The process of dismantling and recycling old or unwanted vehicles is referred to as vehicle scrapping. It entails collecting old vehicles, draining their fluids, dismantling them carefully to salvage reusable parts, and shredding the remaining vehicle shell to separate materials for further recycling, such as steel, aluminum, rubber, plastics, and others. Before being melted, nonferrous metals are separated from other materials using separation technologies such as laser, infrared, eddy current, and flotation. The expansion of the vehicle scrapping market is being driven by rising environmental consciousness and the implementation of stringent emission regulations. Both governments and consumers are pushing for more environmentally friendly practices, which is increasing recycling and scrapping of old vehicles. Polluting vehicles are a major hindrance to a country's development. An effective car scrappage policy will reduce pollution while also providing other benefits such as a cleaner environment and new vehicle sales opportunities. Furthermore, government incentives and stringent global scrappage policy are the primary drivers of the scrappage market. However, ensure an adequate supply of end-of-life vehicle feedstock for recycling centers around the world is one of the challenges in the vehicle scrapping market. The vast majority of vehicle scrappers are unofficial and unorganized. As a result, because they lack intermediaries or channel partners for sourcing feedstock, these players find it difficult to outsource end-of-life vehicles.


COVID-19 Impact

The widespread COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on a number of industries, including the vehicle scrapping industry. During the early stages of the pandemic, many countries-imposed lockdowns and restrictions, creating economic uncertainty and reducing consumer spending. This reduced demand for new vehicles, reducing the number of cars on the road.


The steel segment accounted for the largest share of the global vehicle scrapping market during the forecast period.

Based on the material, the global vehicle scrapping market is classified into standard, multifunctional, induction, and others. Among these, the standard segment is expected to hold the largest share of the vehicle scrapping market during the forecast period. Steel is the most commonly recovered material from vehicle scrapping. The majority of a car's body and structure are made of steel, which is highly recyclable and in high demand for a variety of manufacturing processes. The increased awareness of environmental challenges, such as the need to reduce carbon emissions and protect finite resources, has increased the emphasis on implementing sustainability and circular economy principles.


The passenger segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.

Based on vehicle type, the global vehicle scrapping market is segmented into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. Among these, the passenger segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. Passenger vehicles surpass commercial vehicles in terms of ownership. As a result, the sheer number of passenger vehicles reaching the end of their lifecycle has increased, creating a larger pool of vehicles eligible for scrapping.


The new products manufacture segment is witnessing substantial CAGR growth over the forecast period.

Based on the application, the vehicle scrapping market is segmented into new products manufacture, and reusable parts. Among these, the new products manufacture segment is witnessing substantial CAGR growth over the forecast period. End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are constantly scrapped to make new vehicles, components, and consumer products, driving the growth of the new product manufacture segment during the forecast period. Recycling companies with advanced tools and facilities, such as ArcelorMittal, SIMS, and Aurubis AG, among others, sort and shred scrap to produce high-quality finished and semi-finished goods.


Asia Pacific dominates the market with the largest market share over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific dominates the market share over the forecast period. This region, which includes China and India, has seen significant economic growth and rapid urbanization. Individuals' preference for vehicle ownership grows in direct proportion to their income level. The growing middle class and higher living standards in the area have resulted in a significant increase in the size of the vehicle fleet.


The North American market is expected to record the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Rapid industrialization and urbanization in North America are key drivers of market growth. Another driver of growth is the widespread use of metal scrap, particularly steel scrap, in the production of more affordable, lightweight, and fuel-efficient vehicles.
