Despite some problems with counterfeit currency trading in China and policy changes in importing recycled metals or scrap metals, the scrap metal industry still looks strong in the future. Other industrial countries, such as India, Mexico, Canada, Japan, Taiwan and Germany, continue to buy valuable ferrous and non-ferrous metals.


The world iron and Steel Association estimates that except for China, the growth rate of the global iron and steel industry will remain at a positive slope of 0.9%. The most exciting news is that the industry will grow by 2.8% in 2018 as some developing economies, such as Brazil, see a recovery. It is estimated that the US steel industry will increase exports by US $446 million in 2019.
