Going to waste: As metal prices begin to fall back, waste and scrap wholesalers see their revenue dip

Waste and scrap wholesalers are mostly smaller companies that collect and buy materials before reselling them to larger processors. Some larger businesses sort and process recyclable products before wholesaling them to metal, plastic and glass manufacturers. Scrap metal makes up the bulk of industry sales, but plastic and glass are also key. Companies in this industry wholesale metal and non-metal waste and scrap for recycling. This involves collecting, sorting and separating waste. It also involves stripping used goods, such as cars, to obtain reusable parts. Industry operators do not process the material they collect in any way.

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.
