Rise in Construction Activities Worldwide Generating Demand and Growth Opportunities for Metal Recycling Companies

Palm Beach, FL – June 18, 2024 – The Metal Recycling industry is a strong market across the globe. A report from Market Research Future projected that the Metal Recycling Market Size, which was valued at USD 54200.2 million in 2023, is projected to grow from USD 58800.4 million in 2024 to USD 105100.8 Million by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.50% during the forecast period (2024 – 2032). Increasing awareness regarding the depletion of metal reserves and the stringent regulations imposed by the government regarding metal mining are the key market drivers enhancing market for global metal recycling.  The report said: “The rise in construction activities across various regions, such as Europe and Asia-Pacific, is expected to fuel the  metal recycling market growth. The rapid economic growth brought on by increased urbanization and industrialization increases demand for the market for metal recycling. Therefore, rapid urbanization leads to higher government and consumer spending on infrastructure and housing, which positively impacts market growth. In addition, recycling metals help the industry create jobs and contribute to the country’s economy. For instance, an industry that generates $236 billion in revenue annually in the US employs over a million people.”  Active companies in the markets this week include Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: GWAV), Enviri Corporation (NYSE: NVRI), PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCT), Steel Dynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ: STLD), Stericycle, Inc. (NASDAQ: SRCL).


Market Research Future added: “The recycling sector in the United States generates $116.8 billion in economic output while the increase in the construction of buildings owing to the increase in the disposal of building waste into landfills is another factor driving the growth of the metal recycling market revenue. For instance, 30% of all building materials brought to a normal construction site may be wasted. Also, nearly 145 million tonnes of waste were dumped in U.S. landfills in 2018 due to construction and demolition projects.”

Other recent developments in the recycling industry of note include:


Enviri Corporation (NYSE: NVRI) recently reported first quarter 2024 results. Revenues in the first quarter of 2024 totaled $600 million, an increase of 7 percent compared with the comparable quarter in 2023. GAAP operating income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2024 was $26 million and Adjusted EBITDA was $78 million in the quarter, an increase of 19 percent over the prior-year quarter.


On a U.S. GAAP (“GAAP”) basis, the first quarter of 2024 diluted loss per share from continuing operations was $0.21, after strategic expenses and a long-lived asset adjustment in Harsco Rail. The adjusted diluted loss per share from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2024 was $0.03. These figures compare with first quarter of 2023 GAAP diluted loss per share from continuing operations of $0.11, including a net gain on a lease to relocate a site, and adjusted diluted loss per share from continuing operations of $0.10.


“Enviri delivered another quarter of strong performance, as we continue to benefit from firm demand for our environmental solutions and solid execution by our team,” said Enviri Chairman and CEO Nick Grasberger. “Our results were supported by healthy underlying volumes in key end-markets and favorable cost performance relative to our earlier expectations, supported by internal efficiency initiatives. We expect that business performance will remain strong in the coming quarters and our 2024 outlook for Clean Earth and Harsco Environmental (cash earnings and cash flow) remains largely consistent with the guidance provided in February.”


PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCT), recently announced that the Company’s flagship purification facility in Ironton, Ohio is demonstrating improved reliability and product quality since resuming operations.  The Ironton Facility initially resumed operations the week of May 20. On May 22, severe storms across the Midwest, caused an area-wide power outage that impacted the Ironton Facility. Prior to the power outage, the Company began with feed rates of 2,500 pounds per hour and reached rates of 5,500 pounds per hour right before the storm.


Operations again resumed on May 30 after needed equipment repairs were completed. The Company restarted with feed rates at 2,500 pounds per hour and has subsequently reached rates of up to 6,000 pounds per hour. The Ironton Facility has produced approximately 265,000 pounds of pellets since operations resumed on May 30.  During the restarts there have been operational interruptions to address minor maintenance items, calibration of digital upgrades, and utility rebalancing for continuous operations.


Steel Dynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ: STLD) recently provided second quarter 2024 earnings guidance in the range of $2.64 to $2.68 per diluted share. Comparatively, the company’s sequential first quarter 2024 earnings were $3.67 per diluted share, and prior year second quarter earnings were $4.81 per diluted share.  Second quarter 2024 profitability from the company’s steel operations are expected to be meaningfully lower than sequential first quarter results, based on lower realized pricing offsetting steady shipments. Underlying domestic steel demand remains intact although steel buying hesitancy has resulted from a weakening scrap price environment.  The automotive, non-residential construction, energy, and industrial sectors continue to lead demand.  Second quarter 2024 earnings from the company’s metals recycling operations are expected to be higher than sequential first quarter results, based on stronger volumes in both ferrous and nonferrous materials.

Adjusted income from operations was $90.5 million, compared to $84.7 million in the first quarter of 2023. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.57 compared to $0.49 in the first quarter of 2023. Cash from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was an outflow of $54.5 million compared to an inflow of $49.5 million in the same period of 2023.
