In this report, Technavio highlights the growing demand for steel and stainless steel scrap as one of the key emerging trends driving the global stainless steel market:
Growing demand for steel and stainless steel scrap
The use of scraped steel and stainless steel around the world is increasing as it helps in reducing the carbon footprint. The recycling of steel and stainless steel scrap enhances the industry's economic viability and reduces the environmental impact by reducing the need for iron ore extraction for stainless steel production. This substantially reduces the CO2 emissions, minimizes energy and water consumption, and lowers the air pollution. On an average, 1.79 metric tons of CO2 is saved for each metric ton of scrap steel. Thus, steel and stainless steel scrap have become the preferred choice of raw materials for stainless steel producers.
"Iron ore and steel or stainless steel scrap can be used alone or in combination with other raw materials for the preparation of stainless steel. The demand for steel and stainless steel scrap is highly affected by the fluctuating prices of iron ore. Owing to an increase in the electricity and energy costs, manufacturers have started using steel and stainless steel scrap as the primary raw materials to decrease their overall cost of production," says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals.
