Battery Recycling Market by Chemistry (Lead-acid Battery, Lithium-based Battery, Nickel-based Battery, and Others), Source (Automotive Batteries, Industrial Batteries, and Consumer & Electronics Appliance Batteries), and Application (Transportation, Consumer Electronics, Industrial, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026
The global battery recycling market was valued at $8.0 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $18.3billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2019 to 2026.
Batteries consist of number of heavy metals and toxic chemicals such as lead and sulfuric acid. Disposing them by the same process as regular waste can negatively impacts the environment. Hence, battery recycling process is adopted to decrease the number of batteries being disposed as municipal solid wastes and to encourage efficient use of battery. Most type of batteries such as power tools, smartphone batteries, and automotive batteries can be recycled. Battery recycling prevents the environment from hazardous effects such as soil contamination and water pollution. The method of recycling differs as per the type of the battery. Hence, it is necessary to separate the batteries before recycling. Furthermore, in 2019, the U.S.Department of Energy announced plans for a $20.5 million investment in Li-ion battery recycling with goal of boosting capture rates from 85–90%. Moreover, in 2017, 46% of sold batteries in the EU were collected for recycling.
Factors such as government regulations and rise in awareness among people toward environmental safety are expected to drive the growth of the global battery recycling market. However, leakage of harmful chemicals from batteries, improper dismantling, and improper shredding are expected to hamper the market growth. However, surge in demand for electric vehicles, where recycled batteries are used as a cost-effective solution is expected to create lucrative opportunity for the battery recycling market.
