According to the World Scrap Metal Association the demand for scrap steel will hit 1.55b metric tons in 2013, a 5.6% increase from 2012 which will mean an increase in the scrap metal price paid in smaller cities such as Apache Junction, Arizona. I Buy Scrap Recycling, an Apache Junction, Arizona based scrap metal recycling company reports that the demand increases for scrap steel will come from China, Turkey, European Union and even the US, though at a slower rate. Other international scrap metal markets that help fuel an increase in scrap metal recycling prices such as India will also see noted increased demand perhaps up to 15.1% next year.
Japan who has been a major scrap metal buyer over the past few years will likely slow due to its depreciated currency and weak construction markets.
While scrap metal recycling demand numbers appear positive, metal scrap prices have trended lower in recent weeks. According to I Buy Scrap Recycling Apache Junction, AZ , prices should hold steady and should start to see an upswing in the months ahead.
