Global Recycling Plants Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Recycling plants are factories that recycle waste materials into new products. Recycling plants are important because they help reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills, and they also create new products from recycled materials.


Automatic Recycling is a process in which materials are processed without any human intervention. It is also known as robotic technology or automatic processing. In this process, material handling and transportation are carried out by machines without the help of any operator. The technology has evolved over time with various improvements and developments in the field of robotics, computer science, automation engineering along with material handling equipment such as forklifts and palletsizers  among others.


Semi-automatic recycling plant is a type of waste processing equipment used to recycle solid, non-hazardous waste. The semi-automatic recycling plant consists of screening and sorting equipment, feed & pulverization systems, grinding & crushing systems and a discharger. The major advantage offered by these plants is that they can be easily upgraded when new technologies become available without having to replace the entire system or incur any substantial loss in production capacity.

Application Insights:

The metal metallurgical industry was the dominant application segment in the global recycling plants market, accounting for over 30% of the total revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for recyclable metals from various end-use industries including construction and electrical & electronics.

Automobile industry is expected to emerge as one of the fastest growing segments over the forecast period owing to rising environmental concerns regarding waste disposal and growing awareness among consumers regarding vehicle recyclability. Increasing production of electric vehicles is also likely to have a positive impact on segment growth during future period. In addition, stringent government regulations pertaining to automotive scrap disposal are further anticipated to boost product demand from automobile industry during future period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global population, with China and India being among the most populous countries in the world. This has led to an increase in demand for recyclable materials, which is anticipated to drive regional growth over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific was followed by North America, which accounted for 24% of total revenue share in 2017 owing to growing recycling activities coupled with stringent environmental regulations implemented by various governments across U.S., Canada and Mexico that have mandated waste management through recycling processes at source level thus promoting overall sustainability of products/waste generated thereby driving industry growth.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of recycling among consumers
  • Government initiatives and regulations to promote recycling
  • Rise in disposable income of consumers, which will lead to an increase in demand for recycled products
  • Development of innovative technologies that make recycling easier and more efficient
  • Growing popularity of eco-friendly/sustainably produced products
