Houston Scrap Metal Recycling Demand Projected to Grow

Houston scrap metal recycling demand is projected to grow as global use increases despite fears of a deepening global recession. According to a study by Straits Research and reported by Globe Newswire, demand for recycled metal should grow by an annual CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of nearly 6% and Houston is no exception.  Metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, copper and the others accepted by Gulf Coast Scrap Metal will lead the growing demand as manufacturers seek more cost effective and environmentally friendly ways to produce refined metal as opposed to relying on increasing scarce and depleted iron ore reserves.
