Pandemic weighs on metals recycling impacts pricing
India’s pandemic-ravaged ferrous metals recycling industry is trying its best to emerge fit after a therapeutic bout of government sops in the form of detention charges waiver at ports during the lockdown. The important factor till the end of the current fiscal would be the expected second wave of COVID-19. Some countries in Europe have already announced one-month lockdowns. If more follow suit to control the pandemic then demand and prices both can be impacted. As it is, there is a scarcity in global scrap supplies due to lower production, factors which are keeping prices firm.
