Published Date : Apr 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Automation and Transport

The global battery recycling market size is projected to reach around USD 18.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11.3% from 2020 to 2027.

Battery recycling is referred to the collection of batteries through various sources including automotive, industrial, consumer & electronics appliances, and recovery of metals of element through recycling. The global market estimation includes the revenue reported by selling these recovered metals or elements weather that goes into further battery recycling or other applications. Reportedly, most of metals recovered go into battery manufacturing.

The global battery recycling market is expected to witnessprofitable growth opportunities during the forecast period. This is attributed to reduction of toxic effect of metals used in batteries and the second application of the similar metals through recycling. Furthermore, high recycling rate associated with lead-acid battery and increase infocus on the lithium-ion battery further fuelthe global battery recycling market growth. On the contrary, complication related to lithium-ion batteries expected to hamper the overall market growth during the forecast period. Growing focus on lithium ion battery recycling is one of the recent battery recycling market trend observed in the recent years.

By chemistry

By chemistry, the lead-acid battery accounted for largest battery recycling market share in 2018, and is anticipated to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to the recyclable nature of lead-acid batteries. Moreover, these batteries cannot be disposed of or landfilled, as lead is toxic in nature. Hence, they represent more than 80% recycling rate, and therefore they are collected at a mass level once used. It is estimated that 98% of used lead-acid batteries are recycled,and subsequently lead is used in second life applications, thereby boosting the growth of this segment.

By Source

By source, industrial batteries are the largest source in this market. In an industrial application such as a forklift, emergency power backup, heavy machinery, and UPS systems; lead-acid batteries are considered an ideal source of power which are cost-competitive, heavyweight, and maintenance-free. This is further linked with the high recycling rate associated with lead-acid batteries which make the industrial segment the largest contributor in this market. Telecom and data communication industry is the prominent consumer of lead-acid batteries in the industrial segment which depend on high efficient power backup. Therefore, heavyweight lead-acid batteries remain the first choice in this industry. Furthermore, forklift trucks use these heavyweight lead-acid batteries that help them to increase weight lifting capacity. As a result, these trucks have a proven track record in material movement applications which is possible because of lead-acid batteries.

By Application

By the application,transportation is the major revenue contributing segment in 2018. This can be highly credible to the high purity associated with recycled metals i.e. lithium 99.9%, cobalt 99.6%, nickel 99.7%. Metal with purity below 99.4% is not considered for second life battery manufacturing used in the automotive and transportation industry. Hence, these three metals are highly used in battery manufacturing for their second life application in electric vehicles. As a result, the growing trend for electric vehicles and efforts to eliminate the adverse effect of landfilling metals; lithium, cobalt, and nickel-based batteries are recycled and further used in second life battery manufacturing for electric vehicles.

By Region

By region, Europe region accounted for around 36% market share in the global battery recycling market which is the largest market among all regions. This can be highly credible to significant support by European Union governments and regulatory bodies present in the region that have been regulating favorable policies for recycling. European Union has passed directive with the aim of a high battery recycling rate 2006. This directive stated that at least 30% of batteries used across the region must be collected for recycling at the end of 2012 which increased up to 45% in 2016, and the recycling rate must report over 50% of collected batteries. Therefore, battery recycling is considered a legislative approach in this region which is the major factor that makes this region the largest one in the battery recycling market.
