In metals, scattering increases with temperature and hence the flow of electrons in restricted. In semiconductors, the number of charge carriers increases with temperature which overcomes the effect of on increasing scattering and hence the resistivity of semiconductors decreases with an increase in temperature but that of metals increases.
