A scraper is one of the most prized possessions in the world, with an estimated value of $3 million.
The scrap yard has seen its fair share of items go up in price over the years, including a prized piece of silverware valued at $7.6 million in 2017, and a prized diamond valued at a staggering $2.2 million in 2015.
But scraper prices are now on the decline, according to The Advertiser.
In fact, scraper value has fallen by over 50 per cent in the past decade, according the Advertisers report, which found that scraper price is now around $1,000.
“This is an amazing turnaround for scraper values, and is a great indicator of how scraper owners are spending their time and money,” the report says.
“Many people are finding their passion for scraping is the most important thing to them, so it’s a great opportunity for them to keep their passion alive and grow.”

But the scrapper industry is booming again, with the scraping industry employing up to 40,000 people and generating a total $40 billion in revenue in Australia last year.
“There is no doubt that scrapping has taken off in the last 10 years,” Dr. Tom Henshaw, chief executive officer of the Australian Cricketer’s Association, told The Adazionepost.
“It’s definitely an industry where people are really keen to find work and make money.”
And we are seeing the increase in the demand for these jobs.
“So what’s driving scraper interest?”
The industry has been growing quite strongly for quite some time, especially over the last 20 years,” he said.”
The scrapping industry was really popular at the beginning, and then it became more and more popular, and there was a real need for people to be able to do this, to be in a job.
“So why the scrapping craze?”
There’s a lot of reasons that we think there is a boom in scrapping, and that’s for two reasons,” Dr Henshaws said.
It’s partly due to the changing economy, with people wanting to find a better quality of life in a more efficient way.”
People have moved away from a less expensive, less environmentally friendly way of doing things, and so they’ve really been looking to do more with less,” he explained.”
In a lot, if not all, of these scrapping jobs people are getting paid to do, and they’re earning a decent wage and getting on with their lives.
“But there’s also the fact that we’re getting more and a bigger number of Australians going into the job market, and we’re also seeing an increasing number of employers wanting to recruit workers who are in a scrapping job.”
So it’s quite a different economy that we are living in now.””
There are also some very talented and motivated people working in scraping, and the demand is so high that it’s really appealing.
