Partnership Details:

To ensure the success of this venture, DeSME has appointed a dedicated ground agent who will manage all financial aspects of our partnership. Acting as the liaison between DeSME and the scrap dealership, this agent will oversee the acquisition and resale of industrial scrap on our behalf.

Breaking down the investment structure, DeSME plans to invest a total of approximately $3600 USD, disbursed over a three-month period. The initial investment of around $1200 will be made in the upcoming week, followed by two subsequent investments of a similar amount in January and February 2024.

Projections indicate an expected net margin ranging between 40% and 60%. As part of the partnership terms, DeSME is entitled to 40% of the generated profits. With a carefully calculated timeline, our projections estimate reaching the breakeven point by the conclusion of December 2023, paving the way for anticipated profits thereafter.

In the bustling South Asia region, this market is thriving, bolstered by a multitude of small-scale businesses dealing in scrap. A recent report from the Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry of India estimated the market for second-hand and recycled products to be worth $12,814 million, a significant rise from $11,027 million in 2012. Given the current growth trajectory, the market is projected to exceed $18,379 million by 2025. Within this landscape, the metal recycling business plays a pivotal role. Globally, this industry is a colossal $500 billion enterprise, employing approximately 1.5 million people. In South Asia alone, the industry is worth more than $11 billion and provides jobs for 600,000 to 700,000 individuals.

However, this is not just a story of growth and economic opportunity. The industrial scrap and recycling industry also plays a crucial role in environmental sustainability. It provides an effective solution for managing industrial waste, thus reducing the amount of material that ends up in landfills and mitigating the environmental impact of mining for new materials. For instance, recycling one ton of steel conserves 1,400 pounds of coal, while recycling aluminum cans saves 95% of the energy required to produce new ones.

Moreover, technological advancements and innovative practices are paving the way for further expansion and efficiency in this sector. New recycling technologies are being developed and implemented, such as advanced scrap sorting machines, innovative shredding techniques, and environmentally friendly refining processes. These technologies not only boost recycling rates but also enhance the quality of recycled materials, making them competitive with their newly manufactured counterparts.

Regulatory support is also a significant factor driving the industry’s growth. Governments worldwide are recognizing the economic and environmental benefits of recycling and are implementing policies to support the industry. This includes offering tax benefits for companies engaging in recycling activities, implementing stricter waste management policies, and promoting public awareness about the benefits of recycling.

In conclusion, the industrial scrap and recycling market is set for robust growth in the coming years, driven by factors ranging from economic benefits to environmental sustainability. As such, it is poised to move from the periphery to the core of our industrialized world, asserting its role not just as a byproduct, but as a vital cog in the wheel of sustainable development. With the right support and continued innovation, this industry has the potential to make significant contributions to both our economy and our environment.
