 15% and 21% higher as a result of these policies. READ MORE >
