Vehicle recycling refers to the process of disassembling automobiles to recover and recycle spare parts, fuel and scrap metals. This involves processes such as dismantling, crushing, shredding and material recovery through which magnetic pieces, sheet metals, seats, wheels and other components are retrieved.

Separation technologies, such as laser, infrared, eddy current and flotation methods, are used to isolate the non-ferrous metals from other materials, which are then sent for re-smelting. In addition to this, the reusable components are cleaned, tested and refurbished for resale, while the fluids are drained over an impervious surface and stored for later use.

The rapid industrialization and urbanization across the globe are among the key factors driving the growth of the market. Additionally, widespread adoption of metal scrap, especially steel, for the manufacturing of more affordable, lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, increasing consumer awareness regarding the environmental benefits of using recycled materials and minimizing the dependency on natural resources is also providing a boost to the market growth.

Automotive recyclers are utilizing sophisticated tools and methods to recycle used vehicles to extract polymers, fluids and natural materials that cause minimal damage to the environment. They are also using various innovative products, such as optical sensors, to identify small pieces of metal in the scrap. Other factors, including the increasing utilization of recycled batteries in the manufacturing of consumer electronics and the implementation of government regulations to minimize environmental hazards associated with the disposal of batteries, rubber, oils and other materials, are expected to drive the market in the upcoming years.

The publisher's latest report provides a deep insight into the global vehicle recycling market covering all its essential aspects. This ranges from macro overview of the market to micro details of the industry performance, recent trends, key market drivers and challenges, SWOT analysis, Porter's five forces analysis, value chain analysis, etc. This report is a must-read for industry players, investors, researchers, consultants, business strategists, and all those who have any kind of stake or are planning to foray into the vehicle recycling industry in any manner.
