INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

As an important part of China’s national sustainable development strategy, development of a recycling industry is effectively relieving China’s problem of a resource shortage, and effectively relieving the pressure on China’s environment carrying capability. The state has put the recycling industry high on its development agenda for the next decade. China is drafting its first law on creating a so-called “circular economy” to provide a legal framework for its national sustainable development strategy. The recycling industry is in a key position to grow and benefit from this legal framework. With more than 1.3 billion people and steady economic growth, China has become one
of the fastest growing recycling markets in the world. BCC Research’s goal in conducting this study was to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current status of China’s recycling market and assess its growth potential over the 5-year period from 2013 to 2018. This BCC Research report will be of interest to all players in the recycling industry,
traders, investors, and other market stakeholders. In terms of volume, China represents the largest potential recycling capacity in the world.

The segments covered in this report are:

- Ferrous metals.
- Nonferrous metals.
- Plastics.
- Paper.
- E-waste.
- Tires.
- Ships.
- Automobiles.
